This Way Up

Loughton, United Kingdom

With visually spectacular storytelling, and a retro synthesized soundtrack, This Way Up illuminates the tale of a very normal girl in a very normal job.

University is over.

Alex worked for three years and now she's taken one small step into tax and debt and one giant leap into a call centre. But how long before part-time becomes full-time?

Alex is desperate to make it as an artist. Distracting her from her failures is Mark; hiding in the store room, popping bubble-wrap, and pretending to be an astronaut. As she struggles to work out if growing up is about holding on or letting go of ambition, she is presented with an opportunity she can’t refuse. 

A heart-warming tale of the lost generation, told with live music, office humour and an ambitious cardboard set. There will be space travel. And David Bowie.
