Freak

1988 , Leeds (West Yorkshire)

Teenage girl day dreams about transforming her appearance from schoolgirl to punk rocker.

Set to a soundtrack by GBH, a teenage schoolgirl transforms her appearance. The film begins with shots of photographs of punk rockers. It is followed by a stop motion animation and a sequence of shots of the girl on the school premises in uniform. The girl sits at a desk with textbooks open in front of her and she flicks through them. She looks at the photographs that have been used in the opening sequences. In a daydream sequence using time lapse photography, the girl transforms her appearance. She applies make-up and alters her hairstyle, before posing for the camera. The daydream over, the film concludes with the girl back at her desk in school uniform. She starts to work.
