Geraldine Hakewill and David Field on surreal debut feature The Pretend One

22 February 2016 3:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Star Geraldine Hakewill on set.

In 2010, filmmaker Tony Prescott studied directing at Aftrs, where "the education was based on making a feature, but we made short films"..

"I don't think I'm very good at making short films", Prescott told If.

In 2011 he started developing an idea for a feature that he developed over five years - and forty drafts - with fellow Aftrs student James Raue (whose own first film, Psychoanalysis, is currently touring festivals).

The Pretend One is about a young woman (Wanted's Geraldine Hakewill) and her imaginary friend (Michael Whalley).

Their relationship becomes complicated when a suitor comes to town and Whalley's character becomes jealous.

Talking to people about the kind of Australian film he wanted to make, Prescott "struggled to find a reference".

"One of the closest I could think of was Paperback Romance. [Generally] We don't do magic and we don't do romance".
