glowsticks & drumsticks

 

synopsis

Two teenage girls, Tyler and Toni, embark on their first encounter with Electronic Music Subculture - they're going to their first Rave. However, they get lost and find themselves in an underground Rock Show. The evening looks dour until an unexpected encounter leads to a giddy explosion of dancing.
"Glowsticks and Drumsticks" bookends a narrative short film with a kinetic music video - a device most famously explored in Michael Jackson's "Thriller".
