Boys on a Train
Five online teenage buddies meet up, go inter railing together and they are empowered to decide what is filmed on this adventure. Selfies, likes, promotions and comment feeds. In a constant upkeep and branding of your online personality, how do you grow up as a teenager? BOYS ON A TRAIN is a coming of age story, a self-presentation from five teenage boys going on a rite of passage. They are best online friends, that have never met in real life as a group. Boys are testing their identity and friendship by going for a 15 day inter rail trip with a film crew through Europe. They can decide what should be filmed to present them correctly by saying “action” and “cut”.
