Summer Camp to film teen movie documentary 'Beyond Clueless'

09 January 2013, 11:14 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton


Summer Camp are set to make a documentary film based on teen movies of the late-90s and early 2000s.

The London electronic duo, who are currently at work on their second LP, are involved in the project fronted by film writer and Guardian journalist Charlie Lyne.

The feature-length clip will also feature the likes of Jakwob producer Billy Boyd Cape and Hometape musician Anthony Ing.

The team have so far surpassed their £9,500 target on Kickstarter, having been pledged a grand total of £9,785 by 369 backers (at current standings).

This is what they have to say about the project:

“Beyond Clueless will be the first major study — in any medium — of the teen movie revolution that occurred in the ten years that separated the releases of Clueless in 1995 and Mean Girls in 2004. Part historical account, part close textual analysis, part audiovisual mood piece and part head-over-heels love letter to the teen genre, the film will examine more than two hundred films released during this decade-long idyll, in terms of their characters, themes and what they had to say for themselves.

No punches will be pulled in the search for teen movie truth.”

You can watch an introduction video below. The project will begin on Monday 14 January 2013.
