They were acting out the movie, it was half term for this bunch and making the most of it they were. The area is safe so children of all ages roam free, creativity is second nature, making something out of nothing is normal. These impressive weapons are made from the garden, the sound effects from within mimic the movies, as do the crazy reactions to being shot with invisible bullets.
I had never met them but of course, enjoyed launching a few fruit grenades into their territory, I'd have done this anyway with or without some portraits in mind, but trust has to be earned. The journey took me 25 minutes to get back to my house and grab my kit, then with a little help from some friends, their parents, and a promise I would make them their own movie, I created these portraits, for me, for them, for the moment.
