Urban Queens Mini-Documentary

Intend­ed as the first in a series, this mini-doc­u­men­tary is a self-ini­ti­at­ed cul­tur­al com­men­tary, star­ring young women who reg­u­lar­ly use and fre­quent tan­ning salons, nail salons, beau­ty salons and bronz­ing clin­ics in the South Essex area of the UK.

The style is that of vox pop­uli (latin for ‘voice of the peo­ple’) — this means there is no nar­ra­tive or com­men­tary voice-over. Most often seen dur­ing news seg­ments, this style allows the per­son­al­i­ty and atti­tudes of the inter­view sub­jects to become par­tic­u­lar­ly appar­ent.
