INT. ELSENHAM. MY HOUSE. MORNING.
My friend sets up the camera in front of my bed as I sit
comfortably in bed getting ready to answer some questions.
Okay i think everything is set up,
you've got the microphone?
Yeah i do, should i start
Whenever you're ready.
I press record on the microphone and we start filming.
So, how long have you been living
in england for?
I'd say about 5 years, nearly 6.
Do you consider yourself english or
Spanish. Definitely spanish.
I guess because i was born there
and my parents are both spanish. I
don't think the country you live in
has anything to do with who you
So if you were given the option to
move back, would you do it?
Hell no. Even though i constantly
moan about the weather i wouldn't
even consider moving back there.
So you'd stay here with the rain
and clouds instead of going to
Spain with the heat and sun? Im
gonna need a good explanation for
that answer. (laughs)
I think thats the only thing wrong
with this country. The food its not
too bad, and the education is
definitely better and its really
important, especially now. So i
rather stay here and go back for
holidays. Plus i've met a lot of
great people over here.
Like me. So was it hard to move to
another country when you were 12?
Oh obviously (laughs) I actually
don't remember much... But i know i
hated how i couldn't socialise with
people because i hardly knew any
English. But i mean even the people
are different, they're more closed
about themselves which made it even
So how long did it take you to
learn the language completely?
I'd say a few months, maybe 5 or
I think its time to go out and get
some footage of your little
We'll need about 10 minutes and
we'll be done.(laugh)
EXT. ELSENHAM. MORNING.
Me and my friend head outside to see what elsenham is like
and get some shots of the houses and shops, including the
Okay well I'm guessing the design
of the houses are obviously
different. What about Elsenham
Well Elsenham is pretty small, i
don't think we have such a small
villages in spain. Not where I used
to live anyway.
INT. ELSENHAM. MY HOUSE. AFTERNOON.
My friend and i go back to my house to interview my family
members about the impact that had on their lives when they
moved to England.
We walk towards the living room where my mum is sat down
watching tv and i sit next to her. He set up the camera and
the tripod making sure the lighting is right.
Right okay, so tell me. If you
could move back to spain, would
I definitely would, i hate it over
here. The weather, the people,
Hey, what's wrong with the people?
They're just so horrible. Mainly
women, they just look at you and
Also what about the food? Dont you
eat earlier in spain?
Well she still cooks spanish food
so thats not much different.
Well over there we would all be sat
at the table by 2pm then we would
be eating until 3pm but here its
completely different. People either
eat at 5pm or 8pm.
Do you know how to cook english
Oh yeah, I make Sheppard's pies,
roast dinners etc.
Oh nice, overall are you glad to
move to england?
I would say I am because schools
are way better over here and we
stayed I don't think Paula would
have gotten very far with how she
was doing over there whereas in
here shes doing way better. And I
have two other sons and another
daughter who are younger so it
benefits them too.
EXT. ELSENHAM. MY HOUSE. NIGHT
We go back upstairs to my room as we talk about all the
footage we've got and to pack our suitcases.
Right i think my suitcase its done,
are you done? Because we've 10
minutes until we have to leave your
Yes, i need to find my shoes though
and im all done.
Are you excited to go back?
I am, i literally cannot wait. Cant
wait to see my uncles as well.
Haven't seen them since summer
which wasn't that long ago but it
feels like its been forever.
INT. AIRPORT. NIGHT.
We get the camera, batteries and chargers along with our
suitcases. We drive to the airport and we get on the plane.
Here we come Spain!
INT. PLANE. NIGHT.
The plane finally lands after 2hours and a half of a flight
and we meet my uncle at the airport.
Hey, how was the flight?
So long, and she slept for the
whole flight so it was pretty
Right so how about we get home, get
some sleep and tomorrow morning we
set off and i can be your private
taxi for the day?
Yeah that sounds good.
EXT. SPAIN. MORNING
We wake up, have breakfast and we grab all we need to get
ready for a whole day of filming.
What's the first stop then?
Im curious to see your old house to
Should we go there then?
Yeah we could do. Yeah, do it.
EXT. SPAIN. OLD HOUSE. MORNING.
We get out of the car as we arrive to my old house to expect
it and compare it to my new house in england. This will also
have some good shots of the area where the house is.
Oh wow. Its got three floors?
Yeah it was pretty big. My mum was
working for the company who owned
it so we didnt actually have to pay
the whole price.
