The Chased goes into production

Our second short film goes into production today. Filmed in the amazing basement bar at The Belgian Cafe, and the underground corridors of The Burlington Hotel, the shooting period will be going through the nights while the restaurant and bar above are closed. Featuring Steve Nicolson, Viv Berry, Greg Draven, Calum Speed, and Fenia Gianni, the story focuses on what life would be like if all the arts were banned. Written before the coronavirus struck, this dystopian drama has had a few delays in production, but we're over the moon to get it made, following all the guidelines on social distancing and the new protocols for filming.

Curveball goes into production

Our first short goes into production today. Filmed at the beautiful Chalk Farm Hotel, Eastbourne, a working hotel and centre for training adults with learning disabilities, and the farm which George Orwell based the novel 'Animal Farm' on, Curveball focuses on what is sometimes the first difficult decision a special needs parent has to make - whether to go ahead with a special needs pregnancy or not. Featuring our own Greg Draven and Brighton-based actor Fenia Gianni, we are very excited to have our short centre on a topic dear to our hearts.
