A film we supplied the supporting cast to just won an award in the best director category. Our director Uberto Pasolini (THE FULL MONTY) wins for the film ‘Still Life’ starring Eddie Marsan (WAR HORSE, THE WORLDS END, SOUTHCLIFFE) Joanne Froggatt (DOWNTON ABBEY, IN OUR NAME)
Its A poignant, quixotic tale of love, life and about the afterlife.
Meticulous and organized to the point of obsession, John May is a council worker charged with finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. When his department is downsized, John must up his efforts on his final case, taking him on a liberating journey that allows him to start living life at last.
When we made this I said it was going to be tragic but also beautiful and when describing the story to our supporting artists on set I would often get shivers up my spine as if…..well I’m not sure but it’s a wonderful story and am pleased its been recognised by this award. Well done to all the cast and crew and especially from me the supporting actors.
‘The Magnificent Eleven’ from Angry Badger Pictures was made iTunes movie of the week this week and is currently in nymber 1 spot above Tarantino and Ryan Gosling in the Drama Chart, Its also number 1 in the comedy chart and 5th place overall watched films but am thinking it would be fantastic to get that into first place tomorrow so urge you to watch it.
Directed by Peepshows Jeremy Wooding, written by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) and John Adams (Victim) Starring Robert Vaughn, Sean Pertwee and Keith Allen its a modernisation of the classic western in which the Cowboys are a struggling local amateur soccer team, the Indians run a nearby Tandoori restaurant and the bandits are a group of menacing thugs led by a maniac known simply as ‘American Bob’.
Am just saying but iTunes are so pleased with the numbers on ‘The Magnificent Eleven’ this week that they are planning to extend the ‘Film of the Week’ promotion for another week. Er, surely that makes it ‘Film of the Fortnight’?
Now thats great news but also another film from ‘Tea Shop & Film Co.’ and that we supplied the extras to went stateside this week and today won the John Waters Prize for Best Midnight Film today at the Traverse City Film Festival. Cockneys vs Zombies is the film about a gang of bank robbers fight their way out of a zombie-infested London starring Honor Blackman Dudley Sutton, Alan Ford, Rasmus Hardiker, Harry Treadaway, Michelle Ryan and Richard Briers. CVZ was also the number 1 trailer on iTunes last week. Maybe I should have started this post with a drum roll but am proud to be associated with both production companies and the film. Thanks to them and all the extras because like both directors have said many times “We couldn’t have done it without you’
Here is the director Mathias Hoene talking about the film and eating on set with the Zombies to ‘Shout Out;
