This a current project and although filming finished at the end of last summer we are still in post production.
The synopsis of the film is:
Three damaged teenagers from a children's home skip school and go for a walk in the countryside. They stumble upon a camp buried deep in the woods where they meet a homeless ex-serviceman. He challenges their attitudes and tries to make them see the folly of their ways. When they realise he is not who he seems and has a dark secret they feel tricked and betrayed. The tension rises and the story takes a dark turn.
The cast of the film are:
Lucas Bradshaw: Wes
Sophie Curd: Rachel
Lewis Pickles: Dan
Our film crew are:
Sofy Bazzini: Camera
Adam Fontaine: Sound Design
Steve Hogg: Editor and Co-Producer
Bernadett Horvath: Sound Design
Louise Morrell: Art Director
Paul Ramshaw: Director and Co-Producer
Andy Wilkin: Director of Photography
The film was written and directed by Paul Ramshaw who I met through the Across The Dark Water project.
To get a sense of the film have a look at this trailer we created:
The music track and the opening music track is the song You Don't Know What It's Like (To Live My Life) that I wrote and recorded with The Reaktors.We filmed on a Digital SLR camera on location in the housing estate behind The Joiners in the St Mary's area of Southampton as well as in Eastleigh and the forest of Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Hampshire. Many thanks are due to the ranger at the park for supporting the filming and for permission to film there.
At the moment we are deep in post production. As we have no budget all work is evenings and weekends and a labour of love rather than for profit. Once the film is complete it will run to about 30 minutes and we plan to submit it to film festivals.
