What have we been up to this autumn? Well, here's our latest update to tell you all about it!
Developing a new animated feature, with Sam Morrison.
Shooting a new rom-com TV movie for Reel One Entertainment.
Future TX has its world premiere and is released across the UK via Odeon
Future TX, our new sci-fi family film, enjoyed a UK & Ireland theatrical release, via Odeon cinemas. This is incredible news; we never really anticipated the film as a cinema release, more like streaming fare, so it's a great boost for the production & everyone involved. Check out our exciting trailer below!
If you didn't get to an Odeon cinema during half term, then you've probably missed your chance of seeing it on the big screen. But don't worry, we'll let you know when it's next available via streaming or TV.
Just prior to the cinema release, we had the world premiere at the Cinemagic Family Film Festival in Belfast. Our lead star Griff Rhys Jones turned up for the event, and the kids in attendance absolutely loved him and the film. They completely flocked Griff afterwards - the comedy legend reaching a whole new generation of fans (see photo above)!
While all the excitement of the premiere & cinema release of Future TX was going on, we were actually hard at work directing a new feature film! This was for Reel One, a company who make a lot of romantic comedies & TV movies. They hired us as producers/directors for a film they wanted to make in the Dorset area, where we're based.
Due to our knowledge of crew and locations in the area, we were able to be nimble enough (indeed, we had to be) to get the production up and running, and in the can, all within a 6 week period. We took the opportunity to hook up with White Lantern Films who took over the producer reigns to ensure a smooth and efficient production. We can't say much about the story yet, but it does star Georgia Hirst (from Vikings) and Sean Pogmore (Poldark). EXCITING!
Of course, as ever, we remain busy writing children's TV/animation, which we absolutely love. And the writing process teaches us so much about storytelling and visual grammar, which is directly transferable into directing live-action, so we're extremely grateful for the opportunity to wear both creative hats as required!
So, moving into the winter, we'll be busy with post-production on the Reel One film, writing various episodes of kids TV, and prepping our next family feature films. Bring on 2023!
