HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We kickstart the new year by wrapping on two new short films. We were lucky to work with two amazing directors on ARENA and REUNION.
ARENA is a portrait of an understudy who develops a deadly obsession with getting her shot in the spotlight. It was written by Catherine Rees and directed by Helen Warner.
REUNION is a one-take short film from writer-director Stephen Fingleton. Starring Olwen Fouéré and John Travers, it's a tense drama at a funeral when a woman finally shows up to see her estranged son.
In other news, n00b has been sold to a Russian tv station, PARTING GIFT has been selected for the Roma Film Festa in March, and THE DEAL has been nominated in the Best 1-minute Short category at the international Play Short Awards!
