We make darkly comic and beautifully colourful original dramas that have been winning acclaim at International Film Festivals…
Diary of A Madman – We have very nearly finished putting this piece together. An incredible project made in collaboration with the artist and filmmaker Teo Ormond-Skeaping and his partner Lena Dobrowolska… we had an overwhelming response to the ‘Web Series’ when we put it out as episodes last year and are immensely proud of how it’s turned out. Screenings coming up in March in London (WORK Gallery, Kings Cross) and Exeter (Studio 74, Phoenix Arts Centre). Please keep your eye on our FB page for up-to-date info…
We have a number of projects in development that will bear all the hallmarks of our previous work – compelling stories in intriguing settings, expressionistic style, an ensemble cast of beautifully drawn characters, imaginative art direction and scrupulous attention to detail – all brought together with a highly distinctive and originally composed soundtrack.
