BY 'ECK! We've been delighted with the response to Ken Loach's Star Wars, our gritty northern sci-fi spoof. Directed by the splendid Nick Reed. 170,000 hits on YouTube and 730,000 on Facebook and counting.
And we're reet chuffed to say it WON FIRST PRIZE in the Jury Select category at the much-lauded Short Com 2016.
Watch, enjoy and may t'force be with thee.
Magnifique! We won a thing that meant our comic film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2016! Straight 8 is a competition designed for 8mm films to be shot unedited and our spoof 'Social Networking Socially - Society Through Technology' was one of the eight winners. We went out there with director Paul Murphy and it was tremendously tremendous. Hope you like. Zut alors!
Thrilled to say we won Best Screen Sketch 2015 at the fab London SketchFest with our 'Les Chuckle Brothers', directed by the formidable George Kane. Take a peek below. Magnifique!
The short film, 'Jeff and Caroline', starring us two won RUNNER UP in the COMIC SHORT FILM section of the Cofilmic Comedy Festival. It was also selected for the exclusive Encounters Film Festival and was screened at the BFI Future Film Festival 2015. Plaudits to the whole production team, especially that fab fella of a director, Plum Stupple-Harris
'Wipeout' another short film we made, directed by superbod Paul Murphy was awarded, WINNER of BEST SILENT FILM and THE AUDIENCE AWARD at the 2015 Walthamstow International Film Festival, WINNER of AUDIENCE AWARD FOR BEST FILM at the Saltburn Film Festival 2015 and received an HONOURABLE MENTION at the Aarhus Film Festival.
Well done to the whole team, including writer Daisy Martey. It's currently also shortlisted for several other awards.
