Great cast in the making…!

Just back from a tremendous day of casting courtesy of our great Casting Director Sue Needleman. We saw over forty boys all keen to play Luke in ‘Strings’ and the quality was exceptional. Now comes the difficult task of narrowing them down to the shortlist! A big thank you is due to The Green Room Studios who accommodated us for our casting session. They have some of the best facilities around.

Location hunt is underway!

We’ve already started the fascinating (though somewhat dubious) task of finding a toilet for one of the scenes. Our search has taken us far and wide to many of London’s boroughs. And we think we’ve hit the jackpot with this one! Check out the pictures from our recce. It’s like stepping back in time!

Save the date!

Quick note to let you know to save the date for our launch party/fundraiser. It’ll be on Thursday 27 March in East London. More news to follow. Limited tickets will be available so don’t miss out!

Film London say yes!

GREAT news everyone! We’ve just heard that Strings has been confirmed as one of the shorts being backed by this year’s Film London Borough Film Fund. It’s great news for us and we’re really looking forward to having their support going forward!

Shortlisted for funding!

Great news! Strings has been short-listed for funding by Film London’s ‘Borough Film Funds’ scheme which backs a selection of the best shorts being made in the capital. It’s supported by the National Lottery and the BFI so it’s a great scheme to be part of. We hope to hear whether we’ve been successful early next month. Fingers crossed!
