Tonight is the first episode of a series of short films, showcasing the amazing talent of young writers and directors. ‘Coming Up’ features seven 25 min dramas. The first episode is ‘New Cross’ written by Laura Neal and directed by David Stoddart.
Next week’s short is a beautifully shot film, ‘Ben and Lump’. Written by Tom Wells and directed by MJ Delaney. ‘Its Christmas and Ben has returned home from his first term at university. Meanwhile best friend Lump can’t find a job and now his dad insists he join the army. The holiday season forces the friends to acknowledge the different directions their lives have taken.’
These shorts are a great opportunity for up and coming fresh talent to have the chance to create some professional work with some of the industry’s most talented crew.
David Marsh was the Director of Photography for next week’s film Ben and Lump also Camouflage and Postcode Lottery.
Michael Harrowes was the Editor.
