A Message From Founder Hendrik Harms
We’re multi award-winning film studio. Our first short film was made on a micro-budget and was a finalist for “Best Film” at a BAFTA accredited festival. Currently, we have a Stephen King short doing the festival circuit and it has just won a Remi Award from WorldFest-Houston International Film & Video Festival Festival, among many others.
Over lockdown, we created a series of Isolation Shorts to raise money for NHS Charities Together. For the final film of this series, “The Existential Hotline”, we brought on board Ella-Rae Smith (The Stranger, Into The Badlands), Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey, Bad Education) and Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones, Misfits), as they were excited about the script and cause.
Also through lockdown, I wrote two features and currently have several more in the pipeline, with one being considered by the BFI for a development fund.
We are working with the Arts Council and National Lottery to run teaching shoots for short films (as part of a CIC – Community Interest Company) that will mentor groups, who may not have had the opportunities to make a career film, to come on board and shadow a crew member to earn a dual credit with them and hopefully kickstart their careers in the industry. This is part of a long term business plan to continually inspire marginalised groups into the creative industries. Their first two shorts will be targeting women 16-18 and then 25+.
Finally, we have launched the Worcester Film Festival and made it a city-wide event to boost local businesses, bring international talent to our city and create retention in educational institutions. We have received an overwhelming amount of support from governing bodies and prominent actors alike, which should make it a fantastic event.
