PIMM Productions is a film production company based in the North East of England. Films already completed include the award-winning period drama ‘An Unfortunate Woman’ (directed by Sean Cronin) which was shot at Beamish Museum, and the concept trailer for ‘Give Them Wings’ (directed by Dan Perry).
Our focus for 2018 is to win further awards with our full-length feature ‘Give Them Wings’ which is set to be directed by Sean Cronin. Actors already attached to this project include 80s pop idol Toyah Willcox (‘Jubilee’), Bill Fellows (‘Lady Macbeth’), Mark Stobbart (‘Harrigan’) and James Baxter (‘Still Open All Hours’).
As a company we are committed to achieving cinematic excellence by utilising our network of local talent. Our aim is to provide as much value as possible, without compromising on quality. To that end we have drawn up a very competitive budget for ‘Give Them Wings’ which makes it an attractive proposition for potential investors. We have recently achieved accreditation under the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), which ensures that investors in our film will receive tax relief of 30% on their investments.
‘Give Them Wings’ is unashamedly a film with a feel-good factor. The overwhelming success of ‘Billy Elliott’ has demonstrated that people want to see high quality films made in the North East of England telling gritty stories of real working-class people.
Principal photography will take place in 2018 using a Red camera, and locations will strive to establish the film’s 1990s feel. The historic market town of Darlington, which still retains a number of iconic buildings, will feature prominently, together with Crook, Northallerton and York.
The rugged and beautiful coastline of Redcar and Saltburn-by-the Sea will provide the backdrop for the film’s finale, a sequence that will be shot with a drone to give it a majestic cinematic sweep.
