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’).
‘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.
