We spent last weekend in Leek in the Peak district in Staffordshire filming a promo for a feature film project we’re developing called The Winter Lake. The script is written by David Turpin (The Lodgers) and the director attached is the award winning short director and NFTS graduate, Phil Sheerin. It has been funded in development by the Irish Film Board and we’re hopeful that this support will continue as we move towards financing and hopefully production in late 2017.
The film is a gothic coming of age tale about a young boy who uncovers a dark secret in a turlough (seasonal lake) which sets in motion a series of unsettling events involving his mysterious neighbours. We worked with a great crew on the promo including director of photography Alistair Little (NFTS graduate).
We’ll keep you posted as the project progresses in development! Here are some photos from the shoot:
