Dawn Rescue at the Portobello Film Festival

(above: Christopher Brandon and Cameron Slater in Dawn Rescue)

Delighted to find out today that my debut short film Dawn Rescue (see my Film page) has been selected for the Portobello Film Festival. It will be shown as part of the Independent Showcase on the 11th of September in the Pop Up Cinema on Acklam Rd. Details here; http://www.portobellofilmfestival.com/2012/sept11_pop.html

This is my first film so I’m really chuffed its made it into a film festival.

The film takes the form of a promotional video by an organisation named Dawn Rescue, with Dan and Matthew recounting how they first met in a gay bar in Soho 11 years ago. But these two men aren’t quite what they might at first seem. There’s a Dawn Rescue diary on this website, to accompany the film, which deepens the story.

Oh, and admission to the Portobello Film Festival is FREE so why not pop along?
