About

We are a team of filmmakers who have been involved in various projects across film and TV. Our debut feature film Tear Me Apart world premiered in the U.S. at the Austin Film Festival in October 2015 and was released in 2016. Our second feature Gun is currently in development, intending to shoot Autumn 2017. Our aim is to make intelligent genre films with mass appeal, following in the footsteps of the likes of Darren Aronofsky and Christopher Nolan. We are keen to meet writers, directors and producers who share our vision.
