We are thrilled to announce that Sean Connolly has also been cast in our forthcoming proof-of-concept teaser for Augmental.
Sean is best known for his voice work on the Acadamy Award nominated Aardman Animations’ Shaun the Sheep Movie.
BFilm Micro are delighted to announce that the immensely talented musician and artist Erica Nockalls is cast as the lead actor, Tyke, in our forthcoming proof-of-concept teaser film for Augmental, the feature film.
Following her audition, Andy Conway, screenwriter for the film, said: “It was a real pleasure to read scenes from Augmental with Erica and see the words on the page come alive.”
Following our call for scripts, we are pleased to announce that eight Birmingham-based screenwriters have been selected to work further with us on the Augmental feature film project. Congratulations to:
We received 21 entries to the project and said we would select 7 scripts to work with. The standard has been so good that we have selected 8 writers! We really loved how each of these writers responded to the brief and we are very much looking forward to working with them.
Over the next two months the writers will be working with lead screenwriter Andy Conway on the Augmental feature film script.
We know it’s going to be exciting, and that this is the first step in what we hope is a much longer relationship over the next decade.
BFilm Micro invites screenwriters based in the West Midlands to submit short film scripts that can form part of an anthology feature film (also known as a portmanteau, omnibus or package film).
Augmental will be an action tech thriller about a female cycle courier involved in a breathtaking life-or-death cat-and-mouse chase, picking up hidden films virtually embedded via augmented reality at locations around the city of Birmingham. Seven found-footage short films will form the basis of a series of clues that lead her to a terrifying climax.
