SLATE 

Below are our current TV and feature film projects that are in development and pre-production.

DRAGHEIST - Feature Film - COMEDY

A comedy heist set in London's Soho and inspired by true events. 

Mark and Sarah find themselves losing a legal battle with a wealthy businessman Bobby Molotov-Jones, who has taken their company from them. So they set out to seek revenge. 

When a troupe of drag queens find out their beloved bar in Soho is closing at the hands of the very same businessman, they join forces to teach him a lesson.

Sarah is asked to organise a surprise birthday party for Bobby and hires the troupe as the entertainment. Disguised as a drag queen, Mark infiltrates the party and sets about stealing a very rare and extremely expensive set of Russian Dolls, as well as putting the brakes on Bobby's detrimental development plans in Soho.

 

 A classic British farce, Dragheist is as hilarious as it is heartwarming, touching on the injustices of business and the callous redevelopment of some of London’s most beloved neighbourhoods with little care to the histories and communities within them.

MR. PARKER - Feature Film - DRAMA

The film follows journalist and documentary film maker, Sam Holt, when he is brought back to the isolated northern town he grew up in to follow an historical sexual abuse case involving an old friend at his secondary school.

In the 90's Mr. Parker, a charismatic drama teacher, was having an affair with an underage pupil and twenty years later his victim Katie finally has the courage and strength to speak out.

Tom Parker had been a hero of Sam's growing up, offering shelter to him when his violent father lashed out and encouraging him to follow his dreams as a film maker. Sam, is reluctant to believe Katie especially when she goes to the press with her story, while others are quick to oust Tom Parker and his wife from the community.

Sam tries his best to find anything that might help his old teacher prove his innocence, including trawling through old VHS videos he'd recorded. The case collapses through lack of evidence but Tom Parker is left with his reputation in tatters, his marriage over and even Sam questioning whether Katie really had been telling the truth all along.

The film shifts between present day, to the VHS camera footage of the 90's and to the ever changing and unreliable memories of the kids involved, now in their 30's.
