REPEAT is a new science fiction thriller being filmed in Burton-Upon-Trent later this year by directing partnership Richard Miller & Grant Archer. Archer was recently awarded the best cinematography at the Midlands Movies awards. Their aim is to prove a Hollywood level feature film can be produced with a tiny crew, a small budget & a lot of ambition. The project is currently 100% self-funded with a crowdfund set up to help bring the movie to the screen. You can find out what awesome rewards the team are offering by clicking here.
