Midlands Spotlight - Gatling Gun Productions
By midlandsmovies, Jan 4 2015 02:28PM
Midlands Movies Mike finds out about non-profit film group Gatling Gun Productions based in Leicestershire and how they intend to shoot away the competition with their new film projects in the region.
Producing short and feature length film productions, Gatling Gun Productions are very much a Midlands venture where they not only make fictional stories but also produce music videos, documentaries, educational videos and comedy sketches in the area.
In addition, Gatling Gun say they want to “promote this region of Britain for its rich culture and countryside” and go on to explain that uniquely all of their cast and crew are in fact volunteers.
They hope these volunteers share the company's commitment to improve themselves personally and have a positive impact on the local community and their ethos is to also give others opportunities to experience and practice different aspects of movie-making.
As well as actors and actresses, the company are always on the lookout for cameramen & women, still photographers, editors, make-up artists, costume designers, runners, directors and musicians and ask interested people to contact them by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Gatling Gun do not ask for previous experience which is a refreshing change and allows those to enter an ever-growing but competitive industry. They also promote their production team as a conduit for individuals to learn the many different roles in film-making and to try out these roles first-hand.
Last year was a great success for the company as Gatling Gun officially opened on Friday 26th September 2014 and had regional alumni Stephen Graham (This Is England, Public Enemies, Pirates of the Caribbean amongst others) and his wife Hannah Walters in attendance who cut the ribbon at their current location at the Palace Theatre in Ibstock.
Gatling Gun also continue to run fortnightly meetings and rendezvous for filming outside the Palace. For more information about the next meetings are on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GatlingGunProductions
With plenty of new projects happening in 2015, their latest venture can be seen in a trailer advertising Gatling Gun Productions' upcoming series: Hunted. The first episode named “Outbreak” will be released in early 2015 and the trailer can be seen on YouTube here:
