Trailer: BLUE arrives on digital today



Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. A powerful feature documentary Blue, from renowned film-maker Karina Holden (Magical Land Of Oz), takes us on a provocative journey into the ocean realm, to witness a critical moment in time…when the marine world is on a precipice. Following its theatrical run the film is now set for its UK digital release on 29 April 2019 with the DVD release to follow on 1 July 2019 from Sparky Pictures.

Blue presents a fascinating and important story that needs to be told. We journey across the seas and into the world of passionate advocates for ocean preservation, where the story of our changing oceans is unfolding.

Our inspirational guides, Lucas Handley, Madison Stewart, Philip Mango, Dr Jennifer Lavers, Tim Silverwood, Mark Dia and Valerie Taylor, have one common aim, to be guardians of the ocean and inspire others to join their work to protect the world we live in. They are defending habitats, campaigning for smarter fishing, combating marine pollution and fighting for the protection of keystone species.

The industrialisation that has occurred in the oceans over the last century mirrors the events that triggered mass extinctions on land. Industrial scale fishing, habitat destruction, species loss and pollution have placed the ocean in peril. The very nature of the sea is being irretrievably altered. The ocean can no longer be thought of as a place of limitless resources, a dumping ground, immune to change or decline, we have learnt a lot on about how the ocean operates, but need to act on that knowledge before it’s too late.

Blue comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come and shows us there is a way forward and the time to act is now.

Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, releasing this Friday


Rupert is a struggling actor, Rupert is struggling to find love, and Rupert is struggling to know who he is in bittersweet British drama Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, which is set for its world premiere this spring with a limited theatrical and digital release thanks to Substantial Films.

Respected Scottish actor Sandy Batchelor (Othello and The Captain of Kopenick – National Theatre) takes the lead in a jawdropping turn as a budding actor trying to navigate life with dissociative identity disorder (aka multiple personality disorder) that will have you laughing, crying, and hiding behind a cushion.

This rollercoaster ride follows budding actor Rupert Lindsay (Sandy Batchelor) who is desperate to get his big break in acting, but there’s one slight problem: he keeps having angry and lascivious outbursts and he can never remember what he did, what he said or even who he hurt. A chance audition puts him in front of failed film director Geoffrey Morton (Ben Porter – Casualty, The Bill), whose last hope in the industry rests on finding a star who can effectively portray the lead in ‘The Fatal Blasphemy of Jeremiah Ulysses’s Boundless Rage.’

Rupert’s angry outbursts have never looked so good, but his psychotherapist Angus (Adam Astill – Unforgotten, Eastenders) wouldn’t agree. Trying to keep his disorder in check, Angus is concerned about how Rupert will cope with the pressure of having the success of the play resting on him losing control.

Romance is in the air when Rupert falls for make-up artist Stevie (Daisy Keeping – Holby City, Humans), but which Rupert is she in love with? Rupert is confronted with a choice between his career, his love life, and his mental health…luckily there’s three of him to deal with it.

The film is written and directed by British father and son duo Mick and Tom Sands (Backtrack, The Holly Kane Experiment, False Witness). Lead actor Sandy Batchelor and director Tom Sands have just commenced another collaboration on an exciting new film, All Out based on Neil Drysdale’s book Dad’s Army - How Freuchie Took Cricket by Storm. It tells the unbelievable but true story of a cricket team from a small village in Scotland that triumphed at Lord’s in the National Village Cup in 1985.

The Rupert team worked closely with a veteran psychotherapist, who consulted on the script and advised the cast to ensure an accurate portrayal of the disorder. This bold exploration of living with mental illness is perfect for indie lovers, theatre lovers and everyone in between.

Rupert, Rupert & Rupert arrives in cinemas 26 April 2019 and on digital Amazon Video, iTunes and GooglePlay.

Interview with Eduardo Castrillo


The idea for Worth, now available on Amazon Prime, came to writer, actor, producer and director Eduardo Castrillo via experiences he and (MMA fighter) Jose Palacios had on the circuit.

Where did the idea for the story come from, sir? 
The idea from the story came from a lot from personal experiences from me and also my friend Jose Palacios, who is a professional muay thai fighter. I used to ask him all kinds of questions to try and understand the life of a fighter, especially in muay thai. It’s completely different than boxing and MMA, so it was a fun world to write about and hopefully introduce to a new audience.   

How much of the film was in the script and how much of it simply came together on the set?
I would say about seventy five percent of what’s on screen is the script and the rest came out of natural energy between the actors. The biggest change was the ending. My character was only supposed to fight one opponent in the film but when the original fighter didn’t show up to our second film day, we had to find a replacement actor which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. He did an amazing job and I was able to use footage from both shoots to add more action into the film.

Where do you think your strengths lie as a writer? 
I tend to gear myself more towards humor even when i’m not trying to. I’ll forget about a line or a quip that I had found funny when originally writing and be surprised when the audience laughs at it. If you can keep the audience chuckling every once in a while, you’ll keep them in engaged.


Did you always intend to direct the movie or was there a stage you considered pitching the script to studios?
I always intended to keep this movie in house. The previous film I worked on, I had signed away the rights to a producer, because he brought a budget and some names to it but in the end it wasn't the right thing to do. With Worth I knew it would be very personal so I had to do it my way and with my team. Even in distributing the film, I decided to self distribute it and retain my rights to the project. Succeed or fail, it still belongs to us.

How difficult a film was it to make? Can you talk about some of the challenges?
Because the film was self funded, we had to shoot not as frequent as I would like. I would work for a few months and save, and then we would shoot for a weekend. It took about a year to get all the footage we needed to tell the story. And I was playing a fighter so during that time I had to continuously train and diet and that was a challenge in itself.

Did most of the cast know martial arts?
Yeah there was actually a few fighters in the movie, like Jose Palacios and Mauricio Alonso. Even my opponent, Manny Perez, was a fighter. It was important to have them in there and have their voice as I shot the film.

Where can we find the movie?
You can find Worth on platforms such as Tubi.tv, Comcast Xfinity,Vudu, Itunes, and Amazon Prime Video. Dvds and Blu Ray also available on Amazon as well.

Interview with Roland Manookian


Ahead of the theatrical & VOD release of British gangster movie ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON on April 19, actor Roland Manookian reflects on the challenge of playing a young Frankie Frazer, the joy of working with Nick Cave and the tragedy of knife crime.


Q: Roland, you play ‘Mad’ Frankie Fraser in ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON. Tell us how you got cast and how you approached the role?

Just like any other film really, I was asked to read the script and consider the role of “Frankie”. I jumped at it, as the script was really good. It’s a great part and I thought I could do something with the character. Frankie was at the vanguard of a new wave of criminal that was emerging just after the Second World War. Prior to his arrival on the scene killing someone was a capital punishment and meant the death penalty. But Frankie came along, didn’t care because he was essentially a sociopathic murderer, and became the most feared member of Billy Hill’s gang.


Q: How much research did you do?

Because Frankie was such a high-profile real character I did little research into his private life mainly because I didn’t want to offend his family in any way. I did some digging into post WW1 literature and looked at archived newspapers of the time, as the film is a period piece. I was also keen to look into what was happening socially and politically at the time, where did these men and characters fit into society and what could have led them to lead the lives they did? It was economically a tough time for most. Fascinating. My knowledge of him is just the pre-requisite for any true blue South Londoner”.


Q: Frankie Fraser was such a high profile character, with so much mythology swirling around what he did. Was that an additional pressure?

I didn’t feel any pressure taking on the role of “Frankie” - quite the opposite actually, I was honoured. What was really interesting for me was the Frankie depicted in the film was a young Frankie, an unknown Frankie. It was a chance to tell a side of his story certainly unfamiliar to me and to the high profile character we know from all the films and media.


Q: You’re well known for playing violent men - Zeberdee in the 2004 hit The Football Factory, and Craig Rolfe in the hugely successful Rise of the Footsoldier franchise. Does it come easy?

I wouldn't say it’s always easy, but always so much fun. It can be quite physical and intense. But at the end of the day its acting and everyone usually walks away unscathed and laughing. If it’s done well, all the choreography and staging and doing it over and over is totally worth it.


Q: Your break-through role was as the street-wise gang member Justin in Nick Love’s Goodbye Charlie Bright, alongside Paul Nicholls and Danny Dyer. What experiences stand-out?

Where do I begin? I was very privileged to be part of that film. I hold Nick Love in the highest respect, such a beautiful man and colossal director. I have the fondest memories and probably one of the highlights was getting my older brothers Quadrophenia CD’s and books signed by Phil Daniels himself, just amazing.


Q: What was your upbringing like? Were you a gang member?

I had a relatively conventional working class upbringing In South London I guess. I played a lot of football and hung out around the flats. And no, I was never part of or a member of any gang, unless you can call the Scouts a gang.


Q: How did you get into acting?

I’d done some acting at school, but it was only when I finished school and college and decided to go and study performing arts, that I really started to understand what professional acting was about. Very luckily, I got the part when the BBC were casting a project called Storm Damage. From there again, very luckily, I joined a prestigious acting agency and my career began. If I had any advice to give to anyone who was thinking about becoming an actor, I would strongly suggest to go and study acting first, as this will only serve you well in your career.


Q: Do you think, given the current knife-crime epidemic in the UK, there is a danger of films like ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON glamourising gang-crime culture?

I think the current situation with knife crime in this country is tragic, I feel so much for the victims and their families and what they are having to go through. Very little we can say can console anyone grieving the loss of their loved ones. What we can do to safeguard anyone from these events should and always should be done.


Q: What is in the pipeline?

Well I’m about to finish the final segment of a film that’s part of the Foot Solider franchise, filming out in Amsterdam. We've also filmed in Marbella, which was fantastic, and hopefully that will be out later this year - maybe early next year. I’m really looking forward to the release of Once Upon A Time In London and what the new year has to bring.


Q: Finally, what’s your favourite gangster film?

You saved the toughest question until last! Okay, without including The Godfather which could be considered one of the greatest films of all time on its own, my top three best English gangster films:

1. This is England
2. The Long Good Friday
3. Sexy Beast

My top three American gangster films:

1. Reservoir Dogs
2. Menace To Society
3. Carlito’s Way



ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON is In selected cinemas and available on Digital HD from 19th April 2019
