We have completed a short thriller, Crude, starring Rupert Frazer (Foyle’s War/The Bank Job) as the oil boss, Cengiz Dervis as an eco-terrorist, Kate Braithwaite as an environmental journalist, and Michelle Greenidge as the bereft Nigerian mother.
Directed by the talented Charles H Joslain, Crude has involved a cast and crew of over fifty people with a budget of nearly £16,000, raised by two crowd funding campaigns and some Big Lottery funding that funded a nature hide for the treehouse set.
Our exclusive screening at BAFTA on 25th June celebrated our hard work, we also screened at the Unicorn Daze Festival in August, and hopefully there will be many screenings as we enter the film into the international festival circuit.
FEATURE FILM PROJECTS:
RED RUG PRODUCTIONS is a UK based film production company, established in 2010 by Sina Bowyer, with the aim of producing international, independent theatrical feature films in the £1-5,000,000 budget range (international budgets given in US dollars).
At feature level, we are developing Juicy Loot, budgeted at $3,800,000, a crime romantic comedy set in New Mexico, which is a highly film incentivised state, including a 30% tax rebate, and stunning settings. After a successful scouting trip there, we have a talented executive team in place, key locations agreed, post-production facilities and a financing structure underway (see portfolio for more detail, also location photos on the Juicy Loot page). Several directors are keen to direct, and an announcement will be made as soon as we are greenlit. We have just launched an Enterprise Investment Scheme for our UK investors so if you are an interested investor, get in touch!
