DOORWAYS

SOLLYWOOD:

Synopsis:

During the Mid-Nineties, back when bouncers were  but low level gangsters and brawlers, the law was passed that a licence was needed for you to be a doorman.

 

Doorways explores Johnny's journey into manhood as the 'softy' new-comer becomes closer with down-and-out hard man, Craig. An exploration of outdated masculinity, with some laughs along the way and a dark unravelling of things unexpected. 

Theme/Vibe:

Psychological - Crime - Action - Comedy - Violence

90's - Gang culture - Grit - Masculinity

Project:

This is very much the baby of our friend and working partner, Edward Palmer. Instead of knuckling down to Ace his course studies, Edward decided to channel his efforts towards this ginormous passion project.By the time he left The University Of Westminster in 2016, aged 22, he had completed his first feature film. However, as luck would have it with most

independent films, Hippopotamus wasn't without its share of set backs. Sadly, around two thirds of the on set sound was lost during some anomalous file transfers, and the majority of the film had to be re-dubbed. This was a lengthy process, but We are tremendously proud to have any affiliation with Edward for having offered up our studio space as a means for him to complete his Debut Feature Film. It is now in the process of being distributed internationally, and his arduous efforts are soon to receive the long awaited pay off.
