by PressOffice on Aug.02, 2010, under Dark Hour Pictures, Stefan Smith, unWelcome

The post production of ‘Unwelcome’ suffered a major blow this evening when we were informed that the services of Dave Andrews as film composer may no longer be available. Dave has got a full work load for the upcoming months and due to the delays to the edit of Unwelcome, working together may no longer be possible.

Director Stefan Smith has said that he is absolutely gutted by the turn of events but understands that the delay has been on the part of Dark Hour and looks forward to working with Dave on up coming projects.

The Search is now on for a last minute replacement to take the movie on to the next stage. Dark Hour Pictures wishes to thank Dave for all of his time and input up to this stage and can’t wait to work with him again in the future.
