Financing is well under way for Dark Hour Pictures second movie ‘The Bavarian’

Final tweaks are being made to the script by ‘Unwelcome’ writers Smith and Barfoot. ‘The Bavarian’ is an Action/Horror film set in the Tora Bora, Afghanistan and follows the first deployment of Private Jinx Harris.

The team are being very tight lipped at the moment but when pressed, Writer/Director Stefan Smith told us the following.

‘It’s a much larger movie than Unwelcome was; it features battles in World War One, World War Two and modern day Afghanistan. It features one of the coolest bad guys/monsters for years. It’s going to be epic’.

Casting should begin in the next few weeks and we’ll keep you posted as and when we find out more details.

The search is on for a replacement film composer

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.

There’s 500 quid in your pocket you never knew you had…

by admin on Jul.21, 2009, under Dark Hour Pictures, unWelcome

According to research reported in today’s Scotsman, the average British family is £12 a week better off when compared to June last year.

£12 per week adds up to £624. Which isn’t going to pay for a new BMW, a place in the sun, or a new kitchen.

But it would comfortably cover a £500 stake in UnWelcome, under the innovative funding package being offered by Dark Hour Pictures, and still leave enough for two Lucky Dips on the lottery each week and a 20 quid trifacta on the dogs.

Tempted? Check out the funding pages for more information.

The grandiose glass building of Harbour Lights art house cinema, on the sea front in Southampton, this weekend hosted the premiere screening of Giallo Films latest feature film ‘A Day of Violence’. Cast and Crew where joined by other industry professionals to ensure a packed house for the screening. Dark Hour Pictures’s Stefan Smith was the Assistant Director on the classy British gangster film written and directed by Darren Ward.

Influenced by British & Italian violent crime thrillers of the 70s, and with parallels to ‘The Long Good Friday’, and Lucio Fulci’s ‘The Smuggler’ (Luca il Contrabbandiere) it weaves a dark tale of violence, life and death in the underworld.

Featuring infamous Italian horror icon & star of some of the most notorious Italian horror classics ever unleashed (House on the Edge of the Park, Cannibal Apocalypse & Cannibal Ferox) – John Morghen (Giovanni Lombardo Radice)
