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.

Arley movie-maker calls for backing
by RYAN MERRIMAN
FILM fans are being invited to help out a local movie-maker with funding for his feature debut.

Stefan Smith from New Arley is set to make his film debut with the psychological thriller ‘UnWelcome’.

The former Alderman Smith School and North Warwickshire and Hinckley College student is now appealing for people to come forward and help with backing.

So far ’UnWelcome’ has been funded by a unique package of grassroots supports, with local film fans buying a stake of up to £500.

A taxi driver, a teacher and a publican are just three of the local people who have joined in with the project.

“This takes movie-making out of the hands of Hollywood fat cats and gives it back to the community,” said the 34-year-old director, who is already an industry veteran with experience on feature films, award winning short films and music videos.

“This is the future for film making and will create long term sustainable growth for our backers and supporters.”
