BTB Film – [Box] Fresh

[Box] Fresh is a parody of youth TV and is pretty much the first short film I ever made. A few friends and I (including Paul Wade and my then-girlfriend-now-wife)  got together in Canterbury and decided to shoot a few sketches that we’d been kicking around. This was the final result and I’m still pretty proud of it. It comes from that awkward time before I realised I needed to keep my own daft face behind the camera rather than in front of it but the blind freerunning skit is still a joke that I’m very pleased to have written.

The movie won us a Best Editor award and led to us going on to make loads of other things, so Box will always hold a special place in my heart.

Our Friends Made a Charity Christmas Single For Greggs…No Seriously

We’re big fans of Silvers here at the Bunker, they’ve helped us out on a couple of projects in the past and are a genuinely kickass band to boot. This year they’ve taken the next step as a band and recorded a Christmas single however unlike weedier, less pastry loving bands, they’ve recorded it in association with Greggs the Bakers. Greggs are doing a big charity drive for Help for Heroes this year and they recruited Silvers to provide the soundtrack to that push. Given all the elements involved (namely catchy music, good causes and pies) it’d be borderline criminal not to get behind this record.

You can buy the song by clicking HERE. It’s only 99p and every bit of that goes to Help for Heroes.

You should also check out the rest of Silvers’ stuff on their website.

Friday Film – [Box] Fresh Outtakes

Every Friday we descend into the vaults here at Bunker HQ and dig out one of the many fine (and occasionally not so fine) films that we have produced over the years. Come join us for another instalment of cinematic silliness.

Last week we gave you our teen culture parody, [Box] Fresh. Well, as with any film that’s made in a day and semi improvised, there were a fair number of gags that didn’t go into the final film (some because I’m an actor of questionable talent and some because Paul doesn’t know how to make fake blood that doesn’t look like melted chocolate). Here they are in all their glory.

Friday Film – [Box] Fresh

Every Friday we descend into the vaults here at Bunker HQ and dig out one of the many fine (and occasionally not so fine) films that we have produced over the years. Come join us for another instalment of cinematic silliness.

This week we have a film that brings back some fond memories for me as it’s the first proper short I ever did. It’s also the first film that I made for the 2 Days Laughter/Later festival, an event which has become a major fixture in my film making calender.

[Box] Fresh was a response to the endless stream of trendy, teen culture programming that was spilling onto our screens back in 08. It went on to be nominated for several awards and to win the Best Editor prize, as well as inspiring a wonderfully vitriolic letter and a minor local controversy after a few people misunderstood the blind freerunners joke. The following year we were billed as “Controversial film makers” which pleased me more than I care to admit.

Out takes next week!
