What a huge pleasure to be asked by Sam and Ben Callis (Breakneck Films) to get involved in designing the titles for their new short film Viking.
Teaming up again with editor Ian Cunningham (Vampire Academy) to collaborate on the titles was, as always, great fun. And we are all really pleased with the end results.
Starring Sophie Thompson (EastEnders), Andrew Lancel (Casualty) and Joseph May (Resident Evil), and produced by Ben, Louise Gray-Murray (Fauna Sauna) and Jo Lewis (Whisper). Viking confronts the cause of Cathy’s (Sophie) disastrous life, which held together with weak aphorisms and cheap mysticisms has left her stumbling through the last twenty five years, estranged and vainly searching for herself. Finally returning home brave enough to tackle her brutal but ailing father, she’s too late and he’s already dead. Denied closure she determines that he must still pay for his brutality and, commits to a darkly comic revenge.
Sam and Ben’s first time collaboration on their debut film
Although they have followed very different career paths; Ben Callis an award winning Creative Director in advertising; Sam Callis a highly successful actor on stage and screen, their different backgrounds have brought something very special and unique to their film.
They say that this experience of working together has made them realize that they share a common vision when making film, but that their different perspectives make it exciting and always adds a twist to the creative process.
Having already had such positive feedback with Viking they are now developing several new film scripts.
Excited for the film getting a well deserved release, we look forward to sharing our work very soon.
