42 Management and Production launches

We are currently in development with the new identity for UK based movie and TV management and production company 42, which was launched this week by partners Rory Aitken, Ben Pugh, Josh Varney and Kate Buckley. 42 will represent a roster of actors, writers and directors which already include actors Michael Caine, John Hurt, Rhys Ifans, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Christopher Lee, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Drew, Jonny Lee Miller and Jonathan Rhys Meyers as well as writers and directors Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch), William Monahan, Peter Cattaneo and Daniel Wolfe.

With plans to also develop and produce film and television. Founders Rory and Ben set up the production company Between The Eyes back in 2005, which is to remain as a production label for certain titles under the 42 banner. Their latest project 'Welcome to the Punch' starring James McAvoy and Mark Strong, which we created the titles for releases in the UK and US March 2013.

Here below is the release poster for 'Welcome to the Punch':

We wish them all every success.


Dark Shadows Screening Tonight

Staking my seat before sun down tonight for the Cast and Crew Screening of Dark Shadows, at the Odeon Leicester Square, London. I'll be attending along with Philip Bulcock, who is one of the actors in the film. Dark Shadows opens everywhere this Friday. I look forward to chewing garlic popcorn with you all then.

We've kept you in the Dark but we are now creeping out of the Shadows, as the lid has been lifted and we can now officially announce that my collaboration with Tim Burton continues. My team and I have our teeth into creating the titles for Tim's other feature film this year Dark Shadows. The film is based on the hugely successful TV hit show which ran from 1966 to 1971 and stars Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, a 200 year old vampire. The film is due for release on May 11th this year and unlike the TV show, there'll be no 70's commercials!

Here's a bite sized offering for you to see:
