Two graduates from Wiltshire College & University Centre’s BA (Hons) Film Production & Cinematography programme have secured big screen showings for their first feature film.
Will Stone and Adam Pickford’s film called ‘The Fence’ has been running at Showcase cinemas in Bristol since the start of the month.
The film is now due to be shown at Showcase’s Southampton cinema this Friday. If it gets a good audience, Showcase will continue to show the film at the site as well as six other locations across the country.
Will and Adam graduated from the BA (Hons) Film Production and Cinematography course in 2017. The course is delivered at the College’s Salisbury campus and accredited by Bournemouth University.
The duo began working together on short films while studying at Salisbury, winning several prestigious awards including a Royal Television Award for the best drama in the south of England.
Since graduating with first-class degrees, Will and Adam have continued working together and have produced a series of short films and pilots as well as freelancing in the film industry.
While Will directs and Adam serves as cinematographer, their complimentary skill sets make them an effective team as they script, produce and complete post-production on each project.
This summer they shot ‘The Fence’ – their first feature film – with a full professional crew over a period of six weeks in and around Bristol, the culmination of more than a year developing the script and raising sufficient finance.
The story is a development of Will’s graduation film that has had 4.3 million hits on YouTube. Set in the early 1980s on what were then some notorious council estates, it focuses on the adventures of two brothers as they attempt to track down their stolen motorbike.
