15/11/2011 - ODDEST BAR'S SHORT FILM SOUFFLÉ SPECIAL - The Chariot
The Chariot played along side a selection of other short films at the funky Oddest Bar in Chorlton, Manchester. With large parts of the film being based around, and also shot in Chorlton, we decided to have a local screening and invite a few familiar faces. Oddest was packed out, a big thanks to everyone who came along and supported the film.
29/8/2011 - ROTORELIEFS LONDON
The Chariot screens at The Rich Mix cinema in Shoreditch as part of Rotoreliefs London. After maybe drinking a bit too much booze, film makers Nick Gillespie and Billy J Jackson did a short Q&A about the film and talked about how/why it got made. Rotoreliefs is a good night out and great networking platform for independent film makers. You can check it out here and also see more details of the screening…
