Preston’s local film professionals are set to host another ‘The Blackout Presents:’ evening to continue raising funds for its independent feature film, by showing Yann Demange’s critically acclaimed historical action thriller ’71’ on Thursday 11th June.
The event, which will be held at The Continental in Preston, will help the team to continue raising funds for its production, ‘The Blackout’, a story which explores the way society reacts when deprived of all electricity and its sources.
So far, the project is in the midst of casting calls and is fast approaching the filming stage, which is set to begin this summer. The team is also currently hosting an online auction, giving people the opportunity to have their name in the credits of its finished production. Bidders will also have the chance to own bespoke Jewellery from professional Goldsmith and Jeweller Janet Barber, a skilled jeweller who has produced products for several films, including the Oscar-winning production ‘Iron Lady’
Guests will also be given the chance to hear more information about The Blackout film project and how they can get involved in the film making process.
Alan Livesey, coordinating director of The Blackout, said: “We’re very excited to be hosting another ‘Blackout Presents:’ evening. The support we’ve received so far from the people of Preston is brilliant and we’d love this to continue. The evening is a great opportunity for people to find out more about what we’re aiming to do and how this will affect the whole of Lancashire.
“The team has been working hard to get to this stage in the process and, with filming just around the corner, we’ve very keen to get going. Anyone who attends this event really will be making a difference to the project and will also be in for a great night of entertainment!”
