Following an almost ten months in the making, the Blackout filming has had the final wrap and after the post production editing process, it will be premiered in Preston’s Guild Hall on 12 November 2015. The Guild Hall owners have kindly wavered the fee for using the Grand Hall for the film screening through their arts and culture trust fund, which was set up last year by the owners.Advertisement
Coordinating director of The Blackout Film Project, Alan Livesey, said “The film wouldn’t have happened without the support of enthusiastic film-lovers in the Lancashire area. So many people and institutions offered resources and time to make The Blackout bigger and better than I could’ve imagined it could be. It really proves to me that independent film is possible even in the tightest parameters, if you share the idea with those around you and just let the word spread!
“We are also very grateful indeed to the owners of the Guild Hall for allowing us to use this very prestigious venue in Preston as it affords the screening of the film to be of a high profile nature, which I sincerely hope it deserves. With the tremendous backing of Blog Preston and the dedication and hard work of the whole crew, the production is coming together brilliantly, making this whole project a successful team effort. I am absolutely excited in knowing that it is only a few weeks to the screening of the film’s premiere”.
For those who are not familiar with The Blackout Film Project, Alan Livesey explains what the film is all about in the video teaser below.
Tickets to the premiere screening will be available very soon via the Skiddle website. What is more, they are completely free to all and an announcement will be made in the very near future on here and on many social media websites of ticket details and availability.
This will be a very unique film as it will essentially be the first full feature drama film made in Preston by Preston people. Blog Preston are very proud to be official sponsors of this fabulous project and very much looking forward to the expected success of the premiere.
