Article & Festival News

2 Things to shout about!
First up is that our new short film ‘Karen’s Room’ is nearly done! We’re just working on the colour grading and then it’s complete. We’re happy to announce that the film will Premiere at the Red Carpet Screenings Film Festival on the 1st June 2013!
Secondly, the Basingstoke Gazette has run an article on us regarding the Cast & Crew screening of Addict held the other week. It’s a nice write up, and plenty of people get a mention which is really nice. Check it out here.

New project from Pork Chop Pictures


We are collaborating with Pork Chop Pictures on their next project, ‘SoulMatrix‘. The synopsis is being kept quiet for the moment, but the cast has been announced. The 2 lead roles have been picked up by the wonderful Lauren Shotton (who stars in our film ‘Karen’s Room’) and the brilliantly funny standup comedian Paul F Taylor (who starred in an early Pork Chop film called ‘Writers Block’).Shooting looks to commence towards the end of June. Will keep everyone posted.

Behind the Scenes of ‘The Fitzroy’ – Update 1


Day 4 of filming on the sub was a hectic day for all the team working on the flick. We all met up at the Pier at 7.50am, with everyone boarding the sub by 8am. I was there trying to capture the work of all those involved, but when you are crammed in like sardines into a small submarine where space is a premium… it was a really hard job! But saying that, spirits were high and everyone was really enjoying themselves. The level of professionalism from all involved was superb, and their dedication and attention to detail will be testament to the final product.
The day went by so fast, that when the wrap call for the day was given i was really surprised to see my watch telling me it was 8pm!
I loved every minute of trying to capture the efforts of all involved, as well as being surrounded by such wonderful people.


Behind the Scenes of The Fitzroy

On Friday we head on over to the set of ‘The Fitzroy’, being shot in Kent. The set comprises of an old disused submarine as seen in the pic above. We’re there to shoot the Behind the Scenes documentary on the making of this film. Looking forward to it!

Addict is here!

After nearly 2 years in the making, I’m REALLY happy to announce that our first feature film ‘Addict’ is done! This film is ready to set sail and start it’s journey!
I need to say a massive thank you to so many people, but right now, the person that needs a HUGE thank you is James Bell. He is the man behind the audio mix, that has just catapulted this film into a whole new level! He has spent many months of very hard work, getting all the audio right and all at his own personal expense. I’m just gobsmacked at how great this film sounds! So James… THANK YOU!

Competition Time

We’re looking for someone to come up with a Logo for us. We’ve never really had one, and it’s about time that we had a logo to represent Fraught Productions at the start of each film we produce. We also fancy getting some t-shirts made up and the odd commemorative mug or something! 🙂

For inspiration… think ‘order out of chaos’.

So get your thinking caps on and submit your entry via the Contact Us page on the site.

Look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Closing Date : 10th May 2013.

Coming Together!
