The short fantasy epic ‘A Midwinter Nights Dream’, directed by Martin Gooch was given a private screening at BAFTA Saturday 25th May 2019 as part of the ‘Hole In The Road screening initiative to a packed house.

Executively produced in part by Viewtorch Pictures and co-produced with Gothic Manor and Eddy Out Productions, the film was made as part of the Directors UK and Arri UK Trinity challenge where select directors were charged to direct a short ‘one shot’, one take movie using the Arri  Trinity stabilization system.

Ambitious looking and breathtaking the film captures the true essence of how Viewtorch Pictures will engage audiences as well as highlighting the deeply creative mind of Martin Gooch, directing his fearlessly imaginative short film to open this small window into the magical world beyond the shadows.

Considering the fact that the whole film takes place in one shot or one take it goes to show that it is possible to bring a hugely different world to the screen outside of the normal confines of ‘one take’ filmmaking.

A Midwinter Nights Dream has been submitted for a number of festivals of the coming year and we will bring news of where it can be seen as soon as possible.

Paul Craig, company director of Viewtorch is currently in advance discussions to obtain the rights for the thriller script ‘Crosshairs’. The script which is written by Gary Young who wrote the 2009 hit ‘Harry Brown’ starring Michael Caine. Gary has also completed his directorial debut this year with another thriller ‘Two Graves’ starring David Johns, Cathy Tyson, and David Hayman.

In a recent statement, Paul Craig was quoted as saying that he is very excited about the prospect of bringing this punchy and gritty thriller to the big screen and looks forward to closely working with Gary.

More details to follow.
