Echo Screen

A probational experiment forces its newest chosen convict to confront the horror of her crime in order to win her freedom.

Director Dan Tonkin

After You

After You

When a man holds a door open for a woman, that’s just being polite. But when he insists she goes first, maybe that’s different…

Director James Hughes

The Stomach

The Stomach

Frank’s had enough. A spirit medium whose unique and grotesque method of channeling the dead is putting his own life at risk, he wants out. But others, in this world and the next, have plans of their own. Part body horror, part crime thriller, part ghost story, The Stomach is a unique tale of Supernatural Noir.

Director Ben Steiner

Pastry

If I Can Dream

A peculiar journey following the artist Dmitri Galitzine as he chases his dream of being the best Elvis Tribute Artist in Europe.

Director Mattia Reiniger

Pastry

Pastry

Pastry is a short film about a ‘sweet’ seduction. It is a light-hearted but meaningful look at how women perceive their body weight or shape in relation to others. Our fairy-tale starts when Caroline, a business woman in her early thirties, allows her desire for a doughnut to win over her months of dieting. But the first doughnut leads to a doomed diet, and so much more.

Director Eduardo Barreto

Leaving Home

Leaving Home

Residents of a retirement home take over the warden’s office to protest their eviction. Dark secrets are revealed in this emotional story.

Blur the line – between workshop and production

Blur the Line is an acting and filmmaking workshop that punches way beyond its weight until lines between this and a real production are blurred. We help to gather talented people together in a friendly, experimental environment to learn from each other and to produce hopefully great quality film scenes.We use a plethora of some of the best cinematic equipment and try to film at locations that suit and raise production values. Then once filming is over, the clips are edited, sound designed and graded. It’s a thrill when you get to see it back. It’s then available for your showreel or for educational purposes etc. Plus credits are available. Email Non-Multiplex Cinema's workshop email addressThe workshops are free. There is a suggested donation of £5 to attend if you are an actor or director. All proceeds go to Alzheimer’s Society. Free for crew.

Wednesday 23rd November, we had the privilege to use a green screen studio in North London for one of the most fun sessions of Blur the Line ever. The task was deceptively simple; to recreate the lighting from a scene that was shot outside on another day, in the studio.

And we had a big gun!

So a lot of the time was spent staring at frames shot previously and figuring out what lighting, flags, and reflectors could be used.

Did I say we had a big gun!

The make-up artist helped to eliminate glare and even added tracking points as there is a requirement to do a bit of face replacement as well. Plenty learnt that day!
