Feature films- ‘Final Empire’, ‘Clourophobia’, & ‘Dear May’

It’s been all go recently and everything has seemed to happen at once, snowballing into the amazing couple of months I’ve been having.

I landed the lead role of ‘Mychal’ in Fallen States’ feature film ‘Final Empire’, which is set for cinematic release in the US early 2015. Filmed in Tunisia, the film tells the story of ‘David and Goliath’ and is written and directed by Hollywood director, writer, producer Tim Chey. The cast includes ‘Jerry Sokoloski’, Canada’s tallest man at 7ft 6, taking on the role of Goliath. Movie posters and behind the scenes pictures will be posted over the build up to it’s release :)

Filming for feature length film ‘Clourophobia’ began this week, with an interesting lesson in playing Roller Derby with Derbys’ girls team ‘Haunted City Rollers’. After a couple hours finding our feet, we were taught basic shoves and trips, but I have to say it’s a hard game to play & the team make it look so easy! An experience Im not in a hurry to forget! :)

Finally, tomorrow I begin filming for Carl Lewis Films short ‘Dear May’. Keeping the story under wraps I can say that it’s being shot in Milton Keynes studios and will be quite an emotional one!

Loving the journey!

Three days- ‘Sigma’

And that’s a wrap on Makenna’s latest short film- ‘Sigma’ (previously called ‘Three days’), where she took on the role of Simone.

‘3 chapters, 3 stages of a relationship, 3 genres of film. Sigma is the tale of Christian and Simone, 2 strangers who meet unexpectedly in a cafe. From there, we follow them on a journey through their relationship as each new chapter is presented in a different style of film.’

Once ready, ‘Sigma’ will be sent to both UK and international film festivals. The film’s currently in post, so in the meantime, here’s some behind the scenes photos- more can be found on the Sigma facebook page by clicking HERE.

Makenna’s just completed filming for Silver Back’s short film ‘Lewis’, in which she played the lead role of Charlie. The shoot took place over several days in and around London. Without saying too much, the film included one very hectic houseparty which was shot using a crane & a wheelchair- Needless to say the film crew were very creative in the way they got the shots!

The film is currently in post production, but at the end of March will be put into the Odeon in Uxbridge for a one time showing, and then set for internet release- will be posted here as soon as possible!
