CHE GRANT

WRITER / DIRECTOR

 

Che was born in England to South African parents, which gave him a distinctly international outlook from a young age. Che basically lives and breathes films. From obscure B-movies from the 70’s to arthouse indies from last year, he has an encyclopaedia of films he has watched to draw from. Che started working within the film industry at the age of 10 as an actor and moved into directing in 2013 when he graduated from the Met Film School.

 

He directed the short documentary Vag-Tagging on the Southbank (2012) which was exhibited at the Tate Modern. He also directed the award-winning short film One Night Only (2014) which was screened at over 220 film festivals worldwide.

MICHAEL BOCCALINI

WRITER / DIRECTOR

 

Michael is Italian/Swedish, raised in France and Italy. Inspired by Scandinavian anxiety and obsessed with south Italian comedy, Michael moved to London in 2011 to study directing at the Met Film School. He started his career by writing two shorts, 'Etiquette' and 'One Night Only', directed by Lauren Torres and Che Grant in 2013. Combined these films have received numerous awards for both best writing and best film.

 

In 2014 Michael wrote 'It Could Have Been Worse', a dark comedy feature, that will be directed by the BAFTA winning director Jonas Grimås. The film is currently in pre-production in Sweden.

 

Since then, Michael has been focused on his debut feature 'Love Possibly', with co-director Che Grant, a mockumentary-dramedy to be finished early 2018. While the films do their festival circuit, Michael exercises his funny bone by releasing sketches on a channel called 'Bingo Schnauzer' on YouTube every fortnight.

KEW LIN

WRITER / DIRECTOR

 

I am a screenwriter by passion and necessity, and a film director by self-defence. I’d combat the writer's block with an overnighter's clock.

 

Having our own films out there and seen is a wondrous reason to keep on keeping on.

 

In my previous life I was a visual effects artist, involved notably in Interstellar, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bridge of Spies and The Hunger Games film series.
