Brilliant four-star REVIEW from The Times for director duo Luke Seomore & Joseph Bull’s debut feature BLOOD CELLS…

“BLOOD CELLS is a ridiculously accomplished film from the home grown debut directors Joseph Bull and Luke Seomore… Gorgeously told, with teasing flashbacks and eerie slow-mo, it signals the arrival of future film-making heavyweights.”

Shot by DOP DAVID PROCTER, the film stars Barry Ward and Chloe Pirrie.

Great REVIEW from The Hollywood Reporter for director Jake Gavin’s feature debut, HECTOR, which received its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 18 June 2015.

The Hollywood Reporter: “Gavin’s achievement here is to craft a drama which conveys the hard-knock realities of homelessness while maintaining a gentle, wry and sometimes humorous tone — a tricky balancing-act which even experienced film-makers can find problematic.”

BYRON BROADBENT was the Production Designer on HECTOR, which stars Peter Mullan.

The film is nominated in the Michael Powell Award for BEST BRITISH FEATURE 2015.

Congratulations to ANGUS HUDSON who is now BSC affiliated – ANGUS HUDSON BSC.

Some reviews about the work of ANGUS HUDSON BSC…

LAST PASSENGER – TRAILER

“Enhanced by Angus Hudson’s inventive widescreen lensing of the cramped locations and Joe Walker’s razor-sharp editing, the fast-paced film barrels along like a speeding locomotive.” HollywoodReporter.com

“… satisfying, in no small part due to the exquisite eyes of Nooshin and Director of Photography Angus Hudson, who constantly find new angles and frames in the cramped train quarters that serve as the exclusive setting.” VillageVoice.com

THE BROKEN  TRAILER

“The Broken is a brooding, atmospheric exercise in upscale psychological horror… tech credits are impeccable, particularly the sound work and Angus Hudson’s widescreen cinematography, capturing London at its grimmest and most foreboding.” Variety.com

THE BROKEN won Best Cinematography for ANGUS HUDSON BSC at Sitges International Film Festival.

ANGUS HUDSON BSCs latest commercial was directed by Christian Larson (RSA Films) for NEXXUS – SHOWREEL.
