With Production Design by Ollie Tiong, feature Postcards From London directed by Steve McLean, will close the BFI Flare Film Festival this year.

BFI Flare 2018

Produced through The Bureau and funded by the BFI, this is in part the long awaited sequel to director McLean’s 1994 feature Postcards In America.

Steve McLean’s stylish and sexy Postcards from London tells the story of beautiful teenager Jim (Harris Dickinson, Beach Rats) who, having travelled from the suburbs, finds himself in Soho where he falls in with a gang of unusual high class male escorts ‘The Raconteurs’. Set in a vibrant, neon-lit, imaginary vision of Soho consisting of multiple studio builds, this morality tale manages to be both a homage to the spirit of Derek Jarman and a celebration of the homo-erotic in baroque art.

This is Ollie’s debut feature as Production Designer, where he was able to create and build the dark neon lit streets of a seedy but vibrant Soho in a London of the past.

Postcards From London will close the festival 1 April 2018 – this is its World Premiere.

Cinematographer Theo Garland collaborates with Chris Balmond (Outsider) on this darkly comedic commercial for Capital One.

The spot focuses on a series of personal and familial mishaps brought on by our frantic, everyday lives…  a little girl in her school play as Dad’s camera battery expires, as well as a family driving on holiday, luggage strapped to the roof of the car, whose final destination as instructed by their trusty sat-nav, is a dark, unsettling forest.

Dark, comedic, unsettling and stylish – Capital One.
