At some point, in the month of July, 2011, Blind Crow Pictures became a one year old.
After trawling through old emails between the two Crows in the hope of finding the first that hinted towards the beginnings of a company, and by doing so, finding an actual birthday; it became clear that there wasn’t actually one day, or one correspondence that got the ball rolling – Blind Crow Pictures formed slowly and carefully without either of its main protagonists being aware until after it had taken shape. A little less romantic, perhaps, than the company being born as a result of one action or one overpowering realisation or idea, but a beginning nonetheless, and twelve months later here we are.
On your way to this site, you may have already seen our latest showreel, but just in case, it’s there for your viewing at the top of this blog.
After launching with our own short film, ‘Cold Shoulder’, starring the wonderful Elicia Daly and Jody Tranter, Blind Crow, we hope understandably, started to work away from narrative shorts so as to gain the finance and room to manoeuvre that was needed to make the most of our second outing – ‘Girl in the Woods.’
Please flip over to our sister site, Blind Crow Pictures for hire, to see some of this work.
‘Girl in the Woods’ was filmed over a long weekend in Buckinghamshire back in May. We’re keeping a tight lid on this picture, which is coming into the thick end of post-production, and waiting to see it in its glorious final form before deciding how to release it. The film was, and still is, a truly collaborative effort with a brilliant writer, an awesome production company, and a cast and crew of seemingly limitless talent.
Please keep visiting the blog to see more information on ‘Girl in the Woods’ as we release it.
The following twelve months are set to be even busier, with several exciting projects in the offing. Our first feature is slowly but surely taking shape; there are experimentations afoot with bringing classical poetry to life on film; a third short is in pre-production; talks with another, brilliant production company are underway which will hopefully lead to BCP’s first venture into documentary land; and all of this will be peppered with a handful of little one day shoots based on original material to be slotted in amongst our larger productions throughout the year.
We want to thank you all for reading our blog, keeping up to date with our work, and lending support when needed. We will endeavour to reward your interest with a level of work and content that is worthy of your continued viewing.
