Page Break Productions, a Scottish film company based in Banchory, has announced it will be showcasing three of its films at a prestigious ceremony next month.
The two latest projects, ‘Crush’ and ‘In Sight’, were filmed in Vancouver last year, and the company is busy raising the investment to shoot the feature version of ‘In Sight’ in Canada in 2020.
The screening, at the Park Inn by Radisson on October 4, will also show ‘Whistle My Lad’, shot in 2014, which attracted critical acclaim and a BAFTA Scotland nomination.
‘Whistle my Lad’, a period drama set in 1911, told the story of Agnes, the daughter of a successful fisherman from the isolated village of Crovie in the north-east, and Fraser – the son of a rival skipper.
The second film, ‘Crush’, shot in Vancouver, with Canadian talent and crew, is a story about infatuation and temptation while ‘In Sight’ is a short film set in Seattle, Vancouver and Washington.
Richard Burke, writer, director and co-founder of Page Break Productions, teamed up with Michael Silva – an Aberdonian-born producer – who was working and living in Vancouver, to make the two films.
He said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity of hosting the screening here in Aberdeen.
“Two of the films being screened were shot in Vancouver, which has meant my being in Canada for the best part of the year.
“So I am really pleased to have the chance to show our latest productions here in Aberdeen from where it all started.”
