EDIE has taken the Edinbugh international film festival by storm. Both screenings completely sold out within days. EDIE has subsequently been awarded "Best in Fest" selection which earns the movie another prime time sceeening. Mark Stothert producer commented "we are bowled over with the response to EDIE in Edinburgh. Our screenings were amongst the first to sell out and everyone just adores the movie. It's so gratifying. Another screening gives the public the chance to see one of the standout performances of the year. Sheila Hancock giving perhaps the finest performance of her career." YOU CAN BOOK TICKETS HERE

Edie is entering it's final stage of post production. Director Simon Hunter and the sound and grading team are working away on the final elements of the movie at Post Republic in Berlin. The movie is being mixed in state of the art Dolby Atmos.
Edie is now entering the final month of post production on my film Edie. One of Britain's finest film composers Debbie Wiseman MBE recorded the score last week at Angel studios in Islington, London. It's truly a beautiful and poetic piece of work that richly enhances the film. The score is orchestral with solo guitar symbolising the heart of Edie, our adventuring hero. Attention has now turned to sound mixing and grading at Post Republic in Berlin, Germany.
One of Britain's finest film composers Debbie Wiseman MBE is to compose and conduct the musical score to Edie. Famous for many feature scores such as WILDE, Tom's Midnight Garden and numerous scores for television such as Wolf Hall and FLOOD. Debbie scored Simon's first feature film LIGHTHOUSE which you can buy here. "I am just so delighted to have Debbie onboard the project, she brings not just incredible musical talents but also an ability to read a film so well. She instinctively knows what's going on sub-textually on the screen and that adds another dimension to the music" commented Simon. "More than just a score, Debbie's music is like another re-write of the script, taking the story to another level."
