The Document Centre recently produced a prop, in the form of a soft bound bespoke book, for appearance in a new film by London film production company “x”. Their short, independent film is called RAV1043 and was written and directed by Mark Buchanan, one of the directors at the firm. It stars Sian Clifford (Fleabag), Sid Phoenix (Florence Foster Jenkins, The Program), Dimitri Leonidas (The Monuments Men, Rosewater) and Gerry Lepkowski (Game of Thrones, The Death of Stalin) and was inspired by the life of Mel Blanc, the legendary cartoonist and voiceover artist. The bespoke book turned out to be quite an integral part of the plot, which involves the cartoonist being hired by a government agency to anthropomorphise (ascribe human attributes to) a new infantry drone for the military. We can’t wait to see the final film but, in the mean time, check out some of the stills, above and below:
X is an award-winning and highly innovative film production company based in London. As well as producing films and commercials for advertising agencies, brands and broadcasters, x is unusual in that it reinvests every penny of profit back into production of its own independent films. This has enormous benefits for the filmmakers, production staff working at x and clients commissioning work from x. Through regular opportunities to make their own independent films, the x filmmakers get to set their creativity free using state-of-the-art facilities while collaborating with their hugely talented colleagues, some of whom have worked on BAFTA Award-winning films. In fact, due to the reinvestment of profits and the top talent attracted to x, this relatively small production company packs more filmmaking punch than many far larger production houses. That, along with the creative enthusiasm, continuously expanding skill set and unusually comprehensive in-house equipment and technology, means that corporate clients benefit from incredibly creative, innovative and professional work for a much lower budget than might be suggested by the incredible final results. X’s client list reads like a who’s who of high profile brands, including Marks & Spencer, Saatchi & Saatchi, Channel 4, The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, Facebook and Red Bull to name just a few.
