‘Believe’ in the Theatre of Dreams

October 24, 2012 5 comments

Theatre of Dreams

Believing in dreams is a very important concept within the narrative of Theatre of Dreams. Which is why the title has been changed to Believe to best reflect the film.

We finished the newly titled sequence which we also created the off-screen branding for, only last week in time for today’s world premier screening in Santa Monica, California. Producer Manuela Noble, who is co-hosting today’s event with Gary Smith of Intandem Films, told us “We had to change the title because people who didn’t know what Theatre of Dreams was, thought the film had something to do with the theatre, maybe Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and that it sounded ‘high brow’, which is the last thing we wanted”.

AMC Screenings and Soho House West Hollywood Screening Room

Today’s event is for the US buyers and tomorrow sees another screening at Soho House, West Hollywood. With next week rolling on for AFM (American Film Market) screenings at the AMC Santa Monica, Manuela went on to tell us “This is a film for everyone, with themes that effect us all, it is for the whole family, young and old. So we chose a title that would speak to an international audience we hope to attract”.

We wish Manuela and the team the very best from the next few days, and look forward to hearing a great response for a film we all ‘believe’ in.

A Liar's Autobiography

Day 6 of the 56th BFI Film Festival sees the premier tonight of ‘A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman’.

Our very own New Business Manager Annabel Wright will be attending the premier with her husband and dear friend of ours Philip Bulcock, who also appears in the film as the voice of David Sherlock along with Monty Python’s John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Graham Chapman as various voices within the film.

‘Liar’s’ has been Directed by Jeff Simpson, Bill Jones and Ben Timlett, who we are currently creating the title sequence for ‘Theatre of Dreams’ which they have also produced with Manuela Noble through their production company Bill and Ben Productions.

The film animates Graham Chapman’s hilarious cod life story A Liar’s Autobiography, not only in capturing the original but in featuring some insight into Chapman’s life between the tale’s surreal flights of fancy. The animation in the film has been done by 14 different animation studios to tell the story, switching from one animation style to another.

André Jacquemin who we featured in a blog back in July this year, has been responsible as the music editor and supervising sound editor for the film which gets it’s nationwide UK release on 25 January 2013.

We wish them every success with tonight’s premier and with the films release.
