One Direction: This is Us

One Direction: This Is Us

We are hugely excited to be able to announce we have been awarded the title sequence for this years summer all-access pass 3D film sensation One Direction: This is Us’.

Having finished third in the seventh series of British television show ‘The X Factor’ in 2010 and then being signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Records.

This year fans will be able to see the group live on-stage and behind the scenes, as the camera follows the boys whilst on tour and with their families. Produced by Morgan with Adam Milano, Ben Winston of Warrior Poets and Simon Cowell, the film is being released in August by Tristar Pictures, and promises ‘More shirtless moments than you can imagine’.

Riot on Redchurch Street screens at Cannes

This weekend sees Trevor Miller’s ‘Riot on Redchurch Street’, get a special screening at the Marché du Film Theatre located in the Palais at Cannes.

Produced by music manager and promoter Sean McLusky, and starring Sam Hazeldine, Alysson Paradis and Jesse Birdsall (seen below). The film tells the story of a love-triangle that takes place between an East London rock ‘n’ roll manager and two of his clients – an up-and-coming girl singer on the verge of mainstream success and the young, front-man for a local punk-rock band, who’s about to crash and burn, leads to disaster. As the star-crossed lovers tear each other apart, a showcase gig in London’s Shoreditch area goes badly wrong, igniting local community tensions. Now, there’s a riot on Redchurch Street.

We wish the guys a great weekend for their Cannes premiere.
