Daisy – the latest from Nancy Paton

‘Daisy’, is the latest film from Nancy Paton, an Australian/Polish director, producer and award winning writer, and founder of Paton Productions.

Already in post, Dean and I are delighted to be involved and have recently designed their latest film poster, as seen here.

Next week, we see the first look screening at Warner Bros. De Lane Lea, and then we look forward to getting going on the titles.

Working again with our dear friend editor Emma Gaffney, is as always a huge pleasure – Having worked together previously on films such as Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Vaccums and Enemy at the Gates.

Nancy Paton Daisy Filming

Starring Hattie Gotobed (Snow White and the Huntsman), Max Brown (Turistas), and Lucy Russell (Batman Begins), Daisy’ depict the last days of a thirteen-year-old girl called Daisy, who suffers from sever RECESSIVE DYSTROPHIC EPIDERMOLYSIS BULLOSA (RDEB), and by chance meets Peter, an Iraq War veteran who suffers from drug addiction. Like Peter Pan, he is stuck in Neverland and Daisy, like Wendy, inspires him to change his ways. Daisy helps Peter learn to appreciate life, find home, but most importantly find love, something that she will never experience. As the credits run, we are left wondering what such a powerful little girl could have done with a lifetime of days.

Nancy wrote this award-winning screenplay as a way of raising awareness for a cause close to her heart. While the film has innocence in its tone, it is eager to depict the suffering from Dystrophic Epidermolysis accurately. Nancy worked with children at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and whilst there met an inspirational 9 year old girl called Maisy Keetch, who played Isabella in ‘Daisy’ and who suffers from EB in real life.

Alongside the filming of Daisy, a special documentary film is being made featuring children with EB, and their families, nurses and doctors who care for them. The idea is to encourage the film industry to offer more opportunities in the future for children and adults with disabilities and disease.

Nancy is also currently filming ‘Postpartum’ which she has written, a film charting the final days of a woman suffering with Postpartum depression. And is in pre-production on ‘Touched’, which intricately weaves together the lives of western scientists and local PNG tribes people, seen through the eyes of two woman each on their own path of discovery, who’s actions share a share destiny.

WACHOWSKI FILMS

The planets have aligned, as we are excited to share the news that we are now underway with the title sequence for The Wachowski’s latest movie, Jupiter AscendingĀ for Warner Bros.

After meeting with Lana Wachowski and Post Supervisor Chris Berg here at De Lane Lea in Soho, and having spent the last couple of months in research and development. Dean and I are now underway with our VFX team on-board at The Morrison Studio, planning and scheduling the build of the 3D main and end title sequences along with the end roller.

It’s an exciting film for us to be involved with, which will join a long list of Wachowski’s films, such as Cloud Atlas, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer and The Matrix Trilogy.

Jupiter Ascending tells he story of Jupiter Jones played by Mila Kunis (Black Swan, The Book of Eli), born under a night sky with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. As an adult she dreams of the stars but wakes up in the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and endless bad breaks. Along comes Caine (Channing Tatum – Don Jon, White House Down), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter. Arriving on Earth to track her down to show her fate that has been waiting for her all along. A genetic signature marking her as the next in line for an extraordinary inheritence that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Also starring Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, The Island) and Tuppence Middleton (Trance, A Long Way Down), and produced by Grant Hill (Unit Production Manager – Titanic, Speed Racer and The Matric Reloaded) along with both Lana and Andy. The film is due for release later in the summer.

We look forward to keeping you up-to-date with our progress, and sharing with you as we go.
