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.
