OnSight are thrilled to be providing full post production for the up and coming feature film “Mrs. Lowry & Son” starring leading British actors Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave.
The film will be making it's debut screening at Edinburgh Film Festival June 2019.
The film depicts the relationship between L.S. Lowry, one of Britain’s most iconic artists, and his mother Elizabeth, with whom he lived for the majority of his life. Spall plays Lowry and Redgrave his over-bearing mother, who doubts his ability but remains a driving factor in his desire to forge a successful career as an artist.
L.S. Lowry became internationally famous for his depictions of 20th century industrial life in the North West of England, and the legacy of his work remains a huge presence in the region, not least at The Lowry, a purpose-built art gallery in Salford Quays. Such was his eventual success that he was offered five honours over his lifetime, including a knighthood in 1986 – all of which he rejected – and his work was displayed in a retrospective, record-breaking exhibition at the Royal Academy.
The film has been shot in Manchester and Salford and is being directed by Adrian Noble, former head of the Royal Shakespeare Company. The screenplay is by Martyn Hesford, the Producer is Debbie Gray, Director of photography is Josep M. Civit, Editing by Chris Gill with production design by Catrin Meredydd.
The OnSight team provided full picture sound and post for theatrical delivery. We are happy to be working alongside production company Genesius Pictures, who are working in association with Moya Productions and IPG Media in Australia.
