Stephen Moyer’s A Bit of Light World Premieres at Raindance Film Festival

November 16, 2022

The opening night of Raindance Film Festival’s 30th anniversary was the platform for the World Premiere of Stephen Moyer’s A Bit of Light. Starring Academy Award winner Anna Paquin (The Piano) and International Emmy winner, Ray Winstone (Black Widow), A Bit of Light follows Ella (Paquin) who, at almost forty, is forced to move back in with her father Alan (Winstone). Trying to stay sober after temporarily giving up custody of her young daughters to her ex-husband Joseph (Youssef Kerkour) and his new partner, Ella strikes up an unlikely friendship with a mysterious teenage boy (Luca Hogan). This new friend’s belief in Ella as a mother helps her to rediscover her self-worth.

Directed by Stephen Moyer as his second feature, after making his directorial feature debut with The Parting Glass and helming episodes of True Blood and Amazon’s Flack. In an interview Moyer said “From the moment I started reading A Bit of Light I knew I wanted it to be my second film. It is a stunning piece of writing by my old friend Rebecca Callard whom I first met 25 years ago playing opposite each other as actors. We’ve assembled a quite extraordinary cast led by Anna and Ray who are wonderful together.”

A Bit of Light is produced by Phin Glynn and Axel Kuschevatzky for Infinity Hill, alongside Moyer and Paquin, with Isabelle Georgeaux producing through her company Pont Neuf Productions. The film is also Produced in association with Shorelight Pictures and Great Point Media with Anja Murmann, Sabine Schenk, Egor Noskov, Victor Glynn, Geoggrey Iles, Jim Reeve, Robert Halmi, Cindy Teperman and Rebecca Callard as Executive Producers. 

Post Production

A Bit of Light is a truly personal and gritty in depth journey of discovery for a young woman dealing with becoming sober and losing custody of her children. This emotional, but wonderful film was a real pleasure to work on and a lovely straightforward film to post produce, managed by our Post Producer Joana Coelho. 

The talented Andy Lee graded using Mistika to generate even more emotion to this heartbreaking story, with his wealth of skills and broad colour palette. Senior Online Editor Adam Sample created the titles and graphics to seamlessly blend with the essence of the film. Audio was completed for OnSight by Sound Designer Blair Jollands and Dubbing Mixer Cliff Reeves.
