Principal photography was recently wrapped in Walton, following which full finishing post will be delivered by OnSight – we are very excited to be involved in this project!

The comedy Arthur’s Whisky, directed by Stephen Cookson and screenplay by Alexis Zegerman, centres on a widow who discovers her recently deceased husband invented an elixir which makes the drinker look young again. Sharing it with her two friends, the three women paint the town red only to discover they are no longer equipped to be young in the modern world.
