BOARDERS

08th November, 2021

‘Working with OnSight has been an absolute pleasure. They have supported the project from the very beginning and we couldn’t have made the film without them. They truly worked with us, we felt truly supported by OnSight throughout.’  Jasmin Morrison - Producer

Boarders available on Amazon Prime as part of your subscription, captures the rich culture of the British skate scene. Told through the lives of four British skateboarders as they aim to qualify for the Tokyo Games, where skateboarding made its debut as an Olympic sport.

With director Annika Ranin, Sean Fee and produced by Annika Ranin and Jasmin Morrison from UnMannered Limited. Boarders premiered at Genesis Cinema on July 16th London with International Sales by Urban Distribution International and Reservoir Docs. The film is being distributed by Bohemia Media in the UK, it is now available on iTunes, Sky Store and the Bohemia Euphoria platform.

Filmed over a period of 12 months, Boarders documents a historical moment in time with skateboarding heading to the Olympics and looks under the surface to discuss what it is like to be a professional skateboarder; with bigger competitions and more money entering the sport, the stakes are higher for everyone involved.

Boarders is a character focused film digging deep into the journeys of a group of British skateboarders who are vying for a spot to represent their country at the pivotal arena of elite sportsmanship, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, where skateboarding will make its debut as a competition sport. Starring: Sam Beckett, Alex Hallford, Jordan Thackeray, Alex deCunha

However, a key talking point within the skateboarding community has been whether the Olympics and the influx of commercial interest it brings will dilute the core values of the culture. With archive footage covering 6 decades of British skateboarding, Boarders looks at the various waves of popularity that skateboarding has undergone and introduces a strong look and feel of what skate culture is in the UK. 

Boarders is visual and distinct in its style - after all skateboarding’s rise to the timeless status could not have happened without photography and film.

BULL

12th September, 2021

"It’s always a pleasure to work with OnSight and they delivered an exceptional service on BULL. The film has really benefited from the attention to detail Jeff and the team gave it, for which I thank them.”Dominic Tighe, Producer

Bafta award-winning director Paul Andrew Williams (London To Brighton) has written and directed Tea Shop Production’s BULL. Producers are Dominic Tighe (A Confession), Signature’s Marc Goldberg (Final Score) and Sarah Gabriel (Kidnap), and Tea Shop Productions’ Leonora Darby (A Banquet) and Mark Lane (47 Meters Down).

BULL will premiere at the London Film Festival as part of the 21 world premieres in the feature programme, The feature will play both at cinemas in London and UK-wide at 10 LFF partner venues, with select virtual premieres also hosted on the BFI Player online platform and will be at Picture House Cinemas from the 5th of November! 

The film follows a former gang enforcer named BULL who mysteriously returns home after a 10-year absence to seek revenge on those who double-crossed him all those years ago.

He is in search of his son and the truth about what happened to him. On his journey to finding Aiden, we flashback to ten years before and start to piece together a series of events that leads to a dramatic and inexplicable climax.

Dirty, gritting and dangerous BULL is a brutal revenge thriller. This world is full of characters who have taken the law into their own hands but even they can't keep control of a situation that has got rapidly out of control, and at the centre of it is BULL-and a father's love for his son-who will stop at nothing to make amends in the hope of a better future.

Paul Andrew Williams added: “BULL is a story I have wanted to tell for a while and, despite its violence, has a strong emotional pull with a father’s love for his son at the centre of it. I think we have made a really cracking film with two fearless central performances from Neil and David. We made this under exceptionally challenging circumstances during a worldwide pandemic, and I am very grateful for the commitment and hard work from all the cast and crew.”

Signature Entertainment has boarded international sales rights and UK distribution on revenge thriller BULL, starring Neil Maskell (Kill List) in the lead alongside David Hayman (Fisherman’s Friends).

I am Gen Z

04th September, 2021

I am Gen Z premiered​ at this years CPH:DOX festival and will be screening at Raindance Film Festival!

Produced by Chantelle De Carvalho and Directed by Liz Smith, this documentary explores the impact of the digital revolution and smartphones on today's teenagers and what that might mean for the future.

For those who don't know, Generation Z (aka Gen Z, iGen, or centennials), refers to the generation that was born between 1996-2010, following millennials. This generation has been raised on the internet and social media, with some the oldest finishing college by 2020 and entering the workforce.

Investigated through expert interviews and the web lens of Generation Z, the documentary explores how the explosion of the digital revolution is impacting our society, our brains and mental health.

The current tech revolution is moving at hyper speed and brings with it a lot of positives, but there is a dark side too. When our children become adults the world will be a very different place to the one we know today. It is critical that we ask questions now about the role we want tech to play in our lives and make conscious decisions about how we integrate it into our lives, and in the lives of our children.

This documentary raises questions about the contemporary world we live in, questioning what will our children become, have smartphones destroyed a generation? OnSight have had our eyes truly opened to this informative documentary and can't wait for the world to see it. OnSight’s contribution to the film includes, Colourist Ellory Payne, Online Editor Adam Sample,  Re-Recording Mixer Andy Coles and Post Producer Jeff Halsey.

Year of the Dog

24th August, 2021

Where would we be without man’s best friend? For those who are homeless, their canine companion will often be the most important thing in their life. 

Year of the Dog is a cinematic portrait of homeless dog owners and the people who work with them to ensure the welfare of their animals. It follows musician and radio presenter Simone Marie as she meets homeless dog owners and their animals in London, Birmingham, Kent and Oxford as they receive help and support from a team of volunteers from the charity DOTS (Dogs on the Streets), a volunteer-run charity dedicated to the welfare of dogs belonging to the homeless community.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Paul Sng, the documentary follows the stories of several homeless dog owners and their pets, to explore the bond between dogs and their owners and reveal how they have helped people through difficult times. 

We also meet the DOTS volunteers who provide veterinary care, food and basic supplies, and assistance with helping homeless people and their dogs with getting off the streets for good. 

By using direct testimony to challenge public perception and show that homelessness is created by economic forces, rather than the fault of individuals, the film questions our understanding of how homeless people are seen – or unseen – by society.
