SYNOPSIS

Charlotte Lockton has settled in New Zealand with her wealthy husband, David in 1860. But her life's dreams are shattered when he's murdered on their farm and her baby son is kidnapped. A month after paying a ransom, frustrated with the apathy of the authorities and distrusting her staff, she decides to track him down on her own. And so begins her journey through the wilds of an untamed New Zealand. She's forced to join a convoy of ex-convicts, whores, hustlers and a native Maori warrior heading for the rough mining community of Gold Town. There she meets Joshua McCullen, the owner of the mining town: a man who is key to uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of her son, forcing her to fight to the death for what she holds most dear.

SYNOPSIS

This exciting new comedy web-series comes from the Award Winning team behind "Upsomene 677" (Raindance Official Selection) and "The Knot" (starring Noel Clarke and Mena Suvari). More details coming soon.

Teen London: an exciting and edgy comedy inspired and created by urban young people; those living it for real. A world of raging hormones and fitting in; of teen angst and dodgy fashion; of mad crazes, phone Apps, chicken & chips and indecipherable Jafaican patois. 

It’s about escaping from the school bully, getting out of – like – pointless homework; dealing with dodgy teachers and – like – parents who are so uncool and embarrassing. Replete with raw teen humour and with a sprinkling of honest social commentary on top 'Teen London' pulls no punches.

A fascinating, side-splitting insight into what makes 'kids nowadays' tick (and ting).

Beneath The Hospital A Terrifying Malevolence Will Be Reborn...

When archaeologist Anna (Philips: Jeepers Creepers) stumbles across an ancient relic in a disused London hospital, she believes she can save the crumbling structure - and her year's work - from imminent destruction. Meanwhile, after being involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident, a group of terrified teenagers take refuge in one of the hospital's old wards. 

Determined to prove the relic's worth, Anna opens it but unwittingly releases the evil spirit of a doctor who once treated plague victims at the site. With both Anna and the teenagers trapped, this malevolent force can once again bring pain and suffering to those he is meant to help. 

One by one they all encounter the Doctor's evil reincarnation and find themselves fighting for their lives - and souls - in a long forgotten medieval underworld.

SYNOPSIS

In the very near future, human-like androids are a real possibility. One of the largest manufacturers is BioDroid, who supply robots to care for the elderly and to provide companionship for the lonely. They also make military robots, and when one experimental model with higher intelligence algorithms, called Eve3 (MacGregor), is purchased by Tom Ihnatko, a recently widowed insurance adjuster, the military want their robot back. But the unthinkable has happened. Eve3 and Tom have fallen in love and go on the run to try and avoid the increasingly menacing Androids and military hardware the BioDroid company use to catch them. 

Magnesium, named after the metal skeletons that give the BioDroids their strength, is a high octane, action thriller that moves quickly between exploring the relationship between man and machine and explosive action sequences full of gun battles and bloody violence.

SYNOPSIS

Emma (Fellner: The Life and Death of Peter Sellars, Age of Heroes) and Megan (MacGregor) are flat mates and like all best friends, they argue. Unlike most best friends, however, they are highly trained assassins! Megan has taken Emma off the job for falling in love with their target so Emma kills Megan’s date (Ansah: The Bourne Ultimatum, Snow White and the Huntsman) to retaliate. 

While burying him in the depths of the forest, their arguing reaches breaking point. With neither willing to back down, the normally cool and calculating Hit Girls lose their temper and all hell breaks loose. With old grudges rearing their ugly heads, can their friendship - and their lives - make it through the night? 

Hit Girls delivers a fresh and altogether different dose of action entertainment, with more to come from this exciting franchise!
