The Landlady produced in Notting Hill

Award winning independent film production house Robo Films is proud to announce its newly completed project “The Landlady” starring Marian Elizabeth, Zoe Grisedale, Gina Jones, Sarah-Jane Howard and Bond Girl Caroline Munro.

Shot as a 4 part series of unfortunate events that lead to the demise of 4 tenants, The Landlady will be released on Halloween 2014. “Hammer horror has a large and devoted fan base,” explains associate producer Nicola, “so going for a release on the spookiest day of the year is a no-brainer.” Enjoy, but watch out for zombies.

The Mighty Aussie Road Trip

With 3/4 of the 40000km long Epic Journey completed, the Rat & Dragon team are gearing up to produce the Mighty Aussie Road Trip as their final 10000km leg of overland travel from London to Sydney.

Commissioned by THL, New Zealand’s premier tourism company, the team will shoot 7 films in total of which 4 show separate routes throughout Australia, from crossing the Northern Territory into the heart of the Red Centre and Uluru to the rain forests of Tropical North Queensland to the cosmopolitan bustle of inner city Sydney.

“It’s a huge undertaking and production will last a month,” explains producer Nicola, “which is a short time to cover 10000km of driving and around 40 destinations and activity providers along the way. It’s a challenging project but what a better way to capture Australia than on the road?”

Mojosurf launch in Bali & Beyond

Australia’s largest surf & travel group are stoked to announce branching out to Indonesia. Mojosurf will be offering guided surf adventures throughout Java, Bali, Lombok and Nusa Lembongan as well as surf courses around Bali from their Canggu based Mojo Dojo, and have commissioned Rat & Dragon to film the lot.

“Shooting surfers has always been a big ambition of mine,” director and DoP Saxon tells us. “You’ve got to be a strong swimmer and technically confident to stay safe and deliver good results. You may get a few coral cuts – it’s all worth it as seeing these very skilled surfers though the back of a barrel is just mind blowing.”


Hours after After hours

University of Nottingham presents Indian Ocean Colloquium

The Royal Commonwealth Society Kuala Lumpur is proud to announce ‘The Indian Ocean – Terrains of Meaning and Materiality: Technology and Cultural Commerce’, the first in a series of events focussing on shared histories and cultural connections of Africa, the Middle East, Asia and South East Asia.

Commissioned by the University of Nottingham, Rat & Dragon cover the event and gather audience reactions in short interviews. “Working with usually camera shy academics was quite different to our usual crowd,” explains producer Nicola. “So many ideas and complex theories, short soundbites are nearly impossible.

Everyone’s really pleased with the coverage through and at the end of the day, everyone wanted to be on camera one more time. The atmosphere was great.”
