A PROMOTIONAL VIDEO FOR “A TWIST IN THE TAIL FILM”
Supporting young talents and helping future film makers is an exciting part of our work. We have recently been privileged to welcome 6 amazing Film and Media students from the University of Greenwich. Their enthusiasm, professionalism and fresh, modern approach to film making were inspiring.
The crew’s Graduation Project involves producing a short film called “A Twist in The Tail”. Based on true stories around the world, particularly on the story of a Canadian Pig Farmer, this thrilling drama depicts the darker side of human nature.
To raise much needed funds for the film, the team set out to produce a short Promotional Video of the crew members with our Miniature Pigs Biscuit and Popcorn. “A Twist in The Tail” film will be cast at a number of locations, both in England and in Czech Republic.
To read more about this thrilling project and to support these amazing young people in their future film making careers, please, visit “A Twist in The Tail”.
