Hepatitis C Directed by Conkerco

Conkerco have just shot this dramatic new film for Hep C featuring ‘Chris’, a man whose past literally comes back to haunt him. As Chris walks home through the city, his mind plays tricks on him as he see’s his younger self in potentially risky situations. Each risk underlines the ease with which the Hepatitis C can be contracted from an unhygenic tattoo parlour, a barbers unclean blade to a blood transfusion.

The film was shot in Berlin, DOP was Mathias Schöningh, it was edited by Nik Hindson at the Assembly Rooms, post was handled by Framestore and the agency are DDB Remedy.

Lacoste directed by Seb Edwards

‘Timeless’ is a cinematic fresco set in the 1930s directed by Seb Edwards.  A man falls in love at first sight and sets off on the trail of a mysterious woman, jumping onto a train and pursuing her through the carriages, and through the eras.
