JERSEY.- Seven teams of hotly-tipped emerging UK filmmakers have just two days to plan, shoot and edit a classic short film to be shown at Branchage’s Saturday Night Drive-In in Jersey’s People’s Park, 3rd October.

The Vauxhall 48-hour road movie challenge is set to be a race against time as 7 teams of film makers from across the UK sign up to create a classic road movie short in just 48 hours. The challenge will be headed up by prolific and multi-award winning filmmakers Chris and Ben Blaine (Hallo Panda, Death of the Revolution). Each team will be guided by the Blaine Brothers as they explore Jersey’s 9 by 5 mile landmass.

The teams of filmmakers, directors and actors from mainland UK and Jersey alike, will explore the islands cliffs and beaches, towns and villages, fields and ancient ruins in vehicles including an Astra Sport Hatch to create their films. Staying in a ‘Filmmakers Camp’ at Jersey’s Bleu Soleil campsite, the teams will work round the clock to produce their films in time for the Branchage Saturday Night Drive-In in Jersey’s Peoples Park, where they will be screened before the main feature - The Wizard of Oz.

Film makers, actors and directors already signed up for the movie challenge include; Robert Morgan, a director who has received commissions from the UK Film Council and FilmFour and has made the film Monsters; the actress Nathalie Pownall who has appeared in Spring Awakening and Doctors; comic actress Jessica Fostekew fresh from Edinburgh where she worked with Mark Thomas and on her own solo show; Emma Rozanski who is currently working on The Storymaker, a dark fable about a woman who kills herself with her imagination; Ellie Paskell who has played diverse roles in programmes such as Holby City, Burn It, Blood Strangers, Children’s Ward, and The Illustrated Mum; film director Alex Jacob who made his first short film Marbles with a budget of just £50 and Gaelle Denis who directed City Paradise, After the Rain and Fish Never Sleep.
