Lead Belly Released on iTunes and Google Play
- Posted On:July 24, 2022
Our second short film after ‘Being Keegan’ has just been released on iTunes and Google Play after a successful festival run, where you can now watch the film in its entirety.
‘Lead Belly’ is a short drama focusing on themes surrounding homelessness and our armed forces. It’s a character-driven story that’s inspired by actual events. The film has hard-hitting themes to be drawn upon including loss, PTSD, and mental health issues experienced by retired armed forces veterans. The team behind the film worked closely with key charities, Soldiers off the Street, Combat Stress and Broughton House to help bring added realism to the film and a truth that is rarely spoken about. The reason behind wanting to bring such a film to screen was to help raise awareness of the cause and the charities. When we heard about the making of this film and the related causes, we felt it was a film that needed to be made and seen.
‘Lead Belly’ was written by Ian Armer and Amanda Webster, directed by the ‘British Soap’ award-winning director Sean Glynn and produced by Rebecca-Clare Evans and Jamie Lomas.
Soap stars Jamie Lomas and Sammy Winward play the lead roles with cameos from Emmerdale’s Anthony Quinlan, Hollyoaks Jakob Roberts along with an array of other talented cast members, including Rebecca-Clare Evans, Polly Lomas, Kym Marsh and Jamie Lomas’s daughter.
The films’ director Glynn said, “This is a story that’s vital. When I learned the statistics of how many veterans are living on the streets, dealing with mental health issues, I was compelled to be a part of raising awareness for this cause.”
