I am the one, shady man behind the shady, one man operation Leamington Underground Cinema - which has put on a number of weird, wonderful and chaotic film events over the last few years. Highlights include the premiere of a film made in a pub toilet, movie screenings in historic locations, the inception of the Masochist Film Club and a couple of film festivals. LUC has also been the vehicle for a number on on-line events, the Remote Control Film Night has been run ten times so far - via Facebook and Twitter showing all types of cool, hand-picked short films - it has a loyal, steadily growing and mildly concerning following.
We are now organising our 3rd annual festival which will take place between the 7th and 14th November 2015. As part of the festival, we have established the LUC Short Film Prize which awards the best film submitted £1000.
I also wrote and produced a very shonky film called the Toilet Story which was notable chiefly for almost all of the production budget being spent to cover the bar tab run up by the cast and crew.
