About Lawrence

Having worked in post production for over 10 years both in UK and abroad I now look to bring films both long and short form to my hometown of Worcester and the Midlands. Testarossa Productions along with Razorsharp Post were set up by myself and my wife who is also a writer. To date we have produced five short films Jinxed which was Nominated for Best Drama at Carmarthen Bay BAFTA Cymru Qualifying festival and The Taxi that screened at The Great Lakes International Film Festival, Pennsylvania. We currently have two short films in post productions Who's There the 2nd film from Worcestershire director Fernando Maffei about a girl getting on with life after the death of her mum and Homeland a distopian take on the immigration crisis in UK written & directed by Mellissa Donello. We are always looking for new talent to colaborate with.
