“ Inspired by true events, 'The Wick' is a dark, period drama, set in the early 1800's in rural England, seventy-three years after witch trials were banned but still continued. A disturbing tale of deceit and persecution of a woman who fights for justice against a lawless witch hunter. 'The Wick' is a universal and topical short film about strong women, women's rights and has a #MeToo and #TimesUp theme running through it.
To this day, countless numbers of people are still being accused of witchcraft and persecuted around the world. They have no rights, no voice and are condemned by misguided beliefs. “
I knew this was going to be a fun and good project to work on after a great first meeting between the writer Michelle Coverley and the director Sabine Crossen. Within minutes of sitting down to present my mood board ideas for the promotional stills and the concept for the film poster, it was clear that the three of us shared the same vision for the presentation and marketing images for the film.
The indie film is now ready to hit the festival circuit, so keep an eye out online to get a chance to see it in the cinema. Watching it on the big screen at Genesis Cinema in East London for a cast + crew only was an emotional rollercoaster and intense experience, especially seeing Beau Fowler and Ian Reddington’s performances as the villains of the story.
Below are a couple of images from the cast + crew night, there are some marketing images up in the entertainment gallery on my site, and when the film is released I will be posting a narrative, publicity and behind-the-scenes gallery here.
