  • Genre: Feature film
  • Writer(s): Nicholas Blincoe, Matt Thorne

An urban comedy, based on Matt Thorne’s award winning novel of the same name, starring Ophelia Lovibond and Tom Hughes. Filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios and Bristol locations in 2010.

The production team transformed Tank House 4 into a monotonous call centre room. The dimensions of Tank House 4 allied themselves well to the directors needs and enabled the production team to easily construct the brief. The team also utilised the Energy Centre offices enabling easy access to location filming at a range of urban spaces in Bristol including the harbour-side.
