We are pleased to announce that Flyspy – a short film Directed by Dan Smith and edited by Brian Hovmand is now finished!

FlySpy is a short-thriller about a young, genius deviant called Greg, who has made a wirelessly controlled drone in the form of a fly with a camera in its head. 

Everything the fly can see Greg can see. He is deeply obsessed with his ex-girlfriend Haley so he spends his time secretly watching her through the eyes of his tiny robotic partner in crime. But when Greg witnesses Haley’s violent new boyfriend, JOHN, abusing her, it very quickly becomes clear that for Greg, simply watching, is not enough.

Exciting new film releases!

Satusfaction are proud to announce a couple of really exciting documentary film releases featuring the skills of our very own Graham Taylor – ‘Death Of A Gentleman’ and ‘Chemsex’

Death Of A Gentleman

Documents the story of two cricket fans who became journalists – from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale, but united by their love of Test cricket, joining forces to help save it. They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ‘Who really cares about Test cricket?’ They talk to the players, ex-players, broadcasters, journalists, administrators and fans. They venture, often uninvited, into boardrooms, offices, hotel rooms and even the home of cricket itself, Lord’s, looking for answers as to who is responsible, and what are they doing to save their game. It’s a modern morality tale about a future where sport and money collide. Showing in selected cinemas now.

Traversing a dark underworld of intravenous drug use and weekend-long sex parties, ‘Chemsex’ tells the story of a group of men battling with HIV, drug addiction and finding acceptance in a changing world — and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them. The film, directed by Vice’s Will Fairman and Max Gogarty, explores the lives and fortunes of a group of men actively taking part in the chemsex lifestyle, and those who have come out the other end and survived. With unprecedented access to chemsex parties and the U.K. health service’s only chemsex support clinic, the film seeks to understand the complex issues at the heart of the story, exploring notions such as internalized shame, cycles of self-destruction and redemption. Released Dec 2015

Congratulations JP on your new Feature Film – Godsacre

See link for trailer (edited by our very own Smurf- Ian Smith)

‘God’s Acre’ is the directorial debut of our lovely editor J.P. Davidson.  It’s set in the bleakest realms of London’s suburbs. Matthew Jure gives an incredibly powerful performance as Malcolm, a failed property developer dealing with his inner demons. Driven to bankruptcy due to the recession, Malcolm loses everything and falls into deep debt. With his only possession being a house that’s rotting around him, Malcolm must renovate and sell in order to repay his creditors and escape the spiraling danger which their lack of patience precipitates. It won’t be that easy though; the home haunts Malcolm’s mind and drives him further into an alcohol-driven loneliness. There’s something sinister in the very foundations, and Malcolm must see this through to the bitter end…
