Into the Storm [En la Tormenta]

Editor: Paul Holland

Director: Adam Brown

Executive Producer: Dimitri Doganis

A huge congratulations to Adam Brown, the team at RAW Films and our very own, brilliant Paul Holland for winning the Grand Chameleon Award, Best Documentary Feature and Audience Award at Brooklyn Film Festival for Into the Storm.

This feature length documentary delves into the life of raw surf talent Jhonny Guerrero, a troubled teenager from a crime-ridden barrio of Lima, Peru, who struggles against the odds to realise his dream of becoming a professional surfer and lift his family out of poverty. Taken under the wing of a former world champion, he flourishes. But barrio life proves hard to escape and he is caught up in a drive-by shooting. His surfing suffers until his father is released from prison. With his father’s love and support, his results suddenly match his potential and his life is transformed.

Paul shared that ‘the most challenging aspect of this project wasn’t finding the story within the 400 hrs of Spanish spoken rushes, accumulated over 5 years by director Adam Brown, but matching the enthusiasm and passion he had for this amazing story. I feel grateful to have played a small part in telling it.’

The Big Flower Fight is an 8-part series hosted by comedians Vic Reeves and Natasia Demetriou that sees “ten creative teams square off in a larger-than-life contest to create huge flower installations.”

Every episode will test a different set of skills and feature a unique challenge – the teams are tasked with building a larger-than-life sculpture, competing to design and build the biggest, most outlandish and beautiful works of art possible from flowers and other natural materials and staving off elimination for one more week.

Editor Tom Savage cut episode 2 of the show and said: ‘it’s definitely given me inspiration to get busy in the garden with all my free time not working in lockdown. I’ve always wanted a 12ft floral monster crawling out of a hole in the ground!’

All On The Line

Raw TV for Discovery Channel

Editors: Simon Holmes and Charlie Webb

All On The Line follows two boat crews in Gloucester, Massachusetts, who work through the winter to catch the valuable North Atlantic Bluefin Tuna.The “monster” fish can weigh more than 1,000 pounds, with prices reaching as high as US$20,000 for a single catch. With tight quotas to prevent overfishing and encourage sustainability, fishermen must reel in the biggest tuna as fast as possible — but each boat is allowed one catch per day, and must reel the fish in by hand.

Editor Simon Holmes cut Episode 1 and Charlie Webb did 10 days on the series too. Simon said “I love the challenge and creative possibilities of working on a new series. Cutting Ep1 of All On The Line was both an education and a joy. My hat however goes off to the two film crews who got their sea legs whilst shooting for 16hrs a day!

The series premieres Friday 22nd May on Discovery Channel.

Editors:

Roy Williams

Andreas Torner

David Greathead

A family reunion is on the cards for Royle Family fans – with Jim and Antony coming together for a brand new six part show.

Actors Ricky Tomlinson and Ralf Little will be swapping the sofa for a campervan as they head off on a very special road trip around the north of England for cable channel Gold. The twosome will bring their usual comedy stylings as they travel, where they’ll share memories, entertain each other and along the way discover just what sets the north apart from the rest of the UK.

Roy Williams edited Episode 6, Manchester and Liverpool. This was great for Roy with Liverpool being his home town.

David Greathead cut the Lake District episode. He said “It was a pleasure to edit, the two of them still have an on screen spark even out of character, but with little dalliances into their old parts, brought the program to another level.  Also being shot in the lakes it looked beautiful especially with some dramatic drone footage”.

Andreas Torner worked on the North Yorkshire Episode.

Episode one starts tonight and see’s Ricky and Ralf setting out from Ricky’s home city of Liverpool as they embark on the first leg of the trip, heading to some Lancashire hotspots.
