Loaded Dice Editors Win Award at Madrid International Film Festival 2018.



Simon Willcox and Charlie Hawksworth pick up the gong for film directed by Metropolis director Pablo Behrens

Loaded Dice Editors Win Award at Madrid International Film Festival 2018.

Simon Willcox and Charlie Hawskworth co-editors of the film ADRIFT IN SOHO directed by Pablo Behrens picked up the 'Best Editing of a Feature Film' award at the Madrid International Film Festival 2018.

The editing award is particularly special as the film demanded the edit to fit 7 lead characters and 10 supporting characters all talking about the trials and tribulations of Soho in the 1950s - all living parallel lines which intersect at key moments of the film.

Also demanding was the need to shoot 'a film within a film' in which ADRIFT IN SOHO starts as a fiction of the original novel and ends up almost as a documentary of it.

The film will have its UK release in November this year sponsored by Metropolis Films Production Services in Latin America.

Metropolis Films got involved through their UK representative and director of the film Pablo Behrens and Metropolis also produced the opening credits of the film which uses Bolex 16mm B&W footage shot in an around Soho Square specially for the opening title sequence.

ADRIFT IN SOHO was finished at Framestore (at the time a Soho company, now in Holborn). Involved was master colourist Steffan Perry who created a special palette of colours for the film and now known as his 'Colours of Soho Palette'. Sound design was completed by Max Behrens and Brendan Feeney with work carried out at Wave Sound Studios, also a Soho company.

In Madrid the film also received Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Lead Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominations.

ADRIFT IN SOHO is based on the original novel of the same name written by Colin Wilson and published in 1961 as the only document of the pre-Swinging Sixties period.
