NIGHT OWLS (2014)

blank+slide.jpg

"You seem 'life' sad, like you've been sad for a long time... the kind of sadness which learns to live with itself."

- Mari

 

Set over the course of a single night, Night Owls is the story of two lost souls coming together. When teenage runaway Mari breaks into the house of reclusive thirty-something Kent, they discover that they have a mutual disdain for their lives, and build the type of unlikely friendship they both sorely needed.

 

Originally written as a feature script by Sophie Black, she brought award-winning screenwriter Tommy Draper on board to collaborate on the script for Night Owls. It was shot in Chesterfield in May 2014, and is now in post-production.

WRITER/DIRECTOR

Sophie Black

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

    Returning to the director's chair after the challenging Ashes, Sophie is bringing a real passion-project to the screen: having been working on the script for ten years, Sophie made the film once before - with limited resources, and amateur actors - in her teens.

 

    She now hopes to bring the beloved story to a much wider audience.

Tommy Draper

   Fresh off the back of his multi-award-winning screenplay for Sascha Zimmerman's Pro Kopf, Tommy says that  Night Owls is 'Totally unique to anything else I have written, both beautiful and painful, this is a screenplay that whenever I read it I want to make it!'
