"There is nothing to fear, my dear. This is all just a dream..."

   The short fantasy drama Songbird, our third collaboration with multi award-winning screenwriter Tommy Draper, is a modern day fairytale for all lovers of music and fantasy. The film stars Janet Devlin (The X Factor) and theatre star Therese Collins (Anita and Me, Stop/Eject).

original songs written by great independent musicians.

Winner of 26 awards, including 'Performance of the Festival' for Janet Devlin at the Actors Awards Los Angeles.

REVIEWS

"Alludes to well-known fairy-tale myth, from Sleeping Beauty to the imagery of Little Red Riding Hood... 

Therese Collins is excellent as a classic villain... Songbird is a tremendous short that shows the importance of voices... Sophie Black demonstrates a skill for the craft of filmmaking and has created an artistic short with a raft of narrative to keep an audience captivated. With a selection of thematic and emotional beats, Songbird therefore takes flight with a magical trip from the mic stand to wonderland."

- Midlands Movies

 

"We are happy to go wherever Jennifer takes us... Songbird is an enjoyable fairytale with an engaging central performance from Devlin, who creates genuine humanity within a world of fantasy."

- UK Film Review

"Janet Devlin's performance as shy singer Jennifer is such a delight! She speaks through her soul...

Even though she couldn't speak, we could feel her inner voice throughout. Janet is absolutely mesmerising in this beautiful modern fairy-tale."

- The Actors Awards, Los Angeles

"Songbird presents itself with beautiful visuals and strong performances. There is an endearing innocence about it that draws in and compels the audience... The film's pastel colour palette suits it perfectly and the design of the piece is flawless... "

 

- Largo Film Awards

 

"Refreshingly sensitive... Janet Devlin has a very charismatic screen presence...

[Songbird is] an aesthetically beautiful fantasy, definitely worth a watch."

- Indie Shorts Magazine

"[Sophie] Black easily conjures up an ambience that is reminiscent of those eighties fantasy staples Legend and Labyrinth... Janet Devlin has a natural screen presence and acting ability that show she has just as much talent in front of a camera."
