Ken and Paul formed their production company Steel Mill Pictures in 2006 when they produced their first feature film, the Award-winning, critically-acclaimed “London to Brighton”. Financed with private equity and completion money from the UK Film Council’s New Cinema Fund, the film screened in competition at several prestigious film festivals around the world, winning many awards and accolades.
In early 2008 they completed their second feature film “The Cottage”, which was shot in Isle of Man and Yorkshire and financed by Isle of Man Film, the UK Film Council’s Premiere Fund and Screen Yorkshire. Pathe UK distributed the film domestically and Pathe International handled worldwide sales. Sony picked up the film for North America and several other territories.
Steel Mill Pictures has completed their third feature film “Cherry Tree Lane”. This project was partially funded by the UKFC New Cinema Fund. It has UK theatrical distribution from Metrodome on 3rd September 2010 and Salt are handling international sales.
