BB88’s first 3 features are well underway with Film 1 GIANTLAND financed by the China-UK Film Fund now in post production with a view to a festival release Coming Soon.

The script was originally Tribeca Nominated and is co-written written by Andy Porter and BAFTA nominated Director and Co-Writer Yousaf Ali Khan. Giantland is a beautiful coming of age movie which follows the journey of a young boy Ryan, played by newcomer Mitchell Norman, as he meets an escaped refugee talking shelter in his woods, where he plays in secret away from his mum and her new boyfriend, who will never take the place of his father even though Ryan doesn’t know still who that is. The film has been described as "Whistle down the wind meets Kes.” The film also stars Award winning actress Hayley Squires, Goran Bogdan and Joshua Herdman.

Outside of this slate BB88 is involved with many other projects as a co-producer and we are already building our next slate of projects to follow those committed to with the China-UK Film Fund.  

We are always looking for other projects to develop, produce and co-produce that fit our international and commercial remit.  If you wish to submit a project please ‘Contact Us’.

Giantland is a first feature by twice BAFTA nominated Writer / Director Yousaf Ali Khan.

The script was originally nominated for a Tribeca award and has since been developing and adapting ready for production.

The story follows ten year old Ryan, who spends his time for the most part alone in his imagination dreaming of the Dad he never knew returning, whilst playing away from school and exploring the Giantland, an intrusive industrial movement of steel and concrete housing sites consuming his home and nearby natural surroundings. So when he discovers a bearded man injured and hiding out in an abandoned shipping container near by, it’s a dream come true. Or is it?

According to his mum’s current boyfriend Jason, his real dad was just another foreigner who humped and dumped them and this bearded man is probably a “rag head terrorist" that the police should catch and send out of “our” country, but Ryan does not care, no one is going to put his new Dad in prison no matter what he has to face.

Giantland is a beautifully crafted drama, which combines the innocence and imagination of youth with the tragic and imposing elements of arrogance and ignorance from those we think we know and the learning and understanding from those we don’t.

TagLine. Whistle down the wind meets Kes.

Producer Craig Conway was first introduced to the script on the set of Broken and very quickly it was decided that this would be the first of the three pictures for BB88.

The Cast attached are as follows:

Goran Bogdan - Bearded Man
Hayley Squires - Mum
Joshua Herdman - Jason
Mitchell Lawrence Norman - Ryan

Film 2 - The Kruger

Wolf Creek meets Cujo

A dysfunctional family try a last ditch attempt to come together again by taking a holiday on Safari, but as their car breaks down off-road in the vast and unforgiving landscape of The Kruger National Park they forget the rules set out. Rule number one is ‘Stay in the car’ so it seems their only option is to sit and wait. But with all four electric windows stuck open, they are easy prey to any of the hungry carnivores that might smell their scent. Then as what they think is “help" arrives they soon see that the real animals that surround them are not as bad perhaps as the animals they’ve become themselves.  Domestic problems seem to vanish in the face of the only thought that now matters – stay alive!

They survived a nightmare but now they're going to hell

Gatecrash drives the audience to breaking point in this supernatural modern day revenge tragedy. Adapted from Terry Hughe's Fringe First award winning stage play and directed by Lawrence Gough. A couple are brutally made to pay when they refuse to accept responsibility for an act of violence.
