In Development (2019)
The Blitz, 1941 and London burns. Jazz trumpeter, Gabriel Heydon, hooked on gambling and with debts he can’t repay, is handed one last chance when iconic night club, the Café de Paris, takes a direct hit. With a new identity and keys to an apartment in the sumptuous White House, rumoured to be protected from German bombing raids, Heydon hopes his luck has turned. But the art deco haven shields a dissolute world of blackmail, murder and betrayal, and Heydon discovers his only chance of redemption is waiting outside amongst the falling bombs.
Rotoscope animation will be used in post-production to give this unpredictable, explosive thriller the perfect noir look.
