Prano Bailey-Bond

Prano’s work is known for its unique boldness as she fuses a dark horror-esque vocabulary with a refreshing newness that shows how beauty can reside in strange places. With a background in art and theatre, Welsh-born Prano’s creative stamp is both technically polished and visually distinctive.

Her work conjures up dark mythical worlds and has been recognized both in the UK and internationally. Splashed with unusual imagination, Prano’s films have won her numerous awards including a UKMVA, Best Music Short at the
London Short Film Festival 2012, the British Horror Award in 2010 and most recently Best Editor at Underwire Film Festival 2012.

Sam Baron

After writing and directing a feature film aged 14 (with a sell-out premiere at the Cambridge Arts Picture House), Sam continued making short films throughout his teens. Ten years and 4 million YouTube hits later, he works as a runner serving tea to people who can’t remember his name. But he’s also still making short films and writing screenplays, and continues to have regular enough successes to keep his Mum quiet. If he doesn’t have an agent by the end of 2013, he’ll eat his hat. But only because he won’t be able to afford anything tastier.

John Brown

John Brown began his career with professional photography, although making films though was always his ultimate goal. Starting his film making journey briefly in the camera department and as DP, he quickly discovered his real calling and passion was in writing and directing. John has developed a unique, measured and hands on approach to filmmaking. He has made music videos, shorts and virals. His last short recently played at the London Short Film Festival. He is currently writing a feature and is in pre-production of his next short.
