The company, owned jointly by Scottish entrepreneurs husband and wife team Sascha and Tessa Hartmann and Connery, have been working on a short film for some three years, with an impressive A list cast. With Connery, having come out of retirement to play a major part in the business and production, the film also boasts Tony award-winner Alan Cumming co-starring and a musical score by Oscar-nominated composer and fellow Scot Patrick Doyle. Golden Globe-winner Doyle, who recently completed the score for HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE also, lends his voice as a key character in the storyline. Other voiceovers are provided by high profile actors such as Miriam Margolyes (HARRY POTTER, ROMEO & JULIET), Richard Briers (MONARCH OF THE GLEN, PETER PAN), Ruby Wax (comedienne & broadcaster), Barbara Rafferty (THE WICKER MAN, RIVER CITY), Alex Norton (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, TAGGART), Gail Porter (DEAD FAMOUS) and top Scottish comedian Ford Kiernan (CHEWING THE FAT, THE LAST GREAT WILDERNESS).
The company has completed a seven-minute trailer of the film and are in discussions with several venture capital houses, private investors and banks.
