Dave Heeley


Last Friday 7 DAYS – THE STORY OF BLIND DAVE HEELEY was screened at South and City College Birmingham.

We have worked with students from South and City College over the course of several years on various projects, and it’s always been a pleasure to have them on set. It’s very exciting to have the opportunity to help new and emerging talent. Indeed, our head make-up artist, Tania Ashworth, is herself an ex-student of the college.

It was a great turn out on the night once again, and the film had a great reception!

Among the guests attending the screening, was another Midlands born legend. Trevor Beattie is considered one the leading figures in advertising in Britain and is a prolific film producer, whose credits include the Bafta award winning Moon, staring Sam Rockwell and the feature documentary Spitfire, narrated by Charles Dance. It was a great honour to have Trevor in the audience and to spend time with him afterwards.

It was also great to finally meet Alan Sharman from the Alan Sharman Agency, a casting company that has supplied many young talented actors for our productions.
