Palme-Dog-orange

A feature film written and produced by Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona.

Palme Dog is a comedy feature written by Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona in which the movie industry’s most overlooked pooches somehow find themselves at the centre of the coveted Palme Dog Awards in Cannes.

Grief-stricken Eric adopts a rescue dog as a companion after his wife Linda’s death, but comes to believe it is in fact Linda, reincarnated. Thinking she’s returned because she never got to fulfil her dreams of becoming an actress. He determines he will make up for his neglect of her in human form by landing her a lead role in a movie now. When he is conned out of his life savings by a fake producer, Michael Power, his daughter, Melanie and her chancer friend Harp are dragged into his delusion and ultimately forced to help make the film.

Palm Dog is a off-beat comedy which follows a group of incompetents as they attempt the impossible: - a period costume drama on a micro budget with a director who’s never directed and a hundred untrained dogs. It’s a tale of guilt and joy, love and bones and the power of the creative spark.

Palm Dog is a shaggy dog story, told by fine comedy talent and their actual dogs.

twiggy

A feature documentary directed by Sadie Frost.

TWIGGY is an upcoming documentary focused on the life of the greatest ‘IT’ girl of all time, Dame Lesley Lawson, better known as Twiggy.

The icon you know, the woman you don’t.

Introducing TWIGGY, an upcoming documentary focused on the life and times of the greatest ‘IT’ girl of all time, Dame Lesley Lawson, better known as Twiggy. The documentary will be the first time Twiggy has ever told her story. Her life is presented from her working class childhood in northwest London, through her international stardom as the world’s first celebrity model, to her career as an acclaimed actress, singer, fashion designer, writer and TV presenter.

Director’s Statement

Personally, I have always had a fascination for the fashion world and as a director, I have felt a huge affiliation for Twiggy and her extraordinary story. After my debut documentary on the 1950s and 60s fashion designer Mary Quant, I wanted to dive deeper into the era and cultural figures that paved the way for how fashion evolved. With this film, I will paint a distinctive portrait of Twiggy by injecting femininity and humour with punchy bright graphics. Giving it a chic and playful tone in order to bring the ‘real Twiggy’ to the big screen.

Twiggy was a working class London girl who against all odds took on the world, changing the look of women, both in society and in fashion, forever. Twiggy was was integral part of British Culture and before she had turned 17 she had already transcended into an international phenomenon. After just four short years of modelling, Twiggy quit to pursue a successful career in acting and singing that earned her two Golden Globes and a Tony nomination. In this documentary, I will explore the many twists and turns that Twiggy has faced throughout her remarkable life. Revealing, for the first time, the woman behind the icon.

classic

A feature film directed by Sally Phillips and Tony Pitts Produced by Nick Hamson, Katherine Kelly and Ronni Ancona Written by Tony Pitts.

Classic is a darkly funny drama set deep in the mysterious world of Classic car enthusiasts.

We are, all of us, witnessing a death.

The death of the internal combustion engine.

Classic is a heartfelt eulogy, a lyrical invocation of the visceral thrills that you can only get from suck, squeeze, bang, blow. A darkly comic fond farewell to the soundtrack of our lives, set on the hard washed North Yorkshire Coast.

Director’s Statement

CARS, more specifically classic cars. With the imminent demise of the internal combustion engine, we are all soon to be owners of classic cars.

Where do you stand on cars? The pragmatist sees a reliable, convenient way of getting from A to B; the environmentalist sees a gas guzzling unsustainable indulgence; the car lover thinks if you don’t look back at your car every time you park it, you’ve bought the wrong car. The classic car lover doesn’t go to therapy, they go for a drive. To them the car is more, so much more than a car - almost a person. A loyal, beautiful exciting person that they love with every fibre of their being. A miracle of metal molecules.

CLASSIC is a film about cars-and men and women and love and tolerance and about the seemingly mutually exclusive need for freedom and independence and fellowship and community. CLASSIC is a love letter, a eulogy to the internal combustion engine. It’s a film about memory. Memories make up 99.9999% of a conscious life. We present transitory nebulous uncertainty that immediately co-exists and forms another memory. We are held aloft by memory preserved in a lingering decay.

Some men love cars, and so do some women - for some they are a hiding place that can become a prison as all the passion and love is reduced to statistics and ‘knowledge’. For some, cars connect them with the child they once were. The connection of driving the same car your father did, during the forgotten boredom of your childhood. For others, it is the aesthetic, the lifestyle; the statement status of the status conferred. Some people go to work and work hard enough they can own car with vertical doors. For others, it’s about speed. The visceral thrill of speed, the senses, sights, smells. The drop a gear and disappear mob. Those who don’t like people who don’t drive fast so they overtake them

“Do you know why I pulled you over, Sir?”

“Because I let you, Officer”

Classic is about all-consuming passion and the price to be paid for not passion. And the lesson? The lesson is flowers grown on the mountainside, not at the top.
