As intended, we are working very hard to:
1. FINALISE SHORT VERSION FOR FESTIVAL & MARKETS RELEASE this year and next 2014-15
2. PROGRESS DEVELOPMENT AS FEATURE FILM
After taking in much feedback from all of you who kindly offered it (see some of the COMMENTS received) and many still to be added, we can announce that a new short version will be soon released for festivals.
MERCY as feature film script is in progression too. At present in Pre-pre-production via Bath Spa University’s MA in Feature Film Making. Here we aim to be on production by 2015-16 aiming to have an ‘Offline version’ by 2016.

THANK YOU ALL WHO ATTENDED
There was a real buzz in the building thanks to your support and interesting comments. Your presence and feedback was hugely appreciated and is now been considered in our minds prior to the final print. Special thanks to the professionals attending and for sharing your thoughts. I look forward to have you on the private viewing and the discussion to follow soon. Please do let us know of your availability to plan well in advance.
Please keep sending or adding here your comments. They are all valid and relevant.
A word of apology to the youngster who found it upsetting. I was very sorry when I found out and will love to talk to you. Though we had stated it was a 12A film some parents felt it was okay to bring younger ones to the screening. Most children coped really well and I had a chance to meet many of them and hear their thoughts after the screening but I shall make it clearer next time that we do mean 12A.
We will be screening the short film at Chapter Arts Cinema on Sunday 26th January at 1pm. This screening is mainly for crew, artists, friends, family, blog followers, other invited guests and the media. If you would like to attend and you have not received an invite do please contact us.

‘MERCY’ explores themes everyone in the creative team care deeply about. That of good mother’s-bad mother’s love, lone parents, young carers, looked after children, adoption of fostered children and its connection to unprivileged families and mental health. We believe this is a subject presently in need of an artistic response, one that can engage the general public as much as the professionals and bring about further discussions and awareness. Our first stop is looking into the childhood experiences of young carer who ends in foster care.
But who is a Young carer? See this animation link here.
