The BFI at Stephen Street was definitely the place to be last night! The Girl In The Dress had a private screening for close to a hundred guests, including lead actress Olivia Poulet, BAFTA award winning Producer Duncan Kenworthy (Love Actually, Notting Hill) and legendary British cinematographer Phil Méheux (who just so happens to be the DoP on Killing Thyme, another Capture short).
Guests were welcomed into the beautiful reception lounge area at the BFI Stephen Street. With a total of four screenings held over the course of the evening and a never ending stream of people coming in and out of them, it proved to be the perfect setting for everyone to mingle between screenings and share a drink or two.
Afterwards, guests made their way to The Jack Horner pub around the corner for some post screening drinks (since no proper event is really ever finished without a pint fueled debrief at a pub).
All in all, it was a fantastic evening with a wonderful crowd and a really great reception for the film.
Last night was the world premiere of The Girl In The Dress, and what better place to have it than as part of the BFI Film Festival!
One of only 7 films to be chosen to screen at the festival as part of this year's Film London London Calling selection of shorts, the film screened as part of the Journey section of the festival.
And our very own Nick Helm did the introductions for the night!
All in all, it was a great evening and a fantastic way to kick start the journey of our finished film.
We can officially reveal the new posters for The Girl In The Dress!

“This score…is at once gripping and beautiful, even haunting in places. It is the sort of score that would fit well with a space opera like Star Wars, in a sword-and-sandals epic, in a fantasy world fitting of Tolkien…Hancock has achieved quite an accomplishment here, and it’s a wondrous thing to behold…. the songs here are amazing. Rush out and pick this one up if you love this genre.”

We’re rather chuffed to announce that the Original Soundtrack to our short film Hawk, commissioned by Capture, composed by Stuart Hancock and featuring Catrin Finch, Serendipity (including members of Only Men Aloud), and The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra has been released on iTunes, Amazon, and now on CD via our distributors Movie Score Media (pics below) and you can own the CD by buying it here or here on Play.com or here on HMV
The Score has been critically accalimed with some fantastic reviews – We’ve pulled together the best reviews below.
”"Its gorgeous orchestral and choral score brings to mind the music from well-known feature films like the Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings franchises and holds its own very well in comparison to such giants…If you enjoy fantasy film scores, particularly The Lord of the Rings, then you will also enjoy this short gem of a soundtrack.”

“Film score paradise, composer Stuart Hancock has delivered a fine piece of work here…a moody piece of work; something of which Hancock should be proud, and film score fans should investigate.”
– George Pacheco, Boston Examiner
“The quality is so superb, which is rare. This is definitely a score worth walking into blindly. The journey is worth it…”
★ ★ ★ ☆ (3/4 stars) – – Kaya Savas, Film Music Media.com
“an astonishingly large canvass for a short film… that could go toe to toe with many of the more familiar names in the business. I highly suggest checking it out”
– A+, AJ Garcia, Shakefire.com
“If you love choral, orchestral epic scores, then you can’t go far wrong with this…this score is a must have. It truly shows what Stuart Hancock is capable of and goes to show that sometimes we have to look outside of Hollywood for the best music.”
– 9/10, Jorn Tillnes, SoundTrackGeek.com
“The film is short and so is the score, but there is nothing small about its ambition… I find there to be real beauty here”
– James Southall, Movie-Wave.com
“When you hear the lush orchestrations, female choruses singing in some seemingly Elvish language and the dark, foreboding brass that signals ring-obsessed villainy, you might think you’ve somehow time-warped yourself a copy of the score for the forthcoming HOBBIT”
– Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
“Stuart Hancock’s score for Hawk is a thing of pure beauty. In essence, this soundtrack neatly encapsulates everything that got me interesting in soundtracks in the first place. Hancock is a bloody genius”
– 10/10, Darren Rea, Sci Fi Online.com
“Any fan of Howard Shore’s Lord of the Rings trilogy scores will love Hawk as it is filled with dark and mesmerizing themes, a beautiful harmonic language and great, colourful orchestrations.”

We’re rather happy to announce the release of a 116 page, full colour, making of book for our short film Gin & Dry.
The beautiful hardback (or softback if you so choose!) book contains hundreds of stunning photographs documenting the behind-the-scenes work during the shoot and in post production. It also contains the original shooting script which was used during the shoot and makes for a fascinating read and comparison piece for the film. An intriguing insight for any aspiring short film-maker.
