Microwave pair find distribution

Metrodome, Revolver take 'Shifty,' 'Mum'

LONDON — The first two low-budget Brit pics out of the oven from Film London’s Microwave scheme have been picked up for distribution.

Eran Creevy’s urban thriller “Shifty,” about a day in the life of a drug dealer, has been snapped up by Metrodome for U.K., Ireland and Eastern Europe.

In a separate deal, Steven Sheil’s contemporary horror “Mum & Dad” has been picked up by Revolver Ent. for U.K., Ireland and U.S. distribution.

“These distribution deals are excellent news for Microwave and evidence the scheme is producing work that the film industry are really interested in, despite early skepticism,” commented Maggie Ellis, head of production, Film London. “From the filmmaking talent we’ve seen, we are extremely confident we will continue to get results.”

Three further Microwave films in pre-production are Suki Singh’s psychological thriller “Analogue”; Jes Benstock’s alternative Miss World doc “The British Guide to Showing Off”; and Kolton Lee’s “Freestyle,” a teen romance based around the world of freestyle basketball.

Microwave was established in 2006 to make commercially viable fare on budgets smaller than $200,000. Film London typically ponies up $100,000 per project.
