Ex-exec now feature helmer

Alexis Lloyd takes on '30 Beats'

Former Pathe U.K. topper Alexis Lloyd is helming his first feature, indie “30 Beats.”

Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play “La ronde,” Lloyd describes the pic as “six degrees of separation in love and sexual encounters.”

Ensemble cast of 10 includes Paz de la Huerta, Justin Kirk, Jennifer Tilly, Lee Pace, Thomas Sadoski, Ben Levin and theater thesp Condola Rashad. International actors Ingeborga Dapkunaite (“Burnt by the Sun”), Jason Day (“Mancora”) and Vahina Giocante (“Lila Says”) round out the cast.

Pic, also written by Lloyd, is currently lensing in Gotham and wraps this week. Producers are Molly Conners and Carl Ford.

The low-budget project was financed with private equity as well as New York and French tax incentives. Lloyd, a French native, will do half of the post in Paris.
