Wales backs Kerrigan pic

'I Know' receives $1.6 mil

LONDON — The Film Agency for Wales has announced funding totaling £800,000 ($1.6 million) toward four films including “Human Traffic” helmer Justin Kerrigan’s coming of age drama “I Know You Know.”

The Film Agency was established in July last year to foster new Welsh talent and to promote Welsh film worldwide.

“I Know You Know” is about a young boy who believes his father is a spy. Sally Hibben, who produced several of Ken Loach’s pics, shepherds the pic, which shoots in Cardiff this summer.

The org is backing Mackenzie Crook starrer “Abraham’s Point” from Welsh first-time feature helmer Wyndham Price.

Crook, who came to the fore in Brit sitcom “The Office,” stars as a man with a mysterious past attempting to overcome a family tragedy that has plagued him since childhood.

“Abraham’s Point” will be shot in London, Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan, the Brecon Beacons and the beaches of Pembrokeshire. Tony Purves produces for Price’s Spinning Head Film shingle. Price has written more than 30 shorts and written and directed for TV.

Also on the Film Agency slate is psychedelic Western road movie doc “Seperado!,” which is based on Welsh rocker Gruff Rhys’ (Super Furry Animals) solo tour of South America. Cardiff-based production company ie ie Productions received the agency coin.

The Film Agency for Wales also is supporting horror pic “Blonde” from Welsh writer-director Caradog James. Julie Baines (“Puffball”) of Dan Films produces. The project also plans to film in Cardiff this summer.

“Our slate is made up of a diverse range of films as we place no restrictions on the genre, locations or the nature of the stories that Welsh filmmakers wish to explore, other than that they need to be capable of British qualification,” said Pauline Burt, chief exec of the Film Agency.

The Film Agency for Wales is funded by the Arts Council of Wales, the U.K. Film Council and the Welsh Assembly Government, via Creative Business Wales.
