James Bartlett - a writer, director and actor from the North East of England - has recently wrapped up on a project: Demoted. And, after this project having been such a huge success - being screened in a cinema for over 130 people - he is onto the next project and he is upping the scale.

Introducing Hayfields, a mockumentary series that follows Jonathan Hayfield as he inherits his late father's business and wealth. But, being as young as Jonathan is, the power and money will slowly corrupt him and twists and turns from the unknown become apparent. Will the company survive or, much like the Captain of the Titanic, will Jonathan go down with the business?

The love of money is the root of all evil.

Risks and challenges

Having already created a full twenty-five minute mockumentary, we have a lot of confidence in this project. But, we are upping the scale. The finish date, we can not be certain of until after the six episodes have been written and planned, but we know it will be finished for a summer 2018 release. We are hoping that with this budget our production can give the cast and crew the opportunity to have more creativity and freedom with the project.
