Ross Gill - Director of Photography
Practicing darkroom photography from an early age Ross quickly developed a passion for moving images and storytelling. For Seeing Red Ross will be using a combination of vintage lenses, lighting and film stock emulation to achieve an authentic 1960s look.
Jon Rigby - Assistant Director
Friends with director Luke Jeffery from an early age, Jon has worked on nearly all of his films since they first got hold of a camcorder at the age of 11.

Shev has previously sourced and designed props and costumes for a number of films, working alongside BAFTA winning Director Robert young on a feature film set in Devon and Cornwall, and another short film which was also set in the 1960s.

Risks and challenges
Setting a film in the 1960s is inherently tricky but we're confident that our team are up to the challenge. We are also receiving help and support from the Exeter Phoenix's digital department who have an excellent track record producing short films.
Our biggest challenge will probably be making sure that there aren't any mobile phones or digital watches in shot!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
