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.

Jamie Romp - Sound Designer

Jamie is the Artist in Residence at Brighton's Fabrica Gallery, working with young people to raise awareness about the potential of filmmaking as a creative tool.

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!
