City Films, a community-based group is looking to make the play Warnock into a film using talent from Liverpool and surrounding areas.

About Us

We are City Films; a new community project based in Liverpool. We are looking to give opportunities for actors and creatives in the Liverpool and surrounding areas. 

About this project

The main aim of this project is to create a unique platform for all the people involved. Arts funding on a local and national level has become increasingly competitive.  

After the success of the play version, we want to make Warnock into a film. The way it has been written it is possibly more suited to be on camera as opposed to a stage. Plus, undertaking this project will let us expand on some of the characters and storylines which is impossible to do on a stage. As well as making a professional film to a very high standard, we want any profit made to go back into making more films and creating more theatre on stage. However, the core of our ethos is working together and giving local talent the opportunities and platform they wouldn't usually be given. 

We are lucky that we have volunteers very much at the heart of this project. All the actors and crew will be undertaking this project unpaid, but we would like to pay for all expenses such as traveling and food. 

Other expenses that will be occurred is the cost of the expenses for the crew to be able to operate their operation smoothly and effectively e.g. a high number of batteries when they are on location with us. 

We also want to pay the Kensington community centre where a lot of the interior scenes will be shot. This is a self-funded community venture and we want to pay them the going rate for the hiring charges. 

Apart of the budget, we have to take into account the post-production costs which include editing, marketing and promoting the film to give this the best opportunity of being successful. 

The project will be based in Liverpool. The rehearsals and filming will take place in Liverpool City Centre, Hoylake, West Kirby and Kensington. Post-production will also be local to Liverpool as well.
