Exeter filmmaker Toby de Burgh, who picked up the jury prize and the D+CFilm sponsored award at Two Short Nights at the Exeter Phoenix, is looking for a new location for his latest film.
And he’s looking for extras for his flick, to be called The Undertow -a dark and surreal tale about someone who wakes up in a rowing boat floating down the river. Hey, we’ve all been there…
He told thisisexeter: “We need to start shooting at the end of June, but I still need to find a location. The type of place we are looking for is a rural setting with a river that is deep enough and slow moving enough to take a rowing boat.
“There would need to be a characterful house, not modern, with a garden on the river with a woodland around it and we would be shooting on set for four days.”
Toby’s first film, Distraction, was made with in the Exeter Phoenix Media Centre bursary scheme, and picked up the best bursary film gong at the awards ceremony. For his latest film he’s been awarded a £10,000 bursary from the UK Film Council and Devon County Council.
