There’s something of the Ealing Comedy to South Devon filmmaker Jerri Hart’s Plan B, which you can now watch online, along with the trailer and a behind-the-scenes documentary, which was shot and edited by Exeter photographer Simon Rakestrow.
With a tagline of ‘Wool, cakes heels and attitude!’ this isn’t a run-of-the-mill crime caper. The story follows habitual criminal Tony’s reconnect with his dysfunctional gang on his release from a six-month jail stint.
And the Plan B DVD will be available soon.
Jerri’s film career kicked off with a bit part in Chariots of Fire, and continued a few year’s later with a film about him, The Nightless Night of Jerri Hart, picking up the Best Film Award at Exeter Phoenix’s Two Short Nights in 2005. His directorial debut, Revenge of the Jazz Hoodies won the same award in 2007. He also wrote and performed in Ben Sherriff’s Purveyor of Pandemonium in 2006, which got the Two Short Nights audience award.
Jerri will be starting on his new film this summer.
