Saturday Night at the Movies Sheffield Graffiti Kingdom and Unit 11 set

DSCF5929

On Saturday night I was very privileged to be invited to a cast and crew screening of a new documentary made by talented, local film maker, Theo Cane Garvey, called Sheffield Graffiti Kingdom. Theo has had an interest in graffiti since child hood and decided last year to make this film. It’s a fascinating insight into the history of graffiti in Sheffield and features a number of the key players involved with the birth and growth of the scene, all of whom were in the audience. It was an amazing night, the documentary is most excellent, and for someone like myself who has only been involved with graff for a few years, it was really quite educational. The atmosphere was brilliant, with a real feel that we were all seeing something very special. The film is being put forward for this years Doc/Fest, if you get the chance go see it!

Theo Cane Garvey is not new to film making and is currently busy with a new project called ‘Unit 11’  which is a follow up to ‘Plague World’  a violent, survival type horror movie filmed in Sheffield. Here is a quick look at some of the artwork produced to be part of the set.

      Thank you. I was there too. The atmosphere was fantastic and the banter hilarious, someone should have recorded that! I can't understand why it wasn't accepted by Docfest, good on you for putting it out :)
