ABOUT BRAVE SOLDIER FILMS
Brave Soldier Films was set up in 2009 in order to create, develop and produce unusual but commercially viable projects for all platforms. Nurturing and working closely with new (and not so new) talent, Brave Soldier Films aims to turn ‘obvious’ on its head, giving it a sharp but polished edge along the way. One of passions is developing ground breaking concepts and seeing them come alive on screen – so needless to say, we always aim to stay ahead of the zeitgeist here.

BRAVESOLDIER SLATE PROJECTS
Brave Soldier Films are thrilled to announce the launch of our inaugural Slate in partnership with Goldfinch Entertainment which includes an exciting combination of Film and TV projects.
The Slate is now live and includes our first title, “#LondonBoys”, a dynamic urban crime drama, slated to shoot late Q1/early Q2 in 2018.
The feature, written by Nick Vasili, will be directed by Gary Nurse, lensed by Michael Edo Keane, produced by Lara Greenway and shot in London. #LondonBoys is about a boy from a poor background who escapes his violent past when he goes to university, but returns home to the same troubles that he hoped he had left behind.
The full #LondonBoys project also includes a mobile app which will be released to accompany the film. The app will offer exclusive access to content included in the film as well as providing an extensive educational function.
Goldfinch Entertainment founder and MD, Kirsty Bell, is our Executive Producer across all titles and you can find full details about the Goldfinch family, as well as investment opportunities for Brave Soldier Films’ Slate 1, on their website here.
Producer and Brave Soldier Films’ owner and founder, Lara Greenway, says, “It is brilliant to be working with Kirsty and the team at Goldfinch across our first slate of film and TV projects. The titles are all commercially minded and consist of a great cross section of genres to suit all tastes and investors. This marks the beginning of a special time for myself and all at Brave Soldier Films.”
More on our slate as we move forward.
BRAVE SOLDIER FILMS SLATE 1
#LONDONBOYS (Feature) Synopsis
Life is moving in the right direction for Chris, having just graduated from Manchester University and seeking a new walk of life with his equally driven Girlfriend.
Upon returning to North London, Chris learns the true severity of his Mother’s depleting physical condition, leaving her jobless and no longer able to provide for the family.
Chris puts everything on hold to support his Mother and teenage Sister, but something inside him seems to shift after he is reunited with former best friend, Ash. Chris can’t help but keep his guard up as Ash tries to rekindle their friendship, but the more he dodges him the greater his persistence becomes, targeting the whole family.
Chris is plagued by Ash’s haunting shadow, slowly unravelling the man and discovering what happened in the past, but also what needs to happen for him to finally have peace.
#LONDONBOYS is a realistic backdrop of London as it stands today. Not the uber-glossy West End but at the same time not an ultra-depressing ‘kitchen sink drama’ either – just a snapshot of what life is like for young people growing up in a society where they are condemned by their surroundings, and lack of opportunities.
