Filming Begins On 'Crazy Face'

News Image
Filming has commenced on Channel 4's newest commission, Crazy Face.

The comedy horror series is from Howard Overman, creator of 'Misfits', and produced by Urban Myth Films. Production has now started at The Bottle Yard Studios, and Urban Myth Films will use the studios for 14 weeks where they will utilise their prop stores, plus build bespoke sets in Tank House 2 and Green Studio. Filming will also be undertaken at various locations across the city with the support of Bristol Film Office.

Gareth Williams, Producer, said: "With multiple studios, including a full green screen stage, prop storage and construction, The Bottle Yard Studios provides the best studio facilities in the West country. Run by ex location manager Fiona Francombe, her understanding of the film industry makes her team flexible and proactive, a valuable asset to any production. The studio areas are spacious and easily facilitated with an excellent choice of 3rd party companies on site and in the surrounding area that can supplement almost every department. Virtually any location that you can think of can be found within an hour of The Bottle Yard Studios and Bristol Film Office has great local knowledge and do everything they can to assist with finding locations and supporting filming. All of this combined with Bristol's and the West's ample supply of good and highly experienced crew, contributed to the choice of using The Bottle Yard Studios an easy one."

Fiona Francombe, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, added: "We're delighted to welcome Urban Myth Films to The Bottle Yard Studios and to see another London based company choosing Bristol for their production base. Wales was their base for their last series 'Atlantis', but we're delighted to have been able to offer them all the facilities they require for this exciting new series and to have helped to secure the work into Bristol."

Natalie Moore, Bristol Film Office, commented: "It's great to support Urban Myth Films for their new series 'Crazy Face'. The city's wealth of period settings are well known with drama productions so we're always excited to see contemporary productions using our striking modern and urban locations, and building on the strength and breadth of our portfolio. And with the series streaming globally on Netflix after the UK premiere on E4, it's fantastic to know that our photogenic city will be seen worldwide."

Crazy Face is about an unlikely duo of demon hunters and delves into friendship, love and facing your demons. The six-part series is being produced by Urban Myth Films for Channel 4 in association with Netflix. The cast includes Cara Theobold, Susan Wokoma, Riann Steele, Lewis Reeves, Arinze Kene and Tony Curran.

It will be executive produced by Howard Overman with his Urban Myths co-founders Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy. The series was commissioned by Channel 4 Head of Drama Piers Wenger and Beth Willis with Lee Mason as commissioning executive for C4.

Crazy Face will be broadcast in the UK exclusively on E4, with Netflix streaming the series globally following E4's UK premiere.
