POISSON ROUGE PICTURES and MAD ERIC FILMS present.... "COCONUT SHY" - the new musical short film from Writer/Director Bradley Porter.
A short silent film to make you dance, swoon and fall in love... again or for the first time!
Patrick and Rosie have a unique relationship. They know each other oh-so-well and their bond appears to be unbreakable. Friends since they were children, they share a love for 1930's Hollywood Musicals and electric fireplaces. One day on his way to work, Patrick meets Faye and it's love at first sight, much to Rosie's dismay. Over the next few months their friendship is put to the test in a way Rosie could never have imagined, and things turn out to be not quite what they seem. It's outcome is both heart-warming and heart-breaking in equal measure. Inspired by a love of Fred & Ginger, Disney Cartoons, Jan Svankmajer and Michel Gondry to name but a few, COCONUT SHY is a short (silent) musical for the romantic that lives somewhere in the heart of everyone.
Due to be completed in February 2013, COCONUT SHY is a labour of love for all involved, with an incredible crew, including Costumes designed by Julian Day & Shaida Day (Rush, Control, Brighton Rock) and produced by Helen Swanwick (The Iron Lady, Snow White and The Huntsman).
Starring Sarah Winter (DANCING IN THE ASHES), Marc Antolin (West End's MATILDA) & Victoria Heathcote and shot on location at Pinewood Studios, Eastbourne Pier and Hampshire, COCONUT SHY will be the answer to your winter-time blues...
