An exciting new short film from award-winning writer and director!



A new film is in pre-production and the subject of a Kickstarter campaign. The movie, Confidence, is the first original script by Paul Kane (bestselling and award-winning author and editor of Hooded Man, Hellbound Hearts, Monsters and the forthcoming Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell, which pits Clive Barker’s Cenobites against the world’s most famous detective). Paul has had three previous short films made from his stories – The Opportunity (which premiered at Cannes), The Weeping Woman (which starred Fright Night’s Stephen Geoffreys) and Wind Chimes – plus an episode of NBC/LionsGate’s primetime TV show Fear Itself, ‘New Year’s Day’ was based on his story, ‘Dead Time’ (starring Briana Evigan and the late Cory Monteith). He has also been busy turning his 2012 novel Lunar into a feature script for a UK production company.



Luke Greensmith (For One Night Only) is producing, with award-winning director Mike Clarke (Paper and Plastic, All in the Delivery and A Hand to Play starring Doug ‘Pinhead’ Bradley) behind the camera. Confidence will star yet another Cenobite in the form of Simon Bamford (who played Butterball in Hellraiser and Hellbound, but also starred in Nightbreed, Clive Barker’s Book of Blood and most recently Starfish with Dowton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt).



Confidence is a short and unusual delve into the mind of a shy man attending a self help course that takes a turn for the worse under the heckling of the therapist who is supposed to be helping him. The production is due to start filming in February and you can find more details of the the Kickstarter campaign at: www.kickstarter.com/projects/2132771429/confidence-a-short-film
