Containment begins principle photography

containment titleThis has sat in my in-box for a week festering and trying to get me to write about it. It has now succeeded.

It’s the news that principle photography has started on new independent thriller ‘Containment’. They are, currently, filming in Southampton.

There are a lot of firsts in the film. First time director, first time financier and first time producer. OK, that last one isn’t 100% true as Christine Hartland from Patchwork Productions has already produced, at least, 3 feature films – ‘WMD’, ‘Life Just Is’ and ‘Verity’s Summer’. On the other hand, the other set of producers from Bright Cold Day Films, Pete Smyth and Casey Herbert, are making their début.

It’s not going to have the highest of budgets but that’s not what films are about. A film made for $50 could be as good as one that cost $300 million. It’s not all about the budget but how it’s used.

It’s quite a personal project from the director, Neil West, as the script came from a story that he co-wrote with the screenwriter, David Lemon.

‘Containment’ begins when Mark, a failed artist estranged from his wife and son, wakes to find the doors and windows of his flat sealed shut. At first, he assumes it’s a sick joke. Then he sees mysterious figures outside wearing protective suits – ‘Hazmats’. They claim it’s for his safety but, as the day wears on and the ‘Hazmats’ infiltrate the building and begin snatching residents, tempers fray and fear takes over. Together with his neighbours, Mark soon discovers that the real dangers are already sealed in there with them
