Due to the complete at utter lack of funding or interest in anything that even vaguely resembles art, and effective immediately, Schiltron Films is no more. Please see the attached statement for details.
I'd like to thank the ravenous film industry for pushing art to the side in favor of banal content; click-bate shite. Cheers to the death of cinema! May we all go down in flames with it.
Happy to announce that our short script, Escapement, has finished as a finalist in the Short Screenplay Category 2019 Chicago Screenplay Awards and is currently a quarter-finalist in The Monthly Film Festival (TMFF) in Glasgow, Scotland.
Also, the rough draft of our comedy feature, Rusty "The Rampant" Railroader: Scotland's most Irrelevant Pornographer, has been completed!
It's now getting feedback from Scottish industry legend, and hopefully the star of the film, Georgie Lyall.
Finally, we did an interview with Car Cooper on Escapement, and the writing process that went into penning it. You can read the interview here.
New Project Announcement
Research and writing had begun on Schiltron Film's next project: "Rusty 'The Rampant' Railroader: Scotland's Most Irrelevant Pornographer"
It's a narrative comedy that highlights the fast-paced changes in the adult film industry.
Logline: A BBC crew is reluctantly sent to Grangemouth, Scotland to interview Rusty Railroader "Scotland's most famous pornographer," and his psychologist wife, Sandra about their impact and the changing tides in the porn industry. Only problem is, now one has ever actually heard of him.
