Then night begins to fall...
Based on Tom Wheeler's upcoming book of the same name about two shipwrecked brothers who discover a lost world of mythological and magical creatures and with a secret piece of legislation signed by Abraham Lincoln in 1863 called the Unique Lands and Species Act. The brothers uncover the mystery of the historic document and its lost world, Cutlass Island. The fantasy adventure is in the vein of "Harry Potter" and "Jurassic Park," with the boys swearing to protect the islands against those bent on destroying them.
Based on the Alexis Nolent graphic novel "Cyclops." Set in the near future, the actioner concerns mercenary forces whose soldiers wear Cyclops-like cameras in their helmets and broadcast in real time to both central command and living rooms. One mercenary chosen to lead an elite squad begins to realize he isn't fighting for freedom and justice as much as for commerce.

With no prior knowledge of car mechanics, two of London's brightest young stand-up comics, Alexis Dubus and Sy Thomas, embark on an epic journey of friendship and self discovery. Ridiculed by their friends for not having an ounce of common sense or resilience between them, Sy and Alexis are desperate to prove their doubters wrong. After purchasing a second-hand car for £100, the pair embark on a fraught and highly eventful 4000 mile journey across seven different countries and a stretch of the Western Sahara Desert. But with no knowledge of car mechanics, they must rely on their charm and strength in adversity to have any chance of arriving at their destination in The Gambia. If successful in reaching their goal, their car (or what's left of it) will be auctioned off for local charities. With their passion for meeting people and visiting places of natural beauty and cultural importance, this unique documentary also offers a rare insight into the people, places and culture of Western Africa. The film is a very intimate portrait of two engaging characters whose spirit of adventure and infectious enthusiasm far outweighs any fear of failure. Descending into some of the most inhospitable terrain known to man, every pitfall, pothole and breakdown is closely observed, both mechanical and human. Written by Richard Nicholls
