HUMANUS - THE STORY
We began working on a series of horror and sci fi related short stories early in 2017. Some of these were self created and some were based on specific genres and films. All of them were written by our members. As we developed and improvised these tales, we also drew them together into a bigger narrative.
Originally intended as a stage play - a quirky, muti-facited hybrid of horror, comedy, romance and musical - it quickly developed into a film project, Humanus, and Back 2 Front was born!
We were very lucky to have been joined by some special guest actors, including Neil Nello Baldwin (from Marvellous) Lou Macarri (Football Manager) and Nicholas Gleaves (from Spiderman and Scott & Bailey)
Back 2 Front Films is unique in that it is made by and stars people with disabilities. Its aim is to raise the profile of disabled actors and film makers, both locally and nationally. We already have American Film Company Reality Entertainment on board, and with their links into the major end of the film industry we anticipate that our projects will therefore be high profile and thus bring a lot of benefit to the people of the area through united accomplishment and sense of pride.
Whilst people with disabilities are making headway on TV and Film, the profile of disability is still very low in the industry. We are hoping to help rectify this by not only training our members in acting and script writing, but also in the mechanics of film making, inculding camera and sound work, costume and prop design and special make up and effects opportunities. To add to this we are creating a data base of disabled and able bodied actors through our Back 2 Front Casting Agency and researching disability friendly locations.
