I watched the final episode of the Peaky Blinders at The Spotted Dog on Thursday, by invitation of the Digbeth Residents Association. They’re responsible for keeping that part of town as a kicking, exciting place to be. I spoke to a few of their members afterwards and they were excited to hear about the 72, especially as we’ll be doing quite a bit of production predominantly on their patch. I’m not going to say too much here as it is early days, but the ambition for the 72 is to have a much larger presence than just the three days of filming itself. In the absence of a major festival, we’re working away on a possible month long, pop-up cinema/cafe where we open up our rehearsals and production meetings and culminates with our film being shown.
If you think you can offer us any help with this, or know anyone else who can, please get in touch!
