Four8 Productions has announced that I AM PILATE, their latest short, will be debuting on their YouTube channel on April 5th. The film will also be broadcast on London Live on April 12th, programmed in as the channel’s Easter film.
I AM PILATE is the fantastic new offering in Four8’s “I AM” series, which aims to reintroduce biblical characters in timeless settings, exploring their individual journeys and humanising their experience. In taking enduring stories and remodelling them, the “I AM” films are engaging new pieces of entertainment. I AM PILATE follows a journalist sent to the home of former district governor for an interview, but his routine obituary fact check reveals an extraordinary secret.
Directed by Femi Oyeniran (Adulthood, Kidulthood, Turn Up Charlie), the film features a poignant lead turn by Shaun Scott (The Kingsman, The Bill), with his younger self played by Jamie Kristian. Supporting performances come from a diverse BAME cast including Jazz Lintott (The Intent), Letitia Hector (Venus vs. Mars, Famalam) and newcomer Kayode Akinyemi.
Four8 is pioneering the use of top-class filmmaking, acting and writing talent, making innovative and high-quality content for the modern generation. Tailored to the streaming-focused, multi-platform digital age, Four8 is a shining example of progressive production, with a team of ambitious storytellers who embrace and seek out diversity.
The short, and “I AM” series, is produced by Stephané Alexandre. Working alongside an award-winning young and sundry team, including BAFTA and Emmy award-winner Matthew Barrett and BAFTA-nominated cinematographer Miles Ridgway, Stephané is bringing Four8’s inspired, inclusive creativity to the forefront.
