"Put away" is a short film that is in post for Hurcheon Films with Carol Royle in the only acting role, casting by Mandy Steele, cinematography by Alain Cross and editing by Gary Tobyn. A fund raising campaign is in train to complete the post production.
“The Inglenook Stone” is intended to be A D’s feature debut, and she's finessing the script with the help of her agent Meg Davies at Ki Agency. It’s a supernatural project set in contemporary Wiltshire. She’s looking for a producer for this project.
Director A D Cooper is attached to two short film projects through other production companies:
“Love you to death” is a short dark comedy being produced by Camille Gatin’s Golden Arrow Films and Jokers Pack Productions. A D is the writer and director is working alongside BAFTA-nominated exec producer Camille (BAFTA-nominated for “The Girl with all the gifts”). With the script development process now complete, the project is in pre-production with producer Roxy Holman. Alain Cross will lens the project and Jim Page will edit. Casting is currently underway.
“Stranger” written and produced by A J Merlin for Adrestia Films. A D is attached to direct this significantly different style of film, more gritty and present day than any of her other work. Candida Richardson is attached to lens the film. More details to follow as funding is secured.
A D Cooper is also working with animator Rhys Williams on a short film about the Corona Virus for Shirley Not Productions, and on a kids' sitcom with production company the Canning Factory.
She will be on the judging panel for the Monologue competition being run by N G Personal Management with the judging taking place in early October 2020.
