Principal photography is underway on location in Brighton on John Jencks’ UK ensemble comedy Promenade.

The UK feature is written by David Wigram, and produced by Apostasy producer Marcie MacLellan. The Electric Shadow Company and Frank and Lively, in association with Jencks, produced the film. It was fully financed. The film is the first UK production to use Call It! throughout pre-production and production. This application allows cast and crew members to anonymously report workplace behaviour and raise concerns about bullying, health and security, working conditions, and safeguarding. A wellbeing facilitator is also available to cast and crew throughout the shoot.

“Having spent seven years producing a superhero movie

, I wanted to direct a film that was the diametric opposite,” said Jencks, who described


as “a community-led film with no single hero.”[Rupert Sanders’ The Crow]UK filmmaker Jencks previously directed 2017 comedy The Hippopotamus, based on Stephen Fry’s novel; and has produced titles including 2019 shorts anthology

The Uncertain Kingdom, as well as Lionsgate’s The Crow, starring Bill Skarsgard and FKA Twigs. Snowglobe and Aamu Film Company Producers among 12 on ACE Leadership Scheme (exclusive)
