Dolphins (2007 film) movie scenes

High-octane romance set in the recognizable - and sometimes gritty - world of Brighton's homegrown youth, as Boy Racer gangs uneasily coexist with the Indie scene.

Plot

A gritty, modern fairytale teen romance set in the seaside town of Brighton UK, inside the edgy and often dangerous world of the Street Racer gangs and Indie Punks the town is famous for. In the week before Christmas a strangely beautiful and emotionally super-charged love story unfolds between two kids from opposite ends of the town. A Romeo and Juliet for the too fast to live generation.

Production

The film was developed in association with Screen South and is a Carnaby International / Arcade Films / Full On Film co-production. It was filmed in two productionblocks: the first between November 2005 and December 2005 and the second between 28 September 2006 and 23 October 2006. It was filmed around Marine Parade in Brighton, Newhaven Beach and Waterloo Station in London and is in an HDV format.

Director and writer Mark Jay first had the idea for this feature film while watching teenagers pose by their customised cars. He initially talked with the drivers before engaging in more specialist research into this hobby.

During the filming of the movie Film 2006 made a behind the scenes feature.

The score was composed by Sacha Putnam and Fatboy Slim’s Brighton based Skint Records supplied the tracks with additional music from Lucky Jim, The Young Offenders’ Institute, Lo Fidelity All Stars, Doll And The Kicks, Matthew Garrity and Fatboy Slim himself.

It received an industry screening at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2007 and had been sceduleded to premiere at CineCity 2007 in Brighton, but had to be pulled from the schedule.

The UK DVD release is set for 19 March 2009.
