Summer 2014 saw the birth of EyesFront Productions, a new, ambitious production company based in Margate on the south coast of England.

Led by writer, director and producer Simon Roser, EyesFront strives to work with the very best talent available to collaborate  in entertaining audiences around the world and to make ambitious, commercially viable films that have a distinct voice and style.

For the film project,  FORBIDDEN,  EyesFront have assembled a really strong cast including good friend Seamus O’Neill (Warhorse, Sightseers) – who has worked with us previously  – Nicky Bell (Away-days, Catch me Daddy),  Erkan Mustafa (Grange Hill) and Hannah Wise (Ta Ta Then), all despite the small budget. This is indicative of the family atmosphere inherent in the company’s creative philosophy, with Producers, cast, crew and writers working freely together to create the very best end result possible.

Latest film

Sun, sea and pyschopaths

When Brenda’s daughter Hannah returns home after a couple of years travelling it causes waves rather than ripples in the sleepy seaside town where she lives. With old feelings and passions stirred, not every one feels the same about her return.

Forbidden is a modern tale of unrequited love set against a backdrop of feuding families, glamorous nightclubs and beautiful coastlines.

Darren Lewis

Artist

Gender: male|Age: 44

Bio

Always difficult to put into words what he does, Darren never wanting to be drawn into ‘isms’ or a style, he is essentially a painter from Margate, and a painter of Margate on the south east coast of England. Over recent years his main focus has been to capture the varied light, atmosphere and climate of Thanet’s coastlines but more recently, a further resolution on depicting Margate Harbour and its surrounding areas has become a growing obsession. His paintings reflect the beauty and serenity of Margate, he captures a specific atmosphere of time and place created by observation in depicting the varied light and shadow surrounding Margate harbour.

As a painter predominately of coastlines, he is drawn to the light and colour of the sky, the cloud formations, the shimmer of light on water, the mood and sense of place. Margate Harbour for the moment gives sufficient need to convey his senses in purely visual terms using paint. He paints the things he sees around him, the things he knows and feels comfortable with.

dares work is generally oil on canvas or board but he has been known sometimes to experiment with mixed media exploring the unknown combinations of varied materials. The paintings vary in size from small through to large scale depending on what he feels is needed and the desire to challenge himself. Each painting, regardless of size presents a wide range of questions. Colour is important, relating subtle and intense colour relationships. A sense of place or location is fundamental to the working. It’s the coastlines he’s  interested in, where sky meets sea and sea meets sand.

From mainly lead singer lukes guitar and favoured genre rock, to neils funky slapping bass stamp, with that ever so flawless crack of robs snare drum and enormous voice from luke to top the cake off.

Luke said “Being on the local circuit for what seems to be an eternity has finally opened the doors to my creativity with these guys, ive finally found my musical home. Its the total ideal musical bond we have which when we all write, just works, plain and simple”.

Launching their first EP ‘Breakaway’ to the world this June 20th , they put on a show at their Local main town of Ramsgate, at the ‘Ramsgate Music Hall . As voted by NME, ‘Best British Small Venue’ the night was a roaring sucess and now the boys are looking to capture a wider audience.

Local Radio station academyfm thanet had them for a live lounge set, which set up a fantastic local fan base for them. With the support of the local community these guys are planning for bigger events.

Gender: Male|Age: 41

BIO

Sand and Sea artist, Ross Andrews lives and breathes the coast, his phenomenal pieces of art have been commissioned by numerous production companies and recently Bollywood came calling.

Ross is an artist that uses the natural environment as his canvas. This means that he is working with but often against the elements and as a result making his art ephemeral.

The race against the tide and the physical demand required creates real exhilaration and excitement into each piece. Whilst the overhead shot of the final piece can look impressive Ross is aware of the environment and what is going on around him. This is also seen in his “extreme” photography; he pushes himself physically to capture the life and power of the sea.

He captures the waves in full force, and offers a new view of them, unfamiliar to and unseen by many.

Ross who also has a cafe on the bay, is the Kent film office ‘go to’ person  when it comes to providing logistic support for productions shooting along the Thanet coast with his quad bikes and  storage equipment. He has supported on numerous productions including music videos and Tv Ads and  Series.
