MPAA Celebrates British Crew Talent Supported by Madam Films A new film highlighting those people and their extraordinary talents working within the film industry has been commissioned by MPAA, produced by Imaginary Forces and directed by Tosh Kodama with Madam Films servicing the film within the UK.
The content focuses on female stunt artist, Annabel Wood, whose impressive CV includes WONDER WOMAN, GAME OF THRONES, SPECTRE, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, EVEREST amongst many others. The film was commissioned by the US government to highlight anti fraud and illegal downloading which affects those people behind the camera the most.
MADAM instantly knew they wanted to support the project and be a part of celebrating the British crew who are integral to our film business. The film offers an insight into Wood’s life on & off screen, showcasing the importance of crew in the production of film and the ambition is that the final piece will inspire others to follow their dreams. MADAM serviced the shoot working closely with Wood and Kodama. Locations included Woods home, Shoreditch gym and streets in and around Shoreditch, London across two days. The MADAM crew are all feature film experienced and worked in a way that Wood was used to and felt comfortable with. Tosh Kodama, Director says “Your team was absolutely brilliant and made my job easy. You also gave Annabel the space where she felt most comfortable and free to be herself & that comes across in the final film”.
Michelle Stapleton: “Working with a small dedicated crew allowed us to shoot at several locations over a weekend for a very small charity budget. The result is an amazing film of which I am very proud of”.
