Be motivated by those who say something can’t be done
We are continuing to produce what we sincerely believe are different and exciting ideas which will hopefully see the light of day in some format in the very near future. The bountiful amount of wonderful (and fascinating) locations in the North East is an-going inspiration to us and we hope to base short/full length feature films and a novel on some of the locations shown here. As with all independent film-makers the key to striving forward is funding and although we continue to look for innovative ways to fund our projects we will always welcome any help with potential funding or ideas about how to achieve funding. Writing, directing and producing projects is our bloodline and our raison d'être so if you want to get involved either as cast, crew or just for simple interest please get in touch and thanks for the support - Mike
Broken Scar is an independent film and media production company based in Darlington, North East of England.
BSP try to produce projects including both shorts and feature length films that are entertaining, thought provoking and far outweigh any budget constraints using local cast, crew and fantastic locations (of which we in the North East are fortunate enough to have an abundance of).
We have some great projects, both past, present and future and hopefully by perusing this site you will find something that you will want to see or will spark your imagination.
I started writing a punk rock fanzine, Out of Control, when I was a teenager featuring great bands of the time such as Crass, the Wall, the Lurkers and No Future UK. After being distracted by motorbikes for a few reckless years I returned to writing a music and political based fanzine 'Inkslinger'.
Following another hiatus involving world travelling, starting a family and gaining a degree in Environmental Technology from Durham University I returned to writing. After dabbling with ideas for novels I was approached by a crazy Swiss barrister called Andy Gross to write the screenplay for his equally crazy film project 'The Last Blast' (2008). This led on to me writing further short and full length screenplays both for other people and myself and eventually the desire to direct. My directorial debut was short 'The Sign' (2009), followed by another short 'Rise of the North Star' (2011), eventually leading to my full length directorial debut 'Damaged Goods' (2013).
