Photographer, filmmaker, artist, screenwriter: Ben Charles Edwards has got the lot. Right now he’s turning his busy hands to a ‘filmette’ starring some pretty fabulous folk.
Living in London, Edwards is currently putting the finishing touches to his ‘filmette’ entitled Animal Charm starring Sadie Frost as a deluded and crazed actress on the come back. With references toward Norma Desmond (Sunset Boulevard), early Hammer House Of Horror, a dash of Rocky Horror and a reverend nod to early John Waters, Edwards has captured something rare with Animal Charm: macabre humour alongside valid social commentary. And yes it’s wonderfully camp, but completley sincere. Look out for cameo roles from Boy George as a police inspector, Nancy De Olio and the many stars of clubland! Due for release in March 2011, rumour has it the film festivals are already lining up! Keep one eye locked on this lad.
