This film follows Daniel-John Williams on a journey to find out what home means to those he meets with a backdrop of Pigeons and their devoted fanciers in Teesside.
HOME, is informative, inspirational, heartfelt and a dollop of humour thrown in for good measure, whilst we embark on a detective story and a race against time, as in this sport, as in life, every second counts.
This film has taken three years to complete, due to it being entirely self funded and Daniel-John's debut feature film as a producer. During filming, Daniel set up Nova Mundi Studios with partner Marc de Launay and then North East Screen supported the film with REACH funding, which helped get the film over the finish line.
HOME, formerly titled Pigeon Men has been a fast paced educational stomping ground for producer-director Daniel-John Williams.
Daniel-John, an actor, who is not a house hold name, embarks on a journey to discover what home really means to people and when the pandemic hit in 2020, he found himself sat at home, unsure how to stay creative, with no scripts or characters to develop for work.
Redcar Central Flying Club embraced and welcomed Daniel-John into their world and little did he know, the people he would meet, the stories he would hear and the friendships he would make, would lead to a feature length documentary.
Ian Paine is the DOP & Editor of HOME and spent three years working closely with Daniel-John to bring the film to life. Daniel-John says that sometimes it felt like we had a bigger crew, but Ian captured moments only a small crew would hope for, yet he did it almost entirely single handedly.
Marc de Launay the Executive Producer of HOME came on board to give the film more commercial direction and vision and he supported creative decisions in the edit and during some of the story development to enable the film to travel further and reach a wider audience. Marc also accompanied some of the shoot days and offered up some drone time which helped weave scenes together.
We hope this is a gentle nod to pigeon fanciers around the world, but also a warm welcome to those who want to learn something new and see how a first-time filmmaker discovers what it takes to produce a film, without a driving manual.
A reminder that this is a cast, crew & contributors screening and RTS Members are being invited to attend. Please contact us through email@example.com to enquire about attending.
