Animal welfare film ‘Mercy’ is distributed by all the films


DISTRIBUTION

Wendy Morgan‘s animal welfare docu-drama “Mercy” was recorded by a Los Angeles-based distributor All Channel Films, Inc. All Channel Films will represent the film that premiered on the Awareness film festival in October in the USA and Canada via pay and basic cable, video / DVD, VOD / SVOD, PPV and other distribution platforms.

With people advocating for animals, “Mercy” lifts the lid on the more inedible side of the meat industry, as the eyes of a pig named Mercy say, walking from a factory farm to a slaughterhouse. Maria Austin (“The Reverend and Mrs. Simpson”) plays Mercy alongside Annette Badland (“Ted Lasso”), Mark Winget (“Quadrophenia”) and Morgan (“Mrs. Lowry and Son”), who wrote and directed the film .

“One of my goals was to bring ‘Mercy’ to the North American audience in order to raise awareness of the disturbing but important theme of the film,” said Morgan. “All Channel Films will definitely help me achieve this goal.”

SCREEN SKILLS

Screen skills has launched a campaign for hairdressers and makeup artists who have experience working with black hair and makeup to help People of Color get into the film and television industry, backed by industry heavyweights, including Netflix and producer of “No Time to Die” Barbara Broccoli.

The campaign is aimed at people with hairdressing and makeup backgrounds who may work in other industries, such as skill funds.

Participants will then be invited to apply for the program, which includes 16 apprenticeships and paid internships (supported by the High-End TV Skills Fund) on high-end TV productions in spring 2022. Companies participating in the program include Netflix and ITV Studios, which provide some of the placements.

“That sounds like a great initiative,” said the “I May Destroy You” star Paapa Essiedu. “I hope it will attract people to the industry who previously didn’t know how to get in. It is really important that the process that ensures more equality in front of the camera is also replicated in the crew, such as hair and make-up. “

Broccoli added, “We need diversity both behind the camera and on-screen and this program is a really exciting and practical way to find talented new hair and makeup artists to support our color cast.”
