Horror films. Very bloody murder! For the past five weeks, the South of France have been the host of a cast and crew shooting a new horror film entitled “The Winedancers”.


The Winedancers by Gary Meyer. Gimp with boar

Written and directed by Gary Meyer while produced under the helm of Godam Film, the film is about a number of groups of people coming together and meeting up, in what to begin with looks very coincidentally, at a winecheateu in the South of France. Needless to say, it won’t take long until a lot of very peculiar incidents start taking place; odd Pagan rituals, chateau hosts very far from the ordinary, people slowly going off the deep and end one by one – and most importantly: bloody murder – VERY bloody murder, in fact! Plus, it offers real suspence that can almost be described as a classic game of whodunit with a lot of twists and turns!

The cast is very international, UK actors Lucinda Rhodes, Edmund Digby-Jones, Kyle Calderwood and Marina De Salis, Scandinavian actor Kim Sønderholm, Mexican actors Mariana Peñalva and J.C. Montes-Roldan, Polish actress Kasia Koleczek, French actors Miglen Mirtchev, Antoine Martin, Andrea Catozzi (an acrobat able to do the craziest thing with this body) and the towering Jonathan Christopher Duncan playing “Gimp”. Finally, ofcourse there is “Fashion One Correspondents” model Callie Roberts.


Gary Meyer

Director, writer and producer Gary Meyer about the film:

“It all started in my back garden, I was working with a friend of mine who was into films so that’s all we talked about. I wanted to write something new, raw and keep it that way not allowing it to be changed by outside influences and pressures to make it the same as everything else out there.

A mixture of horror comedy and theatre, a roller coaster of emotions. For some reason I came up with a transvestite cowboy line dancer as the main character wearing stiletto heals and tapping to the beat of “Cotton-Eye Joe”. To this day I’m entirely sure where that idea came from.Then after some brain storming and getting some work on a vineyard “The Winedancers” was born. The inspiration: Robin Hardy’s “The Wicker Man”, Tony Scott’s “The Hunger” and life here in Provence with its deep routed French way of life resisting change as much as it can from the outside world. The wine, the vineyards and the Pagan-like festivals which are held in the small surrounding villages during the summer.

Oh yes I almost forgot, and the French love of dancing…… line dancing, it seems inherent. It is so beautiful here that one can only get inspired but just below the surface of this beauty lies greed, corruption and the unseeing innocent victims who are lured here by its magic, its a magnet for it. “The Winedancers” is this story hosted by the greek gods Pan and Bacchus and not to mention a glass or two of wine.”

The film is currently being edited and the release is expected for 2014, but until then, read more about “The Winedancers” on the IMDb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3167458

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
