heroes film

/ˈhɪərəʊ/fɪlm/   a film company 


A film company co-founded by Hero Mackenzie and Shirley Streete-Bharath, with the aim to produce short & feature length films that inspire, challenge and provoke audiences. The stories we tell either draw on or challenge the notion of the ‘hero’.  


We are interested in tales about leaders, rebels, misfits, outsiders.  These might be social or political stories. They might be surreal, bound up in a magical world. Or in a horrifying place. Or perhaps in the past. But all of them deal with themes of struggle, of fighting, of failure, and of ultimate success — whether that be literal, spiritual or personal.  


Heroes Film takes an egalitarian approach to all aspects of filmmaking, and supports diversity both behind and in front of the camera.


synonyms:  independent,  imaginative, controversial, unusual, inspiring, powerful.  

          

antonyms:  generic, boring, mundane, unoriginal, tired, predictable, bland, blah.
