Director Ashley Horner has started principal photography on his second feature, Erotology, being shot at locations around Northeast England.
Horner’s own Pinball Films is producing and the project has backing from Northern Film and Media’s Atomic Pictures scheme, North East Finance and Skillset.
Sean Conway wrote the script. Newcomers Liam Browne and Nancy Trotter star.
The film is about an intense summer relationship between a novice photographer and his taxidermist girlfriend. The filmmakers describe it as “an erotic art film” and also a “poetic love story.”
Horner said: “This film is everything that new British cinema should be. Erotology is extreme and explicit, not
pornographic, but a dialectic piece of art house erotica that will question notions of sexuality, the image and the
nature of what makes art.”
Simon Tindall is serving as DoP (using the RED camera), Connie Farr as music supervisor and Billy Mackinnon as story editor.
Horner’s first feature was The Other Possibility starring Nora von Waldstatten.
Meanwhile, Conway is writing the script for his feature directorial debut, Pinball’s Dog Knife Wife.
