You know about our TV advertising work but did you know that Happy Hour also deals with feature films? This year we’ve seen our film productions really take off! We’ve had four films released: Enemy Lines, (did we mention it recently made the Top 10 films on Netflix, not that we’re bragging or anything), Benji The Dove (through our finance company Principal Film Finance) which was released in the US in September, and Legacy of Lies which gets it release in October.
The one we’re super excited about right now reunites some famous friends and brings all the nostalgia, our co-production Madness In The Method. Did we mention it stars Jay and Silent Bob?
Jay and Silent Bob are reunited, along with Teri Hatcher (Lois) and Dean Cain (Clark), plus Marvel icon Stan Lee making his final film performance, in Jason Mewes’ hilarious directing debut. Playing an alternative version of his persona, and tired of Hollywood’s perception of him as a stoner sidekick, Mewes embarks on a quest to reinvent himself as a serious actor. Upon advice from his best friend Kevin Smith, he tracks down a secret book outlining all the mysteries of the Method Acting process with disastrous consequences. On his quest, Mewes also interacts with Casper Van Dien, Judd Nelson, Vinnie Jones and Zach Galligan.
Happy Hour provided all the picture and sound post-production from our in-house Bristol production office. We also helped finance the film and arrange international sales and delivery.
It was so great to be a part of this madcap screwball comedy, and to have involvement with such a talented team.
Jason has created a very funny, insanely fresh look at Hollywood machine, and we’re beyond chuffed to have our name on it.
Bristol is such a great place and I’m proud that we can work with international producers to represent our city and showcase it as an amazing creative hub.Tom George, Executive Producer (and founder of Happy Hour)
Getting a film of the ground at any time is a long, difficult process, let alone trying to do so in the midst of a pandemic. Thankfully, with the industry reawakening after lockdown, we’ve been able to resume work on lots of future projects. Want to keep up to date about our new releases?
