Well it’s all in the title isn’t it? We were all delighted when it was announced that Playing Burton won the Welsh BAFTA in the 2014 category of Best Film/Single Drama. Even if I say so myself, it is a terrific film. Headed up beautifully by director Wyndham Price combined with a fantastic performance by Josh Richards as Burton. It’s a winning combination and the judges did well to recognise it. This was shot on a RED ONE with the original sensor and really has a lovely feel to it. We used old Nikon lenses which allow the flares and imperfections to add a certain texture that suited this subject well. It has been on Sky Arts about 100 times but never had a theatrical release, it would be lovely if this gave it enough of a push to get it there as it really is a big screen film.
