Renowned Short Film maker and documentarian Douglas Byrne presents his latest project, Kickstarter funded Crime-Drama Blackout, filmed in Liverpool, starring a binary and non-binary cast and prominently featuring Liverpool’s beloved LGBT community.
Blackout will take you on a journey with ex-Army Officer turned Private Detective John Rush as he battles through the gritty streets of Liverpool in search of a young missing girl embroiled in clubland’s seedy under-belly.
Utilising a multifaceted and dynamic team of individuals of various backgrounds from the North-West, it has allowed people a chance to take control of a media project where other companies have only offered rejection letters. A true love-letter to the community by way of production and content, TVPlusFilms have presented a real movie – straight from your streets and your city – of beauty and hopelessness that will speak to you, thrill you and ultimately entertain you.
