Indiewire are hosting an exclusive clip from Warhouse which you can watch here it also features the films synopsis;
Royal Marine A.J Budd ( Joseph Morgan) awakes in a mysterious house and is forced to fight for his life every day against grotesque inhuman opponents. Trapped alone in an unchanging prison of unbreakable routines, he must kill every day or die himself. As days stretch into years, the isolation and unceasing violence threaten his very soul. The only note of hope lies in the journals of a former prisoner of the Warhouse, WWI officer Lieutenant Edward Sterling (Matt Ryan). Discovered behind a secret wall, Sterling’s diaries serve as a mentor to the young marine and help to keep him alive, but what dark fate befell their author? The stories of these two men from different times interweave as their desperation to escape the Warhouse and the endless killing leads them both into taking terrible measures.

Joseph Morgan, Matt Ryan, Benjamin Read, Leon Davies and myself will be attending Cannes this year with Warhouse.
We had planned on releasing Warhouse independently earlier this year, but then the film started to attract the attention of several over interested parties. We decided to team up with Double Dutch Media International with the aim of making Warhouse available to as many people as possible across the world.
Double Dutch Media international are also representing several other interesting films at Cannes this year starring the likes of Martin Freeman, Mandy Moore, Eliot Gould, Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino and Emmy Award winner Tammy Blanchard to name a few. For more information on these movies and Warhouse, check out their web site http://www.doubledutchmedia.ca/
I feel incredibly humbled to have my first feature film represented next to so many other great movies made by and starring some very talented people, some of whom I’ve admired for many years.
Below is a very recent interview with Joseph Morgan who briefly mentions that Warhouse will be making an appearance at Cannes in May.
So I’m just back from my awesome 3 week work trip in Atlanta, Georgia. I was there finishing up or getting started on several different projects Joseph Morgan, Matt Ryan, Leon Davies, Ben Read, Mark Kendrick and myself have been working on over the last two and half years.
The newest edition to the family is a short film written and directed by Joseph Morgan starring Persia White. Produced by Matt Ryan (who is also b-camera operator and editor), Leon Davies and Joseph Morgan. I worked as Director of Photography and A-camera operator.
I’m very grateful to Joseph that I got to work on this project as from already seeing what we got in the can I just know it’s going to be something very very special.
I’m also grateful to the crew I got to work with and in particular the camera, lighting and grip team. Sean, Eric, Ken, Matt, Mikey and Ivan were an absolutely incredible team and I hope to work with them soon.
Those lines which I re-edited in hope of a rye chuckle from the reader are famously said by Clark Gable in Gone With The Wind a movie that even though is one of my mothers favorite films of all time I have never actually seen myself. I have how ever seen The Legend Of Bagger Vance (it’s an enjoyable lighthearted romp which warms the heart in my opinion), Why am I talking about two film set in Atlanta Georgia? Well that’s because I’m heading Here! At the home of some of the greatest Americans how have ever lived like Rev. Martin Luther King JR, Spike Lee, Ray Charles and Ryan Seacrest?
This is my first trip to America since my Grandad took my brother and me on a road trip round California and Arizona (when is was in my early teens) visiting the landscapes and sets where his favorite westerns where shot as well as Back To The Future III. The experience went on to influence the idea of 500 Miles North.
I’m going to Atlanta on a work/social trip which involves working on a few different projects including doing the poster shoot for Warhouse with Joseph Morgan. Already I feel incredibly at home because I have my good friends Matt Ryan and Leon Davis here as well, both who where actors and producers on Warhouse and 500 Miles north it’s just a shame we are missing Ben Read and Mark Kendrick from the A team but we will see them in May for the bid adventure which is coming up
But for now… While I was on the plane flying to Atlanata this famous speech was going round in my head because of the excitement I was feeling of seeing my friends Joseph Morgan, Matt Ryan and Leon Davis again
APOLOGY! I have since found out since writing this post that The Legend Of Bagger Vance (or The Liar Of Bagger Vance as I will now call it) was filmed and set in Savannah Georgia. I would also like to point out I only called it a “an enjoyable lighthearted romp which warms the heart” as it’s the only film I could think of off the top of my head filmed in Atlanta Georgia and wanted to compare another film to Gone With The Wind (which i haven’t seen). The only other film or TV show I’ve seen set and made in Atlanta Georgia is The Walking Dead and you try comparing Gone With The Wind to that! Not easy is it? Wait a minute if I just changed the title…
