THE FILM MAKERS
David McGillivray, click for enlargement
 
DAVID MCGILLIVRAY is a prolific writer, mostly of hack journalism, but also lowbrow films, plays, and radio and television programmes. His occasional appearances as an actor and broadcaster are limited by lack of training and education plus general stupidity. He is becoming increasingly unreliable, grouchy and difficult to work with.
Keith Claxton
  KEITH CLAXTON is an award-winning Anglo-Spanish director. His Spanish mother, who survived an execution attempt on her life during the Spanish Civil War, was the first ever licensed practitioner of herbal medicine in Spain. His English father, a nuclear physicist and published author, worked for the United Nations. Keith is also a qualified marine biologist and was involved in setting up the Anguilla Marine Parks Programme for the World Wildlife Fund. Among his guilty pleasures are the Val Lewton film The Seventh Victim (in particular Mimi’s haunting final speech) and The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue by the Spanish director Jorge Grau.

Emanuele Costantini
  EMANUELE COSTANTINI writes: I'm involved with sound from the early days of my life. I used to build speakers and stereo amplifiers during my teenage, then I began playing an instrument and was involved in billions of local bands in Florence. For a long while I split my life between my daily job as a cable and wire engineer and recording studios. When the Italian music industry collapsed some years ago, I moved to Rome, where I had the opportunity to start a new experience in the film industry. I worked as a camera and video editing assistant in a production company until my boss realised my sound abilities. From that moment I  started freelancing for TV, films, conferences, live events and wherever sound is. Then I moved to England to get new challenges.

Janet then went on to appear in several of McGillivray’s Farndale Avenue plays. After moving to Brighton, she co-founded the touring company Laughing Stock. She retired from acting in 1987, and Greensleeves marks her first film as a producer.
