Sunset Aperture are a multi-award winning London based production company, formed six years ago, by James Hughes. They have worked teams on six continents, including Oscar Nominees, Emmy Winners, and BAFTA Winners,
Their debut release, the short film, The Velvet Abstract, is narrated by Tobias Menzies (The Crown, Outlander) and scored by Jean-Pascal Beintus (Harry Potter, Argo, The Shape of Water). Such was the interest in the project, that BAFTA invited the company to screen a teaser trailer of the film at one of their exclusive events at the Princess Anne Theatre. The award-winning BAFTA Qualifying film screened at over 100 film festivals.
The company followed this, with their BAFTA Qualifying short The Inuring. It was shortlisted by the prestigious National Film Awards as one of the four best short films of the year. It won 20 awards at 60 film festivals, a one in three win ratio. These screenings include Oscar and BAFTA qualifying festivals.
Their short film, The Sands of Time, screened at 70 international film festivals.
They followed this with their next short film, When the Rain Sets In, which won a pitching contest on stage at BAFTA. The film was edited by the Oscar-Nominated Editor of Green Book. It has recently completed its festival run.
Sunset Aperture have just released their latest short film Sonar onto the festival circuit, after an ambitious shoot, and a global post-production across five International cities.
They are now in post-production on their next release, Chairs, starring two BAFTA Winners. It will be released in 2023.
Along with these films, Sunset Aperture are also developing a slate of feature film projects.
