What’s New?

We are moving. After so many years based in Bournemouth we are in the process of moving the business closer to the future centre of the Filmmaking and TV industry in the North of England. Watch this space for details.

It’s official we are moving to Lancaster at the end of September 2019. Bournemouth it has been a blast but it is time to move to pastures new, hope to be back in the future.

The Film Production Company Smudgerhunt Film

Film and Video Production Company, formed in 2014 by a small group of Bournemouth University Students with films continuously in production ever since. In 2018 we started a producing a new web series of films under the Yayu brand with filming the next episode starting again in 2019/20, the first episode has already had success at International Film Festivals – see the Film Festival listings below.

Previous projects include Abjection (2014/2015) the SciFi Zombie short film,  shot entirely in Dorset. Motorcycle Journals (2014) the Documentary jointly written by Ian and Hazlin, shot locally in Dorset and Hampshire and the followup films The Man & His Museum (2015). The future was looking interesting with demand for another Abjection even before its release to become a web series and for more films like Motorcycle Journals, with motorcyclists keen to acquire a DVD. (2015 Update DVD Released and on sale at the Sammy Miller Museum). 2016/17/18 have been busy years working on a mix of corporate and promotional videos, check out our pages for examples, and we still found time just for fun to shoot a short drama film ‘Finding Alice’ for submission to the International film festivals.

Finding Alice completed in February 2017 (Valentines Day) is now running in the International festivals with selection by the Berlin Fast Film Festival, XPO North (Scotland) and others to follow, watch this space for updates.

2017 directors edit for Abjection, was selected by CIM Sueca Film Festival 2017 (Spain) and was Winner of Best Picture in B-Movie category at the Oniros Film Awards (Italy).

And more success for Motorcycle Journals selected for Best Documentary at the Oniros Film Awards 2017.

Smudgerhunt Film The Film Production Company

In 2014 the founder members, Ian F. Hunt and Nor Hazlin Nor Salam were looking actively towards making films for fun and for the film festival circuit with high hopes for their films, including the well-received documentary short ‘White Lining’ selected by 3 film festivals for screening, leading to the production of new films and further festival successes.

Ian and Hazlin both studied for their Masters Degrees at Bournemouth University Dorset in 2013/14, Ian in Cinematography and Hazlin in Directing. See their profile pages for details. While at Bournemouth University they worked together on several films and with other enthusiastic and highly talented people to create some amazing high quality student films. They are now both ready for the next step and are working on new projects both in England and Malaysia.

Watch out for them at Film Festivals over the coming months, talk to them about their new projects as they work towards and hope for further film festival success for their films.

Bournemouth University - Free Your Fitness Project - sportBU Testimonials

Ian Hunt has worked on filming ‘Free Your Fitness’ sports activities over the last term. Ian has uploaded the videos onto YouTube and I was able to use the videos as part of a presentation I carried out to Sport England. The videos went down well with the Sport England staff and everyone from other Universities enjoyed watching the rewards of the work that Ian has carried out.
Ian was always on hand to meet when I requested him to, was happy to attend a variety of activities and carried out filming to a good standard.
I will be able to use the videos that Ian has done, for the future benefit of the ‘Free Your Fitness’ Project and would just like to take this opportunity to thank Ian for the filming that he has done.

White Lining Documentary Short Film

 

Where it all began, this is the very first film created by Bournemouth University Students, Nor Hazlin Salam and Ian F. Hunt, the filmmaking team that went onto form Smudgerhunt Film.

 

White Lining Movie PosterThis short documentary created as part of a Bournemouth University student project and filmed in just a few days in 2014 as we follow a road gang painting white lines on England’s roads.

On the face of it another real life story about ordinary people and their daily jobs, but this story has a unexpected twist as we start to look in more depth at the people and their jobs.

As we admire the skill of road gang as they hand paint the lines and circles that we take for granted, the lines on our roads, parking spaces and even the runways of the Airports.

OFFICIAL SELECTION - Hak- Is Short Film Festival - 2018But there’s the twist to the story and we develop this thread as the film progresses, be prepared to be surprised, just as many film festivals have been over the years. The full length film is not in the public domain, so keep an eye out for film festival screening dates, which we will post on our Facebook Pages.

 

XPO North 2015This short film in the future could be developed into a Web Series about working people and their jobs or feature in a full length documentary by Smudgerhunt Film the video production company setup by  students to showcase our films and creative talent.
