Lucas Ochoa & Thomas Benski, Producers
The films directors, Lovelace & Hall, decided to shoot a nine-minute test film called In Your Voice, In Your Heart to show to potential producers and financiers. They enlisted the support of Cornwall-based director of photography Richard Stewart, with whom they had worked on various music videos and commercials and funded the film themselves. It didn’t feature Collins on camera but gave a tangible sense of the mood and sensibility of the feature they wanted to make.
They showed it to Lucas Ochoa, Head of Film at Pulse Films, and his producing partner, Pulse Films CEO & co-founder Thomas Benski, who worked with them on their previous project, Werewolves Of America. The film immediately caught Ochoa’s attention and he recognised that it was a unique feature film project… The test film was different to anything he had seen before.
Once we saw their vision and felt their passion for the project we were immediately excited to help make it happen. Edward & James are amazing storytellers and we always knew they would create something compelling and truly special to follow on from what they had achieved with Werewolves and with Part Of Me. It was important for them to have the space and platform to create something that will help define and evolve them as directors, which is an integral part of what we are trying to build here at Pulse.
