Bristol 24/7 Review
Local publication Bristol 24/7 heard about the online release of 'House of Bricks' and posted a feature on their website and social media channels!
"Impressively, House of Bricks eschews the familiar wobblecam approach of low-budget films, its high production values permitting Hannah, her DoP Nick Gaven and sound designer Joshua Holloway to give each of the film’s three acts a distinctive look and feel, shifting the audience’s relationship with the characters and events as the story progresses."
BBC Online contacted us about our film release and published this article on their live news update!
"An independent film-maker from Bristol has released [their] film online... House of Bricks was filmed in Devon two years ago when the Harvey Weinstein scandal was hitting the headlines. It uses traditional fairytale characters to explore the themes of gender-based violence and peer pressure."

Hollywood Women's Film Festival
The North America premiere of 'House of Bricks' took place at Dick Clark Productions in Santa Monica as part of the HWFF 2019.
The screening was followed by a Q&A with the director on the inspiration behind the film, the unique production method developed by the team and the reasons why the message of the film is so important, now more than ever.
Conversations about sexual violence towards women continue to grow. In the wake of global movements such as #metoo and #balancetonporc, the selection of this film was a huge step towards acknowledging the importance of this topic, and was a fantastic opportunity to spread the message of constructive social change.
