Warp Films Berberian Sound Studio Shooting begins on Peter Strickland's feature

Berberian Sound Studio:
Shooting begins on Peter Strickland's feature

 

Principal photography on Berberian Sound Studio, the second feature film from Peter Stickland (Katalin Varga) will commence on 24 March in London.

 A hauntological horror Berberian Sound Studio stars award-winning actor Toby Jones (Infamous, Frost/Nixon, Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets) in the lead role. An Illuminations Films and Warp X production, the film will be produced by Keith Griffiths (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Little Otik, Institute Benjamenta) and Mary Burke (Submarine, Bunny and The Bull). Nic Knowland BSC (Barbarians at the Gate) is the cinematographer and editor is Academy Award winner Chris Dickens (Slumdog Millionaire).  Broadcast will score the music for the film.
 
Berberian Sound Studio is one of the cheapest, sleaziest post-production studios in Italy. Only the most sordid horror films have their sound processed and sharpened in this studio. Gilderoy (Toby Jones), a shy and nondescript sound engineer from the UK is hired to mix the latest giallo film by horror maestro, Santini (Antonio Mancino) and he soon finds himself caught up in a forbidding world of bitter actors, capricious foley artists and confounding bureaucracy. The longer Gilderoy spends mixing screams and the bloodcurdling sounds of hacked vegetables, the more homesick he becomes for his garden shed studio in Dorking. His mother’s letters alternate between banal gossip and an ominous hysteria, which gradually mirrors the black magic of Santini’s film that Gilderoy is responsible for orchestrating. As both time and realities shift, Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of sonic and personal mayhem.
 
Reading-born writer/director Peter Strickland’s first feature film Katalin Varga was short entirely independently in 2006 and later went on to win many awards including a Silver Bear in Berlin and The European Film Academy’s Discovery of the Year award in 2009. Katalin Varga screened at festivals throughout the world and was sold in many territories. Prior to Katalin Varga, Strickland made a number of short films and produced several records of abstract music, field recordings and spoken word.
