Brighton Rock: Redux
will be a ten minute 'low-fi budget remake'
of the original Brighton Rock (1947).
International artist and film maker Richard DeDomenici will work with local volunteers as cast and crew to shoot the same scenes from the film in their original location.
Richard DeDomenici said,
"I'm very excited to be Reduxing Brighton Rock with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, as 2017 is the 70th anniversary of the original film, which makes it officially the oldest film I have ever attempted to remake scenes from!
"The older a film, the harder it is to Redux, as the original locations can change so much in the interim. Luckily Brighton has been quite well preserved!
"This will actually be the first ever Redux I've shot in black and white, which will hopefully make the colour grading a bit easier!
"Either way, I'll only have a few days to film and edit it - find out how it turns out at the red-carpet premiere at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts on the 24th November. Tickets are free!"
Iconic locations will include Brighton Station, The Laines, Brighton Palace Pier and Brighton seafront.
The role of Pinky will this time be reprised by Brighton-based Drag King Richard Reckless.
The project has been running since 2013 and the artist has already remade classics including Trainspotting and The Matrix.
It is the first film the artist has recreated fully in black and white and the oldest film he has 'redux-ed' to date.
There is still a chance to take part in the film, in the famous seaside scene with people playing in the water and sand. No previous experience is needed and there will be a warming treat from the Regency Café after filming for those who brave the chilly climes of the sea.
The filming takes place on Thursday 16 November, from 3pm-4pm at Brighton seafront to the right of the Brighton Palace Pier.
Volunteers are encouraged to dress up in vintage and 1940s clothes
and bring seaside "props". Email Philippa Barr
