A Walworth-based production company has launched its first funding round for emerging filmmakers.

Up to £5,000 of funding is available through the new Grey Month’s Originals Fund to successful applicants.

They will also benefit from mentoring and practical support including equipment use.

Grey Moth, headquartered at Angel Lane, has worked on projects for the BBC, Chelsea Garden Show and the Royal Horticultural Society alongside luxury retail brands and artists’ films.

Applications opened on February 1, with any type of film eligible – from documentaries, drama, fashion, animation to artistic work or series pilots.

Archie Sinclair, the company’s managing director, said: “We’re really excited to be launching our first open call for film funding. 

“We have set up Originals to support our filmmaking community. We’re committed to continually reinvesting into this new initiative. 

“We want to grow our network of creatives and build a community around our studio.

“When we’re able, we’ll hold regular networking events, training workshops and screenings. 

“We hope this programme of free events open to all will help broaden and bolster the filmmaking community as a whole, and create routes into the industry for those whom too often face barriers to entry. 

“We already have three projects in various stages of pre-production that we will hopefully be shooting later this year, and we can’t wait to see what new ideas come to us through the Grey Moth Originals Funding pot.” 

Applications close on March 15 with interviews held throughout May and June. Successful applicants will be informed by June 15.
