BEN MANNING – ACTOR/PRODUCER

Ben quit his job as a senior officer in Local Government to become a full time actor almost 10yrs ago and never looked back. Discovering a particular love and interest in film making he starting making short films with talented friends, learning editing skills on the job.
Although still primarily a full time actor, following collaboration with Pablo on some comedy sketches and short films, the success of their first feature film The Snarling has lead to a more serious focus on producing and together they set up Shooting Lodge Productions with more films currently being developed as The Snarling picks up speed on the festival circuit.

2@ COMEDY

Pablo met Ben in pantomime and then again later in corporate training, and they began to write and perform comedy sketches together and, with Ben’s skills behind the camera too, started to film and edit them. So, 2@ was born.

From there, the quality of the sketches improved as they progressed and then the question was raised – ‘Why not make a film?’

Time was spent developing The Snarling and last March a small team put together by co-producers, Ben & Pablo,  shot the 1h 23m film in a very busy and intense 13 days! Months were spent on the edit, there were a few pick up days and then it was sent for the score to be written and eventually, they had a feature film that has been a roaring success everywhere it has been screened.

THE SNARLING

“A sleepy English village is invaded by the cast and crew of a new zombie horror film, but the horror turns real when someone or something starts tearing villagers, cast and crew to shreds.”

The Snarling is a comedy horror with a unique sense of humour and a joke per minute, and it marks Pablo Raybould’s debut feature film as a writer and director.

The film was self-financed and starred the likes of Chris Simmons, Julie Peasgood, Joel Beckett, Albert Moses and Julia Deakin as well as Pablo himself as the Detective Inspector, and has already been screened and praised at a number of film festivals such as the Horror On Sea festival and Derby Film Festival. Its premiere had an attendance of over 200 people who were literally howling with laughter throughout.

This film is one to watch!
