Jim Longden launches career at Curly with debut short film
Curly Films has announced the first moving image release of 21 year old director Jim Longden, who signed to the company for commercial and music video representation last year: the trailer for Longden's debut short film To Erase A Cloud.
Co-produced by Curly, and with Dexter Navy among the film's executive producers, To Erase A Cloud features poet Sonny Hall in his acting debut, playing Johnny Little, who goes to extreme lengths to find ways to deal with overwhelming grief.
Made last summer of 2020, when Longden was 20, To Erase A Cloud can be seen at film festivals, virtual and actual, around the world in 2021 - check out the trailer here. Longden and Curly are now in production on his second short and developing his first feature film, and looking to script on music video projects.
