BROKEN WINGS TO FEATURE IN CINEQUEST 2016

It is not uncommon that when talking about Isabella Blake Thomas to others after they have met her for the first time, they are amazed at the sheer number of things she loves doing and excels at.  A tenacious attitude to succeed in such a brutal industry that is film and TV, she never lets a moment slip without trying to create.  All of this hard work and passion is now starting to come to the fore as a short that she co-wrote and stars in, Broken Wings, has been accepted into the Cinequest 2016 film festival in San Jose.  Cinequest has led the world in its showcase and implementation of the innovations that have revolutionized film making, exhibition and distribution.  This makes it a perfect home, and a real achievement for Isabella to have her short appear at this festival this year.

Westby runs rings around the ‘Stig’

Appearing in her first TV production, Michelle showed no nerves as in her first scene she was told to drive ‘at reasonable’ speed out onto an unused port platform and head directly at the production’s star – Ben Collins.  Upon reaching him at around 40mph, she was asked to ‘do donuts’ around him as he looked on in amazement at who this relaxed looking blond was trying to run him into the nearby Thames!  Onlookers would have never had guessed that Michelle had never done this type of thing before, even with the dark clouds gathering and the director keen to get things shot in one or two takes, Michelle took to it like a duck to water.  In fact, the scene was a perfect start to the sequence as it pitted Collins’ relaxed approach and dry sense of humour with the catwalk model looks of Westby, making their getaway as they sped off in Michelle’s Nissan even more entertaining.

Ben Collins Stunt Driver is available to rent and buy on DVD and BluRay.
