Oldham College students reach Hollywood

Posted on: 22 September 2015

Oldham College students are eagerly awaiting the release of Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance after its Media Production Level 3 students shot a 3 minute scene for the new film.

Together with the assistance of course tutor John Eccles and University Campus Oldham Senior lecturer Dave Robinson, the students shot the scene in the style of a 1970’s bawdy British sit-com in Diggle, Greater Manchester. The scene took a day to film back in January and demonstrated student’s high level of skills. LA based production company Cineridge Entertainment were so thrilled with the finished result that the scene has made the final movie edit.

UCO lecturer Dave Robinson will be flying to Los Angeles on behalf of the students on October 7th for the movie’s Hollywood premiere. He will host the two premiere nights and the Q&A sessions on both evenings with star actors. While in Hollywood he will head to the studio to record the main commentary track for the DVD and Blu-ray with star actor Mathew Karedas.
