LONDON, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SunnyMarch, is thrilled to announce the exclusive iTunes release of the short film "LITTLE FAVOUR" on November 5, 2013 and available to pre-order now from https://itunes.apple.com/gb/movie/little-favour/id727903185.
"LITTLE FAVOUR" stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, The Fifth Estate), Nick Moran (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator) and is written and directed by debut director Patrick Victor Monroe and produced by SunnyMarch, a new production company founded by Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Ackland, Adam Selves and Ben Dillon. "LITTLE FAVOUR" is the first SunnyMarch film release since the company was founded less than a year ago.
"LITTLE FAVOUR" tells the story of Wallace (Cumberbatch) as he tries to get over the scars of war and start a life away from the military when his old comrade James (Salmon) calls in a favour. Unable to turn down the man who saved his life, Wallace agrees to help James, but soon finds it may be more than just a "LITTLE FAVOUR."
"LITTLE FAVOUR" was crowd funded raising £86,240 in 12 days, outstripping the original target of £25,000, allowing the film to grow into something very special. As part of the rewards-initiative, some funders will enjoy the chance to see the finished film at a private UK Premiere event in central London along with the cast and filmmakers.
Benedict Cumberbatch commented: "I'm really proud to be a part of "LITTLE FAVOR." Not only because the results of the work we all put in are fantastic, but mostly because we all came together out of sheer goodwill and generosity for a cause we believe in - namely Patrick Monroe and his second outing as a director and writer. What was truly astonishing was the level of response and expertise and generosity we received from nearly every level of the film industry to make this idea a reality. The title soon became an ironic contrast to the huge favours that were being done in every department and the hours being put in. But none of that goodwill would've been possible to harness without the incredible response we had from the public. We set the record for the fastest and highest funded film in crowd funding history. However briefly we may wear that crown we're incredibly proud of that fact. It speaks volumes about the faith placed in us and it is my only wish that that faith be justified by what we've done. So here it is. "LITTLE FAVOUR". I hope you are as proud if it and the way it came about as we are. A million thanks for all your massive favours."
Adam Ackland of SunnyMarch commented: "SunnyMarch took on "LITTLE FAVOUR" because it fulfills our company goals of giving artists freedom to work with their ideas and craft while making high quality and exciting films that appeal to a wide audience."
