The Danger Age

Sea Wall is supporting this short video, made by Jenni Thomas, a grief counsellor for people bereaved by losing an infant. Funding for the project is from the Angus Lawson Memorial Trust.

Globally, drowning is the leading injury related cause of death among children aged 1 to 4. They are uniquely vulnerable because they explore in ways that parents, grandparents and families never expect they will. To raise awareness

“The Danger Age” has been produced to highlight how it happens – and how it can be avoided. The film is based on the movingly real experiences and words of bereaved families of young children who have drowned.

Funding is being raised by Simon Martyn, a bereaved parent who is the inspiration behind the film. His son Conwy,aged 3 tragically died in a drowning accident. He says

“Our hope is that, by everyone watching the film and spreading the word, we can somehow help to PREVENT future accidents.”

Writer Simon Stephens, actor Andrew Scott and the rest of the production team behind Sea Wall film continue to be astonished at the response the film has enjoyed right around the world.

Well, we have listened and there is now a version with English subtitles, available to stream or download just like the original film.

It’s very simple to access – just go to the Sea Wall Film download page and  choose the “Buy Now” or “Buy the film” option and follow the on-screen prompts to select the subtitled option… easy.

Sorry it’s taken a while to do, but now it’s there- let us know what you think.

Filming Sea Wall Q and A with Andrew Scott and Simon Stephens

“She says that’s one of the things she likes about me. I like people. People like me. They think I’m gentle. I had absolutely no idea that people thought I was gentle.”

Filming Sea Wall Q and A with Andrew Scott and Simon Stephens

At the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, April 24, 2012

Simon Stephens is an Associate Director of the Lyric and it’s where his visceral, exciting play “Punk Rock” made its debut. It’s also where Three Kingdoms, Simon’s thriller set across three countries and with a cast from the UK, Germany and Estonia is playing from May 3 to May 19.

The Lyric kindly allowed us to film on the stage in the main auditorium. I can think of no better location to shoot one of Britain’s leading playwrights in conversation with one of our finest actors. On the morning of the shoot Andrew learned he had been nominated for a BAFTA for his role as Moriarty in the BBC’s Sherlock. There was a celebratory feel to the morning with lots of laughs, banter and more than a little truly insightful conversation to thrill all Sea Wall fans. Simon and Andrew basically interviewed each other, with 2 cameras covering the chat (one more than we had for sea Wall). They answered many of the questions submitted by Sea Wallers and the 2 hours or so spent filming felt more like 20 minutes. Wonderful material, coming to this web site very soon.

Sea Wall Fan comments

Just a few of the amazing comments from Sea Wall and Andrew Scott fans

“There are so many things I could say about sea wall. But somehow, I don’t really feel the need to say any of them… except for.. well… everything. Everything- just everything, is sheer, meaningful perfection. Thank-you. Thank-you so bloody much…”

“We just watched Seawall and I am honestly stunned. The presentation is simple but elegant. The writing is beautiful and natural, perfectly matched to the soft, forcefully loving voice telling the story as his own.”

“it was just very moving, the whole way it was portrayed. It was just so beautiful. The way he’s talking, Alex’ voice, the story he’s telling, the way he moves, his face… Everything was just perfect.”

“i’m just so surprised and horrified and empty and sad. and just such good believable acting and jesus. like i need to go find this human being now and make sure he’s okay.”

“A half hour long movie brutally shoved many favourite movies aside and settled comfortably in the hole it created in my stomach. Sea Wall was more real to me than so many conversations with actual people have been”

“I’m just in awe a bit. I hate, at times like this that the term ‘awesome’ has been ruined for its more original meaning and been applied to hotdogs and shoes and hand bags. Awesome is the near perfect word for this film.”

“It is an incredible piece of cinema, and I am, quite possibly, in love with it.

“The writing is impeccable, and the acting is beyond words. Andrew Scott is fantastically talented, and he makes these words, this story, come to life.”

“I just watched Sea Wall, after purchasing it a few days ago. I purchased it as a message: to show support for independent film-making and digital distribution…The only thing I will say is this: Buy this film. Watch this film. Talk about this film. There is something at the heart of this that is so moving, so human, so necessary to discuss, to shake out, to recognize.”

“I was more touched, more moved by those thirty three minutes of uninterrupted speech by one man than I have been by any film I’ve seen. He portrays the most human man I’ve ever seen. It’s almost as if he’s not a character. It seems that Andrew Scott really IS Alex. His emotions. His body language. His voice. All of it. This whatever-it-was was the most beautiful piece of art I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing”

“It’s happy, sad, angsty, mad and the thousand other things life represents. Ultimately it’s not just about Alex, it’s about you. It’s about the possibilities and opportunities. It’s about hope….Everyone needs to watch this…at one point in your life you’ll remember that short film from 2012 and you’ll realize its true meaning”

“God, it was just so…Human. So human…it made me think differently. It made me think of things I hadn’t before. The film will haunt me, and that does not bother me at all.”

“If you watch just one single thing in your entire life, watch Sea Wall.”
