Aaron Dunleavy may be a young cat in the big pond (as he’s still a student in university), but his first piece of work “Throw Me To The Dogs” has placed him in the next big league of the budding filmmakers hailing from the UK.
With 9 awards, a praise from UK’s film mogul Danny Boyle, getting featured in the Guardian as well as being nominated this year at the BFI Future Film Festival, Dunleavy has placed the Midlands on the map, with this industrial realist masterpiece. To even top off his success with this debut, the film was premiered at the Blackburn VUE.
“Throw Me To The Dogs” shows Dunleavy versatile ability, whilst still producing quality material. The cast were inexperienced and among the local community of Blackburn on a small budget; following a teenage boy who tries to retrieves himself from the outside world.
Working alongside Dunleavy was Joseph Ollman.
Expect Dunleavy to win a few BAFTAs and Oscars in the years to come.
