Kerry Skinner and Stewart Alexander are the founder members of Park Bench Pictures and have collaborated on creative projects for over 15 years. Together they have written, directed and produced critically acclaimed stage productions, the award winning feature film Common People, and the Directors UK Challenge ALEXA-winning short, The Bicycle Thief.
Park Bench Pictures is dedicated to promoting diversity and gender-balance on both sides of the camera and through the stories they tell. The gender balance among the Cast & Crew for Common People was already 50/50 when it was produced five years ago, and the story itself was a celebration of diversity. The Production Team for The Bicycle Thief was over 70% female.
Park Bench Pictures is currently seeking potential co-producers and investors for two more feature films based on original completed screenplays, Songs From A Gilded Cage and Body Checks. Both have the potential to outstrip the success of Common People by attracting high profile casts and exploiting the unique market appeal that is inherent to their settings.
