Right Arm Productions, set up by documentary and film-maker Asta Philpot, has been appointed the official film-maker for UK leasing business Kennet.
The tie-in will mean the ongoing production of customer testimonials and films for Kennet’s YouTube channel, corporate presentations and exhibitions, while Kennet supply asset finance for the studio’s film equipment.
Asta co-wrote the award-winning motion picture "Come as You Are" (or "Hasta La Vista"), based on his real-life experiences, which has been shown globally. The autobiographical film picked up several awards, including the "Grand Prix des Amériques" at the international movie festival in Montréal, and the People’s Choice Award for Best European Film in 2012.
"Come As You Are" is due for a Hollywood remake later this year, with a Dutch version due for imminent release in April. In addition, Asta frequently appears on TV, radio and in the press and took part in the BBC Documentary One Life series "For One Night Only".
Philpot said "We are delighted to be working closely with Kennet Equipment Leasing; they have been majorly supportive of our expansion, providing the finance for us to get the kit we needed to take our film business even further. This tie-in will no doubt prove a long and fruitful collaboration for both Right Arm Productions and Kennet."
