Bootleg Films

We make it and we make it strong.

Our ambition is simple. To develop and produce the finest film hooch this industry has seen for a long time. 

Our history is years of making the finest advertising brews, brews that you would never know we made. In a complicated world why make things even more complicated. Bootleg Films make it to order.

 

  CALLE ÅSTRAND   REMORSELESSLY DRY WITH SHARP EDGES

CALLE ÅSTRAND REMORSELESSLY DRY WITH SHARP EDGES

Surreal, subtle, sublime and Swedish.  Calle Åstrand comes from the homeland of TV commercial comedy.  His background in long brews has been filtered and fermented and is now the 'Absolut' article.

  JOHN GRAMMATICO     DASHINGLY SUAVE WITH A SMOOTH AFTERTASTE

JOHN GRAMMATICO DASHINGLY SUAVE WITH A SMOOTH AFTERTASTE

With a name like an anagram of ‘anagram’ this man knows how to shoot from the hipflask. Quick witted and as sharp as a whip he’ll have you slugging his style of Bourbon like you’d been gifted the keys of the distillery. John is so mysterious we had to have a film made just to explain this enigmatic, almost mythical shooting machine of a man.


  TIM KIRKBY     HE'S BEEN MAKING FOLK LAUGH SINCE 1922

TIM KIRKBY HE'S BEEN MAKING FOLK LAUGH SINCE 1922

The British comedy scene has been getting drunk on Tim’s hooch these past couple of years. With 'Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle' being given a BAFTA on top of many British Comedy awards for previous brews including the now classic 'Look Around You'. Not forgetting piloting the hugely successful 'Fleabag'. Oh and helming a few episodes of of the EMMY winning ‘VEEP’.

 


  TIMOTHY KENDALL   HE'S FRUITY AND DANGEROUS TO KNOW

TIMOTHY KENDALL HE'S FRUITY AND DANGEROUS TO KNOW

The legend that is higher-brow. Sharp shooting and sharp witted he’s the ‘go to’ bounty hunter of this generation. Short form or long form this boy has form.  He makes it look easy, some say too easy.


  EUGENIO RECUENCO   FINE PURVEYOR OF THE FEMALE FORM

EUGENIO RECUENCO FINE PURVEYOR OF THE FEMALE FORM

A unique blend of visual velvet, oozing style from every pore. A required taste for fashion aficionado’s and surprisingly undiscovered on these shores. He learnt his craft as a photographer and is regarded as one of Europe’s masters of the lens. Sumptuous pictures flow from the screen. The man has high standards and never gives away his secret recipe. A legend in the making.


  LAURENCE THRUSH   THIS FELLA WON'T SING LIKE A CANARY

LAURENCE THRUSH THIS FELLA WON'T SING LIKE A CANARY

Give him a grain of a script and this songbird will turn it in to a full field of the finest barley. He has enough recipes to have you sobbing with emotion or punching the air with elation. Some say he just gets ‘em drunk, others say he’s totally talented.


  JEREMY CHARBIT   A RARE SINGLE BARREL MALT WITH FRUITY NOTES

JEREMY CHARBIT A RARE SINGLE BARREL MALT WITH FRUITY NOTES

From the city that made absinthe the drink of the artiste – Paris. Absinthe has often been portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug. Jeremy is absinthe personified, engaging, stylish and unnaturally friendly, prohibitionists beware.


  NICK ESDAILE     A FRESH NEW BLEND OF MOONSHINE

NICK ESDAILE A FRESH NEW BLEND OF MOONSHINE

He’s brainy. He’s pleasant. He has a bag of ingredients from directing to editing and has the deft touch and the guile to turn your milk stout in to a Krug.


  JON STEVENS     A FULL-BODIED MALT WITH A WHIFF OF PEAT

JON STEVENS A FULL-BODIED MALT WITH A WHIFF OF PEAT

Jon’s isn’t one for sitting on a place where the moon doesn’t shine. Creating stunning films with style and flare that few can replicate. His pedigree is high, having worked as Creative Director at Discovery and Channel Four he honed his craft. Picking up D&AD and Promax awards along the way Jon has proved to be no thin skin. Jon’s hooch can be enjoyed around a campfire in far off remote territories or equally sipped in a hidden corner of fashionable speakeasies around town.
