Executive Producer's notes
A Plaster, a Paper and a Cheese & Pickle Sandwich is the first of what we hope will be many collaborations with fresh young talent.

We got to know director Sheena Holliday's work when she approached us for some work experience whilst winding up her film studies, on leaving university she put together a small production team in York called Crestfallen Productions with close friend Adam Greenwood, and together they came up with an idea for a short that had that rare quality of being something a little different.

We offered to help find them cast, crew and kit, they shot and cut the film, and now we're distributing it to festivals. We couldn't be happier with the results; a unique and engaging short that veers from black as film noir comedy to Hitchcockian inspired psychological thriller and look forward to introducing Crestfallen's fresh film vision to the world.

Sheena Holliday, Director/Writer/Co-Producer
Sheena lives in East Yorkshire where she freelances as a Drama/Film Community Artist. She started making short films with friends at 16 and won an award at Hull Screen 2000 with a doc about her band Steela. A final university project formed the basis of Crestfallen Productions as she and Adam teamed up with Emma to shoot Like a Charm.

Adam Greenwood, Editor/Writer/Co-Producer
Adam lives in York and works at the local arthouse cinema. Plaster is his first short film since university and he hopes to make many more. He established Crestfallen Productions with Sheena on a day trip to Bridlington whilst studying together at university and after working together on a Blair Witch homage while on work experience in 2003.

Emma Clover, Producer
Emma lives miles away from anybody in Lincolnshire. She graduated from uni in York with Adam and Sheena two years ago. This is her first short film project since finishing uni and will hopefully be the first of many with Crestfallen Productions. Emma is now biding her time working in a bank and waiting for the next big thing.

Steve Joiner, Murphy
Steve trained at East 15 Acting school, performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in The Interview; winner of the Sunday Times Student playwright award. He has worked the fringe circuit in London and various short films. He is currently resting as a truancy officer hoping to mentor one of many disaffected kids into the next James Dean.

Phillip Collins, Frank Phil does not live in Switzerland and plays saxophone, not drums. He doesn't sing either, much to the relief of family and friends. Since retiring from teaching he trained in acting at Newcastle College and Northumbria University and now does occasional small parts in short films and lengthier bits on stage at the People's Theatre in Newcastle upon Tyne.
