Local musician, Peter Barron, has seen a film company take an option to the feature the title track from his album, One More Crow as part of the production

Peter, who lives in Coast Road, Pevensey Bay, told Bay Life, “the movie placement finally came up trumps and contracts have been signed”. He added, “there may be plans for a soundtrack”.

The new movie is being produced by LUMINO FILMS, a UK based company that makes “films with social issues that need airing”. Their sister company, SWIPE RIGHT, specialises in psychological horror/thrillers.

Writer/director of the film, Jane Sanger, has won film 15 awards.

The film SWIPERIGHT is described as “a compelling and frightening horror/ thriller based around the dangers of a dating app”.

A trailer from the film is now available.

Filming has finished and the company has now entered into post production. This story they say “will have you on the edge of your seat. Starring Toyah Willcox, Sophie Ward, Jenny Wu”

On the release of his latest album, Retro Activ, in June this year, The Pevensey Bay Journal said “With his heart set firmly in the early seventies, the music of Peter Barron mixes some of the sounds that seem familiar, from his loved Marc Bolan through to Sweet and on to Eddie and the Hot Rods and Graham Parker, but listen carefully to the picture play back. The dystopian world takes you into a kind of cartoon character visual world that is immersive and all his very own.

“Why the work of Peter Barron is not yet to be heard on film soundtracks, video games or as a soundtrack on the playout to a documentary on BBC4 about some aspect of the cultural history of popular music in our country in the second half of the twentieth century, is something of a mystery.

“On this album, In the eclectic mix is pure Peter Barron, a pastiche of styles and a dystopian world in which you can never be sure if his tongue is firmly in his cheek as he growls beside the fine harmonica of Neil Seymour on Boogie Street.

“This is perhaps his most accomplished album release to date.”

A local commentator who has followed his work for a number of years said on hearing the news, “this is not before time, the success with one of his distinctive tracks being optioned for a film is a credit to the work of Peter Barron, and the credit is well overdue”.

The Film SWIPERIGHT is due to be in cinemas in May 2020.
