'In Vino Veritas' First Edit

written by Kim L Wheeler, produced by Flickering Wick Productions


Little did Kim know that by In Vino Veritas becoming one of the 50 chosen scripts to be put forward to producers, that she would become a producer herself. It was more out of a sense of panic and concern, she says, that having gotten this far, the script would become lost in the ether, and not picked up. She therefore formed Flickering Wick Productions in 2017. (Incidentally, she needn’t have worried; the script has also been picked up and shot by a company in Las Vegas!)

After having approached award winning Director, Ben Mole, whom Kim met at the LSF a number of years ago, they both set out to bring together a fabulously talented crew which includes amongst others, Director of Photography Pete Allibone, Editor Alexandra Wheeler (yes, Kim’s daughter) and Manchester By The Sea Composer, John Pickup.

With such a great crew lined up, Kim felt that it was only fair to them to aim high when it came to casting the lead role of John. Through much fundraising, countless hours of research, a small stroke of luck and a gigantic amount of persuasion, Kim was able to secure the talents of John Challis (Boycie from Only Fools and Horses). Mr. Challis charmed both camera and crew alike when we filmed on 8th August, 2017 in Kim’s tiny home hamlet of Neenton, Shropshire, England.

Having been bitten by the filmmaking bug, who knows what lies ahead for Flickering Wick Productions.

Happy Filmmaking!

Producers notes on this edit...

Kim L. Wheeler wrote In Vino Veritas as an entry for Create 50’s The Impact initiative. It tells the story of a pensioner, John, who finds truth and joy through his choice of final beverage, with only seconds to go before the end of the world.

The cut to be uploaded shortly (lucky No. 7) came about after much editing, re-editing, discussions and negotiations between us all, as to how we might be able to cut down version No. 1 from 7 1/2 minutes, to as short as we possibly could. It became obvious that our story had far more to tell than we had anticipated.

The crew are extremely proud of what we have achieved thus far and hope that you enjoy our offering as much as we enjoyed making it.
