Cardiff Met staff member Keri Collins will see his feature film 'Convenience' roll out in cinemas this weekend.
Keri juggles his job in Cardiff Met's print studio with his film making career and has already seen great success with this particular movie after picking up a 'BAFTA Cymru Breakthrough Award' in October 2014.
Keri saved up all of his annual leave from his job at Cardiff Met and shot the film in Swansea over the course of four weeks in the summer, with a budget of just £80,000.
'Convenience' premiered at the Raindance Film Festival 2013 and was screened at a sell-out event at the Apollo Cinema, Piccadilly Circus. The film recently had a number of 4 star reviews - including from EMPIRE magazine – THE biggest film mag in the UK.
Keri said: "Convenience is a comedy about two guys who try to rob a petrol station, but they're so useless they end up working there all night! We produced the film on a very low budget, relative to the industry, and I'm delighted that we have received such recognition for all of the hard work that has gone into this."
'Convenience' will be showing in Showcase Cinemas around the country from October 4th (locally in in Nantgarw and Bristol). A special BAFTA Cymru screening will also take place at Chapter Arts in Canton on Oct 7th.
The film is available on iTunes from October 5th: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/movie/convenience-2015/id1043238132 and on DVD from Amazon and various supermarkets.
