What we’re all about and where we came from
Let us introduce ourselves
Established in 2010 Kent Independent Film is a small team of four experienced and dedicated filmmakers based in Kent in the United Kingdom, with the aim of creating low budget, high production short and feature narrative films of varied genres. We have a special interest in creating a unique brand of 80s inspired horror films made using practical effects.
Steve founded Kent Independent Film in 2010. He has had an interest in acting since childhood and has taken part in several feature films as an extra. It was during this time Steve’s passion for being behind the camera began. He has written several scripts and his debut feature film Christmas Slay was released onto Amazon Prime. When not working on films Steve can be found flexing in front of mirrors.
Gary has 25 years experience in television, film, radio and events as a director, producer, camera operator, editor, presenter and host. He co-produced the award-winning TV show ‘In Focus’ first broadcast back in the mid-2000s in addition to many other TV shows. Since joining Kent Independent Film in 2013 he has undertaken many roles but he is perhaps most recognised for his coffee-making skills. He is also Managing Director of TwentyThree Studios.
