New movie to be filmed in Brixton

honeytrapA new film set in Brixton has kicked off its Crowdfunding campaign ahead of filming in August, with nearly £10,000 raised for the film HONEYTRAP after just three days. Set in Brixton and inspired by true events, HONEYTRAP is an urban drama seen from a girl’s point of view. Yearning for love and status, fifteen-year-old Layla is swept into a whirlwind romance with self-styled gang leader/rapper Troy – and then spat out the other side. Desperate to win Troy back, Layla offers to set up the boy who’s in love with her to be killed…

Writer and director Rebecca Johnson has been making short films with young people in Brixton for the last ten years through her not-for-profit company Fierce Productions and she was named one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ in 2009.
