Eric Morecambe’s son brings film sunshine for student
A Bucks New University student has worked with Eric Morecambe's son on a 12-minute-long short film due to be shown on Sky TV later this year.
Brad Baraud, who is studying BA (Hons) Film and Television Studies, has worked with Gary Morecambe on the short film, called Ticking, which was filmed entirely on a Samsung Galaxy S2 mobile phone.
Brad went to sixth form with Gary's son, Arthur, and friend Ollie Kennedy in Dorset, which is how the team came together, and they filmed the production either side of Christmas.
The student worked as director of photography on the film, with Ollie taking charge of the sound, stunt arranging, and computer work, as well as composing an original soundtrack. Arthur joined the team in an executive producer’s role.
