Screen Manchester attend screening of ‘Surprise Baby’

We were delighted to attend a private screening of Zane Igbe’s Surprise Baby.

Zane was a Screen Manchester Trainee who secured a placement with Rope Ladder Fiction on BBC One’s hit series Waterloo Road.

This wonderful short film which Zane wrote & directed was produced by Louisa Rose Mackleston of Northern Fortress Films.

At Screen Manchester we are always so happy to help support new entrants into the Industry and to watch them progress as Zane has is what makes us tick!

These pictures capture this joyful event at Manchester’s SODA (School of Digital Arts) where a post screening Q&A was hosted by the brilliant Professor Kirsty Fairclough.

Huge thanks to SODA and Rope Ladder Fiction for hosting the event!

A wonderful audience gathered which included some stars of Waterloo Road. See anyone you recognise?
