Being Sold


An independently funded movie, ‘Being Sold’ was the idea of award winning director Phil Hawkins. Brilliantly written by Aidan Magrath, it’s a comedy that tells the story of John Foster who ‘manages’ to put himself up for sale on an auction site. The film follows the mayhem that descends upon him, his best mate and his family as the moments of the auction tick away. Produced by Phil, Mercedes Crescenti, Ben Swift and DoP Mike Costelloe and largely completed in just 2 days Being Sold is amazing achievement by all involved.

The film’s poster elements were also shot on the day by Justin and comped by Dinosaur Manchester. Big Shed produced the ‘souvenir’ composite prints, a great piece of memorabilia to hang on the wall.
