Maverick film maker Marc Price, director of the £45/$70 zombie film COLIN, has finished work on his second feature film MAGPIE. After the success of COLIN, Price was approached with the scripts for numerous films including the Halle Berry shark movie DARK TIDE, but opted to make a shark movie in his own unique style. Very different from COLIN, MAGPIE is a dark relationship drama with significantly higher production value.
Financed by Emmerdale actor Dominic Brunt, it tells the tragic story of a negligent young father who returns home for his 9-year-old, shark-obsessed son’s funeral. An unwelcome guest, he steals the coffin and finds himself on the road with the child’s mother and two friends.
Magpie was shot on location in London, Cornwall and Price’s native Swansea. Without a script, Price instead opted to workshop scenes with the actors based on a carefully designed structure. What follows is a journey with no destination, just a desperate desire not to return.
