Tension | Release

In June 2018, property developer Urban&Civic approached Neotists to provide a workshop as part of an outdoor cinema event at Alconbury Weald, a large development of 6,500 homes that is currently under construction just north of Huntingdon. The project became a joint venture between Urban&Civic, Neotists and St Neots Film Festival, with festival organisers Ben Pitt and Melina La Firenze creating a pop-up studio and inviting people attending the outdoor cinema event to star in a short film called Tension | Release. It was edited in record time and premiered on the same day, just before the feature film screening.
