A young Englishman arrives in a remote, run-down Spanish village and has to reform their band – before they find out that it was his dad who ruined the village in the first place.
SOLO! is a low budget, but wildly ambitious, joyful feature film, in English, with lots of music, filmed in the delightful and remote Spanish mountain village of Barx.
Winner of Best Film at the Madrid International, Orlando, North Europe, Bristol and Fusion International Film Festivals.
It is the first feature from Dudley Dog Films Ltd, and the first by award-winning director Nic Cornwall, but not for his DoP, the highly experienced Alex Metcalfe. Our Musical Director is the prodigious talent Joe Rose.
We are humbled by the generosity and commitment of all our extraordinary crew - including the thirteen Spanish students who, as trainees, shadowed our UK Heads of Department. The project also enjoys the enthusiastic support of the local brass band (sixty strong!); a local folk group; various independent musicians; the Mayor of the village; plus lots of passion and energy and interest from the local Barxeros, many of whom appear as extras and supporting actors.
SOLO! is ONCE in the sun, and with a happy ending; MAMMA MIA on a tiny scale; with elements of THE FULL MONTY, THE COMMITMENTS, STEP UP, PITCH PERFECT, and BRASSED OFF. If you liked LA LA LAND, you'll LOVE SOLO!
It’s an upbeat, PG, romantic comedy musical. It's hard not to fall in love in the sun!
