Dark Summer, Charles Teton Director/DOP, in discussion with actors.
What the press say about Charles Teton:
One of the up and coming filmmakers of the next generation.
- BBC 2, Moving Pictures
U.K.’s answer to Robert 'El Mariachi' Rodriguez.
- Screen International
Beautifully shot in Cinemascope, Dark Summer is
unpretentious and uncompromising - Film Review
Truthful and believable - Derek Malcolm
Fresh and sincere - The Independent
A very impressive film - Premiere
Teton is a newcomer of considerable promise who not only has a real eye but is also determined to seek out present realities in an original and daring way. Clearly a filmmaker to look out for - The Guardian
Makes the inane trash usually passed off as boxing drama look like a farce. The film is cliché free and the punches hurt.
- The Guardian, Sport
A highly coherent and controlled film... an impressive debut.
- Sight and Sound
Teton works wonders with his ludicrously low budget.
- The Star
One looks forward to Teton’s next movie.
- Philip French, The Observer
Dark Summer, lead actors, Steve Ako ad Joeline Garner Joel.
Over fifteen years ago I started my professional career by assisting some of the top fashion and society photographers in London and Paris; Albert Watson, Francois Lamy, Steve Silverstein, Marcus Tomlinson, Carol Latimer and Pat Booth, Lady Lowe, the photographer and novelist, to name a few. Five years later I moved to Milan, Italy, and started up on my own as a photographer.
A few tear sheets from Milan, Italy.
Returning to London, I was given a lucky break, to light an independent feature film. From that point on I immersed myself in the art of filmmaking and within a short time had made my first feature film Dark Summer which Mel Gibson's Company Icon picked up for distribution and has since been sold worldwide.

One of my many refugee scenes, thanks to so many to people.
For the last ten years I have been working on my most ambitious project yet, White Light, a feature film of epic proportion, which is now completed and in post production. A true auteur, I write, produce, direct, light and edit my own movies.
