Director, Charles Teton, on his second feature film White Light.
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 was my first feature film as Writer, Producer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor. The film was released theatrically by Mel Gibson's Icon Entertainment to critical acclaim and has been sold worldwide. My second feature film, White Light, a truly massive production with over eight hundred extras, shooting in multiple locations with Soviet tanks and helicopters, took over six years to film.
I have been Associate Producer on multiple films, including those staring Billy Connolly and Ian Dury, as well as Second Unit Director/Cinematographer and Director of Photography on music videos, including Chris Cunningham's first promo. My company also theatrically distributed two feature films in the United Kingdom, which is a massive feat in itself going up against the major distributors.
I am currently woking on my own projects and open to working other peoples projects, large or small, whether it is feature film, commercials, public relations, band promos or personal projects. Please feel free to contact me through the site's contact page for more information.
