Dreams of a Life; a new Film 4 Feature

ThinkSync has been appointed music supervisor for award winning filmmaker Carol Morley’s new project for Film Four.

Entitled Dreams of a Life, it tells the heartbreaking tale of Joyce Vincent, a woman found dead in her bedsit. Undiscovered for an estimated three years, she was found with the television still on and Christmas presents waiting to be wrapped. Joyce is played by celebrated actor Zawa Ashton, recently picked by Screen International as one of their ‘Stars of Tomorrow’.

The documentary is funded by Film 4, Channel 4, the UK Film Council and the Irish Film Board.

Casting agent is Nina Gold (Nowhere Boy, Hot Fuzz) and editor is Chris Wyatt (‘This Is England’). Composer is Barry Adamson (The Beach, Natural Born Killers). The film will be distributed in UK/Eire via Dogwoof Films (Age Of Stupid, Food Incorporated).
