A new film ‘Broken Promises’ based on a short story by Avril Saunders

Paul Burton Films are currently in pre-production with a new short drama film which is being made in association with Avril Dalziel Saunders*.

Before she was married, Jenny Curtis nursed her widowed mother for several years after she was left paralysed and speechless from a stroke. In Broken Promises, Chloe Richards recalls the twists and turns of fate that Jenny faced in the year following the death of her mother; and how her attempts to rebuild her life were thwarted when she met her then future husband, Harry Curtis.

With a screenplay by Paul Burton - who is also set to produce and direct the film - Broken Promises is based on a short story by author, Avril Dalziel Saunders. The film is set to be made at Elstree Studios in north London and on location nearby in February 2012.

The completed film will then be broadcast later this year as part of a short film strand on the following TV channels: Information TV (Sky 231), Information TV + 1 (Sky 189) and Showcase TV 2 (Sky 203).

DVD’s of ‘Broken Promises’ can be ordered direct from Paul Burton Films

Profits from the sales of the DVD’s from ‘Broken Promises’ will be donated to ‘Breast Cancer Care’ and ‘McMillan Nurses’


*Avril Saunders is the author of 'Chasin’ That Carrot' and soon to be released book 'Mammograms Save Lives', due out in February 2012.
