Documentary ready for take off

Horsham-based film, Aerotoxic, started filming earlier this month. The feature length documentary launched production with the announcement of plans to aim the project towards the Academy Awards.

Winner of The County Times Best Small Business of the Year Award in 2009 and 2011, Fact Not Fiction Films began the production by filming a number of shots around West Sussex on October 9 and 10.

The organisation has high hopes for the project and have expressed plans for it to be their most successful to date, with Director Tristan Loraine revealing information that the film will contain scenes shot on a number of international locations.

Tristan Loraine said: “This is such an important project. The public deserves to know what is going on in the aviation industry. Aerotoxic will play a big part in revealing a problem that potentially affects anyone who flies.

“We are trying to create a film that portrays the situation in the most powerful way possible.”

Aerotoxic will investigate a airline health and safety problem that the world’s largest flight attendant union, The Association of Flight Attendants, predicted has affected thousands of crew members and passengers over the years, but who may not know it.

Production Team Member, Beth Moran said: “We have got a long journey and a lot of filming ahead of us but we are very prepared.

With the professional team we have and the support people constantly show us, I have no doubts that Aerotoxic will be a huge success.”

Fact Not Fiction Films were also behind the feature film ‘A Dark Reflection’ which premiered at The Capitol theatre in Horsham earlier this year.

Aerotoxic is currently scheduled for completion by December 2016. For more information or if you would like to help support the documentary visit
