‘Prick Thy Neighbour’, a quirky romantic comedy short film written by Lisa Jacobs, has been selected for ‘London Calling’, Film London’s Short Film Fund. Produced by Georgina French of Putney based French Fancy Productions. Onboard to direct is the multi talented British Film, TV & Theatre actress, Tara Fitzgerald ('Game of Thrones', 'Sirens', 'Brassed Off', 'Waking the Dead').

‘London Calling’ is a continuation and expansion of the London Borough Film Fund Challenge, aimed at giving more opportunities to London’s new and emerging film-making teams resident in the capital.

In addition to the award of £4,000, the scheme provides filmmakers with training and mentoring, with support every step of the way. French Fancy Productions has also been awarded a bursary of £1,000 by Four Corners - London's Centre for Film & Photography.

Georgina French told PutneySW15.com:
"We need to spread the word amongst local residents…! On Tuesday 25th February we launched an innovative crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to raise the additional funds that we'll need in order to make the film. There is the opportunity to contribute anything from £10 upwards. In return, we are offering a whole variety of fantastic perks, from signed merchandise, to a VIP day on set, to an invite to the London screening and even lunch with the director Tara Fitzgerald (pictured left). We are also encouraging both those who contribute and those who can’t, to participate in the sharing of the campaign, in order to spread the word."
