SILVER screen names and soap stars worked alongside budding actors from Slough for a new feature film.

The romantic comedy called Little English, stars actors including Nikki Patel, who played Amber Kalirai in Coronation Street, Ameet Chana who played Adi Ferreira in Eastenders and Goldy Notay, who recently starred in Ackley Bridge after playing the lead role in Gurinder Chadha's It's a Wonderful Afterlife.

Rameet Rauli, plays the lead role as Simmy in the Slough feature film. She is best known for her role as Anya Patel in Nickelodeon’s popular teen series Ride (2018) and she has also appeared in Call the Midwife in 2017.

The feature film has finished the main shoot and producers have started editing but the production company has launched a fundraising bid looking for Associate Producers to help finalise the film.

The not-for-profit Slough company secured funds to produce the film and hire 20 under-represented creatives of all ages to gain their first credit on a feature film.

Dominique Unsworth, producer, said: “We’ve been making content for more than 20 years and many of our alumni have gone off to work for the likes of Netflix, Disney and Pinewood Studios.

"With new studios launching in Berkshire and existing studios expanding in Buckinghamshire, we’re developing an essential diverse talent pipeline from the grass-roots up.”

So far, £400,000 has already been provided by Unltd, the Rothschild Foundation, ZX Records and a number of smaller funders and partners to help with the film.

But £45,000 is still needed to hire equipment, transport, accommodation, location fees, props, make-up, music licenses, grading, online editing, subtitling, mixing and mastering the film.

So far, the crowdfunding page has reached £2,520.

Pravesh Kumar, Writer and Director, said: “Films like this are so rare! The community has already given us so much love and support to get us to here. We just need that extra little push to get the project over the line and deliver a film that we can all be proud to say is truly diverse and ‘made in Berkshire’.”
