Special Thanks

This is a very important section to us as we had so much support from so many people along the way. Without them we wouldn’t have the series that we do. An especially big thanks goes to Nadia Nadif, Mark Brown, Alice Huzar, Ben Cookson, Adam Vincenzini, Sophie Cox and the Cox family.

CAMEOS:
Thank you to all of our friends, family, friends of friends and virtual strangers who came out to be in our series whether we made them sit at a bus stop or dance in a club. A round of applause for Rhys Howell, Sam Mason, Zaid Shoubber, Mr. Shoubber, Jack Barzey, Anna Cole, Chris Jones, Charlotte Winsor, Willard Foxton, Holly Alsop, Ronan Herrington, Mark Brown, Mark Lindow, Jennifer Hardi, and Jon Choo.

LOCATIONS:
Without the kind help of individuals opening their homes and their businesses, we couldn’t have made this film! Please give these businesses lots of your support…

  • Arocaria
    A popular Greek restaurant with an extensive menu and a covered terrace in the heart of Crouch End.

    LVPO offers something all too rare in a London bar these days: a warm, seductive atmosphere, laid-back crowd and excellent service in a spacious setting. Candles, fireplaces, eclectic furniture, snug little corners and a late license six nights a week make LVPO the perfect place to enjoy a night out in Soho.

ADDITIONAL MUSIC:
We’re big music fans so we jumped at the chance to include music from UK artists in Raptured. Do let us know if you want us to include yours in future!
