Red Moon Productions Ltd has produced award-winning films and
videos, including Ashes to Ashes, one of the world's first digital
movies and Britain's first martial arts film.
Conceived in 1993, written in 1994 and released in 1999, Ashes to Ashes is a thriller written and directed by independent filmmaker Wayne Gerard Trotman. It is is characterised by a complex script, unpredictable twists, dark humour and a complete disregard for political correctness.
Ashes to Ashes premiered at the Raindance Film Festival where it was described as ‘Kung fu with an arty London twist’. No wires, CGI, stunt doubles, mats or pads were used in the filming and production of Ashes to Ashes.
The grueling shoot in May 1998, testifies to the sheer energy and fanatical dedication employed in making the film. This energy is apparent in the performance of the ensemble cast, and in the expertly staged and executed fight sequences featuring the skills of several martial arts experts.
