The Sprint King

Short Film

About Project
Written, Produced & Directed by Rascal's Creative Director.
Our latest short film (The Sprint King) has just been completed in association with the Oscar winning Framestore. Based on the gritty true story of Yorkshire jockey Dandy Nicholls and his horse SOBA, revealing a dark side to the sport of kings. Fighting in the arenas of stable boxing and the pressures of abnormal weight loss to defy horses of royalty and prestige. This underdog duo would take the racing world by storm and be crowned The Sprint King.

Feature Film Coming Soon

The film was written, produced and directed by Rascal’s very own creative director and is currently in development as a feature film for cinema release. The project was a labour of love, blood, sweat and tears but has received great reviews and picked up a few awards. Made to a strict budget we hope it’s an example of Rascal’s ability to produce stunning filmic results on even the tightest funds. We love ambitious clients!

Award Winning

The film has been awarded 'BEST LONDON FILMMAKER' at the Wimbledon International Short Film Festival and after being made an official selection at the Leeds International is now entering the BAFTA’s!
