Filmmaker Wayne G Saunders has received an award from the Mayor of London for improving the quality of life for Londoners. But it’s the quality and speed of our printing at Solopress.com that saved the day during his recent trip to Africa…
Award-winning filmmaker Wayne G Saunders at BossCrowns Productions (www.bosscrowns.co.uk) is a writer, director and producer who has made many innovative and pioneering short films and TV documentaries. Some of these films have focused on the lifestyles of young people living in Britain, and around the globe, and the challenges they face on a daily basis.
Wayne has proven that you can bring new groundbreaking techniques into filmmaking and has been recognised for his achievements in film. According to the British Film Institute (bfi) book, Teaching Black Cinema, Wayne has “developed an innovative editing style in which layers of images and sounds flow and overlap in a dream like manner”.
Girls & Knives and Youth & Guns, Wayne’s hard-hitting TV documentaries, reached out to over 5 million viewers on ITV. He has also mentored over 4000 young people, and has inspired many to follow their dreams and be achievers. With such a busy schedule, it’s little wonder that Wayne and BossCrowns choose Solopress, the 24-hour turnaround print and design specialists, to take care of their printing.
“I first used Solopress.com because I only had 48 hours to catch a plane to Africa. I needed some brochures printed up for the African Movie Academy Awards,” reveals Wayne G Saunders. “I found Solopress on the Internet and they had good reviews of turning around work within 24 hours. I had my brochures delivered to my doorstep and they looked really good!”
