WINAIR flies high in new Antiguan movie
ST. JOHNS, Antigua (May 17, 2010) – “They gave us wings!” says Mitzi Allen, producer of THE SKIN about Windward Islands Airways (WINAIR) involvement in their latest movie due out this summer.
During the film’s production last June, WINAIR carried the lead actors, production crew and equipment to Barbuda for some on location shooting.
“Our partnership with WINAIR was a crucial part of the film production. The airline transported the cast, crew and equipment to Barbuda where we spent two days shooting several scenes. There were 12 of us on the aircraft. It was an adventure for the US crew who I think up until that point had never been on a small plane,” explained Mitzi Allen.
Schena Drew, WINAIR’s Station Manager for Antigua, Barbuda and Montserrat said “Winair is very pleased to be associated with the production of THE SKIN by HAMAfilms. This was an ultimate opportunity for us to transport the production crew and equipment to our sister island Barbuda, one of our newest additions to our routes.”
The movie, which stars Jamaican film star Carl Bradshaw, Jeff Stewart of The Bill and Peter Williams, along with Antiguan leads Brent Simon and Aisha Ralph is the fourth feature film for the husband and wife duo behind HAMAfilms Antigua, Howard and Mitzi Allen.
THE SKIN, which was written and directed by Howard Allen, tells the story of a young couple who discover an ancient artifact which changes their lives and unleashes a soucayant.
