Without Stephen Woolley and Palace Pictures, Sam Raimi would have no career. While every distributor in the world passed on The Evil Dead, Stephen Woolley saw what the rest of us saw – originality, talent and delirious entertainment.  Released by Woolley and his team, backed up by world class promotion and marketing, The Evil Dead became a smash hit in the UK, which then catalysed the same in the US – and Raimi was suddenly a player.

Woolley has a knack for success and spotting talent early too… Check out his abridged filmography as producer / exec producer…

Mona Lisa, Scandal, Interview with the Vampire, The Crying Game (Oscar), The Company of Wolves, Made in Dagenham, Byzantium, Carol, Their Finest… and about fifty more films.

Woolley is the undisputed expert in elevating low budget filmmakers and this promises to be an exciting, against-all-odds and subversive session.
