FIVE BY FIVE (2017)
Five Characters. Five Writers. One Story.
Five by Five is a series of five short films that follow five different characters across London and challenge identity. It was produced by Idris Elba's Green Door Pictures with BBC Drama. It stars Idris Elba alongside upcoming talent including Georgina Campbell (BAFTA-winner Murdered by Boyfriend, Broadchurch), Ruth Madeley (BAFA Breakthrough Brit), Mawaan Rizwan (Carnage, BBC), Michael Ajao (Cuffs, Attack the Block), Ben Tavassoli (New Blood) and Sope Dirisu (Humans, Screen International Star of Tomorrow). It was shot by Ruairi O'Brien (The Fall) and features a score by Patrick Jonsson (composer of the Oscar-winning The White Helmets).
Kate Herron directed every single episode of the series and is the first director handpicked by Idris to direct a Narrative Fiction project for his production company.
"I was very impressed with director Kate Herron; She was great at working with actors. Bringing on a talented and up-coming director as important for the project, and it was a challenging ask - to helm a series made up of five very different episodes using multiple actors and locations. But her energy, passion and ambition - and that of everybody else involved in Five by Five - has paid off" - IDRIS ELBA (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF FIVE BY FIVE).
