Local filmmaker’s new comedy about hobby horsing


Local filmmaker Marc Coleman has created a new comedy about a middle-aged man seeking redemption through the Finnish adolescent sport of hobby horsing.

“It is essentially dressage and show jumping, but with toy horses. It’s a real sport in Finland!” said Marc, whose new short film is a proof of concept for a feature film that has already been written, but requires funding. The film was shot at Redbridge Drama Centre, Wanstead Youth Centre and in Roding Valley Park.
