“CONCRETE PLANS IS A DARK, COEN-ESQUE THRILLER IN WHICH ONE BAD ACTION QUICKLY LEADS TO ANOTHER, AND EVERYONE GETS DRAWN INTO A DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF VENALITY AND VICIOUSNESS.”
“BRUTAL, BLOODY AND UNNERVING.”
– STARBURST MAGAZINE
“A STRONG, DARK, AND GRITTY HORROR.”
“ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING BRITISH THRILLERS IN YEARS.”
– THE HOLLYWOOD NEWS
High in the remote Welsh mountains, five builders are brought together to renovate a sprawling old farmhouse. Housed in moldy portacabins, tensions soon simmer between the men and the self-entitled aristocratic homeowner, as well as amongst the rag tag group of men themselves. World-weary old timer Dave and kindly Foreman Bob try to keep the peace. But his nephew Steve falls under the malign influence of bigot Jim, the pair taking a dislike to Viktor, a Ukrainian laborer. As the weather closes in and payments are late, tempers fray. Blood is spilled. As the blue-collar men are confronted with an increasingly dark spiral of moral choices, Jim makes an astonishing proposition.
ABOUT PAUL HARTNOLL
Paul Hartnoll is a British writer, producer and composer of music, widely recognized for his pioneering work with Orbital, the band he formed and which toured extensively and released eight albums between 1990 and 2012.
Known for their innovations in electronic music, Orbital were equally famed for their blend of visual presentation and live performance – an approach born of the same audio-visual sensibility that informs Paul’s work to this day.
Though primarily associated with electronic music, Paul’s stated and audible influences have always leant towards to the cinematic, with frequent nods to John Barry and Ennio Morricone via the machine led sensibilities of Kraftwerk and the upstart instincts of do-it-yourself punk.
Whilst Orbital’s music has been licensed to feature films including Hackers, Mortal Kombat, and Mean Girls, the band has also scored and composed new material for movies and television including Event Horizon, The Saint, The Beach, xXx, and Pusher.
In 2007 Paul wrote and arranged an album with full orchestra and choir, “The Ideal Condition”. 2015 saw the release of an eponymous album from his new band “8:58”, which features appearances from Cillian Murphy, Robert Smith, and Ed Harcourt, among other artists.
As a solo composer he has written music for commercial campaigns, and clients include Volkswagen, Ranger Rover, Rolex, Ralph Lauren, and the NSPCC. Most recently Paul scored Season Two of the BBC.
