Changes in the Marionette Unit world

Hello TMU fans,

So there have been some changes in the world of The Marionette Unit. Firstly you may have noticed the website has changed… a lot! In fact it has been slimmed down. There are numerous reasons for this, but the main reason is because The Marionette Unit is now going to be a Feature Film. Yes our Victorian Sci Fi film is now being made into a full length film coming to a cinema near you.

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, the director Azhur Saleem and I went to Los Angeles for meetings and promotion of our film. We also went ideally to secure funding for the short film. What turned out to be one type of trip, quickly changed into another. Everyone we showed the trailer to, industry members as well, told us this would make a great feature film. So after some discussion between Azhur, Paul and I, we decided to forgot about making a short film and go straight to making it into a feature!

We are now busy writing the feature script in London and organising our next steps in regards to the feature film. One of those steps is related to the website. While we work on the expanded and new story, we decided best to remove all elements which relate to the short film version. The website will return, and it will be better than ever.

If you would like any more information about The Marionette Unit, please feel free to contact me on

Till next time

Happy Filmmaking
