Bale is the story of three young boys and four teenagers in the British countryside. Touching on themes of friendship, desertion, misunderstanding.  A chain of events leads uncontrollably to a terrifying outcome…
BALE is written and directed by Al Mackay, and produced in association with Wellington Films (London to BrightonBetter Things). This was my first film with the brilliantly talented Al Mackay and despite the incredible run of bad luck with the torrential rain and deadly exploding hay stack it was a very enjoyable shoot in the British countryside. The film was picked up Future shorts and received completion funding from the British Film Council and since being uploaded to youtube has had 163000 hits.
