The father of a boy born 16 weeks too early in 2005, has begun creating a film about the miracle of his boys survival.
As Alan looked back over his sons survival story, he decided to begin developing the tale into a screenplay; a process which he is still working on today. “As a father, to hear your child only has a 40 per cent chance of survival is a horrific experience. I’d made a number of short films before and having experienced something as amazing as we did, I decided it would be a great idea for a film” he said.
Brit Movie 24weekers is currently casting for its major roles and has secured a spot for Billy Elliot star Stuart Wells.
As a result, 24weekers received media attention and, over the following four months, was featured in local medial, radio and on national television.
