Stroud filmmaker Billy Arthur, who runs Enderley Pictures, has been nominated for two awards by the Royal Television Society Midlands, Breakthrough Talent, and Best Documentary.
Billy grew up in Stroud and went to Marling School: “When I was 16, I co-directed a CBBC documentary called My Life: Blood Sugar Brothers, which went on to be nominated for a BAFTA and gave me my start in the industry. I then worked on numerous projects, from Killing Eve to Missing or Murdered, before starting my own production company, Enderley Pictures, during the pandemic.
“Over the next year, my team and I worked on countless films across documentary and digital, from Green Planet to Sort Your Life Out, and from TOWIE to Springwatch. At the end of last year, we released our first feature, Apple: The Trillion Dollar Betrayal.
“The documentary explores the true cost of Apple’s rise to the top, with scathing investigations revealing factories with suicidal workers, tax avoidance on an enormous scale, and a cult that will defend the company at all costs. Shot around the world, it’s a captivating film that asks big questions about our shared planetary future.”
The film was picked up by Java Films, a Paris-based distributor, and more information on the film can be found here: https://www.enderley.pictures/apple
Billy is still based in Stroud but is currently on ‘secondment’ in Manchester working on his next feature, about fine art’s greatest fraudster.
Winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony at The International Convention Centre, Birmingham, on November 25th.
