A FILM edited by a Bradwell-born man had its premiere screening in London's Leicester Square and is receiving enthusiastic reviews from critics.

Swanking along the red carpet amid as host of household names, was Bafta nominated Mark Everson, 34, whose involvement in television's cult comedy The Mighty Boosh led to him working on his first full-length feature film.

Bunny and the Bull, which has received a five star rating from The Times and four stars from Empire comes from the pen of Boosh director Paul King and is described as a road movie set entirely in a flat.

Filmed in Nottingham on a £1m shoestring budget, the film reprised techniques outmoded by computer graphics to zip through the memories of the main character, Bunny.

Mr Everson, a former Lynn Grove High School pupil, spent four and a half months editing the film and said he was “incredibly proud” of final result.

“Lots of people have confused it with being The Mighty Boosh the Movie which it is not. Paul King has written it and it is very surreal and it is the closest thing you could get to a movie of the Boosh but there is more of an emotional side to it which you need if it is going to be a bit more than an hour and a half.

“It had it's world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and it went down really well there. Some people who want to see The Mighty Boosh the Movie might be disappointed but a lot of people say they are not fans but enjoyed the movie.”

Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, the stars of the Boosh, have cameo roles and all the team is described as “incredibly nice, friendly and obviously incredibly talented.”

Mr Everson's work on Bunny and the Bull also follows a stint with Julian Barratt cutting his short film called about a Punch and Judy man called Curtains, which was shot in Yarmouth.

He expects to return home to Long Lane for Christmas with his parents Margaret and John Everson.

The film was completed in January this year and is due for release to around 40 art house cinemas on November 27.
