Break was produced by Scanner-Rhodes Productions, a UK feature film production company active in both domestic and international markets.
Gravity Media was commissioned to support post-production on the feature, supplying multiple Avid Media Composer suites networked to a central Avid Nexis storage solution.
We hosted the Break production team at our multi-functional post-production facility Gravity House, located on Frith Street in London’s Soho. This dedicated post-production facility boasts 40 offline rooms that can be dressed for any film, TV or photographic need, from editing to production meetings to private screenings.
Released in July 2020, Break is a UK thriller filmed in locations across the UK and in China, starring Rutger Hauer in his last screen role. The story centres on Spencer Pryde (Sam Gittins), a gifted snooker player who’s wasting his talents, choosing instead to indulge in petty crime with his friends, but when things begin spiralling out of control, he seeks sanctuary in the one place he feels safe – the local snooker hall. While there, Pryde is presented with an opportunity to turn his life around after a chance encounter with a Chinese stranger named Qiang (David Yip).
Break also stars Jamie Foreman and Luke Mably in key roles, and features appearances by British snooker star Jack Lisowski, Chinese sensation Liang Wenbo and World Snooker Champion Ken Doherty.
The film was made with the support of World Snooker and Matchroom, and premiered in London.
