Name: Oliver Chater, Director

Film Name:  The Highwayman

Length of film:  9 mins

Genre:  Period Drama

A period drama adaptation of Alfred Noyes’ 1906 poem by the same name. The Highwayman is a tragic love story, set in the Georgian period, revolving around three central characters: Bess, the landlord’s daughter, the daring Highwayman, and Tim - the Ostler (stable boy).

I was inspired to make this film due to my love of classic romantic dramas combined with the daring nature of the Georgian era.
