The Company's next collaboration was with the up and coming German director Till Kleinert who shot his short film Boys Village at St Athan Boys' Village in West Aberthaw in the Vale of Glamorgan. Recently, the Company has just completed work on Little Man a co-production between the UK, US, and Israel, which was co-written and directed by the award winning filmmaker Eldar Rapaport and was adapted from a short story by Etgar Keret.
