Art is expression and expression is life.
The urge to create runs through all.
Not only are Tarquin Jones passionate about property investment, but we also promote the arts through theatre and film production funding.
Inspire is our new initiative designed to bring ideas into full theatre and film productions which otherwise would not have been conceived, due to a lack of funding.
From a teenager fantasising of performing a sold-out concert at Royal Albert Hall, to a thirty-something aspiring writer dreaming of their words coming alive in cinemas across the country, each and every one of us has the desire to achieve something in life. The desire to share your passion with the world, is hard-wired in the creative mind’s DNA, is as vital as breathing is.
Unfortunately, over the last ten years the amount of work being shown, specifically in London’s West End and off West End has decreased significantly due to funding, while the passion has only increased.
At Tarquin Jones, we believe the creative arts is what makes a society whole and rich with culture. At times of hardship, it’s at the core of a community to keep moving through to better days. To support the creative arts in the UK, we are introducing, Inspire, our initiative to realise the great work of aspiring dramatists, lacking financial resources.
We are interested in funding innovative theatre and film to inspire a generation. If you have a play, musical, tv script or screenplay you are interested in seeing produced we would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Note: We partner with individuals, theatre companies and film production companies.
Tarquin Jones have recently contributed towards the upcoming film ‘Blank Shores’, written and directed by Alex Kyrou. The independent film explores themes such as child loss and the stigma around mental health for men. Its screenplay received the Grand Prize in the Oscar/BAFTA affiliated Rhode Island International Screenplay competition.
Arriving distressed at her local police station, Emily files a missing person’s report for her partner Connor, who has been missing for days. Faced with the realisation that she is partially responsible for his disappearance, Emily sets out on her own investigative journey. Later discovering a hidden warehouse, Emily finds Connor connected to a system of unregulated equipment, designed and operated by Lenny. Confused – and unable to speak with Connor directly – Emily connects to his mind, where she is transported to a desolate landscape. But before she can reconnect with her partner and find the answers she’s looking for, she must traverse the physical barrier between them.
Blank Shores is a journey of a woman searching for her missing partner, and the subsequent reconnection in his subconscious.
The production company has teamed up with the charities CALM and Sands to raise awareness of the underlying themes explored in the film. They both do inspiring work raising much-needed awareness and funding research.
