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.
Every person has the desire to achieve something, to be something or to want something. The presence of desire to attain an end is as natural as a plant needing water. It is the urge of life within us to grow. Desire is therefore unfulfilled expression.
There are so many worthwhile projects and charities that embody the sentiment that we believe in, but we feel there is no better to personify this than the creative arts.
We have all experienced the joys of the human heart when we see our child perform in their first school play. We have been touched by beautiful theatre and film productions that stir human emotions and reach out to the depths of our souls.
A rich society is one which conveys the whole of life, and so we play our part to promote this. Inspire, our initiative is aimed at those who have conceived a great idea but lack the financial resources to translate that to a wider audience.
If you feel that this is you, then we would like to hear from you. We partner with individuals or theatre and film production companies, regardless of their size.
Tarquin Jones have recently contributed towards the upcoming film ‘Blank Shores’. 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.
