NEWS (JULY 2002)

29 - 07 - 02

Take a look at the ever wonderful Scottish TV site, news about showing times in Scotland for Sniper470. They have this information |link| -

Sniper 470 - Monday 28 October 11pm
Starring Billy Boyd and Carmen Pieraccini

A Brassneck Films production
Writer / director Paul Holmes, produced by Michael Hines

Sniper 470 is perhaps the most ambitious project to date, and is New Found Land's first ever attempt at science fiction. Sniper 470 is the story of a loan gunner isolated in outer space, waiting to attack the next enemy convoy.

The Gunner (Billy Boyd) is a solitary figure, alone and encapsulated inside a massive gun. For him time and space is everything, his symbiotic relationship with the gun is the only thing that allows him to maintain any semblance of sanity.

Fate like time itself can be cruel. After lengthy periods of isolation the last thing you want is an univited guest.

Billy's Official site have also denied rumors of Billy appearing at another convention in the USA. Check the news fader on the Official forum for details.
