Ever fancied making your own film in five days? Get a beginner’s guide to guerrilla film-making from British screen heroes Shane Meadows and Mark Herbert.

Returning to their lo-fi roots with new film Le Donk & Scor-Ayz-Ee, director Shane Meadows and producer Mark Herbert take time out of their schedule for the Five Day Features special event.

With their mantra ‘whatever your budget, five days is optimum’, Meadows and Herbert unveil the secrets behind successful film-making when you're tight for time and strapped for cash.

With Brit-flicks This Is England and Dead Man’s Shoes (EIFF 2004) under their belts, faux-rockumentary Le Donk & Scor-Ayz-Ee is a refreshing return to the guerrilla for these two moviemaking heavyweights.

Featuring the sublime Paddy Considine as rock roadie Le Donk, the film follows his attempts to get Nottingham based MC Scor-Ayz-Ee into the charts.

Watch out for a cheeky appearance from the Arctic Monkeys, proving even some of the UK’s biggest music talent isn’t immune to the lure of low budget movies.

Check out the Five Day Features special event on Wed 24 June, 15:00 Cineworld
