"Locked Door Productions" is made up of two guys from Dartford, Kent: Dominic Dove and Jacob Friett. With an 11-day age difference and a lifetime (more or less) of memories, the guys are like distant-rarely-see-each-other-but-still-close brothers. With one sensible, video-tuned penniless bum, and one maniacal, audio-tuned, entrepreneur wonder, the two make up the perfect team, and it is no wonder that LDP is still around after five years. At least in their minds...
Let me make this clear: I am only on the left hand side for alphabetical reasons. And age. It's nothing personal, except I do add more to the site and therefore can take some self-promoting liberties. Anyway, here's what I wrote for the official leaflet:
Hi, I'm Dom and, like Jacob, have always been a part of LDP, though more recently than before. I love filming, editing especially, and have really taken to producing short (but often time-consuming) films that give challenging production obstacles. I also enjoy acting, though prefer to have other people in front of my camera, personally....
(It should be noted that since this was written, I killed myself off in Warlock Games 2. Though you probably won't know that yet.)
Dom has recently completed his first three 'proper' short films, the "Warlock Games" saga, starring D'Arcy Molyneux and Tom Ritchie. The first was released to positive feedback, and things look good on the horizon for parts 2 and 3.
Like Jacob, he loves live events, having spent a week on an AV team with him at the New Wine Summer Conference 2008, and running their own AV team at a different summer event for the last few years.
Hi, I'm Jacob. I've always been involved in LDP in one way or another since the beginning. I am a noise boy by nature and a noise boy by heart. I love sound and music. All types of music...
