Written by Tommy Draper, Directed by Tom Wadlow, Shelf Stackers is the first UK comedy to have been produced by Light Films to date. The film follows several diverse characters and watches their lives unfold during the graveyard shift at a mini-supermarket. From love and lust, to divorce and hatred; the film is full of emotion and contains lots of funny tweaks.
It was a challenging shoot, that ended up being a huge amount of fun and we think the trailer shows just how much fun the entire project was!

We spent 4 months recruiting cast and crew to fulfil the project, which was shot on Friday 11th March to Sunday 13th March 2011 inclusively.
We stumbled across a number challenges, the main one being location of the film, where we ended up building a shop from scratch at a conference centre! A lot of hardwork, but the most fulfilling film we have ever produced because of the amount of effort that was input by such a fantastic crew.

|Designing the publicity for a Light Films Production is always a challenge but enormous fun. This time round Luck Design was set the brief to create branding for a lo-cost supermarket which certainly adds authenticity to the look and feel of the film. Now you know where not to pop in for a pint of milk!|
