Showcase On: Director Jason Wilcox

Independent UK film director Jason Wilcox has recently put up trailers for 15 of his feature films on the video site Vimeo.

Jason specialises in producing low-budget dramatic thrillers with a psychological edge and a touch of gothic horror.  His films feature new acting talent from around the UK.

Many of the films contain a certain amount of female nudity some of which can be seen in the trailers.

If there is sufficient interest Jason hopes to make the full films available on the same or similar platform.
