Ulysses Unbound

...If you listen carefully you can hear my SCREAMS as the dancers perform the 'black hole' scene in the contemporary dance, Ulysses Unbound... Worry not, it's all part of the ethereal score Composed by Tim Mountain. The American voice over at the beginning of the film was actually provided by a Scientist !

Where was it performed?

The ballet was performed at various locations throughout the UK, North to South including The Royal Ballet School, Birmingham. Filming took place at two locations, the Royal Ballet School, Birmingham and The Swan Theatre Worcester. Link to promo film and Chantry Dance Co.


We had four camera operators for Ulysses, to capture just the right shot. As we wanted to give an authentic impression of being propelled through space, we used a drone to film some of the internal, red planet shots and spaceman footage. It gives you feeling of flying through space... It wasn't easy with GPS turned off. You really do have to be a skilled operator to fly drones in a Theatre !

So... what is Ulysses Unbound all about?

"The last astronaut has left a dying earth in search of a new home. In a thrilling cascade of stunning characters, costumes and imagery, he witnesses the birth of a new star and finds himself on an alien world, populated by very alien creatures - one of which he forms a strong bond with.

This extraordinary ballet combines an exciting original soundtrack with contemporary ballet danced by an exceptional international cast. Through the fascinating choreography the dancers interpret cosmic events, from the evolution of a star to the formation of a deadly black hole." extract from Chantry Dance Co.

Evenlode Films and Productions are highly recommended by our clients, take a moment to



Julian Sammon - Business Development Manager Minelab International

Having worked with Tim, Catherine and their team over the past 3 years I couldn't recommend them highly enough. This year's product launch conception, planning and execution at the Detectival outdoor event went beyond the scope of the brief and they provided additional ideas for content and creating an experience around the event that was well received and brilliantly executed. They really think about how much can be gained from the investment that is made in time and money by their clients and work as hard as they can to deliver the optimum. Looking forward to working with them again in the future


Guy Woodcock - CEO Montpellier PR

I've known and worked with Catherine a long time and she's the consummate professional; brave, determined, organised and thoroughly enterprising - an abundance of ideas and creative thinking.


Natasha Russell - CEO  Natasha Russell Events

Great support from the team with outstanding videos results produced on a really quick turnaround. Not only did they produce excellent short 'story to camera' pieces but an outstanding creative piece to support the campaign


Dany Freemantle - CEO Oasis Events

These guys are great to work with. Between their production, mapping and filming expertise they can support every aspect of our business and are collaborative, responsive and generous with their time and expertise. Fast and punctual with deliverables and a failsafe pair of hands whatever the project.


Dominic Cotter - BBC Presenter

I have worked with Catherine Mountain (Producer) from Evenlode Productions on a number of occasions. Her company has won the contract with Cheltenham Bid to supply the town with various memorable events, including projecting a World War 2 animation onto the side of the municipal offices as well as providing art installations and Imagery for Christmas celebrations. Added to that I worked with Catherine at the Minelab Detectival Festival in the Cotswolds. Her outstanding professionalism and creative talent is second to none and I would recommend her and Evenlode productions for your event , whether it’s filming or an audio production. I look forward to working with Catherine again soon


Lesley Saint - CEO Cotswold Social Media

We worked with Catherine and Tim (Co Founders)  on a promotional video for the historic Montpellier area of Cheltenham. We were really

impressed with their creativity and commitment to our project. The result was fantastic and something over and above what we expected. We became aware of Evenlode's skills after seeing the outstanding Remembrance Day projection and really wanted to work with them. Highly recommended


Kelly Ramsey 

The visual impact of the film the team created to honour Cheltenham's Fallen for the WW1 centenary was breathtaking.

An honest, creative, passionate team that know exactly how to deliver and support you in achieving your aims
