Celebrating film production across the North

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce invites you to meet the critically acclaimed the British-Chinese Director, Chee Keong Cheung and actor Mark Strange, behind the next cinematic experience, Redcon-1.

This is a unique opportunity for an insight into the making of this ambitious British cinematic film and to explore how businesses can get involved. There’ll also be plenty of networking opportunities.


Millions affected, a nation divided, an enemy with no soul.

War has just evolved.

Amidst a deadly pandemic that has seen half the country quarantined, a squad of eight special forces soldiers are assigned to rescue a scientist who is believed to hold the cure. The mission sees them travelling to the heart of the quarantine zone, and in the process, they uncover a secret that threatens not only their survival, but that of mankind itself.

The film was shot across the UK including Manchester, Lancaster, Leyland, Rugby, Stafford, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Lancaster and London and using cast of 1,500 extras, many from the Manchester area.

Special FX Make Up artist Shaune Harrison ('World War', 'Harry Potter') based in Manchester also joined the production.

Some of the film was also edited in Manchester at Dock 10 in Media City by acclaimed editor Chris Gill ('28 Days Later', '28 Weeks Later')

Director Chee Keong Cheung says: “It is my intention for ‘Redcon-1’ to feature some of the most ambitious and stunning fight sequences ever seen on-screen, fusing various styles from traditional to mixed martial arts. This is what will make the film stand out from other Zombie films and will prove it’s truly unique selling point. Whilst the action will be stylised and at times balletic, it will maintain a grounded sense of realism within the world created.”
