Garland Stone Productions


Dewi Griffiths has formed Garland Stone Productions Ltd as a feature film and television production company to use his contacts from productions world wide and in the field of the horror genre in all media. Garland Stone's mission statement is to produce Avant Garde Genre Films with an Ancient Heritage. Garland Stone takes its name from a coaster on which a number of Dewi's forefathers sailed, which is in turn named after a prominent rock of the west coast of Pembrokeshire.

Garland Stone's first production is High Stakes, a low budget, high concept vampire film, is best described as Zulu meets Dusk Till Dawn. Crewed by top industry personnel drawn from Dewi's pool of colleagues, with highly motivated assistant trainees from the International Film School Wales and University of Glamorgan, High Stakes is now being sold worldwide. High Stakes was co-produced with Danny Chang Music & Media. Garland Stone has other productions currently being developed and financed - see the Garland Stone website for further details.

Dewi is currently developing and shooting a series of short horror films set in Arabia, based on the mythology of the region, all under the Garland Stone label.

Dewi's has previously produced and directed the half hour film dramas Rhyfel Cartre and Home Front (Welsh and English language), set during the 1982 Falklands War in West Wales. The films based on the experiences of his adolescence in West Wales in the early 1980's, and are cross genre war film / ghost stories referenced in the BFI Companion to Horror (Kim Newman ed. 1997.p.332). These films have been shown in numerous countries, and in special screenings by BAFTA Wales

Dewi's background in directing super 8mm & 16mm projects, and his initial career in editing, gave him the skills to allow him to work as a 2nd Unit Assistant Director working without a director in situ on some of his major feature film credits.

Dewi has written a number of genre feature film screenplays and created television series concepts both within Garland Stone and with other producers which are currently in production or under option.

During High Stakes, Dewi put all of these skills to work, collaborating on the story and script, directing additional scenes and seeing the film through the creative post production process.  These skills continue to be expanded through new productions, and the association with the USC Film School on the RSICA project.
