Culture - Blue Story
Blue Story is the acclaimed inner-city drama from British musician, writer and film director Rapman. Having made his name with the 3-part internet series sensation ‘Shiro’s Story’, Blue Story saw a nationwide cinematic release as well as airing exclusively to Netflix. Filmed across a 28 day period in 2019 and set in the London borough of Lewisham, the gritty, candid and often moralistic drama paints a picture of life in urban Britain, reflecting the reality for many people and drawing on Rapman’s many experiences as a young man growing up in this environment.
The KING collection was used as outfits for central characters including Daps, Switcher and Skits - played by long term KING team member and actor Sean Sagar (Ill Manors, Top Boy, Our Girl) as well as a host of extras and background characters throughout the film.
Our history in being involved in homegrown UK cinema goes back to previous film releases such as Plan B’s Ill Manors and the classic Adulthood, and as such it was an honor to be involved in a film that has been critically acclaimed and stands as the pinnacle of UK urban cinema and for UK urban culture.
