Under concrete ceilings and fluorescent lights, the disparate lives of the embattled residents play out. A surreal patchwork of idiosyncrasy, of chaos and confusion, it is a place where simple acts can lead to devastating extremes.

BLOCK is the pilot episode for a 6-part television series written by Oliver Cane and Simon Wharf. Dealing with contemporary themes of disillusionment and detachment, BLOCK weaves a Kafkaesque web of mystery and horror.

Location & Resources

BLOCK was shot completely on location in and around various tower blocks in Birmingham.


'With this project the location was paramount. Having Film Birmingham on side to help us gain access to various sites across the city was truly invaluable.'

Ian Gerrish, Production Manager
