As well as Refn, Hossein has chalked up work with Scorsese (on Gangs of New York, Winterbottom (Jude), Ian Softley (Hossein was Oscar-nominated for The Wings of the Dove) and John Madden (Killshot).

Jeff Nottingham gets Arts Council Funding for "Lost in Mozart"

Jeff Nottingham (Class of 2010) has received Arts Council funding for his urban musical, “Lost in Mozart”.
The stage show is a high-drama bromance set in the, factually-based “postal code wars” between the Mozart and Kilburn estates and pitches classical music head-on with the “spitting” scene of North West London.

 “Lost in Mozart” will premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in August at theSpaceUK venues and will transfer to London (Venue tbc) in October.
The show is based on Jeff’s screenplay of the same title and will be used as a platform for a feature production in 2012.
