Sober the movie – a new film by Matthew Cooper

Wow, it’s been a long while since I wrote blogpost for this website – I’ve been a little bit busy with my feature film SOBER – which is currently in post-production and only a couple of months from being finished – 2023 has been an incredible year so far – and Sober is going to make a bit of a comedic stir when we finally release it into the wild.

‘Sober’ is getting close to being done and myself and the two lead actors and co-writers/producer expect BIG things from the film – its very funny.

Sober is a feature film – which is shot in Leeds, on location in less than  10 days.

The film was made for a budget of less than £10,000 and the cast features some award-winning actors and actresses – who all worked for free.

As post-production nears a conclusion in the next few months or so – I will be blogging on here again – and across on my director website –

There’s also a website set up for Sober the movie – which has a blog sections and a behind the scenes section – we’re still building that website up – but its worth checking out.

So, sorry for the radio silence – but Sober – is gonna be worth the wait.
