Inside Croydon avid reader (apparently, there’s more than one) and small-scale movie maker Michael Hall has made it into the top 20 for Empire magazine’s “Done in 60 Seconds” competition – for the third year in succession.
The competition requires budding movie makers to remake a film of their choice, sticking to just 60 seconds of screen time.
After successful versions of Where Eagles Dare (filmed on Addington Hills) and The Towering Inferno (filmed in a 1970s cul-de-sac off Park Hill Road) in the last two years, this year Hall has written, directed and edited a spoof of the classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers.

“I’ve never yet made it to the final five with public voting, but people can support me by voting for No6,” Hall, 31, said.

“And even if I don’t get through, at least it should give your readers a few chuckles,” Hall said.
