“Organised, calm and professional. When working with Sharma and the Echo team on set there was a strong atmosphere of high standards and professionalism. As soon as I arrived I immediately felt welcome and everyone was friendly. Working on set opened my eyes and gave me an insight as to what life could be like on set. I entered the set as a determined actor, but I left the set as an even determined actor. I definitely work with them again.”
“I think Echo Film & Media are a fantastic company to work with, and extremely professional. It’s great value for money; they offer such a great service and package that suited me. For the price it was well worth it. Sharma and Wasim made me feel really comfortable on set to help me achieve the best results for my actor showreel. I would definitely recommend this company in the future to anyone who needs a service that they offer, its well worth getting in touch”
“Really enjoyed working with Sharma, Waz and the rest of the team. I as an actor felt I received the highest level of professionalism from the crew and at the same time made the whole experience enjoyable. Sharma has written my scenes for the Showreel and she has given me 5 completely different characters to play which is fantastic. I would and have recommended to friends.”
“Echo are single-handedly responsible for my current profile with in the music industry today. They have the ability to bring my dreams and ideas to life. With no stress. I’m constantly compared to others and ‘Flying Out My Gates’ video they helped broadcast nationally (now out on itunes), was the most valuable tool I could have hoped for. I can’t sing high enough praise of; I hope to work with them again . Lastly they met my deadline, which in the world of media, is paramount.”
I am very proud to have worked with Sharma and all her crew on ‘only a boy’. I was also overwhelmed by the work ethic of the young actors and their discipline through some very gruelling scenes. I wish this new edgy Manchester production all the deserved success.

MEN Interview with James Gill!
A rapper is on track to become an internet hit with a song about cycling around Manchester.
James Gill, 25, clocked up more than 50,000 views with his video Flying Out My Gates – about his two-wheeled travels in areas such as Levenshulme, Longsight, and Rusholme.
The video – which features vocals from Manchester-based singer Tristan Henry – was filmed by James on location with director Wasim Ghafoor.
Now James, who says he’s ‘Rusholme born and bred’, aims to break into the big time with his album, The Purpose is the Process, released in March.
In Flying Out My Gates, James describes his everyday journeys from meeting friends in Levenshulme to his favourite Turkish supermarket, Venus, in Longsight, up Curry Mile and then to Sport City, near his flat, to play basketball.
James said: “I’ve been amazed at the good reaction the song has received. People have been emailing me asking when the song will be released. I think people have really related to it.”
He added that the song is not just about cycling around the city, it’s also ‘a metaphor about the music industry’.
His bike represents musical bars, the road the music industry as a whole, while potholes are ‘haters’ – people who bad mouth his songs.
The Purpose is the Process, which come out on James’s own record label, won’t be his first self-released record.
He sold an amazing 4,000 copies of his previous album just by standing on Market Street in the city centre – before the council moved him on because he didn’t have a traders’ licence.
Former Xaverian College student James – who teaches music production to teenagers – added that Flying Out Ma Gates was also about his own ‘journey’ from flirting with petty crime to being on the brink of having a career in the music industry.
He added: “I hope that people will listen to the song and get a bit nostalgic about their own journeys through Manchester.”
