NEWS: Cosmo Jarvis’ Directorial Debut “The Naughty Room” To Be Screened On BBC4

At the tender aged of just 22 Cosmo Jarvis has already made a name for himself as a young cultural chameleon.  For the past four years he has been combining his talents in music and film.  His YouTube shorts have been viewed over 3.2 million times and earned him a host of celebrity admirers including Stephen Fry, Brian Eno and Kylie Minogue.

This work has already made him an online phenomenon and secured Cosmo a whole host of fans who admire his originality, but the ever aspirational Cosmo has to take it up a gear.  He has just finished his first ever full-length film, which he wrote, directed, shot, edited, scored and starred in – on a self-financed budget of eight thousand pounds. Entitled ‘The Naughty Room’, the film has now been confirmed for its premiere screening on BBC4 10pm Monday August 20th.

The Naughty Room is a black comedy dealing with abuse, death, drugs, sex and redemption and tells the story of Todd, a 20 year old who has been incarcerated since he was a child in a bathroom – the Naughty Room – by his disturbed mother.  When 20 year-old Subaru discovers the imprisoned Todd he unleashes a daring escape plan with unintended consequences.

In Cosmo’s words, his new film is: “Mainly about parenting, as well as taking responsibility to better yourself.  The hardest part of making this film was not being older.  People just don’t want to deal with you in a professional manner if you’re young. But truly the worst part was hearing Mr Spielberg was up on the Dartmoor, our local beauty spot, making ‘War Horse’ with a crew of fuckloads, rather than two Volkswagen Golfs.”

The Naughty Room broadcast combined with the release of his new album ‘Think Bigger’ prompted a recent BBC Radio 4 TODAY programme feature.
