About The Right Juice Movie

His career in tatters after stock market speculation in oil futures, a disgraced young banker starts an orange plantation in the Algarve – but his past catches up with him when he strikes oil.

Who wouldn’t want to see a corrupt banker go bankrupt and have to move to a shack in the country to survive? Who doesn’t dream of living in a place in the sun? This is what The Right Juice is all about. Oliver, our hero, is a banker and a greedy bastard. You meet him in the film after he’s been thrown out of London and has a dream of making millions growing oranges in the Algarve.

Picture a young man attempting to refurbish an old farm cottage which is almost in ruins. His lovely wife from the city arrives expecting a villa with a pool… He is dreaming ambitiously. He wants to start an orange plantation but… how to get water for his trees? Is there a market for oranges? Is he running away from his past, or racing towards his future? Encounters with his neighbours, an old enemy from his banking years, new friendships and personal devils all create havoc in what was to be a peaceful, sunny idyll.

If life gives you oranges…

… make The Right Juice! The first English language feature film fully shot and set in the Algarve region of Southern Portugal – it’s people , it’s beauty, and it’s comedy! The Algarve has been dreaming about a film being made which captures it’s spirit, and we made that happen. We also happened to make the dreams of everyone involved in the project come true – we made a wonderful feature film!

Main Cast

Mark Killen

Role: Oliver Fellows

Mark plays the role of Oliver Fellows, the hero of our story. Mark brought great humour, generosity and professionalism to the character and to the project. He was unflagging in his enthusiasm and motivation for the work.

Lúcia Moniz

Role: Nesta

Lúcia played the part of Nesta, a dolphin trainer and marine biologist who befriends Oliver and helps him on his quest. Working with Lúcia was a joy. Her dedication and continual striving for excellence was inspiring and demanding in equal measures. And her dolphin acrobatic skills are simply phenomenal.

Miguel Damião

Role: Manel

Previously, Miguel has mostly played serious and dramatic characters. However, when he took on the role of Manel in The Right Juice, his comic talents came to the fore. Not only on screen, but on set he made us giggle too.

Ellie Chidzey

Role: Sally Fellows

Beautiful, vibrant and captivating. Ellie made the character of Oliver’s wife, Sally, come alive and made us love her and engage with her. She lights up the screen every scene she is in, just as she lights up a room when she walks in.

Beau McClellan

Role: Andreus Dranius

Beau played the part of a Scottish-Greek ex-banker, and Oliver’s nemesis. World renown as a lighting designer and artist, this was Beau’s debut as an actor and he took to it with a vengeance. His intensity, charisma and charm shone through on the screen.

Support Cast


Kristjan Knigge


Kristjan Knigge grew up in the Algarve and even though he now lives in Amsterdam he still considers the Algarve his ‘terra’. To date he has made short films, commercials, corporates, music videos and a full length documentary. The Right Juice was the perfect opportunity to do what he loves in the place that he loves; filming in the Algarve.

BJ Boulter

Production Designer & Producer

With over 40 years experience in film, from Wardrobe Mistress at the ABC in Australia, through to Art Directing in Amsterdam and now producing in Portugal, BJ wis the driving force behind the project. The Right Juice is not just a whim and is a challenge to her full professional, design and organisation experience in making movies.

David Butler-Cole


David’s great passion is the theatre. All his life, since primary school, he he has been involved in the dramatic arts as either director or actor. He has also spent many happy hours writing, firstly pantomimes, then revues, music halls and plays – which he has successfully produced. “The Right Juice” is David’s first attempt at writing a screen play, a process which he enjoyed tremendously.

Chris Parker


Chris comes from a commercial and corporate background, and The Right Juice is the opportunity to fulfill a life long goal of producing a feature film. His main motivation is the chance to work with such a great creative team and support them in the realisation of their dream – bringing The Right Juice to the big screen. His contribution to this effort is specifically focused on creating and achieving a plan which balances the creative ambitions of the team with the commercial realities of the market.

Dick Merx

Director of Photography

Dick’s job was to make sure every shot looked beautiful… and he did! with his keen eye and propensity for using minimal tools and maximising the use of natural light he endeavoured to make every shot as stunning and impactful as possible.

Karen Radzikowski

1st Assistant Director

The most important person on any film set is the 1st AD. The ADs run the show, make sure everyone knows what they should be doing, and bolster the director when his confidence flags. Karen got us to the end of shooting through a tough schedule, with everything in the can! She was unflagging and indefatigable.

Miguel Palhinha

2nd Assistand Director

A 1st AD is only as good as their 2nd AD. On larger shoots the ADs will have a whole department, with 2nd 2nd ADs and PA’s to take on various tasks. Karen just had Miguel. He was an entire department in himself and he did an awesome job co-ordinating actors schedules, supporting Karen and helping on set.

Pedro Matos

Camera Operator

Local filmaker Pedro Matos joined the team as Camera Operator. His boundless energy and enthusiasm was a boon on tough days, and the shots look fantastic. He also formed a great bridge between the Dutch and Portuguese crew members.

Jur Oster

1st Assistant Camera

Focus Puller Jur kept the actors sharp in the frame, and everyone else entertained with his excellent sense of humour! He was Gold Medalist in the hotly contended ‘extending the tape measure the longest distance’ competition.

Suzy Turner

Script Supervisor

The Right Juice was Suzy’s first time on a film set (she is a successful author), and she took on the daunting task of Script Supervisor. Learning every day, Suzy took to the task with a great attitude and proved invaluable on set. Her work is still being used right through post-production, as the editor relies heavily on her script notes.

Erik Schuring

Sound Recordist & Sound Designer

Erik joined the team half way through production. Thrown in at the deep end, he got into the flow of things quickly and did a great job. He inherited an assistant, André, but they quickly became a team and saw the film through to the end of shooting. Erik is also in charge of audio post production sound, as the Sound Designer. Pictured here with André Espada. Erik’s the one without the beard!

The Antunes Brothers

1st Assistant Director

The brothers António and Caca were our grip and electric department. They are both Gaffers in their own rights, and tag teamed as Dolly Grips whenever we needed traveling shots. Two entire departments manifest in these two brothers, bringing decades of experience to the crew. António also provided all the lighting and grip equipment through his company, Cinelight ‘n Grip.

Fábio Guerreiro

2nd Assistand Camera

Besides diligently marking the clapperboard Fábio spent a lot of time running back and forth fetching batteries. There being no electricity at many of our locations, this often involved quite a bit of traveling.

João calvário

Art Director
Besides acting in the movie, João was the rock in the Art Department. Creative, talented, dedicated, peaceful, inspiring, gentle… João. And he’s an excellent cook, often treating us to wonderful dinners back at Oxalá after a hard days shooting!

Jean Chardet

Costume Designer

Without wardrobe the actors would get cold and look silly. Jean was our Costume Designer. Wardrobe for The Right Juice was an interesting challenge as we needed a range of styles, from grubby overalls to fabulous evening gowns, but Jeanny met every challenge head on!

João Gaspar

2nd Assistand Director

João joined us on the action days as Stunt Coordinator. There are some great action sequences in the film, and João was on hand to make sure everything went safely and smoothly. Specially important considering Mark did his own stunts and amazing Ape driving!

Sonja ten Boom


Sonja is a steady and careful editor, a perfect foil for Kristjan’s flighty burbeliness. She started collating and cutting scenes during production a farm warehouse at our basecamp!

Andre Ettema


Andre had the unenviable task of creating a hybrid score that bridged the two worlds portrayed in the film. Bringing Portuguese soulful fado into a cinematic theme while respecting the genre of comedy. And it worked!
