Simon Ellis won an award at Sundance in 2007 for his short film Soft which was also nominated for a BAFTA award, and now, courtesy of Vertigo which is one of the finest producers of genre material in the UK, he's making his feature length debut with a comedy about love and sex. Dogging is defined as a "euphemism for engaging in sexual acts in a semi-public place (typically a secluded car park)". Dogging will also be playing in competition at the upcoming Rotterdam Film Festival.

Wannabe journalist Dan expected so much more after graduation.. but with no leads, little ambition and a girlfriend who would rather cosy up to the boss at the office, it's not exactly as he planned. In a bid to get his life back on track and coerced by his womanising flatmate, Dan is introduced to the risque sex scene that is Dogging. Encoutnering an array of qweird and wonderful characters looking for the ultimate high, it's quickly clear that the scene is ripe for an expose. Dropping his inhibitions in the name of research, Dan quickly becomes a regular player on the car park circuit, until he meets fellow thrill-seeker Laura and the totally unexpected hapens. He falls in love.

Two stills after the break. This is set to drop in the UK on March 27th.
