Sunny South Film Co.

Sunny South was started in 1913 by 4 residents of Shoreham By Sea in Sussex. Shoreham By Sea was a small community that had become a get-away for theater people because of the clean air and quaint atmostphere. Francis Leonard Lyndhurst (artist), Will Evans (comedian), Arthur Conquest (comedian), and George Graves (comedian), set up to film comedy shorts using the seaside and Shoreham Fort, (an experimental fort built in 1857) as the backdrop for their films.

In 1914 they produced 4 films; Building a Chicken House, The Jockey, Harnessing a Horse and The Showman's Dream.

In 1915, Lyndhurst took control of the company and changed the name to Sealight Film Company
