Scenes of a Sexual Nature’,
starring Ewan
McGregor
, has been celebrating this week after the film made it into
cinemas.

Jason
Saliba
, a 33-year-old accountant, who works for Michael George Associates in
Putney Bridge, raised 260,000 needed to make the film by setting up a company
and contacting friends, family, investors to raise the finances to get it made.

Saliba was approached by Aschlin Dita, who wrote the script, as he was a
friend of one of his clients.

The film is about seven interwoven love stories, all set on Hampstead Heath.

Saliba described the whole experience as ‘fantastic”.

‘Sometimes you just had to step back and think wow,’ he said.
