Kim Beamish has been trying to make films for a while and has been learning from those he worked with and from the mistakes he has made each time. OYSTER is a film he, along with producer Pat Fiske, think fits well into the good side of his filmmaking. After finishing THE TENTMAKERS OF CAIRO, Kim was looking for the next film and visited an idea that was even bigger than Ben Hur (the original of course). Out of this came a smaller idea to revisit a family friend, Dominic Boyton, and ask if he and his camera could spend a few years with Dom and his family. The answer was yes and the Boytons generously and at times nervously opened their lives to the camera. A few million oysters later and Kim and Pat produced OYSTER.
