'Dragged Up' was funded via Kickstarter and shot on location in High Wycombe and the Isle of Sheppey. Milly and her art department contracted COVID-19 two days before shoot, so Milly dressed all the sets via FaceTime - with huge thanks to the remaining fantastic and generous crew to make it happen.
