About

We have had such an adventure making this documentary. Never did we expect to have so many of the cast from the movie 'Excalibur' come forward and meet us.

The interviews we have conducted are brilliant! A real mixture of humour, toil and fond memories.

The estimated runtime for this project is between 60-80 minutes.

John Boorman celebrates his 80th birthday in 2013 and six decades as a film director. This documentary pays tribute to one of his most iconic films after 'Deliverence'.

We believe in this project and have backed it as far as we can. We still have the final fence to climb before we release, with your help, a great feature documentary.

 

What We Need

The funding is needed for post production. All of which come with a high price tag and is something we cannot do ourselves... or we would!

  • Editing of the film
  • Audio (Voice over recording, sound mix and soundtrack)
  • Voice over artist and numerous other post production costs!
