The Documentary film Dashing For Dallas goes into a 3rd and final phase. After filming in combat in Afghanistan then interviewing combatants and civilians 5 years later. We find out where these people are 10 years on. This will bring over a decades worth of documenting to a close.....or will it?
Dashing For Dallas is seeing some hefty re-edit action for a VOD network series trial. To cut or not to cut the editors bain!
Proud as punch that Sebastian Junger has given a nod to DASHING FOR DALLAS.
"Dashing for Dallas is the real deal - straight, raw and unfiltered. A nation that has been at war for this long should know what war feels like for its soldiers, and this film goes straight for it." SEBASTIAN JUNGER, Oscar nominee and award-winning director of HBO documentaries Restrepo (2010), Korengal (2014) and The Last Patrol (2015)
OBESITY TIME BOMB
UPDATE: Raynham's report made it to the Ministry of Health via the minister for culture media and sports. Their response has done little to convince him of any positive government action. Raynham will be following up with further correspondence. Local NHS have suggested a pilot scheme where Raynham would act as a "Fitness Tsar". These developments will feature in the film production.
OBESITY TIME BOMB has already achieved one its primary objectives. Our very own Dan Raynham has been given approval for his fitness and obesity report to be handed to the UK minister for Health. Dan says "I was expecting a much tougher journey to get to this point, but happily this gives much more room in the documentary to explain my reports mechanisms".
MAD JACK the screenplay is in full swing. Research and scripting under way. This is a truly remarkable story and we are incredibly excited to be working on it. Nick Allen of Shoostring films is currently traversing the world collecting information.
DASHING FOR DALLAS has received a bizarre and unexpectedly huge leap in profile as it features the actual footage shot by the real life character played by Martin Freeman in the upcoming Tina Fey movie - Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. The Hobbit in question is our very own Nick Allen, although at 6 foot 1 he is somewhat miffed.
Exciting times ahead a DASHING FOR DALLAS fine cut is almost completed and ready for screenings and festival roll-out.
Dan is writing and presenting a documentary OBESITY TIME BOMB about the UK's health crisis. Filming starts this weekend. He is currently writing a white paper on the topic for the British government.
Pre production has begun on two new documentary projects. One about the unconscious bias against the recruitment of women in engineering and science. The second "Yellow Is The New Purple" is all about the flower the Sweet Pea and the elusive genetic quest for a yellow flower.
