Everything below provides solid assurance as to why we are worth backing! From the obvious: Kick-ass parkour ninja Morris dancing assassins... to our support of autistic, marginalised and mental health survivor crew members, together with fundraising for sickchildrenstrust.org - an incredible charity who helped us through the tragic death of our 12-year old daughter, Jodi, in 2010. 

We're 75% funded now! Our final fundraising push will allow us to hire the highest end camera equipment and the best crew to ensure the most professional end product.

If that's enough then please browse our fantastic rewards and join our crazy journey. We will be eternally grateful. If you need a little more convincing, then please read on. 

Peace and love. DB Morgan


"When a seaside town is gripped in a vice of drug fuelled corruption, sometimes the only solution is to book a dance with the Morris Men."

England is on its knees. A drug epidemic to match anywhere in the modern world. Cocaine, Heroin, Opium, Spice, Balloons, Beans, Benzos, Skunk, Ketamine, Mamba, Pinkies, Angel Dust, Billy, Blotters, Amsterdam gold... Bounce, Eric, Fentanyl, Ice, Kix, Lucy, Mandy, Meow Meow... and now Golden Goose.  

Something has to change!


The story of the Morris Men

In the pursuit of his childhood sweetheart, loner Tommy Feerman enrols in her Morris dancing club. He soon realises that all is not as it seems and covers for a secret society of shadowy assassins as ancient as the British realm. Before he knows it, Tommy is sucked into a perilous under-realm, where danger lurks behind a crimson wax seal and the only dancing is with the devil himself.

WHY WE SUPPORT THE SICK CHILDREN'S TRUST

OUR MOST RECENT PRESS ARTICLE HERE


SO... how to get this across without boring you?

They said I couldn't do it! I did. They said not to have autistic crew members! I did. They said mental health survivors don't make good crew members. I did it anyway. They spouted loads of negativity .... But we did it regardless. 

And we did it really well!!!

I know the world's going crazy right now and there are far more worthy places to spend your hard earned cash. But there has never been a better time to bring a movie to market (Netflix/Amazon/Youtube/Shudder/Itunes etc...and DVD).

We set out to make a little micro budget disaster movie, made in Colchester, using local crew - 70% of whom are on the autism spectrum, are mental health survivors or from challenging family backgrounds. 

We did it! 


NOW ONTO PROJECT #2 - Morris Men


"When a seaside town is gripped in a vice of drug fuelled corruption, sometimes the only solution is to book a dance with the Morris Men."



Passion, ambition, breaking down barriers and taking people under our wing who need an injection of positivity. This is what we are all about... oh, and making kick-ass feature films in our local region! 

Morris Men takes a vital part of British heritage in Morris Dancing and combines it with high octane parkour and martial arts elements to create a unique urban vengeance experience.


THE ARTISTIC FORCE

Artistic Executive, GREGG MASUAK (LEFT). One of the most prolific music video Directors in the U.S - having worked with Beyonce, Take That, Celine Dion, Kylie Minogue and many many more. Gregg's artistic eye will make Morris Men a lush visual experience.
