Outlaw Legacy heads back to 1960 to tell the story of Ted Brogan, now an old man, reluctantly adjusting to the newly civilized world. Living in solitude, Ted’s true identity is uncovered by Derek Powell, who plans to use Brogan to write himself into Western folklore.
This quickly became a passion-project of mine, encouraged by my fascination with the style and subject matter of the genre. The idea came from inspiration from other revisionist Westerns of the modern era. An anti-hero, adapting to survive, metaphorically battling time itself. His opponent out to satisfy his own selfish greed. One dreaming of the past, the other refusing to live in the present.
The style desired for the film will be sharp and crisp but simultaneously looking like it belongs in the time period that it is set. Vivid contrast will be present between the interior setting of Ted’s home - as cynically secluded as the man himself - and the outside world, with vast and natural colours. The closest either man will get to a return to the Old West.

Dan is a passionate editor, he has worked on several projects and is gradually learning how to improve himself. This is his first project he’ll be editing on this scale and is hopeful to collaborate on many more in the area of post production.
Bradley Taylor - Assistant Camera

Bradley previously worked on a short film set in a post apocalyptic world, so he is no stranger to big production sets. He hopes that working with this team can make something extraordinary.
The production design is hugely important towards the success of Outlaw Legacy, with prop, costume and location work being of highest importance. This is where the majority of any money received would be allocated. We also want Ted and Derek to be portrayed accurately, despite likely being played by British actors. This means a large portion of the funding would also be set towards hiring actors of a calibre capable of performing convincingly on screen.
We realise that donating financially is not always an option. If so, please like and share this crowdfunding campaign as far and wide as possible. Every bit of support is truly appreciated and will help Outlaw Legacy come to fruition in the best way imaginable. Thank you.
