Muse Of Fire

MUSE OF FIRE is an 83-minute feature documentary produced by actors Giles Terera (Hamilton) and Dan Poole (Dungeons & Dragons), (Peterloo) in 2013. At GVFilm we helped sculpt the narrative via sizzle reels and sales trailers, before assisting in the edit of the film and a special BBC version – as well as also providing Trailers and promotional material. To this day it is still racking up new international sales across a huge variety of formats.
It is a testament to creating materials that will sell a film and can be delivered to global platforms.

Dawn Of War

Official trailer for Kaleidoscope Film Distribution.

The international box office smash hit: a stunning spy thriller set on the eve on WWII, this is the real-life story of an Estonian spy tasked with catching a Soviet double agent, and preventing a catastrophic Red Army invasion. 

It’s August 1939 and Europe fears an imminent war. Standing alone against Stalin’s Soviet Union and Hitler’s Third Reich, the country of Estonia suffers a fatal blow when the head of counter-Soviet Intelligence is murdered, raising suspicions of a mole within their ranks. As global, political and military events unfold at a dizzying speed, the task of finding the mysterious Soviet double agent falls to Estonian spy, Feliks Kangur. But whilst chasing down the traitor, Germany and the Soviet Union make their move to invade Poland, and Feliks makes a chilling discovery… The Red Army have actioned a covert operation to annex Estonia next, an event that would have devastating consequences for both his country, and his secret relationship with young Polish art historian, Maria.

The Space Theatre Of Survival on SKY Arts

We have been involved in the making and promotion of this documentary for a long time and it is gratifying to see it making its way to UK TV screens on SKY Arts and we congratulate our friends at Timebomb Pictures.

“In 1972 at the height of the apartheid struggle in South Africa, a group of artists risked everything to build a safe space dedicated to all freedoms—artistic, social and political. ‘The Space’, born from the unremitting efforts of the government to silence all opposition, became the ‘Theatre of Survival’ for the voices of all artists – a place where, no matter the colour of their skin, they could be seen and heard. The groundbreaking work of these artists reverberated worldwide at a time when the price of their artistic freedom was incarceration or worse. Featuring Athol Fugard (the most performed playwright in the world after Shakespeare), Tony award-winners John Kani and Winston Ntshona, satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys, Academy Award winner Richard E. Grant, and many more, The Space is the definitive record of the Cape Town theatre with a mission to oppose Apartheid and champion freedom of expression.”

The Rifleman (Blizzard Of Souls)

UK trailer for Parkland Pictures with all production in-house at GVFilm as we continue remote workflows during the Covid-19 Crisis.

The Rifleman pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of the First World War, as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farm-boy turned soldier. Though he is underage, and his dad, a former marksman, is overage for the army, they are both conscripted into one of Latvia’s first national battalions. The thrill of training is soon followed by reality, as shells burst around them in the endless mud. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, their lives are constantly in jeopardy. Adapted from the book by Aleksandrs Grins, which was banned in the U.S.S.R., the story was based on Grins’ own war experiences in a Latvian battalion.

Out now in selected UK Cinemeas across the country.
Available on digital download from August 10, 2020, and on DVD from August 24, 2020.

The Gentlemen

GV Film were commissioned by celebrity photographer Daniel Smith to bring his behind the scenes portrait videos of the cast of Guy Richie’s film – The Gentlemen to life.

Working closely with Daniel and the teams at STX entertainment we created cast ensemble and individual cast videos for use across social media that referenced the existing style template for the campaign release but caught the eye due to Daniel’s unique style and vision.
