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.
‘Muse Of Fire’ the critically acclaimed shakespearean road movie has won yet another accolade.

When we were asked to be involved in making a road trip video for our good friend and fellow producer Dan Poole, we jumped at the chance. Dan was invited to speak at TEDx in Madrid and with fellow ‘Muse of Fire’ producer Giles Terera, he drove the 1000 miles from the Globe Theatre in London to Madrid in a Ford Galaxy.
