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.
GV Film were commissioned to polish trailer assets from Icon’s vast library for 2021 OTT distribution which included updating PAL and NTSC assets to HD, censor cuts and new graphic elements. Titles included Austin Powers International Man Of Mystery, Mullholland Falls, The Getaway and Enigma.
We also created a few original trailers when assets were not available such as for the blockbuster 90’s thriller ‘Shattered’.

“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.”

Trailer for the Arrow Video Channel release of the classic gangster movie. Set during the turbulent post-war years, Fukasaku’s original 1975 film charts the rise and fall of real-life gangster Rikio Ishikawa (Tetsuya Watari, Outlaw Gangster VIP). Shot through with the same stark realism and quasi-documentarian approach as Fukasaku’s earlier Battles Without Honor and Humanity, Fukasaku nonetheless breaks new ground through his portrayal of a gangster utterly without honor or ethics, surviving by any means necessary in a world of brutal criminality.
