When a malevolent force offers Macbeth a future as king, encouraged by Lady Macbeth they seize their fate sooner than promised, with grave consequences.

    With an edit in final tweaks, we are looking to raise funds to push the film through the last stages of post production. This includes finishing the incredible score by Rob Lewis https://roblewiscomposer.com, creating a unique and exciting sound landscape, doing justice to the amazing cinematography with a stellar grade, adding further magic with subtle visual effects and finally QC and delivery.

    Screen Northants pitched an idea to BBC Children in Need; use the film making process to raise aspirations in young people, with a focus on the severely disadvantaged and/or underrepresented in our industry. Providing proof-of-concept funding, the results have been fantastic and BBC Children in Need have been blown away. Shot on what would be classed as no-budget, everyone dedicating their time and talent to a fulfilling method of not-for-profit production, making a high-end feature film that has relevance to education.

    Keen to give everyone’s hard work the justice it deserves, festival and cinema screenings await, We are on a final push through the closing stages, which is where we hope you can join our journey.
