Risks and challenges

Making films is a privilege as well as our passion. For you to share this journey involves a trust in us and a belief in our work and for that we are truly grateful. We have drawn enormous inspiration from the story of the London Recruits. Their courage and sacrifice guides us as we attempt to do justice to their story in this film.

Ultimately all filmmaking is tempered by an element of risk. However, while we are at a particularly crucial stage in the project, we have already achieved many project milestones and are far advanced on the road to completion of London Recruits. The team behind the film have a consistent track record of delivering results.
