A new historical / fantasy epic is being created in Scotland. The film is set in the ancient Kingdom of Dalriata before it united with the Picts to become Scotland. Alpin MacEchdach must unite his kingdom if he is to defeat a terrifying supernatural evil and rescue his young brother, Finn. The deep characters and compelling story have motivated an enthusiastic cast and crew to attempt the impossible as they work together to bring this independent feature film to the screen.

Dalriata’s King‘ features young actors previously featured on this site including Peter Gait, Steven Gait (aka the Gaitway Brothers) and Finn is played by Noah Irvine (the younger brother of Samuel Irvine). These young actors also featured in ‘The Fable of Forsaken’ which was released last year and is now touring film festivals. Both films were ventures of the independent film company ‘Fellowship Film‘ which works alongside communities to bring about large-scale film projects of real depth and value.

Noah Irvine, comes from a family of actors and his father, Barry Irvine, played the heroic Templar Knight in ‘The Fable of Forsaken’. The shoot has been incredibly full on for the young actor and he will not be wrapped until mid-November. However, he has approached this difficult and very physical role with relish and no shortage of enthusiasm!

 Noah tells us:

“The film is awesome and if you like action, well… it’s just the perfect film!”

The press is hailing the film as the ‘budget braveheart‘ (but with better accents!) due to the fact that ‘Dalriata’s King‘ is a passion project, achieving professional standards and high production value on a micro budget. All cast and crew are giving their services for free because they wholeheartedly believe in the project and want to see a change in the provision for large scale films with creative vision.
