A new historical / fantasy epic is being created in Scotland. The film is set inÂ 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‘Â features young actors previously featuredÂ on this siteÂ 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 featuredÂ 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.
Peter Gait is victim to the evil sorceress, Nathara (played by Kerry Browne)
Noah Irvine, comes from a family of actors and his father, Barry Irvine, played the heroic Templar Knight inÂ ‘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!
Â 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‘ (butÂ with better accents!) due to the fact thatÂ ‘Dalriata’s King‘Â is a passion project, achievingÂ 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 filmsÂ with creative vision.
The second block of filming is being funded through an Indigogo campaignÂ which is already more than half-way to its target. Click hereÂ or the image below to find outÂ more and see the first epic footage from ‘Dalriata’s King‘!
