An ambitious UK-based project needs one final push to get over the line.
If you’re an avid fan of the Film Stories podcast where Simon tackles the production stories of films, large and small, on a weekly basis, you’ll know just how incredibly difficult it can be to birth a film into being. Kudos then, to the UK-based team behind Lawrence After Arabia who have almost completely funded what they see to be the final film in an unaffiliated trilogy of movies about the legendary T.E. Lawrence.
Following on from David Lean’s 1962 classic, Lawrence of Arabia, starring Peter O’Toole and then 1996’s Lawrence: A Dangerous Man which featured Ralph Fiennes, the film aims to close out the story of Lawrence’s life by charting the story of his later years and mysterious death.
With both pre-production and production funded and shot, the team behind the project are looking for funding to complete the film’s post-production work. They’ve included details of their budgeting and funding thus far on their website from which I’ve taken the image below:
If you’re a fan of the original Lawrence of Arabia (and who isn’t?), why not head over to their website or crowdfunding page on Kickstarter to find out more details. The film features Brian Cox among its cast. Its crowdfunding initiative has around three weeks left to run.
