The Lion Awakes - Kickstarter Promotion To Raise $105,000 Please Share!
March 20, 2012
Your support for this full length feature film at this crucial stage is paramount. We want to tell of the extraordinary and hitherto untold story of the faith and friendship between C.S Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien.
We only have 30 days to raise $105,000 or your pledges are lost. So please help if you can! There are some amazing rewards in exchange.
We promise some astonishing CGI effects, delivering a tantalizing taste of the fantasy worlds of Middle-earth and Narnia
We will show the carnage of WWI which caused Lewis to lose his Faith and Tolkien to begin writing The Hobbit with blood and mud stained fingers in the trenches, adds another dimension to this incredible true story.
We also see C.S Lewis address Britain in her darkest hour, becoming the second most recognised voice on the radio after Winston Churchill!
J.R.R Tolkien has never been seen on the big screen, nor has the interplay between these two literary giants been told in the grand and compelling manner that their story demands. Imagine your amazement at seeing the author of The Lord of The Rings sharing an astounding journey with the author of The Chronicles Of Narnia!
This is a film for the people by the people. People of Faith, those who wrestle with Doubt, those of other religions and those of no faith at all will walk away from this film knowing they have experienced something extraordinary. We all have our journeys. We are all one and share the same feelings, joy and friendship as these two brilliant but ultimately humble men.
You will see the flashbacks of the carnage both men witnessed and endured in the trenches of WW1, and how Lewis, though an atheist at that time, found redemption by addressing Britain in its darkest hour in the second World War, becoming the second most recognised voice on the radio after Winston Churchill.
You will wonder and delight at the genius of these two incredible writers, as each encouraged the other to explore and develop their fantasy worlds of Narnia and Middle-Earth, which led to each man becoming the author of a billion dollar franchise!
Join with us and pledge your support. We will continually bring you updates on a weekly basis. This film must be made and the story brought to millions of people around the world. In a world sadly short of heroes, let us remember the ones who still impact on our lives today!
Funds raised will be spent on casting, line production, and to offer the first level of capital investment necessary to secure venture capital. We are currently in first round negotiations with British film financiers. The more we bring to the table from a vast network of fans and supporters, the more control we have to make this film really come to life in a true and transparent way.
