Gallowmere The Movie Project

Gallowmere The Movie

Forty Miles West is currently collaborating on a crowdfunded short film by visionary film director Oliver Hollingdale of Sunnymeade Films. The film is inspired by Tolkien’s Mythology with the visual flare of The Green Knight & Lord of the Rings has been in the works for over a year. With the trailer shot and edited, the crowdfunding campaign has begun to inject some needed funds into the project.

Oliver entrusted Forty Miles West to direct the cinematography for the project, having used us before on Valravn, a Viking short which streaming on Amazon Prime. Valravn also won awards at film festivals, giving us the confidence to try something bigger and better.

Oliver has great vision and has pulled together an amazing team and has worked tirelessly to get this project off the ground. Forty Miles West is happy to be trusted and involved in this amazing project. However, we need your help with the production costs, so that we can make this amazing short film for all you fantasy film lovers out there.

The Awkward part…

Every little donation helps towards realising the mission and passion of completing this project. We know we are asking for a substantial amount (we want to make this as amazing as we can), however should we miss the target, we will rethink certain areas and continue to push forward. We are very passionate and we want to accomplish our goal of making this film a reality.

This film will get made even if we do not reach our goal and we have already begun filming, If we hit target it means we can get it to you sooner!

Do feel free to use the custom donation and donate even £1! it all helps!

We are building this project in stages, in the completion of this project there is no guarantee for financial success, our main focus is creating a story that feels worthy of your time in a cinematic tidal wave of endless, sequels,reboots and hope it is a world you would love to see more of.

Our biggest challenges we feel we face is the Great British weather!!!
