This week sees the launch of the Indiegogo campaign for November Films “A Very British Cult.” A Very British Cult is going to be a feature length documentary about the 1970’s and early 1980’s self help group Exegesis. A group that was not short of controversy every resulting in questions in Parliament and a BBC program about it.
Louis Price our director grow up in the program with both his parents members of the organisation and is exploring what really went on and examining how it has effected his and the other members lives.
Most of the documentary will be shot digitally just like the above pitch video which we filmed main on my Canon 5D. However there is the intention is to shoot part of the documentary using dramatic re-enactment the on 16mm film, which will be more in keeping with media production of the time . This will probably be the last time I get to shoot on actual film which is both an exciting and yet sad prospect.
November films have a good track record in the documentary field having already produced Beyond Biba, and distributed several documentaries in the UK.
