What if two guys made a film about Test cricket? Jarrod Kimber and Sam Collins take a snapshot of Test cricket against the Australia/ India series 2011-12, trying to work out if the game they love has a future along the way.
We are currently in post-production, having edited down some 160 hours of footage into a rough cut from which we hope to have something to show people by early 2013.
We hope that Death of a Gentleman will be both a balanced piece of journalism and an entertaining film that adds to the debate on Test cricket’s future, and appeals to cricket fans and non-cricket fans alike. Names we’ve canvassed include Rahul Dravid, Andrew Strauss, Giles Clarke, N Srinivasan, Lalit Modi, Haroon Lorgat, Dave Richardson, Mike Atherton, Mike Brearley, Ian Chappell, Mark Nicholas and Michael Holding. We’ve also been lucky enough to get a genuine insight into the life of a Test cricketer, following Australia’s Ed Cowan through his debut Test series. Think a sporting Enron with added heart.
We’re still looking for funding and investment,so if you’d like to donate or invest please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll give you information on what you’ll get in return.
Here are two further short tastes of what we have done so far from back in January:
