THE TEST CRICKET DOCUMENTARY

Death of a Gentleman

JANUARY 2015

Death of a Gentleman is an independent documentary film about the future of cricket, directed and produced by two cricket journalists, Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber. We have spent the last three years interviewing the biggest names in the game and following a crucial period in cricket’s history, culminating in the restructuring of the International Cricket Council in 2014. We hope that the film will go some way towards helping ensure the future of this great game.

We are delighted that the film is being produced in association with Dartmouth Films, who under the leadership of Christopher Hird produce documentaries that aim to make a difference. Dartmouth have previously been responsible for films like the acclaimed The End of the Line (2009), and Still the Enemy Within (2014).

Death of a Gentleman is being edited by David Fairhead, who cut the BAFTA-nominated McCullin (2012) and the Sundance Award-Winning In the Shadow of the Moon (2007).

We are in the process of finishing our post-production, and hope the film will premiere in the summer of 2015.

We are still looking for investment, so if you would like to see a business plan and hear what terms we can offer please get in touch at deathofagentlemanfilm@gmail.com. In the meantime spread the word and keep following our twitter @doagfilm for updates.

In the meantime we hope you enjoy this promotional video for Death of a Gentleman – featuring Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Lalit Modi, Giles Clarke, N Srinivasan, Ian Chappell, Rahul Dravid, Andrew Wildblood, Mark Nicholas and Eddie Cowan, and commentary from Jim Maxwell.

This video was made in 2012 to show to distributors and potential investors as we started raising money to finish the film. If you are interested in helping us please contact deathofagentlemanfilm@gmail.com
