We’re about halfway through the edit and I’m delighted with progress.
Here’s the link to the latest trailer we’ve created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXccRemUGbo
I think it gives you a pretty good snapshot of the quality of the program.
We’re also extremely happy with the RSL clubs’ response on screenings.
To date, we have more than 50 clubs (and counting) that have committed to screening the doco on either 29th or 30th August (75 years from the Battle for Isurava).
They’ll charge $10 a head to their members and friends and all proceeds will go to the Kokoda Track Foundation to help the descendants of the Fuzzy Fuzzy Angels in PNG.
Garrie Gibson and Brad Smith from the RSL & Services Clubs Association are leading this outreach and they're confident they’ll have at least 50 clubs committed to the screenings.
Our plan is to honour our commitment to the Diggers and their families with these screenings and then to explore the commercial possibilities for the film.
The completed film is likely to run about 90 minutes so it would be an excellent two-part special for one of the networks or the many other cable and streaming options.
