Our first project goes live - Boudica!

Greenlit's first project, the historical drama Boudica has finally gone live. The short, proof-of-concept film has launched for crowdfunding, with the campaign ending on April 16th., with an expected shoot date in early June.

The driving force behind the film is writer-producer Anna Ruben, who's seeking to recast the Iceni warrior queen as a very contemporary heroine. Anna says, "She's the whole package - warrior, mother, inspirational leader - but who was she really? We know how her story ended, but we don't know how it began. There's a lot of action in the film, but we're trying to go beyond the genre and explore Boudica's psychology and motivations".

Writer-Producer Anna Ruben

Anna is a well-known and respected actress in her own right, and has assembled a high-quality cast and crew to bring the project to life. The project is to be directed by the award-winning director Giles Alderson, known for his documentaries and historic dramas, as well as being the host and producer of the Filmmakers' Podcast.
