On Friday the 27th of March ‘The Quickener’ [with a new, improved sound mix] will be available to watch on Vimeo.
If you’ve been dying to see our one-of-a-kind medieval drama, the wait is almost over. I’ll be sending out little reminders over the next weeks.
Now that our film festival run is finished I’m looking forward to making it very easy to watch and hearing responses from people all over the place.

This evening I had the pleasure of showing our film at Catalyst Festival, a church network worship, encouragement and family festival in Stoneleigh Park, southeast of Birmingham.
The film has probably never sounded so good! The response was very positive from the 90 or so audience members. I really appreciated the Q&A time. The caliber of questions was fantastic. Afterwards I also met various folks including a medieval scholar who dug it and some rappers who equally dug it. Someone called the film a ‘pioneering piece of work’ and ‘inspiring’.
The other film shown on the night was ‘FATUM’, a collaboration between David Sorley (Boxhead) and Liam Thatcher (an elder at ChristChurch London). You can watch this cracking short HERE:
Thank you everybody who came to the screening – it was a great night.

This time we’ll experience a trailer of sorts. As well as ‘The Quickener’ [30mins.] there will also be the premiere screening of Michael Stork’s music video ‘The Abyss’. Michael, who’s an incredible lyricist and songwriter, plays the part of villain in ‘The Quickener’.
After the screening there will be a Q&A with the director and some medieval goodies.
It’s only £3 in! You can buy tickets on the door – if you wish, let me know how many tickets you want reserved and I’ll have them for you – email me at joelthecustodian [at] gmail.com

The next screening of ‘The Quickener’ is on Saturday the 16th of November at 3pm at the Hive in Worcester.
The film will be competing for Best Medium/Feature Film selected by the jury and as well as Audience Award.
Yes, they’re here. The Quickener T-shirt was one of the perks of the Indiegogo campaign. Those of you who really gave a considerable amount to the film will be getting one.
I’m delighted with the design by my friend George Aytoun and with the quality of the shirts AND the print. Sharp white type on Chocolate Brown.
More post-production news very soon.
