Cowritten by former Royal Engineer Matthew Weston. ‘Thin, Brittle, Mile’ the Joining Forces Campaign’s first planned feature, tells the story of a young soldier whose greatest battles are fought on his return home.
Matthew, along with several other former servicemen poured their harrowing experiences and personal struggles into a screenplay that has the potential to become an unforgettable film.
The documentary ‘Fires we’re Starting…’ will follow our endeavours to bring our various initiatives to the industry’s attention and demonstrate a sustainable model which could be pivotal in allowing extraordinary talent to come to light.
We aim to prove that filmmakers themselves can find the solutions to the main problems we currently face; lack of opportunity, exploitation, marketing, funding and distribution.
‘Little by little one walks far.’
