What a ride this Kickstarter mullarkey has been, I can't tell you how far this small success has gone towards rejuvenating our belief in The Stagg Do/ Pissheads story world - but actually it's restored my LOVE of filmmaking. When we shot this film in 2011, I never thought I'd still be dealing with its release in 2015. Every step of the way has been a battle: against circumstance, people who think they know best; but don't, lack of money and total indifference from the local press. I could go on - but I don't need to - it's all documented (not in the goriest of detail, but enough) in the pages of this blog. I'm a skeptic and an atheist but at times I've really felt this film is cursed - I hope I'm not tempting fate when I say that doing this Kickstarter has lifted the clouds of doom from my napper.
So thank you all, firstly for your support and your contributions - both financial and in terms of sharing, liking, commenting and of course just cheering us on from the sidelines - we appreciate it all. Secondly and probably more importantly for rekindling my love of filmmaking and AUTHENTIC GEORDIE CINEMA.
Hopefully we will see you soon at a screening in your neck of the woods or at the Official DVD Launch in November.

Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
