"Fight as you would love. The best fighter is never angry!"
DB Morgan's highly anticipated 2nd feature film, Morris Men, is certainly making waves in the UK MMA, Parkour, Strongman and Morris Dancing realms! But how could it not? Ninja, kick-ass Morris Men (and Women), taking care of underworld crime the authorities can't.
We are on track to shoot the feature in Clacton-on-Sea in Spring (or Autumn) 2021, with full clearances from Tendring District Council for our shooting locations, talent identified and ready to attach. 65% of our budget is already in place by sponsorships, capital and in-kind investment. We have some of the UK's highest profile MMA fighters, Martial Arts champions and UK Stongman competitors eager to jump on set with us, together with rampant support from many of the UK's highest profile Morris dancing sides, who recognise our mission to preserve a vital slice of British heritage within our film.
Just with growing social media pledges alone, sales agents and distributors will find it hard to ignore our little British urban vengeance movie with... (as of 7th August 2020)
a current social media reach of just under 1.8 million supporters.
#ALLEQUAL Our pledge is:
* To create a respectable film of British cultural meaning
* Respecting and promoting the British heritage of Morris dance
* Promoting inclusivity and diversity
* Promoting female empowerment
* Showcasing the thrilling pursuits of Martial arts, Parkour and dance
* Promoting mind, body and spiritual wellbeing
* Making a KICK-ASS Urban Vengeance movie

MEET OUR LEADING LADY - Leona Clarke
Trained in Boxing, Muai Thai, Thai and traditional kickboxing, Leona is currently working hard in the gym on her Jui-Jitsu ground game and Crav Maga techniques.
"There’s something so liberating in feeling strong and powerful - like you’re invincible. And being naturally slim in stature, I’ve always been called a “stick” and “a little weakling”; never quite taken seriously, which only fuelled the fire and my love for the martial arts. So when Dom came to me with his idea for Morris Men... I absolutely could not resist. Every part of the storyline appealed to me. English Heritage is such an important thing to preserve and DB has managed to combine an ancient tradition with one of the world’s most popular sports, thereby peaking the interests of the masses. As I’ll be working alongside World Champion Martial Artists on this project, I’m training hard at the gym as well as having signed up to weekly classes in MMA, Jiujitsu and Boxing, to really focus on my fighting styles and techniques. I can’t wait to not only improve myself and my skill set in so many ways, but to show the world never to underestimate people solely based on their appearance."
We are currently seeking industry affiliated investors, brand sponsors and product placement deals. We are offering percentages of NET revenue, clear and consistent brand visibility, walk-on extras and cameo roles in the film. All investors and core sponsors get free VIP tickets to the UK premiere. All top level sponsors have their branding clearly visible throughout the UK premiere venue, together with logo'd adverts before the film and opportunities for DVD extras profiling on the DVD and Blu-Ray release.
All information and contact details are on the final page of the 'Sizzle pack'.
