Our 2014 WWI film “Tell Them of Us”, is the true story of one Lincolnshire family, made to commemorate the outbreak of WWI.

One story remained untold however; what happened to William Crowder at the front which resulted in him receiving the Distinguished Service Order. The DSO was awarded to an officer for acts of gallantry under attack; so what exactly happened to William? Fortunately we have an account and it is one of the most arresting and visually compelling of any narrative I have read.

We plan to make a documentary of William’s story and hope to raise enough money to dramatise the events that resulted in him receiving the DSO. Recreating these events will be extraordinary, but costly. So we will be launching a new Kickstarter fundraiser soon and we are looking into other fundraising options as well. The more we can raise the more we can do!
