WORK & LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE
Ongoing Sandow www.sandowthemovie.com
Producer / Actor / Casting Director
I am aiming to produce a film called 'Sandow' and am currently fundraising. Eugen Sandow was a renowned bodybuilder who featured in a series of three 1894 silent short films. My film is about an impressionable Launceston Elliot, who comes under the spell of the iconic Sandow The Magnificent. He seeks out his idol and becomes his protιgι. Sandow is to be played by Andrei Lenart. I hope to shoot significant parts in the Stamford area. 'Sandow' is not intended to be a run-of-the-mill independent film. The project has much in common with period films like Gatsby, and iconic sports films like Rocky and Chariots of Fire with its strong connection to sports, bodybuilding, Crossfit and the Olympic Games. www.sandowthemovie.com
