Bludgeon: A documentary about a medieval combat competition

From Saturday Morning, 9:40 am on 30 June 2018

Andy Deere and Ryan Heron have been friends since childhood, and they both work in advertising. In addition, they've been making their own film projects together for a decade, including a short film Return, which was accepted into competition at numerous international festivals and won best screenplay at the 2015 Show Me Shorts festival. A short film pitch created by the pair, called Bludgeon and chronicling a NZ national medieval combat competition, was selected to be made into a Loading Docs short documentary in 2016, and from that, a feature-length documentary by the same name (Bludgeon: Orcas of the Land) developed, and will play at the upcoming New Zealand International Film Festival, details here.
