Daddy Cross - The Ten Commandments

London, United Kingdom
FUNDED

What is this?

‘Daddy Cross’ is an attempt to recreate the golden era of British exploitation where the streets of Soho ran with blood.

Focusing on the murderous rampage of a deluded, confused and clearly angry priest named Father Macguire (aka 'Daddy Cross') ; the shorts try to keep as close to the style and content of the original British exploitation films which we all love and cherish as much as possible.

Spread over 10 months, ‘Daddy Cross’ presents 10 vignettes based on the 10 commandments, with each short each having a unique story to tell in a varied and colourful period style.

‘Daddy Cross’ is also an attempt to explore British exploitation lore as well as re-unite modern audiences with some of the talent and styles from the period.

In short, ‘Daddy Cross’ is a love letter dedicated to a sometimes underappreciated and forgotten genre of British film history.

Who are we?

Evrim Ersoy, James Pearcey and Russell Would have two serious loves: exploitation and filmmaking.
The combination of these two elements has come together in the form of ‘Daddy Cross’.

Although under the banner fo Ne’er Do Well Films the trio juggle all the possible jobs amongst themselves, their basic roles are as follows.

Armed with an endless love for film and a desire to write Evrim works in making sure whatever ends up on the screen is as loyal to the period as possible. He hopes that ‘Daddy Cross’ will be appreciated by the people who love the genre and may even make one or two others laugh.

James’ background in production have helped ease the technical processes through and helps to make sure that any money being spent is being spent in the right places and that everyone gets to the right place at the right time. He also steps behind the camera from time to time to make sure the look of the film is as arresting as it can be.

Russell is a producer, a writer, an actor AND the brains behind the post-production process. When not wearing his Parish outfit, he can be found in his office obsessing over the smallest dirt-stains to apply on the frames as well as arguing for more crap jokes to be inserted into the film. Most of the time he loses.

The trio are supported by a network of other creative people: musicians, artists, writers, directors but most importantly genre fans who come out to help with the look, feel, sound and direction of each episode.

What are we after?

We’re after your support to help finish the ‘restoration’ project in a number of ways.

The first and most obvious way is financially: we have created a number of tiers at which you can donate and each of them has a cool piece of memorabilia as a way of showing our gratitude for your support..  From badges to props to a one of a kind painting our goal is to make sure you get something to remember ‘Daddy Cross’ by and know how much your involvement is appreciated (postage to Mainland UK is included, international will have to be added/arranged).

Secondly we are also after your assistance to help spread the word around as much as possible.
You can connect with us online in a variety of ways and we would appreciate any recommendations to friends, family, colleagues and anyone you think may enjoy ‘Daddy Cross’.

Additionally as we hit our financial targets we'll be uploading entertaining items both new and old from the 'Daddy Cross' archives to say thank you to our supporters.
