In the middle of last year I wrote about getting the opportunity to contribute, in a small way, with Matthew and Tori Butler-Hart’s latest project…Dagr. Well, just this week I had an email from Matthew which had some great news…there will be a UK limited cinema release next month followed by a digital release in North America, Australia and New Zealand later in the spring. I’ve also had a sneak peek at a screener version but can’t review it just yet for legal reasons. I will say that it is a real thrill seeing your name in the credits!
What is Dagr?
Dagr is a comedy horror in the found footage sub-genre. Louise and Thea are wannabe YouTube superstars. They disguise themselves as caterers to a film crew making an advert in order to plant hidden cameras to get footage they can use for their own project. Unfortunately, they find something rather unsettling…
Behind The Camera
Matthew Butler-Hart is the director. The outline script was written by Matthew and Tori Butler-Hart but the cast were encouraged to improvise and, consequently, get co-writing credits. Executive producers are Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill, Lord of the Rings and X-Men star Ian McKellen and theatre producing legend Anthony Pye-Jeary.
There is a limited UK cinema release but it will be available on line from 2nd April 2024.
