REVELATION FILMS ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE DEAL WITH FORMER METROPOLITAN POLICE DETECTIVE AND WRITER OF THE BOOK ‘MANHUNT’, COLIN SUTTON

 

Revelation Films is delighted to announce an exclusive deal with former Metropolitan Police detective turned writer Colin Sutton whose book Manhunt was adapted for a television series starring Martin Clunes, becoming ITV’s most successful drama of 2019.

 

The deal will launch with a 10-part true crime documentary series, The Real Manhunter, currently in pre-production. The series will be comprised of 10 standalone episodes in which Sutton will take the viewer through his casebooks, dealing with one per episode. He will guide us through the crimes with access to the investigation reports and previously unreleased information, taking us to the locations and showing us exactly how he was able to get enough evidence to secure convictions. Each episode will also feature interviews with journalists who covered the cases, former police officers, friends and relatives of the victims plus archive news material.

Revelation Films’ Trevor Drane says:

“We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with Colin and to bring some of his most testing cases to life for the viewing public with first hand, authentic recollections from the man himself. The first series will hit the screens in 2020, at the same time as his second book The Night Stalker about the Delroy Grant case is published.”

 

Colin Sutton says:

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to tell these stories in detail like never before, and it is exciting to be making the films with a company with such an excellent record as Revelation".

 

About Colin Sutton

Following in the footsteps of both his father and great-grandfather, Colin Sutton became a PC at the age of 21 and worked his way up through the ranks both in the Greater London area and in Yorkshire. In 2002, he returned to the Metropolitan Police as Detective Chief Inspector/Senior Investigating Officer, a role which he held until his retirement in 2011.

 

Throughout his career, Sutton worked on several high profile and complex cases and is credited with solving the murder of Milly Dowler, which he considers to be one of his greatest achievements. His work on the Levi Bellfield case earned him a Commendation for ‘exceptional leadership, detective ability, perseverance and dedication to duty’.

 

Now retired from his police career, Colin lives with his wife and 3 dogs in East Anglia where he is finally able to enjoy his love of cars, motorsport and his beloved Tottenham Hotspur. Unable to resist the pull of his lifetime’s work, he currently writes and appears on TV as a pundit/presenter on crime.

This is not a film about motorcycles, it's a film about motorcycle people.

 

The philosophy of individualism is embedded in motorcycling. The desire to be different and unique, is at the root of the motorcyclist's imagination. Modifying, customising, and changing bikes is at the very heart of the biker. Custom motorcycle culture has experienced a renaissance in recent years, and what was once a niche subculture now bears a significant influence on the international mainstream motorcycle industry.

 

Filmed over three years, Oil In The Blood features interviews with almost 300 bike builders, riders, journalists, artists and racers from Britain, Europe, Japan, Australia, the Far East, Africa and the US alongside major manufactures Harley Davidson, Yamaha, Royal Enfield, Ducati and BMW.

The very heartbeat of motorcycle culture has been brought together for the very first time in this brand new documentary film.

Coming to DVD and Blu-ray this October! Order your copy now!

The Time Tunnel NOW ON BLU-RAY

05 Nov 2017

We're delighted to announce that Irwin Allen's The Time Tunnel is now available to buy on Blu-ray in the UK!

This stunning new release of The Time Tunnel is produced from HD digital restoration masters created from the original negatives to ensure the best visual experience available. The seven-disc collector’s Blu-ray edition features every episode in original broadcast order with a brand new 5.1 surround sound mix, alongside the original mono audio.

From the creative genius of Irwin Allen comes one of the most popular and original sci-fi shows of the 1960s, starring James Darren and Robert Colbert! “The control of time is potentially the most valuable treasure that man will ever find.” Or so believe the scientists of Project Tic Toc.

 

Located beneath the Arizona desert, the ten-year project’s focus is the feasibility of time travel. But when the government reconsiders the project, the scientists have only 24 hours to prove their untested ‘Time Tunnel’ will actually work. Determined to save the project, Dr. Tony Newman and Dr. Doug Phillips go through the tunnel – and quickly find themselves catapulted from one historical event to another, barely escaping with their lives as their colleagues back in Arizona race to figure out a way to bring them back home.

IRISH GANGSTERS

10 Aug 2017

We're so happy to report that we completed a week of filming in Ireland last week for Irish Gangsters: Faces Of The Underworld. Due to the subject matter, it was a tough shoot but we have some really great interviews in the can and we think the final version will be something really powerful.

There were lots of standout moments but the funniest had to be when former Irish prime minister Enda Kenny rocked up on his bicycle while we were filming an interview on the street. Many selfies were taken!

Irish Gangsters will be premiering on TV3 in Ireland. We'll let you all know when dates are confirmed.

OIL IN THE BLOOD

01 Jun 2017

Revelation Films is delighted to be working with MoliMetro Entertainment on brand new documentary series, Oil In The Blood.

Directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, the series charts the rapidly growing global subculture movement of custom bike building.

The last two years have witnessed an explosion in motorcycle culture. A generation no longer forced into study under the auspice of a guaranteed rosy future were effectively set free to create, make and build their way out of economic turmoil, creating custom motorcycles unlike those ever seen before.

What began as swell soon gathered momentum, carrying with it a virtual portfolio of exemplary craftsmanship previously unseen by the masses. The scene is counter-cultural, championed by many as a rejection of the big corporations. Through nostalgia tinted spectacles, it looks to the romance of motorcycling as a visceral, tactile pursuit, where bikers get their hands dirty, maintain and tune their own bikes, and need to have skills to ride a bike. This has grown as a grass-roots movement driven by people rather than corporations. 

Where will it go? Have we witnessed its glory days, will it become like punk, a weak parody of itself rinsed for every last penny? Or will it develop as a resilient and sustainable movement that sits at the cutting edge of mainstream motorcycle culture, exerting a measured and appropriate influence that ensures the future of the motorcycle industry?

Oil In The Blood will ask these questions to those drive the culture - the builders, the riders, the artists, the photographers, the curators; the people who make the scene. It will explore the rich historical traditions that have collided and combined to create the phenomena, navigate the current creative landscape, and question what the future holds…

LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION!

This week has been super exciting for us. We headed over to East London for a shoot with the lovely Murray Melvin for the Starhunter project... and what a joy it was to work with him.

We can't say too much for now, only that the project is looking great. If you liked the originals, you will LOVE what is happening now.
