Andy served as lead historical consultant for Steven Spielberg’s War Horse film. For a light-hearted, entertaining, behind-the-scenes experience of the film why not book Andy for his ‘The Making of War Horse‘ talks, as listed on the Events page. Andy also acted as historical adviser on the 2017 film, Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine.
The 16 of October 2018 saw the premiere of Sir Peter Jackson’s film “They Shall Not Grow Old” as part of the 62nd British Film Institute’s London Film Festival. For the past year Andy has been working on the annotation of this film which has been produced with arts organisation 14-18NOW to mark the centenary of the First World War. It uses previously unseen footage held by the Imperial War Museum. A copy of the film is being sent to all secondary schools and the film was shown simultaneously in selected cinemas across the UK on 16 October. It has also been shown on BBC2.
Andy has an extensive collection of World War One props and uniforms, both British and German, for hire for film, television, amateur dramatic groups or school projects. Rates are negotiable. Contact Andy at – firstname.lastname@example.org – for details.
