War Horse is a thrilling and spectacular production based on the celebrated novel by Michael Morpurgo. Winner of Olivier, Evening Standard and Critics' Circle Awards, it has captured the hearts and minds of everyone that goes to see it; children and adults alike. Phil Grabsky and David Bickerstaff have been invited by the National Theatre to film the intricate process of putting on this extraordinary production, as it makes its way from the National Theatre to the West End and beyond.
With exclusive access to the actors who work these astonishing life-sized puppets, we learn exactly how the internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company make these animals come to life. Throughout the film, director and creator, Michael Morpurgo gives us candid insights into his inspiration for this production as we film him at his home in Devon, surrounded by the fields that he drew his creativity from. This film will be more than just a behind-the-scenes documentary; it will be visually stunning and shot entirely in HD, will bring the magic of this extraordinary puppetry to the big screen. Phil Grabsky and David Bickerstaff's filming style is poetic and delves beyond the surface, revealing the passion and determination involved to make this production the success that it is.
