Rambo actor and film producer James With has been battling the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, as well as a few rodents and gutter dwellers, spewing bile and misleading information about him and his film projects.

Filming “All the Tired Horses’ aka “Dead Parrots Down” Under Behind-the-scenes

One such project is “All the Tired Horses” which fell foul Down Under in Australia; it’s worth reading the backstory and on-going efforts on why this project is still seeking funding due to poultry-like, inept legal actions. Despite prevailing and winning the battle in court, basically ending a long-running lead up to trial, the project unfortunately lost valuable production funding, that was essentially wasted by the court and its unscrupulous appointed liquidator, who refused to acknowledge claims submitted by the producers and crew members.

With a newly revised screenplay titled “Dead Parrots Down Under” and careful assessment on how to splice early film footage that was shot on location in Australia a decade ago, with newly developed scenes designed to be shot in an Asian film studio and close backlot areas, the producers are keen to secure a modest investment from a private investor to combine with support from post-production facilities.

Despite the setbacks, the experienced team are determined to create film magic. Director of Photography Steve Rice and James With have continued their collaboration over the years, which started with their meeting in Perth, Western Australia for “All the Tired Horses“. Writer Robert Hart worked as a senior technician on “All the Tired Horses” and has collaborated in the writing processes for “I Belong to the Shadows” and “Once Man’s Leica“, both projects in development.

There’s an old saying that goes ‘you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink’, an adage and throwback to why the project has been delayed, and yet is still in production.
