Hi there

Would love some feedback on Treasure of the Templars, shot in California, France and Scotland on an ultra low/no budget. Visit the site to download the opening 5 minutes.

Ooo! Another fan-film.

Downloading now, to watch tonight. :cool:

Yes another fan film - but we tried to make this on as big a scale as we possibly could so hopefully more than just a fanfilm. :)

That was pretty good! :cool:

That Helga-chick with the pigtails is kinda

Lucky for Indy all those people were such bad shots. That a lot of ammo they went through.

How long is the whole thing going to be?

It will probably be about an hour and hlaf when completed. We will also be reshooting a bit of the desert opening you just saw to tidy it up a little and to allow for a few script changes later on.

For over two years now - Ken Gawne, a student from Dundee University has been working on a fan-film that takes place before Spielberg's epic trilogy. Treasure of the Templars is a low-budget production that has been shot in California, Scotland & Paris. You can learn more about the production at the website; .

However, I am of course here to promote some clips! You can watch the opening five minutes* here;
(55mb .zip file containing divx avi)

*Note - this uses music from The Mummy as it is a work in progress.

Or the little 22 minute "web edition" documentary I shot behind the scenes. There is no narration, but see what you think :)
(14mb .wmv file, lower quality)

The cinematic trailer for this production is expected within the next couple of months, so keep an eye out! Anyway, I hope you enjoy these clips for now :)


PS - I really enjoyed the Staff of Ra fan-film intro clip! I will write some comments in the thread asap, but you have a great Indy [Ken, Indy in ToT will be dubbed] & some awesome locations! :)

Saw this when it was first posted and forgot to comment on it.

Wow. It's been mentioned that the best fan films take the characters in new directions and place them in new, but not entirely unfamiliar, situations. I think this one does that so far.

I'm wondering if you plan on dubbing Indy's line with an American accent? I think that might throw some viewers off when he first talks.

Yeah - Indy should NOT have a Northern Irish accent! :)

The actopr has the mannerisms down, but the accent did throw me.

By the way, loved the cinematography.

The director, Jonathan Lawrence, is super talented and also one of the nicest people I have ever met. He has been making films for decades and knows his stuff inside out. We were so fortunate to have him

Yes. Looks spectacular. Good little sequence there!
Nice to know Indianana Jones is getting the fan films he deserves!

Indiana Nana! Ken - when is the cinematic trailer being released?
