The true story of how a chance interview turned into a long-term project to fulfil the dreams of ninety-two-year-old WW2 Royal Marine Commando, Ted Owens. Follow Ted’s journey from his remote coastal home in West Wales, to numerous commando barracks, where he investigates what life is like for the modern day commando; and re-discovers a sense of comradery that’s only grown stronger over time.
Fine Rolling Media put on a sold-out premiere screening of “Royal” in Ted’s hometown. Guest of honour Ted was welcomed at the premiere as he saw the finished documentary for the first time.
We wanted to gather the community together in this unique event, to pay our respects to our hero Ted Owens. The night was topped off with a stunning painting of Ted by The VC Gallery. This screening wouldn’t have been possible without our partners in the community sector “The Darwin Centre.”
