The End of the Game

DSC09927

The last few months I’ve been editing a feature documentary by award-winning director David Graham Scott for Hopscotch Films.

The End of the Game is a compelling character study of a bizarre eccentric undertaking his last big game hunt in Africa.

A committed vegan, David follows 73-year-old colonial relic Guy Wallace to South Africa as he fulfils a lifelong ambition to bag a cape buffalo. It’s Guy’s last chance to relive his glory days and finally lay down his guns.

The oddball relationship between David and Guy is the central drive of the film as the director explores the ethics of big game hunting and questions his own animal rights stance when lured in by the thrill of the hunt.

Guy is cut from the same mold as Molly Dineen’s central character in her 1987 classic Home from the Hill: a man out of time and out of place. Watch this space for more info.
