We have changed the name. Originally it was called "Last Riders of the Burragorang". I liked this title but no one seemed to be able to say it or remember it even. We were pushing the proverbial up the hill. Some of my friends had jokingly called the project "The Man from Coxs River' in reference of course to the famous Banjo Patterson poem.
It wasn't until I went on a 3 day horse odyssey with Luke up to visit his family plaque near Kanangra Walls on the Cox's River that I realised it actually was the perfect title for the film.
This film is Luke's story.
Although there are some other wonderful characters in the film- Norma Carlon, Jason Carlon ,Adam Boyd, Chris Banffy, Takao Suzuki and Steve Mills, this really is one mans journey out of the past and into the future.
It's about adapting to your environment and doggedly achieving the near impossible.
It's about being wild and free and how hard that is in our modern world.
Im sure the film wont please every one.
We seek only to record the story as we found it.
People have differing opinions on the Brumbies of the Burragorang.
We'll show them to you and you can make up your own mind.
We believe this is an important story.
We've spent a good part of 3 years so far making it so it'd better be.
We look forward to sharing it with you.
