Back This! Special: Tribute to Brian Clemens – Help ‘Surgery’ get finalised

by Stuart Wright

Welcome to the latest edition of our regular crowdfunding feature here on Nerdly – Back This! – where we take a look at some of the cool content taking the crowdfunding route on sites such as Indiegogo, Sponsume and Kickstarter. This edition we’re spotlighting a very special crowdfunding campaign which is also a tribute to well-known and well-respected film and TV screenwriter Brian Clemens…


The horror short Surgery was the title of the last script to involve the great British TV and film screenwriter Brian Clemens before he sadly passed away in January 2015. His sons George and Samuel, in tribute to their late father, have shot Surgery and want to invite you to help them raise the £4,000 needed to cover the post-production, CGI and film festival costs.

For those genre fans who’ve been living in a cave for the last 50 years or are just a little too young to have caught Brian Clemens name when he was at his peak, he was the mastermind behind a number of TV classics such as: The Avengers, The New Avengers and The Professionals as well as other classics such as the Thriller, Adam Adamant Lives and The Persuaders.

George and Samuel told Britflicks.com‘s podcast it is believed he holds the world record for number of produced feature film screenplays. His IMDb list is huge and includes: The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, Hammer Horror films, Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter and Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde, And Soon the Darkness, Highlander 2 and Disney’s Watcher In The Woods… We’ve barely scratched the surface here.

You’ll be honouring a true legend of the small and big screen. And for one lucky person, with a bit more disposable cash than most, there’s a chance get one of Brian Clemens typewriters for your pledge. If you think you can spare £1 or more please visit the Clemens Brothers crowdfunding site, before the end of May 2015, at https://phundee.com/reward/campaign/surgery-1
