A Liverpool film company, Tabacula, have turned to the fans of LFC to help release their latest film.

Walk On is a documentary that chronicles the story of how the crowd at Anfield took the song to its heart and in doing so transformed the sound of football, signaling the start of a new terrace culture.

Fifty years later and in the same year that Bill Shankly would have marked his 100th birthday, Tabacula Films have produced a documentary charting the history of why Liverpool fans picked this song as their anthem and how the song has now spread the world over, sung in both defeat and victory. Director Ian Lysaght, an Evertonian, says: “Whichever team you support, you know the song – it’s now a worldwide phenomenon.”

The documentary is presented by Kelly Cates and the film features Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard, Kenny Dalglish and Jamie Carragher plus Liverpool Legends from the 60s, fans, musicians and many others.
Tabacula are using Kickstarter – a web-based way of getting creative projects independently funded. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. It’s a unique approach to getting the film to the fans.  Producer Jah Jussa says: “If we don’t make the target, the film will not be released in the near future.”

Co-Producer Dave Kirby chips in: “The only way we can now get this film out, in order to celebrate 50 remarkable years of the singing of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” by football fans across the world, is by self distributing the film and showing the big corporations that we are no longer dependent on them. We have to skip the middle man. We know that the fans want to see this film.”

Go to which will redirect you to Kickstarter, register and pledge.  It’s as simple as that.  A pledge of £10 will get you a DVD if the total is reached. However, no money will be taken until the full total is reached.
