Andrew Gower and Stephen Walters have been working fervently, when not on acting and music projects, and a documentary called Humpty Dumpty. It’s a documentary about the Mersey Beat music scene in Liverpool. It’s a story featuring Tommy Quickly, a lesser known musician of the same scene that the Beatles and Jerry and the Pacemakers came out of.
Tommy’s story took a very different path from his peers, and musicians and actors Andrew and Stephan rand a successful fundraiser. There will be some original songs by Andrew and Stephan for the track. This past week, production wrapped and it’s being edited and ready to show at film festivals.
