Unique Making of Zulu film & Storyboards
ZuluFilmStore owns the only known copy in world of The Making of Zulu - 25 minutes of behind the scenes footage shot on location in Natal in 1963. Please Contact Us if you’re interested in a screening or would like to license any footage.
We also own the storyboards for the film. They consist of 30 panels, created in watercolours and ink, illustrating the Attack on the Hospital. It was the only sequence to be storyboarded as it involved stuntwork with real fire (no CGI effects here).
We have created a POSTER to illustrate all the storyboards - available to buy here.
We are also offering original film material and all things Zulu when available - please check our "Memorabilia For Sale" pages.
Zulu is constantly appearing in "Best Films of All Time" lists around the world, and was recently voted the "Best War Film of all Time" by the British Army.
