Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! Today my special guest is filmmaker Darren Wilson and we'll be discussing his new film The Greatest Fight, which tells the story of UFC fighting legend Ken Shamrock.
About The Film:
He’s a founding father of the UFC. He was a superstar in the WWF. But for Ken Shamrock, the end of his fighting career is imminent. Filmmaker Darren Wilson was allowed unprecedented access into Ken’s world as he fought what were thought to be his final three fights, but along the way, a larger story emerged—one where a man’s total identity is being changed. Raw, honest, and unpredictable, this film six years in the making captures the passion, desire and ultimate hope of one of the most misunderstood fighters of all time.

About The Filmmaker:
Darren founded Wanderlust Productions in 2006 when he started stumbling through his first feature film, Finger of God. Later, he decided to surround himself with people who were more talented than him to help create his next features, Furious Love and Father of Lights, but of course he takes all the credit for their great work. Since then, Darren has created The Greatest Fight, with UFC/WWF superstar Ken Shamrock, and the two films Holy Ghost (2014) & Holy Ghost: Reborn (2015). Darren’s job description includes creating the stories, speaking and showing off the films, doing lots of interviews, planning all the shoots, and schmoozing with awesome people around the world. Charisma Magazine recently named him one of the “21 Emerging Leaders of Tomorrow’s Church”, and DeVon Franklin, VP of Production at Columbia Pictures calls him “one of the most innovative filmmakers and authors of faith today.” He has a wonderful and long-suffering wife, Jenell, and three wonderful children, Serenity, Stryder, and River. He also has two cats (meh) and the best dogs in the world, Moses and Maui.
