Dave McLean brings the story of his early life to the screen in the new film, Schemers – and here’s the trailer.

Premiering at the Raindance Film Festival in London this month is Schemers, a brand new movie from director Dave McLean, that he also co-wrote (along with extra material from Khaled Spiewak and Kyle Titterton).

It’s a film based on McLean’s early life growing up in Dundee, when he started booking bands whilst still in his teens. McLean would go on to work with the likes of Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, Green Day and more, and the film of his early years stars Conor Berry, Sean Connor, Grant R Keelan and Tara Lee.

Here’s a trailer for the movie…

The movie is playing at Raindance in London on Wednesday 25th September. When we get further release details, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, we’ll finish off with the film’s synopsis…

Set in Dundee c. 1979, Schemers is based on writer-producer David McLean’s early years in the music business. A fledgling promoter, he ambitiously booked bands with his friends John and Scot, all of them from the Dundee schemes. Young Davie (Conor Berry) is determined not to get a ‘real’ job. He starts out running discos and, after a run in with a local gangster, raises his ambitions to booking major bands such as Iron Maiden. Shot in and around Dundee using local talent, Schemers celebrates youthful ambition.
