Lightbulb co-founders Peter Thompson and Matthew Kreuze said they were thrilled that they could be part of Burning Men. They wanted to be part of this feature since the beginning and said that Jeremy Wooding has a unique way of making films.[6]


The actors helped him so the film could be seen with a younger sensibility. The film was made into a person camera point of view, the actors have a forward-pointing camera mounted on a helmet so viewers share their moving point of view.[7]


The movie premiered in London.[5] The trailer as well as the poster were released on January 2019.[8] The film was released on 1 March 2019. Lightbulb gave it a limited theatrical run in February 2019, in collaboration with marketing and distribution agency Munro Films.[6] The director Jeremy Wooding as well as Edward Hayter and Elinor Crawley appeared live on TV on London Live on September 28 2019.


Critical responses

Lightbulb co-founders Peter Thompson and Matthew Kreuzer stated "Burning Men is a British road-movie with a beating heart and a banging soundtrack”.[6] The reviewer of Screenanarchy stated "Burning Men is a bravura piece of film-making – a rare portrait of today’s England – from the urban hustle of London, to the eerie East Anglian fens and the desolate Northumbrian moors"[8]
