Cauldron of Changes

The most powerful range of occult forces in the world is poised to do battle to possess the mythical Cauldron of Cerridwen. To win the battle Owen Winter must accept his Pagan heritage and lead a coven of goths, misfits, fellow students and Romanian mystics into a war of dark magic. Whoever possesses the Cauldron of Cerridwen possesses the power to save or to destroy the world.

Sam wrote a number of treatments and scripts for this TV project. Visit the site for Cauldron of Changes to see costume designs and other materials. (Please note that some of the links on the Cauldron site refer to sites that are no longer active.)

Ultimately the production company involved withdrew at a late stage. Sam is still keen to take the project forward with input from the right people.
