Waking Up In Birmingham’ is a film about James Simpson, a former soldier and wheelchair Rugby League World Champion.
Last summer in the lead up to the Rugby League World Cup, Pete Banks made three films for Reign Body Fuel following some of the top players in the sport. John Bateman, Amy Hardcastle, and James Simpson, all incredible athletes and leaders with amazing stories to tell.
In 2009, James was injured whilst serving in the Army and he doesn’t pull any punches in describing the moment that almost took his life. So this film should come with a warning, as it does describe in detail his life changing injury. But James isn’t defined by this moment, but by his incredible attitude and positivity, his warmth and infectious spirit.
He says that Wheelchair Rugby League changed his life, but in truth we feel that without people like James, the sport wouldn’t be where it is today. England won the Wheelchair RL World Cup in November last year.
A massive thank you to Chris, Jayde and the Reign Body Fuel team, allowing us to champion these athletes and their stories. Thanks also to the team at England Rugby League and the talent themselves for the support throughout the production.

If you have something that you truly believe in, surround yourself with others that have the same faith, and run at it together.
It's been a decade since five friends, fresh out of university, with zero experience, but plenty of ambition and optimism decided to launch their own production studio. Looking back, it’s incredible to think how much work needed to be done, and how little we knew.
