Local DIY feature film: JAKE

Postby . » Mon May 05, 2014 10:57 am

Sorry for the raging self-promotion.

This morning we released a new trailer for our feature film JAKE.

We've been working on it after-hours and on weekends for the last six fucking years. But finally there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it's going to have a limited theatrical run in Auckland at Academy Cinema in June/July.

The movie is 100% self-funded: it's had no public funding from the Film Commision and no external investment - we've just been really broke for six years. Between us we're about $75,000 out of pocket. That's a pittance in filmmaking terms but it's our life savings.

If people come out and fill seats at the Academy then the run might get extended and it will be easier for us to leverage screenings in other cities.

Oh shit, Mira will be back by the time this is in Wgtn as well, so I'll see if she's keen to come to.

Finally saw this yesterday, was gonna tell you on Facebook Al, but can't seem to find you?

Well done, it looks great, and you've managed to pull off a pretty out there premise. Chur!
