Another big thank you to everyone for contributing to this film - we are getting there but things have slowed down quite a bit! If you could help me continue to get the word out by sharing this page I would be so very grateful. We've got fourteen days of our Boosted campaign remaining, so time is ticking.
To help reach our target, I'm holding a film screening of "Captain Fantastic" at the Lighthouse Petone, on Sunday the 2nd of October at 7pm. Ideally, I'd like to sell as many tickets as possible BEFORE the 29th (our Boosted cut-off), so that this can be counted towards our Boosted goal. Would you or anyone you know like to join us?? The film stars the wonderful Viggo Mortensen, and recently screened at the Film Festival, so if you missed it then - now's your chance! Tickets are $25 each, which includes a bag of jaffas each , and there will be awesome raffles up for grabs including a prize pack from Tumbleweed Tees (check them out! https://tumbleweedtees.com).
Here is the Facebook event page, which includes details fo how to buy a ticket: https://www.facebook.com/events/795436897225970/
Thanks again everyone - with your help we can do this! Sharing among your own networks would help me hugely.
Regarding the actual project, we have Waka Attewell confirmed as our Director of Photgraphy, which is really exciting. We are also in negotiations with Resene, who are going to let us film some scenes inside their paint factory here in Naenae. They are a big supporter of film, and the factory is a well-known iconic building for the Hutt, so it's wonderful to be able to include them. (I've also had a lot of fun planning some fantastic visuals of swirling vats of paint!).
The Resene scenes will feature our young mum working at the paint factory, having recently lost her baby. More will be revealed soon.
I'm also planning on including some shots of our beloved Avalon "smiling windmills" sculpture if at all possible... this will tie into the tiny windmill decorations that we see on babies graves, and help to place the film even more firmly in Lower Hutt.
To all who have donated in memory of their precious babies - we're so very honoured that you have done this, and with your permission I will be including all their names in the credits (I'll be in touch about this later on).
Thank you again everyone.
