Introducing 'Heart to Heart' - a snapshot in time of a woman's mind, and the consequential actions that follow...

We invite you to become part of the film world by making a donation towards the filming and release of our movie.

Heart to Heart is the upcoming project from Detour Picture House and Cool Story Bro Film, starring Justine Hunter (Take 3) and Lauren Porteous (Dear Murderer).

Set in Raurimu in the dead of winter this film will intrigue, challenge and explore obsession and oppression - are women really for or against one another?

As filmmakers, we strive to tell authentic stories in dynamic New Zealand locations that appeal to a local and global audience.

'Taking inspiration from David Fincher, Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock - when it comes to telling this story, anyone can be a monster' - Director Lauren Porteous, Winner Best Female Director 48hrs Film Festival 2016

'It's vital to me that everything we produce takes you on an emotional journey, a rollercoaster that you can't get off' - Greg Smith, Winner Best Short LA Subversive Film Festival 2015
