Buzz Productions, in partnership with Movierockets Entertainment, today announced that it has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Odin’s Eye Entertainment Pty Ltd (OEE) for its supernatural thriller, FORESHADOW.
The announcement came as cast and crew were preparing to walk the red carpet at the film’s world premiere last night, at Hoyts Carousel in Perth. The leading ladies were being dressed by Ruth Tarvydas, Ange Lang and George.
Established in 2006 by Michael Favelle, OEE is an integrated production, distribution and international sales agency that specialises in working with both emerging and established filmmakers across a wide variety of genres.
“I have known Michael for many years, through various films projects and festivals, so I am delighted to have his expertise on FORESHADOW,” said Buzz Productions’ CEO, Estelle Buzzard.
“While Michael concentrates on the sale side of the things, our team will continue to maximise publicity ahead of the film’s theatrical release.”
FORESHADOW is screening at selected Hoyts Cinemas in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth from Friday 8 November 2013.
According to Movierockets Entertainment CEO, Kris Lippert, he is delighted with the film’s progress.
“My aim with Movierockets is to make one film a year, and I’m proud to say we’ve done it again.”
“Following my initial meeting with Estelle in August last year, we undertook casting last October, principal photography in February, sales and distribution meetings in May, and now we’re celebrating our theatrical release,” said Lippert.
FORESHADOW tells the story of Jesse Milton (Justin Burford) who is living the high life – money, surf and a never-ending supply of hot dates – until he discovers his latest blonde bombshell dead. When the coroner rules out foul play and the police close their investigation, Jesse decides to go after the killer himself.
Two-time ARIA award winner and End of Fashion frontman, Justin Burford, makes his feature film debut alongside two-time Logie nominee Myles Pollard (DRIFT, McLeod’s Daughters), Logie nominee Ben Mortley (DRIFT, LANTANA, Home and Away, McLeod’s Daughters), 2013 Equity Guild Best Actor James Hagan (LITTLE SPARROWS, NEEDLE, The Great Mint Swindle) and model-turned-actress, Andrea Addison (RAVEN, BITTER ART).
The film features a predominantly local cast including Tawni Bryant (The Slap), Clara Helms (Australia’s Got Talent), Ben Young (AN ACCIDENTAL SOLDIER, TWO FISTS, ONE HEART, The Great Mint Swindle), Ben Purser (BITTER ART, Underbelly), Melanie Lyons (LITTLE SPARROWS, Cloudstreet, Lockie Leonard), Nina Deasley (LITTLE SPARROWS), Sam Devenport, Sam Pilot, Hannah Price, Sean Walsh, Maddy Culver and Charlie Pregnell.
FORESHADOW was co-written by Justin Burford and Kris Lippert, and directed by Carmelo Musca (DEEP SLEEP NO MORE). It was produced by Kris Lippert (GINGERCLOWN 3D) and Estelle Buzzard (THE LIFEGUARD, MISSING PIECES, Tango Underpants).
