Its great when you see productions and feature films come out of your hometown. Newcastle Director Stuart James McBratney is in the post production stage of his new film, “Pop-Up”, and we are very excited to see it when it hits the Red Carpet.
The film is being financed through Newcastle-based production company McBrat Motion Pictures. The team’s last project, the tv series “Back in the Soviet Bloc”, was acquired for worldwide distribution by London-based TVF International in 2014. The Australian batch of our principal photography has been completed in Newcastle, Australia, and they will soon shoot the final scenes in Sebeș, Romania. The first screening is scheduled in mid-2015.
The movie is essentially a “Drama Comedy” with three interweaving stories:
An unemployed father finds a camera containing a single photo of a woman’s face. Smitten, he tracks her down. A Romanian immigrant attempts to overcome her heartbreak by giving away home-made pop-up cards. A sleep-deprived theatre director seeks deadly revenge on a scathing critic.
We are a big supporter of helping promote local creative industries, and this is definitely something to keep an eye on. It also stars one of our good friends Brenton Prince, who we are looking forward to having a beer and a guitar sing-a-long with after its all finished.
