Swine is a feature length horror film set in the quiet, yet to be developed, town of Serenity Glade. A century ago it was “Potter's Farm” and was the financial heart of the area, but due to deaths in the family and the evolution of cities, it lies dormant. Fraudulent property developer Charlie Hesternan has founded Serenity Glade in the hopes of selling it off to unsuspecting buyers. Gerald, our hero, has come out of an early retirement, and become a real estate agent. Gerald has been contacted by Hesternan to sell all the plots of Serenity Glade, at an inflated value of $100M.
Though excited, Gerald soon learns that he is not the first agent to attempt the sales, and that he may be putting the first group of potential buyers at grave risk. What is once serene can quickly become deadly.
With Swine, I want to capture the country's struggle with change, the development and redevelopment of our country, the threat of a change in identity, and the fear of the "stranger" in our home.
I intend to work with all practical effects, in particular, that of an 800kg pig. I like to work with beautiful peaceful shots mixed with a terrifying juxtaposition. I am also intent on using a full New Zealand music soundtrack, from a variety of artists, to assist in bringing out our identity, past and present, to the forefront. Our country is also known for its agriculture, and we have come a long way to better treat our livestock, but still have a way to go. I am going to be showing the emotional connection we have with animals, and the empathy they can have for us.
Personally I have also always been a fan of horror, and ultimately, I hope to give the audience a ride, a laugh and a little scare!
This will be the first feature film from Broken Prince Films, which we hope will make way for many other projects already in treatment and script stage. We are wanting to remain independent, hence the choice of crowdfunding, and desire to keep all development within NZ. The more funding received, the more jobs may be generated, and of course the better the product will look. Though we are new, many creators involved are well experienced, talented and skilled in what they do, having been involved in many elements of New Zealand's media over the last 15 years.
Upon completion of this film, it is intended to be premiered at an International Film Festival. Any investors that wish to be kept up to date on this process need only let us know.
Profits from this project will go on to fund further projects that we have in development, as well as a donation to an animal charity.
