About

Horsin' Around

Project 2021-08-01 15:31:46 +1200

Horsin’ Around is a comedy/drama short film that follows the life of aspiring actor, Russell Stubbs. Down on his luck, Russell has one last shot to make it to the big leagues and secure his dream acting role. When Russell meets a half-horse-half-human galactic guru by the name of Bernie Hayman, he steps out of his comfort zone to prepare the performance of a lifetime. Can Russell give his dropkick attitude the boot and achieve great success?

The aim for this film is to tell an underdog story with a few laughs along the way. Inspiration for this film comes from the gritty reality of the suburban dreamer, trying to find a purpose on planet earth. With a passion for comedy and a vision to create a visual masterpiece, we’d love to bring this story to life.

Writer/producer Reed Cathcart and director Issac Plummer have teamed up to bring these characters to life. This project is a debut short film for us both and is the final assessment of our Television and Screen Production major at Auckland University of Technology. We hope to run with this film after university and submit it to film festivals around the world. Who knows maybe it’ll even win an oscar or two... That’d be pretty mint.

Working closely with Executive Producer James Nicholson, his experience and knowledge around the film world has been guiding us on this mission. We’ve already secured ourselves a brilliantly talented crew, with Antonia Laus as our First Assistant Director, Liam Watters as our Cinematographer, Shayla Crombie as our Sound Operator, and Abeiku Eshun as our Lighting Technician.

The main areas of cost that any funding would go towards includes cast, catering, transport, set design, lighting, props, and submission to film festivals. Any donations would be sincerely appreciated and will go a long way in helping us achieve this dream.

To stay updated with all our progress for Horsin' Around make sure to follow us on Instagram @horsinaroundfilm. If you want to get in touch with us feel free to DM us or email us at [email protected] This whole thang is going to be a heck of a lot of fun so stay tuned! 

It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to give this story wings and send it off into the universe. We can’t wait to bring this to your screens and blow your minds.

We thank you and we love you, Reed & Issac.

An Archive Media & Deroes Films production.
