- Raindance launches Raw Talent outfit
Love Honour Obey by Ate de Jong is the new production under the Raindance Film Festival’s re-launched production wing Raindance Raw Talent. Principal photography is expected to complete on May 29 at London locations. Raw Talent was launched in 2006 with Simon Rumley’s The Living And The Dead [+see also:
film profile] but was dormant since.
Described as a ‘home invasion thriller’, Love Honour Obey is co-produced by Mulholland Pictures (Fogbound) and Templeheart Films (Airborne) from a screenplay by debutant Mark Rogers. The cast includes Edward Akrout (Swinging With The Finkels), Megan Maczko (Me And Orson Welles [+see also:
film profile]) and Matt Barber (Bert & Dickie).
Ate de Jong said, “Unusually, the actors found the film. Megan was in the US and sent me an email wishing the production well – I later realized she understood the character better than me and was a great actress, so the step to ask her to play Alison was easy to take! She had studied with Edward, who had in turn worked with Matt - I feel blessed that these three actors have brought their own and each other’s talents, as well as their hearts and souls, to this provocative, disturbing and deeply intriguing film.”
Raindance founder Elliot Grove said, “Love Honour Obey represents all that Raindance believes in: an exceptional script, a challenging topic, a talented cast and crew and a director with the vision to complete it.”
The film will premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in September 2013 with sales being handled by Raindance.
