After the short film Titiro won the "it award" (best new comer) for film maker Chelsea Grant at the Women of Film and Television Showcase we are now proud to annouce the film will be made into a feature.
Chelsea Grant is a woman proud of her Maori (New Zealand) roots and this film will continue to showcase the ancient gods of the Maori. Bringing an amazing story to life and putting a culture rich in history on the world stage.
With the likes of Jake Gyllenhall being considered to play the lead in the feature and interest from Lionsgate to distribute this film will be something special.
With development funds we will be able to write the script, location scout, create an intial budget, storyboard, cover legal, research, create a professional pitch document and do key casting.
A scene from Titiro (the award winning short) can be watched as a guide to the feature length film. Please note it is in lower res on the youtube link. However the film is available in 2k and 4k, this will be shown in 2k for those that purchase the higher pledge amounts.
