Matthew Inns launches new film project
Filmmaker launches new projectLAUREN HAYES
Southlanders with dramatic talent can audition for a part in southern filmmaker Matthew Inns' next venture.
Actors and extras are wanted to appear in The Ballad of Maddog Quinn, a short film set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world, which resembles the old wild west.
The film will be directed by SIT digital media graduate Matthew Inns, who has been labelled the ''next Peter Jackson'' and took his short film Oku Tuakana, My Brothers to the Cannes Film Festival in 2010.
His new ''hard and gritty'' film follows the adventures of the infamous Maddog Quinn, an outlaw with an unlikely cause, as he runs from the relentless state regulators.
The project has financial support from Film Otago Southland and the Invercargill Licensing Trust.
Southland auditions will be held February 13-15, but applicants must be available for South Island filming in late March.
To apply, send a headshot and expression of interest to producer Melissa Dodds at firstname.lastname@example.org
