FeatureLandfall

The first teaser trailer for the new Australian feature film thriller Landfall has debuted.

Landfall is about a young couple who are trapped in their beach house during a tropical cyclone when three desperate fugitives carrying a mysterious icebox invade their home following a heist. The ensemble cast includes Melbourne actors Rob Stanfield and Kristen Condon (both from Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla) and veteran actor Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road WarriorCommando).

Landfall is the third feature film from Cairns-based writer/director Travis Bain, whose most recent project, award-winning monster movie Throwback (also starring Wells), had a successful international film festival run in 2014 and is now available on DVD and Blu-ray worldwide.

Bain and his team filmed half of Landfall in July and have launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help raise finishing funds. Bain describes Landfall as “part neo-noir, part disaster movie” and says he looks forward to completing production within the coming months.

“We’ve got half a taut little thriller in the can,” says Bain, “and hopefully when people see the teaser they’ll get pumpedand help us finish the project with a pledge of a few dollars.” Anybody who wishes to get involved with funding Landfall can do so at http://igg.me/at/landfallfilm

Landfall will be submitted to film festivals in 2017 and is expected to receive a multi-platform global release in 2018.
