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 Warrior, Commando).
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.
We always love to get behind Aussie filmmakers trying to make their filmmaking dreams come true and yes if you remember correctly we loved Travis Bain’s brilliant film Throwback. So when Dave G heard that Travis is trying to crowdfund his brand new film Landfall he decided that it was time to sit Travis down for a chat to see how you can all be involved.
