Producer Ant Timpson (The ABCs of Death) and Greg Newman (EVP MPI/Dark Sky Films) and New Zealand Film Commission CEO Graeme Mason announced today the return of “Make My Movie,” the highly successful New Zealand feature film project, Bloody Disgusting is told.
The New Zealand Film Commission and MPI/Dark Sky Films are financing a low budget feature film scheme in which the entire budget will be given away to any individual/team who can come up with a synopsis & poster that wows the public and the in-house gurus. The first round resulted in the critically acclaimed kiwi peeping-tom rom-com How To Meet Girls From A Distance. That film was conceived and delivered in less than six months, it was then sold to Madman Entertainment after a highly successful festival run in New Zealand.
This time around Exec Producer Ant Timpson sought support from Greg Newman and MPI and upped the stakes calling it “Make My Horror Movie” with a focus entirely on the horror genre.
The MPI/Dark Sky Films brand includes the successful genre films The House of the Devil, Stake Land, The Innkeepers, Frankenstein’s Army, Hatchet III, Stitches and the upcoming Late Phases.
