David Christopher-Turner and Alex De Luca are two actors united by a
dream, to get their respective features (or maybe TV series) Dream
Finder and Shadow Warrior off the ground, to act in them and be
producers - and help each other out making them. The main problem though
is, both films are high concept epics (one's a fantasy, the other a viking
flick) and neither David nor Alex are high on funds. But they go at it
anyhow, filming a traler for Dream Finder to lure in some investors
- but it's a shoot where everything seems to go wrong, from cast and crew
stuck in the snow to DoPs leaving the project on the day of the shoot, to
some of the footage being unusable. But regarding all the setbacks, the
trailer actually turned out very ok. But a trailer doesn't grant one any
budget, and getting the money needed while keeping cast and crew motivated
is indeed an uphill struggle ...
Whoever has ever made an indie
film will probably totally symathize with this movie's story, and those
who haven't will probably see indies with a different set of eyes now,
knowing what a struggle it can be - and this is a film that also sheds
light on the negative sides of the "filmmaking dream", which
includes being constantly out of money, problems in one's relationship and
the like. Which exactly is what makes this film so good, it comes across
as authentic, and at the same time makes the fascination of its
protagonists for the filmmaking process - with all its setbacks and
disappointments - all the more palpable. And at the end of the day, it's a
safe bet to say, this is a movie that will probably make you want to watch
a bunch of indie flicks ...
