GUN takes place in Colonial Victoria, where a young man named Patrick visits his father in prison. Patrick intends to question his father as to the whereabouts of a pistol that he should have inherited years earlier from his beloved Grandfather, but which hasn't been seen in a decade. Patrick's visit, however, takes both men on a far more challenging emotional journey than either could have expected.
GUN is set to be a gritty and dirty tale of blame and betrayal, inspired by such films and television shows as:
The Proposition (2005) dir. John Hillcoat
There Will Be Blood (2007) dir. Paul Thomas Anderson
Deadwood (2004-2006) creator. David Milch
GUN is one of the many graduating films that will come out of the Queensland University of Technology in 2012. The crew behind GUN are looking to create a film that they can be proud to show as a calling card to help kick start their careers within the film or television industry after they graduate. That is why we need your help to support this film and make it the best it possibly can be so we can all have a fighting chance of success!
The university is providing us with a majority of the equipment we will need to be able to make the film, but there are still a lot of other expenses we need to cover.
PROFESSIONALS: By hiring safety officers and armourers, we are able to ensure our set is kept safe and in control, not to mention being able to shoot some guns.
CATERING: We have a fantastic crew on board the film, and in order to keep them fantastic we need to keep them well fed (and with something more substantial than just 2 minute noodles.)
ART DEPARTMENT: Seeing as GUN is a period film set in colonial Australia, extensive art department work is required as it will play a key role in the film. From costumes, to set dressing, and of course guns, we need some assistance to help finance all the pretty items we need to buy.
MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION: So that it isn't just Mum and Dad watching the completed film in our basement.
