Two friends Wilson & Chris who are drifting through life, working the land & various odd jobs, with each trapped by their habitual behaviours, as the real good stuff of life passes them by.
Wilson an ex pro-am boxer (Justin John Carroll) is attempting to recover from various addictions he suffers including alcohol addiction, while rebuilding his relationship with his wife Jackie (Sarah Tapes Jenkinson) & coping with his mental health issues linked to his past.
While Chris an ex-marine (Darryl Neville) who appears on the outside to be extremely together but has his own demons including, mental health challenges of PTSD & a constant questioning of his self-value. Jackie also must search her heart & soul as she attempts to remain present, supporting Wilson despite his flaws & failings. Emily’s (Maya Lindh) arrival gives reason to spark a significant change in Chris’ life. However critically both Wilson & Chris first must truly find acceptance of themselves, to be able to strive to overcome their flaws & fears, to truly find themselves & live empowering lives.
Justin John Carroll and Darryl Neville are the screenwriters of this striking dramatic piece with much of the material taking inspiration from our experiences, including Justin's 25 year fight with alcohol.
The film is being Produced by Justin John Carroll and Directed by Darryl Neville. We have an amazing, collaborative, highly skilled production team and extremely focused, talented actors, working hard on Drifter.
We have already completed the first shoot in our planned schedule with a third of the film now in the can, fully edited. We're scheduled to film the second segment of the shoot in January 2018, with a third and final segment in the planning.
The scenes edited from our first shoot look fantastic and we've received excellent feedback from those we have shared it with and we believe we will have a strong, visceral film which speaks in different ways to many people with an aim of taking it to some of the highest profile festivals once complete.
A huge thank you must go to all our Contributors who helped us make the first segment of our shoot happen and we look forward to sharing content in due course that we are sure you will be proud of being part of!
Every cent we raise will go towards Production Costs, and then the continuing Editing Process, Colour Grading of Footage, Sound Sync and Trailers/Teasers.
