Hello!  I'm the Writer/Director Andrew Traucki, welcome to the Indiegogo campaign for my third feature, THE JUNGLE.

Update 1 - Progress so far

Update 2 - Behind the Scenes

The Jungle


THE JUNGLE tells the story of big cat conservationist LARRY BLACK and his filmmaker brother BEN as they travel into the Indonesian jungle to  document the rare and endangered Javan Leopard. As they travel deeper and deeper into the jungle they realise they are being stalked by a deadly predator.


The kill


This is my third thriller. Both Black Water (2008) and The Reef (2010) have been extremely well received internationally.  THE JUNGLE will have the all fear and terror of Black Water and The Reef. It will be a suspenseful, terrifying and scary film - and this time it’s going to feel even more real!

Video message from Andrew

I believe the best way to create suspense is by suggestion, by giving the audience and their super brains the space to go crazy with intrigue.

In a thriller this game of suspense has a lot to do with the post-production process, with editing, sound design and grading. We need some more funding to help THE JUNGLE through the post-production path and make it a THRILLING RIDE.

The money we raise on Indiegogo will go towards our post-production work. It will buy us more editing time. It will ensure our sound design is spooky and tense and it will give us a great colour grade, to really bring the forest alive!

By coming onboard during this post-production stage, you'll ensure that THE JUNGLE is the scariest and most gripping film it can be!

The rare Javan Leopard


In 2007 I wrote and directed Black Water. Black Water sold to 76 countries. It has been released theatrically around the wrold. The UK newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, described it as a "nerve shredding". The  Movie Website, Rotten Tomatoes, gives Black Water a thumbs up of 79%

In 2010 I directed the shark thriller, The Reef. As with Black Water instead of using animatronic I used real animals in the movie, thats right, the sharks in The Reef are real! The Reef sold to 105 countries. It was also released theatrically around the world. The Reef was invited to numerous film festivals including Pusan, SITGES, Brisbane and Singapore film festivals.The Reef has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 76%

I really enjoy writing and directing survival-thrillers. I love imagining what it would be like to be in a life and death situation? Wondering what would I do to survive? I mustn't be the only one who likes playing this game because both my films have found large international audiences.

Your contribution will go a long way towards helping turn our raw footage into a  finished feature film.

This is an indie project, and doesn't have studio support. We shot it on a shoestring budget, and now we want to get this to you, but it could get lost amongst the blockbusters.

With your help we can make sure THE JUNGLE has a better chance of getting to cinema, and getting out to you - by pre-ordering an exclusive Indiegogo version of THE JUNGLE DVD now for example, you can guarantee you get to see this film.

Every perk you grab helps make the chance of cinema release just a bit more possible.

I want to make The jungle as scary and thrilling and cool as possible so I'm turning to Indiegogo and you guys to make this happen.

I've got some great rewards on offer, including:

  • a signed box set of the three features Black Water, The Reef and The Jungle
  • ways that you can get involved personally
  • tickets to the cast and crew screening
  • talking to me on Skype about your movie idea

I'm lucky to have all of you out there who love the thriller and horror genre and appreciate what I'm trying to do. Its great that you have this chance to join with me to make THE JUNGLE the best it can be.

The Skull


There are other ways to join in if the perks aren't for you! Whether you are posting an update on your Facebook status, tweeting to your followers or sharing our video on your YouTube channel, every bit goes a long way. Truly!

By helping us find extra fans for THE JUNGLE, you'll be getting the film out into new territories and encouraging sales agents to bring it to cinemas around the world, this will increase your chance of seeing THE JUNGLE in a cinema near you!

Anything you do to get the word out is greatly appreciated!



Thanks for reading this and taking an interest in THE JUNGLE. We really appreciate your support. It's truly great to have people like you come on board and make THE JUNGLE a reality.
