Writer-director Guy Moore has finalised the cast for his third film, a horror/thriller which is due to shoot in the Blue Mountains in March.
Anthony Darvall will play the lead, 17-year-old Goff, who flees his family to see a friend named Tim (Brodie Henson), where a nightmare of conflict, ego and sexuality unfolds.
Naomi Lisner and Guy May will play Goff’s parents, together with Kya Stewart as an enigmatic character known as The Girl.
The working title is Tampon, it’s financed by private investors and Moore is in talks with distributors. Asked where he got the idea, the filmmaker tells IF, “I read in a book that Akira Kurosawa’s teacher Yama-San told him to write what you know and not to include a gun or a scene in a back alley. So I started with the first scene and it just flowed. It was finished 10 days later.”
Moore’s debut film, Badmouth, is a horror/action/sex comedy which used non-actors and was shot in the Thora valley north of Bellingen. It premiered at the Dungog Film Festival in 2011 and is available on Amazon Video.
His second film, You Raped My Soul, a feature-length doco on the making of Badmouth, is in post.
The prolific Moore was asked to write a script for Lisner and Andreas Constantinou, who stars in Pandelis Voulgaris’ Little England, which is Greece’s entry for best foreign-language film at the upcoming Academy Awards.
Entitled Lizard Man, the plot follows a crazy woman who needs love but doesn’t want it and a lonely man who wants her love but can’t get it.
