Tru Dot Films has revealed that principal photography on Victorian psychological horror Living Space will commence on Wednesday, November 16.
‘The story follows college sweethearts Brad (Leigh Scully) and Ashley (Georgina Chara), who venture into the heartland of Germany. Their romantic holiday takes a sinister turn when encountering a German SS Officer (McPhee) and his family (Jolene Anderson and Emma Leonard), thrusting them into a psychological vortex of horror, revealing there is not always life in a ‘Living Space’.’
Living Space comes from the mind of writer and director Steven Spiel who found success with his short film Never Forgiven last year, taking out best story in the short film category of the International Film and Entertainment Festival Australia. Spiel has written the script and will take the director’s throne for Living Space, which will be filmed across Geelong, Victoria.
The film has been privately-funded by multiple Australian investors and has attached Natalie Forward, as producer. Forward has also experienced success, with her web series Haunted or Hoax receiving five nominations at the New York WebFest.
The cast will be formed by a convocation of international and national actors from Los Angeles to Queensland, with local talent Georgia Chara (Wentworth) Leigh Scully (Home & Away), Andy McPhee (Wolf Creek) Jolene Anderson (All Saints) and Emma Leonard (800 Words) all taking roles. Andrea Buck, Kate Elizabeth Jean and Darren Vukasinovic have also been attached as producers.
The project has also attracted some big names for the off-screen crew too, with Witches cinematographer Branco Grabovac, special effects artist Steven Boyle (The Hobbit, Star Wars, Daybreakers, The Matrix), The Dressmaker’s production designer Das Patterson and costume designer Chloe Greaves all keen to get on board.
The filming will last until mid-December 2016.
