“We are looking at film festival screenings, hopefully worldwide at Sundance , Berlin, Cannes and probably Flickerfest in Australia. “Because we are hoping to raise awareness for mainly young adult drivers, we are currently in discussions with various organisations that deal with road safety awareness and education. “They will be able to use the film in their educational campaigns across Australia and maybe the world. It is a short film of about eight to nine minutes.”
Ms Rogers, who also worked on locally short films 500 Miles and The Tree, said the Rosewood and Calvert people had been a treat to work with. “Peter was after a country looking town that loaned itself to the theme that the community knows what is going on,” she said. “Rosewood really suited that country town feeling and that wide expanse you don’t really get in the city, so you can develop character and emotion. “We’ve got three boys from one of the schools at Rosewood that are helping out as extras. “All the locals have been really lovely, and the (Ipswich City) Council and the location owners have been great.” Cr David Pahlke said the movie was another in a long line of films being shot locally and that the Ipswich City Council “welcomes movie makers with open arms”.
