Australian filmmakers Julian Harvey and Enzo Tedeschi have come up with a unique and modern approach to releasing their movie. Instead of complaining about internet piracy and spending millions in trying to fight it they are releasing their film for free on Torrent sites everywhere next year. They instead made their money by selling each frame of the film for a dollar netting them $135,000. Not bad for an independent. It’s certainly new and interesting and is a brilliant way to connect with fans. Instead of selling a movie that could be shared online for free they sold a scarcity that they had which was the frames of the film. That cannot be duplicated and is something a fan would find desirable. For a dollar to you cannot beat the price. A very smart idea indeed.
Building on that creativity their poster contains the names of everyone who funded the film through the purchase of these frames. Yet another scarcity sold to get their film made. Check out the trailer and then download the film for free next year. Love it, share it, and enjoy it.
Synopsis: “In 2007 the New South Wales government suddenly scrapped a plan to utilise the water in the disused underground train tunnels beneath Sydney’s St James Train Station.
In 2008, chasing rumours of a government coverup and urban legends surrounding the sudden backflip, investigative journalist Natasha Warner led a crew of four into the underground labyrinth.
They went down into the tunnels looking for a story – until the story found them.
This is the film of their harrowing ordeal. With unprecedented access to the recently declassified tapes they shot in the claustrophobic subway tunnels, as well as a series of candid interviews with the survivors, we come face to face with the terrifying truth.
This never before seen footage takes us deep inside the tunnels bringing the darkness to life and capturing the raw fear that threatens to tear the crew apart, leaving each one of them fighting for their lives.”
