A new feature film is shooting in Western Australia later this year, and they’re on the hunt for their primary location – could it be your house?
Birthright is the directorial debut for WA-based writer/director Zoe Pepper (pictured above, right), and it recently secured $750,000 in funding thanks to Screenwest’s West Coast Visions initiative.
The funding is distributing annually by Screenwest in conjunction with Screen Australia to help West Australian filmmakers realise their feature debut.
The film will be produced by Cody Greenwood from Rush Films (pictured above), whose recent credits include documentary Under The Volcano and the ABC documentary Girl Like You, and John Maynard (Felix Media), producer of the early Eric Bana vehicle, Romulus, My Father.
Birthright is a dark comedy that follows a young couple who are eight months pregnant, forced to move back into one of their wealthy parents’ homes after the loss of a job, before jealousy sets in and trouble brews from there.
The movie is in pre-production and in the early stages of securing locations, which is where you may come in!
They’re on the hunt for a home preferably “with two floors, a renovated kitchen, a large backyard and no/hidden pool, to film in.”
Filming is scheduled to take five to seven weeks at the end of the year, and if you’re house is the one you’ll be compensated with a weekly location fee and relocation cost paid for by production.
