A Brand New Independent Australian Movie! It’s already doing the festival rounds, looks like making it back to Oz in September.. Big shout to Jak Wyld 🙂
Introducing a crazy new genre mash-up from Australian director, Stephen Amis (The Real Thing, The Alive Tribe, Oz Encounters, UFO’s in Australia).
With an international cast, state of the art digital effects, and classic vintage styling, The 25th Reich is a rollicking, WWII sci-fi adventure – full of time-travel, duplicitous Nazi robots, faulty spaceships and giant mega-fauna…
Based on the classic novella, 50,000 Years Until Tomorrow by J.J. Solomon, and with a screenplay penned by Amis, David Richardson and Serge DeNardo, the movie is a homage to sci-fi and WWII movies of the 1940’s and 50’s.
Now in post-production, The 25th Reich was produced in Australia by Lynne Wilson’s Peal Productions, Tait Brady’s Acme Film Company, and Stephen Amis’, Revolution Pictures.
Led by visual effects guru, Sheldon Whittaker, the producers recruited small teams of talented artists across the world to produce hundreds of high-end visual effects – recalling the works of Ray Harryhausen and classic creature-features.
Featuring costume designs by Ian Sparke (The Pacific), special makeup effects by Nik Dorning (Lord of the Rings, Australia, Troy and Knowing), editing by Bill Murphy (Romper Stomper, Mary and Max), a Wagnerian, motif-driven score by Ricky Edwards (Shine, Australia, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole) and sound design by Chris Goodes (Don’t be Afraid of the Dark, Killer Elite).
Starring, Jim Knobeloch (Heaven’s Gate, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Ponderosa), Serge DeNardo (Greeks on the Roof), Angelo Salamanca, Dan Balcaban and Jak Wyld.
The 25th Reich goosesteps into cinemas in 2012…
