Living Like A King

Project 2014-02-01 18:19:32 +1300

curated

Collab Project with Loading Docs

LOADING DOCS is a trailblazing new initiative co-funded by The New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air, and managed by production company Notable Pictures to fund, create and distribute innovative New Zealand documentary shorts.

The disaster and tragedy of the Christchurch Earthquake left the majority of its people devastated. But for a small group of homeless people the earthquake meant new and luxurious living opportunities.

 

Living like a King is an intimate portrait of one of Christchurch's oldest Streeties - Aka Cowboy and his unexpected taste of what it's like to live like a King. It's a positive rags to riches story. Through Cowboy, we get rare access to discovering what's really happening behind the scenes of the Earthquake aftermath.

 

"After living on the Street for 20 years, we're now tasting what it's like to live like Kings. We're sleeping in fancy sheets, drinking champagne and living in mansions... and we're fucking loving it." 

 

About the director:           

Zoe McIntosh first won attention for a documentary on mail order brides, made while she studied film at Canterbury University. In 2010, Lost in Wonderland, her hour-long doco about idiosyncratic barrister Rob Moodie won the Qantas award for Best Popular Documentary and the following year she was awarded the SPADA New film maker award. McIntosh has been given notice for her drama directing too.

Her short film Day Trip screened at Tribeca Film festival and received multiple awards in International film festivals. She also directs commercials and has just won the 2013 Cannes Lions, young commercial directors’ award.

McIntosh has also recently completed a feature film called The Deadly Ponies Gang and a short documentary called King of Caravans.

We have a small team on board with this project. Myself as Director/Producer, Clint Rarm as Camera Operator and we are hoping to get a soundy when down in Christchurch.

 

If you've managed to read this far, we must have your attention so please donate towards this great little film. This is a first for me to ask for money. I have just recently self funded two films that premiered in this year’s International film festival; a feature film called The Deadly Ponies Gang and King of Caravans. My money has dried up but I really want to make this film. Like Cowboy, I appreciate any of the loose change that you may have to support this great project.  

 

Your donations will go towards:

  • Flights for crew
  • Gear hire
  • Composer
  • Title sequence 
  • Editor

 

And of course, we would love to be able to feed Cowboy like the King he is too!

 

We've all heard the stories that have come out of the Christchurch earthquakes, but you've yet to hear about Cowboy; rags to riches, street to marble and bourbon to bubbles.

 

Thank you to Rekindle for the rewards! 

They are a amazing bunch of people that make furniture and jewellery out of the demolition wood from the Christchurch earthquake. You can check out their amazing work here

 

Once again, thank you for all your support and please help me make this documentary.
