Project 2012-09-04 05:14:42 +1200

I'm Cody Packer, a 20 year old budding filmmaker and I am trying to gather funding for my short film 'Jakob' I have written and will direct. The film will cost around $15,000 to make and I am currently on the journey of self funding it through various grants and donations; to turn my film from a dream into a reality. 


It is about now that you will be wondering: what experience does this boy have? Who has he got behind the film to ensure that this film is a success, not a failure? Well I'll start with myself. I went to the NZ Broadcasting Film in 2010/11 and did a Degree in Digital Film and Television. One of my projects 'Gloriavale,' a documentary on a religious cult/community in the South Island went on to win the 'Best Documentary' at the Chicago CineYouth Film Festival 2012 and is now an Official Selection at the 62nd Chicago International FIlm Festival in October. My first short film entitled 'The Centre Line' was an Official Selection at the 2010 Hawaii International Film Festival in the Student Showcase. In 2011 I also won the NZ short film competition called 'The Outlook for Someday' with my film 'Crossfire,' as well as the Technical Achievement for Creative Excellence award. 

The team behind my new project entitled 'Jakob' is one of great experience. The producer of the film Natasha Romaniuk has been in the Television and Film Industry in NZ and the UK for 25 years working on projects such as: Eastenders, Underbelly, Outrageous Fortune and The Golden Hour. The Director of Photography currently attached is DJ Stipsen, a multi award winning cinematographer who has been in the industry for a number of years working on projects such as: Underbelly, The Chronicles of Narnia: Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, Go Girls, Family Affairs, The Golden Hour, Safehouse and Siege.  

So what is your money going towards? Here is a brief synopsis of the film: 
After waiting 16 years for their newborn child Jakob to come out of a coma, David and Claire struggle to deal with the challenges and consequences that surface after he wakes up. Jakob wakes up the size of a 16 year old boy, but with the mental capacity of a newborn child, having missed all stages of his early childhood development. These consequences not only threaten the dynamics of David and Claire's relationship, but also threaten to destroy their dream of raising a child.
