THE HANDKERCHIEF

Project 2013-02-18 01:40:39 +1300

Writer/Director, Linda Niccol, intends this film about a blind man looking for love with his other senses, to captivate audiences into the possibilities of seeing things from a blind person’s perspective, and empathise with the worlds such people must create for themselves in order to overcome what some may perceive as a sad disability, especially when it comes to finding love.

Main character, Alistair, relies on memory and imagination to communicate the beautiful world inside his head, which he must in turn convey to June in order to charm and seduce her.



The film has just been shot in Wellington's Botanic Gardens. As we go into editing the beautiful camera work and sublime performances will be crucial to realising the magic of this film, as will the creation of the many visual effects, some of which will be created digitally by Tony St George and Polytronik and we are also using models, created by Human Dynamo.

Key crew volunteered their services at low rates, these include producer; Glenis Giles, DoP; Renaud Maire, 1st AD; Jules Lovelock, sound designer and composer; Jeremy Cullen, editor; Jeff Hurrell,  and design and advertising agency; Mission Hall. And the additional crew worked for food and petrol vouchers!

We're keeping our lovely actress under wraps until later. But if you want to take a guess add your comment on this site in the comments section.

The estimated budget is $28,000.00 and we are getting close, thanks to all our generous pledgers!

The script won the Kaos Films British Short Screenplay Competition. Alan Parker and Kenneth Branagh were amongst the judges. 2,000 writers from around the world entered. Unfortunately lack of funding support for production has meant this beautiful story has never made it onto the big screen.
