quietearth [Celluloid 03.03.09] movie news scifi thriller mystery



Lancaster, currently in post on his feature-length directorial debut Accidents Happen, a drama about a family which is seriously accident prone, has a project in development which I'm sure will interest Quiet Earth readers as it has me. Also somewhat new to the scene is Liz Doran who wrote the screenplay, and while this is her first feature-length script, she's done a lot of work on various projects including as script editor on the fantastic Aussie thriller The Square. As you can probably guess from the fantastic looking poster, the story involves sound, much like Reverb or a film we've been eagerly awaiting called Analogue but from the stellar sounding synopsis it's nothing like these two. It's seems like a dystopic utopia.

Valve is a mystery thriller about a man who discovers he can hear subsonic sound. Set sometime in the future in a town trapped in the past, the fictitious town of Harmony, Valve will be shot entirely on location in the city of Canberra. The planned streets, formal, bureaucratic architecture and manicured gardens provide the perfect backdrop for the Kafkaesque world of Harmony - a world that's perfect on the surface yet hiding a dark secret underneath. Told with an original and distinctive audio and visual style, Valve uses the conventions of the mystery thriller to unveil a sweet, offbeat love story.


That's all for now, but we'll be watching for more!

I hope Jeremy Saunders does the art work. He is not only an amazing artist but a totally cute tall drink of water too.
