Finance Finder EP sought for female start-up feature production company

Posted Friday 13 Apr 2018

Dark Rose Films Ltd NZ seeks an executive producer, either to work with it on its slate of features 4-7, or just to work on feature 4 and /or feature 5. The production finance search for feature 5 has to start about 8/9months from now, so they're  particularly interested in a long term collaborator.
Feature 4, a microbudget musical feature, requires investment for post production and a P&A budget. These sums are to be sought in late 2018/early 2019.
Feature 5, which is an adaptation of an optioned New Zealand novel by Rachel McAlpine, will need to have its production budget sought  at the beginning of next year.

Pitch trailers are available for features no. 4-6, with no. 7 to be completed shortly, and synopses and screenplays are available for nos. 4-7, so send your expressions of interest to: to receive these.

Copies of outline production budgets for features 5 and 6, and an outline figure for feature 7 are available.
Feature no.2, now doing the festival rounds, is available for viewing as a screener and feature no.3 is available as just over 2/3 of a rough cut. Finally, a copy of Dark Rose's strategic plan/slate is also available for those interested.

Dark Rose greatly welcomes all and any enquiries regarding finance, or any other collaboration. We are based around Auckland and would be delighted to meet up or Skype for a chat. We can then discuss the production budgets, the role, and proposed financial terms for an EP.

The New Zealand Dance Company, in co-production with Holland Dance Festival, presents one of its most sought after and celebrated programmes - 'Lumina'. Three incomparable pieces of contemporary dance explode off the stage in ground-breaking and hypnotic (NZ Herald) spectacles, resulting in "a tour de force of dance, music and light" (DANZ Magazine). Artistic director Shona McCullagh tasked some of NZ and Holland's finest choreographers, composers and audio-visual designers to create a rich world that "...revealed a depth of talent in every aspect of the production..."(DANZ Magazine). Direct from Paris's prestigious Th��tre National de Chaillot and Liverpool, following sold out seasons in New Zealand, the Holland Dance Festival and Germany, Lumina is not to be missed!

Performing in Hamilton, Christchurch, Nelson and Auckland from 4 - 23 May
