FIRST EVER SLOVENE- SCOTTISH FEATURE FILM! Festival favourite: Los Angeles Cine Fest (Semi-Finalist), Top Indie Film Awards (Nominated: Best Feature Film, Best Editing and Best Music), FNF (Official Selection).
Synopsis: Micro budget feature film about Mike (played by Paul Hernes Barnes), a young Scottish writer who is sent to Slovenia where he must face his comic writer’s block. His stay in the city is boring until he meets Anja (played by Urška Klajn), an interesting young woman who shows him picturesque places and love. Dark comedy meets romance and thriller.
Produced by IRE Studios & Art Party. Co-produced by Iron Road Collective & Kiranha Productions.
Back story and plans: Director Irenej and main actor Paul worked well together before in Scotland for Irenej’s MA course and decided to extend their collaboration to a feature film “How to Be a Writer”. Thanks to our indie guerilla work ethic we finished filming with main actors in 14 days. Yup, that’s very fast for a feature film. We are planning to send our film to festivals around the world, VOD platforms (Amazon, iTunes, Google play, Hulu...), TV stations and hopefully cinemas.
