Covid-19 has really put my Business on hard times but I’m not the only one in this situation.
Normally during this period I would be filming Soccer on the weekends, what is kinda doing more of my head in is the boredom I want to make films or photography. But reader as you aware we are all set to Social Distancing, and the Borders are Closed.
I could work on more of the Turramulli film script/outline and even do some concept art for but doing a horror film during this periods seems really depressing.
So me and my partner, have began creating the story outline for The Quinkin Project. Also bringing on some other collaborates for the project for the Aboriginal angle of the story as I don’t have a Aboriginal background thought it would be best for them to review and add to the project.
Also have worked on some new concept art. Still a work in progress but it is a good idea of how I would like Turramulli to look in the project.
Also found some potential Producer for this feature they’re called Galactic Baby and have worked on TV shows for ABC and Web series.
So far the cast of characters are –
MOLLY – A mixed heritage Aboriginal child around the age of 8 or 9 years old who has been living in a Missionary for the last 4 years. (She is the first of the Stolen Generation.)
TURRAMULLI – Main Antagonist is a giant Yeti like creature that is stalking and killing the Missionary Family (it’s a force of Nature).
THE FAMILY – The Family is made up of a Pastor who is the FATHER, they have a BABY about two years old….
QUINKINS – They are all black elongated DREAMTIME creatures, they do not wish to do any harm to anyone or anything. They’re the polar opposite of TURRAMULLI.
I’ve started development of a feature film script, specifically in the Horror Genre, it’s based on the Aboriginal Dreamtime Stories of the Quinkin. The Quinkin are similar to the Yetis or Abominable Snowman of European Folklore.
I’m not going to write this without the input of the First People of Australia.
The look of the film, will be a cross between the movie The Witch (2015) and The Proposition (2005), and will be a road horror movie similar to Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) but set during the 19th/20th century. The plot follows a Missionary Family and that is stalked and hunted by the Turramulli.
Also helping me co-write this is my partner Olive Pit.
