Patience and just a small amount of begging has finally paid off. The film Dead Cat will be available for rental and download on Vimeo starting this Friday, March 11th. This is absolutely wonderful news.
The project was a labor of love - it was produced on a shoestring budget, with money raised through donations and fundraising events such as a speed dating night (very much in keeping with the film's theme). It hit the international film festival circuit and won scads of awards, including the British Lion Award for Achievement in Film from the British Independent Film Festival and Best Supporting Actor to Tom from the Southhampton Film Festival. It has gotten many glowing reviews such as this one:
Whilst the love story between Michael and Kristen is a touching one which is full of intrigue about the past as well as hope for the future, it is surprisingly the relationship between Michael and his mates (Tim, Marco & Sam played beautifully by Tom Mison, Johnny Palmiero and Sam Bern) that is the real heart of the film. By using a group of real friends as the central performers, Stefan Georgiu and his co writer Sam Bern (who also stars) have a great foundation of naturally relaxed friendship on top of which to build their touching and hilarious script, allowing them to really push the sense of a group of “men’s men” who for all their bravado and blokey banter, have a friendship run through with a real love and caring for each other that only the oldest of friendships can have.
Make sure to watch the charming trailer below and visit the spiffy new Dead Cat website for more info on the film.
