‘The Canary’, an upcoming 2021 featurette, is seeking the support of WA residents and businesses to help make this Australian-cast-away-tale a memorable and successful film that supports local cast and crew!

ABOUT THE PROJECT:‘The Canary’ promises to be a visceral and compelling period drama that utilizes Western Australian cast, crew, locations and businesses. With a timely and ever-relevant story surrounding the gender roles, female empowerment and defying social standards, the film, created by a young female writer and director pledges to make a big impact.

Set during the eighteenth century, ‘The Canary’ follows protagonist Claire, who, following the sinking of a transport vessel, is set adrift onto the Australian open ocean. With little but a lifeboat and caged canary beside her, Claire must find the power to defy the social standards of her time; utilising her inner-strength, determination to survive and unrealised ingenuity to endure survival on the expansive ocean.

Written and co-directed by award-winning scriptwriter Emilie Lowe (winner of the MyStateFilm Festival and the STUFFit Film Festival), a 21-year-old filmmaker from the northern suburbs, ‘The Canary’ provides a voice to the female struggle; with Claire battling against both her own inner-demons, that of her hostile environment and those of her social standing.

With co-director Peter Renzullo (winner of the Los Angeles American Golden Picture Awards, Five Continent International Film Festival and the L’Age d’Or International Film Festival) behind the camera, and with an array of WA cast and crew, ‘The Canary’ promises to be a timely and hugely entertaining featurette; shedding light upon issues that are eerily relevant in the current climate.image

 

MISSION:‘The Canary’ will be a topical featurette for all Australians to enjoy, one that communicates that societal ideas believed to be long overcome are still very prevalent today. The film aims to create a narrative that leaves the lasting impression on all audience members that we all have the strength to overcome obstacles deep within us – whether that be obstacles of society, internal struggle or being cast away into the open ocean!

The featurette will be created utilising all Western Australian cast and crew, providing opportunities for locals to experience life on a film set, while also showcasing WA’s incredible talent. With the help of local businesses and residents, we hope to create a film that hits the festival circuit with great success.

SUPPORT: All money donated to the project will be injected straight into the film’s creation. Costume design, visual effects, prosthetics, sound design and locations will benefit greatly from any amount donated, and we appreciate any support that can be provided.

The cast and crew of ‘The Canary’ thank you so much for your support – both big and small – it allows for such an important film to be made, and for WA’s diverse landscape, incredible talent and film making ability to be showcased to the world.
