Films in Post-Production and Development

Two of our no-budget feature films produced with real locations, and ‘street shooting’ techniques are now in post-production. Do Something, Jake, a drama-thriller shot in Leicestershire, is an offbeat tale of a social misfit who becomes embroiled with undesirable mafia-style criminals, whilst Agent Kelly is a female-driven smouldering thriller set in London and Spain.

Update: Thriller Surveilled is now in pre-production. This will be the last of a trio of three innovative no-budget feature films produced by Raya Films.

Filming with Chris Sanders

This week, we had the pleasure to work with British actor, Chris Sanders, on action and dialogue scenes for a feature film thriller [name to be announced]. An exciting addition to our slate, the scenes required dynamic filming techniques and a fair degree of improvisation from the small team of actors.

Chris comes from a PR and writing background and is also working on a short film of his own soon to be released.

Eddie comes from a theatre background and brought fine movement and pace to the scenes. He is planning to further his acting studies in London next year, and we certainly hope to work with this upcoming talent again in the near future.

Raya Films’ 2017 Feature Films

A busy start to the year has seen great progress being made with a number of our feature film projects.

Set in London and Andalucía, The Finca, has undergone a rewrite to increase the budget scale and transform the genre to suspense-thriller. World-class named actors and crew are now interested or attached. Filming dates to be announced.

Another thriller, Escape the Confines, is also being cast for named talent in key roles. This fast-paced genre film has a sophisticated plot, a fair degree of physicality, and complex characters – presenting challenging and tantalising roles for actors.

Do Something, Jake is set for release this summer with a première and follow-up screenings. Do not miss an opportunity to be involved in this outrageous and unique no-budget feature film project. How on earth did anyone shoot a film with multiple locations, large international cast, on no budget in just three weeks? Well, we did, and it’s out this year!

Screener for ‘Do Something, Jake’ complete

A year ago, on a cold, misty morning in an English village, a group of film actors and enthusiasts came together to begin production on ‘Do Something, Jake’, an innovative ‘no budget’ feature film. Unlike most low or no-budget projects, this film was extremely challenging and ambitious, with multiple locations, a large cast, and complex story line.

Fortunately, many local businesses, individuals, and organisations within the locality of Loughborough, Quorn, Coalville, and Leicestershire embraced the project wholeheartedly and made the intense three-week shoot possible.

As with many film projects, the post-production phase has presented (and continues to present) even bigger challenges, however, a core team of people located across the U.K. has offered their time to persevere on this unique project. Now we have a solid trailer and full screener to present to the world.

Let’s see how far ‘Do Something, Jake’ can go!

This film is now seeking sales representation and distribution, please click here for more details.

Post-production on DO SOMETHING, JAKE is progressing nicely and it’s full steam ahead to finish a screener and trailer in time to promote it at Cannes this May.

We are continuing development and casting for our psychological horror, THE FINCA, which we plan to move into production later this year.

Higher up the budgetary scale is GUILTY IN ANDALUCÍA for which we have named talent interest. The screenplay has proved to be very popular with industry professionals on both sides of the Atlantic, and we look to move forward into production in 2017.

We are always willing to hear from other producers interested in collaborating with our projects, especially in terms of international co-production. So, if you are a producer with a track record in feature film, please contact us with an introduction, and do check out the other material on our feature film slate
