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

In our rush to clear up after the hectic 3-4 week shoot, we did not have time to attend the wrap party and we soon fled the area to carry on with other business.

Apparently, the cast and crew have sent cards with lovely messages to our address. Thank you so much for these, and also for the lovely flowers bought for Caroline – it means a lot that our efforts were appreciated and motivates us further to deliver a great film!

Film Editor required for ‘Do Something, Jake’

We have just wrapped production of our experimental feature film, ‘Do Something, Jake’. We are now seeking a professional editor with feature film editing experience to do justice to the excellent screenplay, fine acting performances, and dynamic cinematography.

Actor, Ed Bergtold, (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; When the Night Falls; Some Kind of Justice)

Working closely with writer-director, James Smith, this will be a challenging, highly creative post-production project with potential for festival and mainstream distribution.

For more details see the official IMDb page and contact the team at Raya Films

Games Footage Required for Movie

In November 2015, we are producing a highly innovative community-based feature film set in Leicestershire, England. In certain scenes, the main protagonist is playing a computer game within which there is extensive shooting – firing at various targets, either military or of an alien/science fiction variety (the character will be aiming a gun at a television screen, rather than using a games console).

Do Something, Jake on IMDb

With this in mind, we are looking to connect with a games company or designer who would be interested in providing ‘footage’ from this style of game and rights for us to use it within the film. There is no budget available for this, however, we intend to market the film extensively at film festivals such as Berlin, and Cannes, and go on to secure sales and distribution. The games company or individual developer involved can expect excellent exposure for their product as well as credits and/or branding within the movie.

Contact us for more details.
