A special forces commando is chosen to go on a perilous mission, deep behind enemy lines. Kilroy is sent on a clandestine operation to uncover the mysteries of the Caldera Network. This mission thrusts Kilroy into a mystic and savage journey into the heart of the unknown. Join Kilroy as he battles ferocious beasts, ethereal gurus, and forbidding landscapes, using a group of surfers as cover to infiltrate and exact his revenge on the criminal thugs.
ABOUT THE PROJECT :
Forbidden Trim was shot over the course of four years. Shot around the world, the crew traveled to locations in Europe, Central America, and Australia, on a shoe-string budget, in between jobs and paychecks. Machete bearing locals, barbed wire fences, and remote surf locations are only a few of the many obstacles faced in pulling this project off. Shooting film is neither cheap nor easy, and the margin for error is very small. There’s no instant replay, especially in a water housing - where the filmer must exit the water to change the roll. Each roll contains about two and half minutes of shooting.
After returning from these trips, the film would be developed and transferred. It was only at this point did we know whether a roll was properly exposed, in focus or if we had anything usable.
Surfers doubled as actors and actors doubled as surfers. Each member of the cast and crew wore many hats during production.
A selection of the props and sets were meticulously handcrafted by Kilroy himself, using miniature models and replication techniques. Additionally, members of the cast were required to voice over scenes - as it was not possible to capture sound due to the noise of the cameras.
The Forbidden Trim Band worked late night, after a day at full time jobs, developing unique sounds to the ever changing edit. The film now has a one-of-a-kind soundtrack composed of eight songs.
This movie was made possible by the crew, family and friends, many of which have dedicated time, money and resources without pay. As the film is nearing completion, the needed funds will be used to finalize post production, mastering and mixing of the movie and soundtrack, DVD menu authoring and production, subtitle translation, festival entries, and premieres.
