The Last Bite - an art-house micro-budget feature film
The Last Bite is an experimental drama - full art-house - micro-budget feature film. Inspired by Lynch and Bergman, set in London town.
The Last Bite is a a micro-budget experimental - full art-house - drama film by Sebastiano Pupino. In 2016 he directed Gadget ( Watch it here! ), a sci-fi revolving around our increasing addiction to technology which was an amazing success. Gadget premiere has been held at 42nd Boston Sci-fi Film Festival and screened in many others ( Phoenix Film Festival, Philip K. Dick Film Festival, etc. ).
The Last Bite revolves around Carlos, a 3D artist stranded in London. Carlos struggles between the difficulties of modern human relationships and the unavoidable ghosts from his past. Everything changes when Carlos meets Veronica, a woman not properly coming from our world...
The Last Bite is an art-house feature film - although there's a clear story line with a strong main character, most of the film is heavily experimental and will involve amazing VFX created by Emanuele Serra ( Portfolio )
Sometimes a modern drama, sometimes a surrealist film - The Last Bite will try to answer some questions about why we do the things that we do.
Creativity, inspiration and improvisation are the keywords for the entire production.
We would like to create something different from the mainstream market and produce an art piece which will eventually be featured in high-profile film festivals.

The Last Bite will be shot entirely in London in a span of 3 days. We already have part of the budget but we still need more resources in order to cover expenses for the days of principal photography. Part of the finances will go to the post-production, which will take about 3 months.
Principal photography will happen in Summer 2018. The Last Bite is set to premiere in London in January 2019.
How can you make a micro-budget feature film?
We've calculated the minimum amount of budget necessary for a 3 days shoot with every expenses and cast & crew salaries covered. Plus a small amount will go to the post-production.
We have also a bunch of stretch goals if we'll manage to reach the first one!
Are there any other actors involved?
Yes, but we are still in the process of auditions.
So if you like the project and would like to contribute to make our dream come true just chip in - every penny counts!
