TWELVE DARK NOONS
A psychedelic movie for the apocalypse in twelve chapters. Featuring Naked On The Vague and a Clock of 12's. Shot in the Outback of Australia.
Twelve Dark Noons is a collaborative short film featuring Lucy Phelan and Matthew Hopkins of Sydney, Australia’s Naked On The Vague. Produced by Caleb Braaten of Sacred Bones Records, directed by Jacqueline Castel of Future Primitive Films, with the collaborative work and art of Shawn Reed of label Night People and band Wet Hair.
Principle photography will take place near Sydney and Melbourne, Australia in the summer of 2010. Along with shooting a short film, we will be shooting a music video for the song “Clock of 12's” off an upcoming Naked On The Vague 12” EP release on Sacred Bones Records. The music video will be released online and later collected on a Future Primitive Films DVD.
Naked On The Vague will score the short film before it premiers theatrically (details TBA), in the fall of 2010. From there the film will be submitted to film festivals worldwide.
This project offers a rare opportunity to merge underground music and cinema. We’d like to offer you a role in this process, while still offering limited, one of a kind records and artwork to contributors, most of which will be exclusive to this fundraising platform.
Money raised will be used to cover transportation costs from the U.S. to Australia, film equipment rentals, color 16mm film stock and processing costs, and prop construction.
