As the Screenwest and Lotterywest supported feature film thriller Avarice wraps its final week of principle photography in Perth, Western Australia this weekend, it will mark a big step forward for local screenwriters and producers Adam Enslow and Dane Millerd, our very own Head Editor of the Forbes and Parkes Phoenix Newspaper team.
The multi-million dollar action thriller, helmed by John V. Soto (The Gateway, Needle) and produced by Tim Maddocks (Terminus), stars Gillian Alexy (The Americans, NCIS: New Orleans, Damages) and Luke Ford (Animal Kingdom, Red Dog, The Mummy III). The story follows a woman (Alexy) as she attempts to rescue her cryptocurrency trading husband (Ford) after he is abducted during a vicious home invasion.
For Millerd, it is his second feature film having written, produced and directed Bounty Film’s 2015 found footage horror indie monster film There’s Something In The Pilliga (Amazon Prime) while Enslow is hard at work with film, music and his sound recording studio in Forbes where he also resides.
“It’s humbling and exciting seeing it all come to fruition,” Millerd said. “John and all the team have been tremendous and we can’t wait to see it all done,” he said.
Are there any plans for more films? “We are already onto the next one!”
