Presenting... our TRENCH teaser poster!
Cinema Viscera's debut feature film, the girl-powered, monochrome, modern-day, Melbourne-set comedy/film noir Trench is now completed and submitting to film festivals around the globe!
As we're a few months away from unveiling it on a screen near you, we're incredibly excited to whet your appetite with a look at our cheeky teaser poster -- thanks to the work of Melbourne-based graphic designer Julyan Stephens -- giving you an indication of the tools of Sam Slade's trade... (such as it is...)

Are you following Cinema Viscera on Instagram? It's a mixture of sneak peeks at stuff we've got coming up, film-related ephemera and random shots from the brain of our writer/director/co-chair Paul Anthony Nelson.
Sub-atomic budgets. Explosive ideas.
Cinema Viscera's first short film in five years, Cigarette, made a successful World Premiere at Monster Fest, Australia's biggest international cult film festival on November 27th, 2016, playing in front of the Australian Premiere of Paul Schrader's new crime flick, Dog Eat Dog, which stars Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe. Felt so great to see our actors and crew see their terrific work on the big screen in the lovely Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn.
We were so ridiculously honoured to be included in what was a cracking Monster Fest lineup this year, and had an amazing time at the whole festival -- festival director Kier-La Janisse and her crack team of operatives put on a great show and made us feel incredibly welcome. It'll remain a special memory for us all.
Starring the ace Rebecca Fortuna and Ryan Heath, Cigarette is a cautionary fable from the mind of writer/director/editor Paul Anthony Nelson; a suspense drama played out amongst the wreckage of modern gender relations. When a woman invites a man into her home after a date, she treats him to an impromptu striptease -- but is this a seduction... or an evaluation? And will he fail horribly?

How did we get the confidence to get Trench up and running so quickly?
We are indebted to the Lean Filmmaking Accelerator Program, run by the lovely sibling duo of Kylie and David Eddy, which guided us through an accelerated pre-production period.
As part of this process, we wrote the first draft of the film in three weeks, and shot a "rough draft" version of the full feature (currently 83 minutes!) in two days -- as a valuable tool to see how the script walks and talks, and to gain some targeted prospective audience feedback for the next draft of the film. Then, we made some edits on the script, did some reshoots, and tested it again!
