"Throwback" - New Yowie movie in production !



Published on Apr 16, 2012 by
"Throwback" is the second feature film from Australian writer/director Travis Bain. His first feature, "Scratched" was one of the four finalists in the 2005 digiSPAA Digital Feature Film Festival.

Two modern-day treasure hunters -- Jack (Shawn Brack) and Kent (Anthony Ring) -- venture into the remote jungles of Far North Queensland in search of lost bushranger gold. But their adventure goes terribly awry when they are threatened by a savage creature, a legendary monster known as a Yowie, Australia's answer to Bigfoot. Together with a female park ranger named Rhiannon (Melanie Serafin) and a burnt-out ex-homicide detective, Jack and Kent find themselves locked in a battle for survival as the territorial Yowie tries to ensure they never leave its domain alive.

"Throwback" is currently in production in Cairns, Far North Queensland. Filming is taking place on a Canon HV20 HDV camcorder in 1080p resolution. The final film will be matted to CinemaScope 2.35:1. The final cut is due for completion in 2013.

"Throwback" is an homage to genre films of the '50s through to the '70s that shaped Travis Bain's childhood. Influences on "Throwback" include:

* The bigfoot drive-in films of the '70s, including "The Legend of Boggy Creek" and "Creature from Black Lake."
* Other '70s classics such as "Deliverance."
* '50s monster movies such as "Creature from the Black Lagoon."
* The westerns of Anthony Mann and Budd Boetticher.
* The neo-westerns of Walter Hill.
* The creature features of William Girdler, i.e. "Day of the Animals" and "Grizzly."
* The films of Terrence Malick.

A full trailer for "Throwback" will be released later in 2012. To find out more about "Throwback", please visit www.travisbain.com.au
