POWER SURGE: FEATURE FILM/THRILLER
PRODUCERS: Anna Fawcett, Mark Lazarus (Australian Rules) and Todd Fellman (Dear Claudia). Top level TV commercial director David Deneen will shoot it as his first feature film. Shooting is expected to commence in early 2005.
LOGLINE: Two killers on the run fall into a symbiotic relationship with a rich agoraphobic.
SYNOPSIS: Andrew Shepherd lives in an isolated house in the Australian bush. He is severely agoraphobic. For nearly a year, ever since the relationship with his fiancee, Crystal, ended, he has not been able to set foot outside. Andrew has no friends, just an occasional maid, gardener and delivery boy. A giant satellite dish on his roof feeds broadcasts from all over the world into a bank of TV monitors, 24 hours a day.
Andrew's dull, sterile world is changed forever when a Bonny & Clyde couple of losers, Ron and Dale, literally crash into it. Ron has blown away two people in a twelve-hour speed-induced trail of mayhem. Stripper Dale doesn't quite know how things came to be this way. She was trying to get Ron out of trouble, get up to Queensland, start a fresh life. But all that was ripped apart by the twin barrels of Ron's sawn-off-shotgun. Now she's running for her life.
