FILM, TV & INTERNET
For TV and streaming services, InterZone Pictures is aiming at the US audience with a series of documentaries on offshore powerboat racing. We will also be filming attempts on well-known speed record runs.
The first of these will be from Monte Carlo to Cannes, in the south of France. Driver Jérôme Brarda and throttle-man Max Dessaux will drive Windcraft Racing’s Wild Eleven from the tiny principality to the capital of the Côte d’Azur.
We also plan speed record attempts on the other side of the Atlantic: Miami-Bimini-Miami; Miami to Key West; and around Long Island.
And so here we are — planning the launch of our first speed record attempt and laying down schedules and plans for the upcoming TV series.
Like speeding across the Caribbean or a stretch of the Med at 200kph, it could be a bumpy ride — but we aim to enjoy it and to bring to you quality films about this exciting and dangerous sport, on every screen from a massive home cinema to those tiny phone displays.
And then, after that, we will return to our first love and bring some damn good feature films to the big screen. There are three films on our development slate.
One is about a notorious Irish gun-runner and drug trafficker, well known for escaping the forces of law and order in at least half a dozen countries in the 1970s and 80s. Edgy and dark, it resonates with the second decade of Century 21.
Another is about an early 20th century rebel during Ireland’s struggle for independence. It’s the right moment for this: the year 2016, marked 100 years since the Easter Rebellion in Ireland began a five-year war against the British Empire which ended with British withdrawal in 1921.
And then there’s a dark and dystopian vision of a Europe of the near future — but it’s essentially a detective story about what happens when a man discovers his best friend is dead, and he can’t accept it is a suicide.
