My names Fabrizio Federico, I love how you represent cinema, so I figured I’d tell you about my feature film ‘Black Biscuit’.
The film was shot on mobile phones, and children’s cameras. I decided to create a different type of film with no script, no money, and a cast of non-actors (homeless people, sex workers, handicapped folk, pimps and an ex child ping pong star).
To raise funds I life modeled and went from door to door asking people to donate 1gbp. It was made under the PINK8 manifesto: http://blackbiscuit101.moonfruit.com/#/pink8-manifesto/4556009845
My aim is to inspire upcoming filmmakers to expore a more non-linear style of cinema.
I dont believe in relying on outside funds in order to make a feature film. Im taking on an enfant terrible stance, this is the Gutter Cinema movement.
The police harassed the hell out of me when I was making the film, and for that reason I want everyone to see it.
I have shown the film to directors Harmony Korine, Bruce LaBruce, Jonathan Caouette and they have all really liked what they’ve seen.
Attached are some film stills and a press release, I am happy to mail you a copy of the DVD if interested in viewing.
The film is complete and will be screened at Raindance Festival in September.
Would you be interested in doing a story on the film ?
Regards and respect
Got a Press Release, something to Plug, or a Screener available for review (or some combination of the three)? Ok, don’t get all crazy about it. Just click here and give me the details (what, when, where, and a link, for starters) – I’ll handle the rest.
