There are only two more screenings scheduled for Dane Millerd’s There’s Something in the Pilliga. If you’re anywhere near Young or Cairns over the next few days then you can find screening details below.
There’s Something In The Pilliga is a feature film shot as Point Of View (POV) with one camera. The film is shot as a real life account of four people who become stranded in the Pilliga Forest in Northern NSW, Australia. One by one they are systematically hunted down by a creature known as the Jingra.
The film has an interesting back story, with twists and turns, that adds to the intrigue and leads to an open conclusion depending on the viewer’s interpretation of the events.
There’s Something In The Pilliga was filmed from May 21-29, 2011 in the Pilliga State Forest and surrounds. It consisted of Special FX make up, special effects editing, state of the art equipment and a dedicated full time cast and crew of 22 with another 11 part-time cast and crew.
No feature film has been made on this subject before; thereby the film claims exclusivity on this topic. Furthermore, no Australian film has been filmed using one camera POV in this genre.
