It’s always exciting to hear See Pictures is making a new film.
Screenwest and Screen Australia have announced production investment for Go Karts – A new family adventure film from See Pictures.
Go Karts is said to be an uplifting family film telling the story of a boy who must overcome tremendous odds and his own recklessness to achieve his dream of winning the Australian Go Kart Championship.
Go Karts will be directed by Owen Trevor (Top Gear) written by Steve Worland (Paper Planes) and produced by Jamie Hilton (Breath) and Sonia Borella for See Pictures.
Go Karts will be filmed in the WA’s stunning South West, a region popular with filmmakers with Breath and Jasper Jones shoot there recently.
“We are excited to be working with the writer of Paper Planes and director of Top Gear on this action-packed family movie set in the world of go karting,” said See Pictures’ Jamie Hilton and Sonia Borella. “We look forward to bringing this original Western Australian story to local and international audiences.”
“I’m so excited to be heading back home to shoot my first feature film after a few years working in the UK, Europe and the US, and especially to be working on the beautiful West Coast with exceptional Australian talent and crew,” said director Owen Trevor.
Go Karts will commence production in the first half of 2018.
