DO SOMETHING, JAKE enjoys worldwide release on DVD/Blu-ray


Raya Films (Writing)

London, October 2019 – Raya Films and Meridian Releasing Group (MRG) are pleased to announce the release on DVD/Blu-ray of crime drama, DO SOMETHING, JAKE starring Jamie Alderson, Ed Bergtold and Mia Mills.

Consider Jake (Jamie Alderson); he’s a good-looking guy, but a quirky introvert with learning disabilities. Jake is infatuated with his neighbour, Alice (Mia Mills), whom he secretly watches yet never approaches. Unbeknown to anyone, however, Jake possesses hidden skills, which he must draw on when Alice becomes embroiled in the world of New Jersey crime boss, Morten (Ed Bergtold), and her very life threatened.

Now, a terrifying game unfolds where desire is dark, knowledge is deadly and the man who has nothing has nothing to lose.

Shot on zero-budget, and directed by James Smith, with a screenplay by producer, Caroline Spence, Do Something, Jake has enjoyed sell-out theatrical screenings, a festival run and Best Feature Award.

Throughout the filming process the producers were able to offer work experience, on-the-job training, referrals and IMDb credits to university graduates and people of all ages wishing to make a start in the film industry. They also worked with a local charity to give talks, workshops and advice to disadvantaged youngsters interested in movie production.

“The story behind the production of this film would make a movie in itself,” explains James Smith. “Post production was a long and hard road, and by the time we were ready to screen the film, we didn’t know what we had. So to get such a positive response from audiences and critics has been amazing.”

“Do Something, Jake stands out because it hits all the elements that most independent films fall flat on.” Says Todd Rodgers, CEO of MRG, “The performances are solid and believable, the pacing is excellent and the shot selection really moves the story forward.”

Do Something, Jake is now available through Amazon, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, WOW_HD and many more. Online streaming/download (VOD) release is scheduled for later in the year.

Certificate 15 Running Time 110 minutes
