Following a SELL-OUT World Premiere, ambitious zero-budget feature film “Do Something, Jake” is to enjoy a glitzy London Premiere.
London, November 2018 – Raya Films will be hosting a one-time screening of Do Something, Jake at the Courthouse Hotel on Thursday, 15 November at 19:00.
British film industry organisations often state that they're looking for something different/'out of the box', and Do Something, Jake is certainly that.
On 20 September 2018, a packed Odeon in Loughborough, experienced an incredible achievement - the World Premiere of a 110-minute feature film shot with a large international cast and multiple locations on ZERO BUDGET. Now this ambitious film is set to premiere in London on the 15th November.
"...gripping with plenty of humour... absolutely Brilliant!"
“... fantastic to see the reception your film had”
“One great film. Loved it sooo much...I was smiling the whole way through... the London event will be awesome.”
Do Something, Jake was shot with the in-kind help of local people, film graduates, a charity for disadvantaged youngsters, and local businesses. The film is gathering acclaim, not only for its unusual storyline, but also the story behind its production. Unlike other ultra-low/micro budget films that claim to be 'no-budget', Do Something, Jake literally had £0.00 for production, with the cinema DCP and BBFC classification ('15') obtained via a crowdfunding campaign.
The audience of 263 people remained glued to their seats during the World Premiere screening on 20th September in Loughborough, an event that was supported and attended by the local MP and many film lovers.
Audience members described the experience as "thrilling", "gripping", and "inspiring" and ended the screening with cheers and applause never before experienced by the local Odeon staff.
With a mix of humour, noir and criminal menace, Do Something, Jake offers a fresh angle on the UK crime thriller - a British film that does not feel ‘British’. This, helped by Hollywood-inspired screenwriting and bold cinematography, plus the appearance of award winning New York actor Ed Bergtold (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), and post-production crews from Europe and Los Angeles. Do Something, Jake is the feature film debut for Raya Films.
ABOUT DO SOMETHING, JAKE
Jake is an introvert, illiterate, and unable to hold down a basic job for more than a few days. Unbeknown to those around him, however, he is intelligent and ingenious - strengths he uses to secretly observe his neighbour, Alice, the woman he loves. But Alice lives with her boyfriend, Guy, a small-time criminal and drug pusher. Events escalate when Jake crosses the line from Alice's voyeur to direct manipulation of Guy's illicit dealings. Things come to a head when Alice is assaulted and abducted. After an unconvincing appeal to the Police, Jake decides to rescue Alice in his own ingenious, yet ultimately dangerous, way.
