Following the success of their film The Black Gloves, director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly are back with a new Gothic tale, Automata. And they are willing to go crazy heights to get this film made.
The film centers on an antique dealer sent to authenticate the “Infernal Princess”, a three-hundred-year-old clockwork doll with a notorious history. He soon comes under its corrupting influence along with his stepdaughter Rose.
Jamie Scott Gordon (The Black Gloves, Bonejangles), Alexandra Nicole Hulme (The Black Gloves, Lord of Tears), Erich Redman (The Danish Girl), Jonathan Hansler (The Devil’s Business), and Victoria Lucie (Dartmoor Killing).
Director Lawrie Brewster said, “Automata is a wild, Gothic thrill-ride inspired by the decadence of Ken Russell’s Gothic, as well as the sensual expressionism of Argento’s Suspiria and Bava’s Black Sabbath.”
The film is produced by Hex Studios and their partners Dark Dunes Productions along with Needle’s Eye Productions. Nick Ford, Greg Orsi, and Richard Pate executive produce.
Automata has currently raised £80,000 of their £100,000 goal through their Kickstarter campaign. With the end of their campaign approaching, director Lawrie Brewster has promised that if the campaign raises £1000 in the next 24 hours, he will release an utterly absurd and hilarious video featuring Lawrie himself performing sixties hit ‘MacArthur Park’. Judging by the images the folks at Hex have sent over, this is perhaps the weirdest Kickstarter promo ever made, and we need to see it!
