Separation Anxiety Hits A Milestone

Award-winning feature Separation Anxiety has hit over 50,000 views on it's Vimeo Page. 

On her own for the first time in years, Jeane tries to cope with the loneliness of life without her boyfriend, Arthur. She soon finds herself being pursued by a group of mysterious strangers. Is it all in her head or is something more nefarious going on?

Separation Anxiety is the first feature film by Miller & Deane. Shot in 2013 and completed in early 2014, the film is a throwback to the thrillers of the 1950s, dealing with loneliness, paranoia, and strangers lurking in the night.

The film, set and shot in Toronto, stars Sara Miller, Romaine Waite, Dave Metcalfe, and Joanne Jansen. The film’s theme, composed by Emily Klassen, was the winner of the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Audio-visual Composers in the Musical Theme category for 2014.

Watch Across All Galaxies Live: May 7, 2015, 8:30 pm Eastern

Live broadcasts are a tricky thing. Whether it’s brilliant or a disaster, they are always fun to watch. This Thursday, May 7th, at 8:30 pm Eastern, you’ll get to see Across All Galaxies Live.

This live streamed video broadcast is part of the CineCoup Film Accelerator, which was created to help Canadian indie filmmakers gain backing, both financially and socially, by tossing out the conventional film production process.

During the stream, the fictional radio show, Across All Galaxies will be played out live and without interruption (other than possible alien interference). You’ll hear about Messenger Prophecy Week and guests will provide tips on how to deal with your first close encounter with extraterrestrial life. So don’t miss it this Thursday, May 7th, at 8:30 pm Eastern.

Director Elvis Deane, writer Andrew Hopps and producer Sara Miller are the minds behind Across All Galaxies. Like many Canadian indie filmmakers, they are used to working with a small budget, but an alien movie requires a bit more — after all, aliens aren’t cheap, what with the interstellar commute. They’ve entered the project into the CineCoup 2015 competition, completing missions and gaining a fan-base that has helped them reach the top 30. 

The CineCoup Film Accelerator adopts a more social network friendly concept — throughout the competition, indie films like Across All Galaxies, High School Brawl, Namas-Die and their competitors, promote their projects with trailers, posters, conceptualization and more. CineCoup users vote, share and comment on the projects providing valuable feedback and creating buzz, until one project earns the $1M development deal.

Browse Across All Galaxies’s missions on their profile page, www.cinecoup.com/across-all-galaxies or sign up to their newsletter at tinyletter.com/acrossallgalaxies. Voting for the top 15 opens on Monday, May 4th. 

Director, Elvis Deane Interviewed by Quench Living

Quench knows it's cinema. After choosing Elvis Deane's Cinecoup project Across All Galaxies as one of their picks for the top 5, Quench decided to interview the director. Here are some quotes from the interview. You can read the full transcript at living.quench.me.

I believe in aliens, I just don’t know that they would bother with us or even know we’re here.
Alex Proyas has long been my biggest inspiration — Dark City being my favorite film. Even when he directed more mainstream films like I, Robot or Knowing, there was a level of perfection in the visuals that I hope to one day achieve. As much as a good movie is about the story, a great story backed up with stellar visuals is what pushes a film into greatness.
We’ve put a lot of time and energy thinking about this movie universe to just abandon it. We already have plans for a web series and television show that are in the same universe, but can stand on their own within this world.
