Interesting dilemma

Post by Gob »

It's one thing to want to make a movie in the suburbs of Canberra.

It's another thing to actually complete it and create something that is truly cinematic.

It should come as no surprise that Canberra's Goran "Tiny" Srejic has achieved just this, his first feature film, The Choice, in the can and looking for an outlet to screen it.

The former co-owner of The Green Shed has always dared to dream big. His personal motto is "If you can, you should".

And with his first feature film, he could and he did.

The movie was shot at his home in Melba last year.

The Choice is about a hard-working young dad who is diagnosed with a rare brain tumour. The doctors have discovered, however, it gets smaller at night.

He's given a choice: be put in an induced coma for 25 years and then live out the rest of his life peacefully, or die, untreated, within a decade. Does he want to enjoy life now with his wife and daughter or later, when his daughter may not even remember him. What would you do?

Tiny hopes enough people will view the trailer and share it as much as possible on social media, building momentum and, hopefully, persuading one of the behemoth streaming services such as Netflix or Stan to show it.

It's all about people power pushing the trailer, which hints at just how good The Choice has turned out.

"Everyone always says, 'Oh my god! It's so much better than I thought it would be'," he said, with a laugh.

Interesting chap...

That seems like an interesting plot; worth a look.

In my movie, after doctors tell him the tumor gets smaller at night, he comes up with a great idea and he moves the family back and forth from Arctic nights to Antarctica nights every 6 months for 25 years.

The movie might not be as interesting so it might need some zombies thrown in.
