The Initiative is an independent film company located in Brisbane, Australia & was established in 2008 by four passionate filmmakers.
The Umbrella is our first feature film. The story follows a young man, Jared, who hides from pain with the use of an imaginary umbrella. When his umbrella becomes a danger to himself, will he let go?
It is now available on iTunes in Australia/New Zealand & on Flix Premiere in the US/UK.
Our second feature film, Out Of The Woods, is currently in Post Production - we're in the middle of re-shoots, colouring, sound sweetening, composing & more.
The trailer will be available soon. If you would like to help us finish this film, we'd appreciate any donation you can make towards the project. Follow this link to donate now.
When we're not busy making feature length films, we've also written, produced & edited several short projects.
Dig is one I'm especially proud of. It was done for the 48 Hour Film Project, meaning we wrote, produced, & edited it all within the above time-frame.
