Home' LOTL : Sep 11 Contents Two men are found dead in a dumpster
outside of a well known g ay bar. One
has a stiletto pierced through his eye and
the wounds inflicted on the dead men sug g est
the actions of a trained killer. Both men had
previously had charg es dismissed on a heinous
hate crime after citing a ‘gay panic’ defense.
Dete ctive Richard Stamp has a crazy theor y.
Could the dishevelled cross-dressing Dorothy
sitting in his interrog ation room be responsible?
Thus begins the press release for a new
Aussie film The Silver Stiletto currently in pre-
production. International star of stag e and
screen, Billie Brown, whose list of film credits
includes Voyage of the Dawn Treade r and The
Dish has come on board to play the role of a
nemesis of the Silver Stiletto. “Bille is one of
Australia’s acting elite. He has such gravitas as
both a man and an actor, we’re honoured to have
him on board” says Guy Edmonds, actor and
producer of the film.
Casting for the film is near completion with
Christopher Sommers also attached to play bad
boy, Trevor Fenton. S ommers can be se en in All
my Friends are leaving Brisbane, Unfinished Sky,
The Horsemen, and television series The Strip and
Only one more part remains to be cast and
the filmmakers are hoping to attract a big name
Australian actor to play Detective Stamp.
In another important development, The
Silver Stiletto has recently been approved for
Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status through
the Australian Cultural Fund. This means that
interested persons can make a tax deductible
donation over $2 to help fund production.
Making a film is not cheap and the filmmakers
have put up their own mone y to g et the cameras
rolling . Despite the stellar cast and crew attached,
the film has no g overnment funding and ver y
few community funds exist for a project of this
type. The filmmakers are relying on the good will
and generosity of the cast and crew to get the
film made in time for the submission deadline to
at the end of September.
“A lot of talented people have come on board
and expresse d a willing ness to give their time
for free because of the strength of the idea and
the oppor tunity to work with the team we have
assembled. It would be ideal if we could pay them
but at the ver y least we need to cover their costs.
The truth is, this film is going to cost more than
Guy, Luke and myself can muster from our own
resources and our shooting schedule pre cludes
government funding which doesn’t really exist
anymore, so we have to go to our friends and the
community for help. Having DGR status helps
enormously with that process,” says producer
and writer, Craig Rossiter.
