Devil Starts Shooting

Devil Starts Shooting

March 7th, 2006

The first feature film from HEADSTRONG will start shooting on March 12th.
Chris Stapp and Matt Heath are better known to New Zealand audiences as the individuals responsible for the country's most notorious television show: Back of the Y Masterpiece Television, which caused a lot of controversy when first aired.

For their highly anticipated feature film debut they are joined by experienced producer Karl Zohrab and a highly skilled team of folk who are all determined to make The Devil Dared Me To one of New Zealand's funniest and most outrageous features to date. Set in the wild world of kiwi stuntmen and stuntwomen, this gasoline soaked action/comedy is set to explode at the end of 2006.

The feature film has already got deals in place for major backing and marketing support from Panasonic, V, C4 and The Rock FM for the films eventual theatrical release.

In a piece of nifty self-promotion the team has a website wherein members of the public/ companies can actually buy real estate in the film by purchasing badges that the stunt folk in the film wear.

The Official website is:

  • Devil Dared Me To
  • Go on, buy a piece of NZ cinematic history - they dare you. Offer ends in 2 days.
