First Look Official Teaser
3 Mile Limit Film
Here is a first look at the official teaser for the New Zealand adventure drama film set in the 1960’s called ‘3 Mile Limit’ based on a true story. It’s produced and directed by Craig Newland in association with No.8 Films. Backed by a strong ensemble cast including leading man Matt Whelan, Dan Musgrove, Belinda Crawley and David Aston.
It's 1965 and rock music is shaking up the world but not in New Zealand. Richard Davis is a 25yr old journalist by day, but at night manages a local band called ‘The Yellow Sprockets’. He is determined to break the Government's monopoly on state broadcasting and bring rock n' roll and free speech to an oppressed younger generation, and at the same time hold onto the woman he loves.
3 Mile Limit is an iconic New Zealand true story based on the 1965 beginnings of Radio Hauraki on a boat called the TIRI in international waters in the Hauraki Gulf in Auckland. A power struggle developed between the government and these free spirited individuals who set out to change a system that starved a nation of modern pop music.
Director Craig Newland has pieced together a strong cast, which includes leading man Matt Whelan, (My Wedding and Other Secrets, and The Most Fun You Can Have Dying) who is supported by Dan Musgrove (Underbelly) and David Aston (Lord of The Rings, Underworld, The Matrix) as the Broadcasting Minister.
The screenplay written by Craig Newland and Andrew Gunn has been recognised as an international story that will travel beyond the shores of New Zealand by Ed Pressman, the legendary New York based producer (Wall Street starring Michael Douglas, and American Psycho) who loaned his support to the film and discussed its universal appeal with Craig Newland.
“Its great to be able to release the official teaser for 3 Mile Limit to give people a taste of what the film offers. It’s a story that has long been forgotten, and it’s great to be able to introduce the film to a younger audience”, said Newland.
