ABOUT THE PROJECT
Teenage Kicks is a distinctive and compelling international theatrical arthouse film, from the award-winning team of Craig Boreham and Annmaree J Bell. 


SYNOPSIS
In the final moments of his 17th year, Miklós Varga’s world has come crashing down. His plans to run away and escape his claustrophobic migrant family have been brutally undone by the unexpected death of his older brother, Tomi. Only Mik knows the events that led to this tragedy and as far as he can see there is only one person to blame. Himself. He is suddenly torn between his desire to head north and start a new life with his best friend Dan, and his familial obligation to fix his broken family: torn between the life that he wants to have and the life that he feels he’s expected to have. Can he fill the aching void left by his adored sibling or is he toxic and destined to bring ruin upon everyone he loves? Teenage kicks is a journey through the minefield of adolescence, as Mik searches for a way to navigate through his guilt and explosive sexuality to become the man that he wants to become.



WHY WE'RE CROWD FUNDING!
We’re aiming to start production in mid 2013, BUT - in order to do that we need your support. We have some great investors willing to support us, and we are VERY CLOSE to having the funds that we need to make the film. BUT, we are still a little short, and that's why we need your help.

We need to raise the final $200,000 of our budget, to push the project into production.

If 2,000 supporters pledge $100 each, we'll hit our dream target!

We’ve set our Pozible goal at $67,000 because we want to make sure we reach it (if we don't hit our Pozible goal, we don't get any money!). BUT we don't want the pledging to stop there! Even if we reach $67,000, people can still pledge more to help us reach our dream target (and still reap their rewards!). We really need $200K to finalise the film’s budget.

You can pledge a small amount in return for rewards like DVD’s and posters or you can donate more and with a larger donation even become one of our Associate Producers.

Details of all supporter rewards are listed to the right!




THE FILM
Teenage Kicks is a story about that moment in your life where you transition from a teenager to an adult. It’s an explosive time; it’s a time where your sexuality is born; it’s a time when the world can turn on its head in a single day and everthing is extremely dramatic. You’re invincible and you can make terrible decisions; minute by minute.

Teenage Kicks is like the embodiment of being a teenager in Sydney in summer; it’s hot, it’s sun, skin, sea; it’s dramatic, it’s turbulent and before you know it, it’s over and you’re on the other side.

Bonnie Elliott - Director of Photography there’s something really fragile and beautiful about that time in a young person’s life and trying to capture that visually, on screen, is a really exciting proposition

The screenplay for Teenage Kicks has received praise from Laurie Webb, Development Executive, who has worked with producers such as Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella’s Mirage Enterprises, on films such as: The Interpreter, Catch a fire and Michael Clayton. 

The film has attracted outstanding young talent: Miles Szanto as our lead Mik, Bojana Novakovic as Annuska and Luke Arnold as Tomi. We are very excited to have such a dynamic cast already on board.

Miles Szanto - Mik (lead) the themes are so universal...you know everyone’s been young at some point and knows what it feels like to be terrified of how to move forward and forge a path for yourself that’s your own
