News on Luke Sparke’s second film has been drip served to cinephiles for well over a year. The last update DecayMag offered expressed the new poster art and a screening at American Film Market & Conferences (AFM) in Santa Monica, California. Film Mode Entertainment presented the film at this event in a way to promote the product for buyers.
Film Mode Entertainment handles foreign sales while Pinnacle Films will release Occupation in Australia and New Zealand.
Sparke along with the three hundred plus talented crew started principal photography in May 2017 and completed filming in July 2017. Filming occurred in and around on the Gold Coast, Australia.
A new trailer for Occupation released on the 17th of January 2018 via YouTube. Shudders went down my spine and it wasn’t from clips involving invading extraterrestrial forces nor was it the intense action sequences. I felt fear factor rise once the opening sequence unfolded involving a found footage aesthetic.
In the scene, a woman cites the unfolding tension over video. I had the initial impression Occupation was another induction to the found footage genre, a less than stellar form of visual storytelling. Yet, later scenes killed all doubt.
The trailer for Occupation had the correct recipe to promote the end product. I found the action sequences interesting, but it is professionalism on the special effect that looks jaw-dropping. Everything from explosions, an alien mother-ship, and other added graphics would rival Hollywood releases with ease.
Occupation is a much-expected film for many reasons. I find it intriguing to see more exciting content emanating from Australia. Over the past years, Horror and Science Fiction driven mediums have put a spotlight on the movie industry in this part of the world.
