After a production spanning almost a decade, Strongman Pictures Entertainment in association with PCWe recently hosted the World Premiere screening of From Parts Unknown: Fight Light a Girl to a standing room only crowd at the Thornbury Theatre in Melbourne.
On October 6th 2006, 85 people came together for a 42 day shoot that spanned more than 6 months. The film went into production with less than $5,000, no director of photography, no editor, no composer, no sound designer, and no access to any kind of post-production facility. Add disappearing investors and a rouge department head running up excessive “research” costs. These difficulties would lead to seven years plus of post-production hell. A bad deal with the wrong people ultimately left the filmmakers without any sound files. With no more money and no resources left to salvage the film From Parts Unknown had to be shelved – indefinitely.
Fast-forward a few years and the director’s life took an unexpected turn – he accidentally made an international cult film. What started off as a short film, turned into a web series, turned into a feature film and finally became The World’s First Roller Derby Slasher Movie: MurderDrome. MurderDrome has headlined two film festivals and been distributed in Australia, New Zealand, The UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada and inspired over 50 fan organised screenings all over the world, it also made Brutal As Hell’s Top Ten films of 2014 list! This success gave From Parts Unknown a second wind and the filmmakers went back to the source material and rebuilt the film from scratch!
‘So I just had to make that film, lose it, make another film, then make FPU again to get her there. I do sure hope someone likes it.’ – Director, Daniel Armstrong
Fight like a girl, it’s the end of the world.
