Many of you joined me in following Duncan Lacroix’s recent visit to New Zealand. He wasn’t the only visitor to Graham McTavish’s doorstep. The screenwriter and one of the actors in the ensemble cast of Graham’s upcoming film and directorial debut, This Guest of Summer, Paul Kavanaugh, was visiting and doing some pre-production work with Graham. I recently had a response from one of the co-producers from the crowdfunding page, that yes, filming is still on for November 2019, postponed as all film crews in New Zealand and Australia seem to be booked solid for a really big couple of films. No names here, but there is one franchise that is sucking up all the resources from both countries, and you can find that out elsewhere.
A recent Tweet from Paul Kavanaugh kicked off the preproduction work. It promised to be a very quirky, mysterious, creep-filled film.
Graham has been busy with other projects while he eagerly waits to get filming on his passion project, and directorial debut. The crowd funding officially ended, however you can still contribute to the film I believe, contact them via Indiagogo.
Other actors joining the ensemble are Stephen Walters as Catcher, Lacroix as Flayal, Adam Brown (The Hobbit) as Miss Lady, Dean O’Gorman as Michael (The Hobbit), and Kavanagh is Chris. You can check out some of the other cast here. It’s a male character heavy production, with Miss Lady as the powerful balancer here. Can’t wait for this performance.
