Raya Films will be hosting a one-time screening of Do Something, Jake at the Courthouse Hotel on Thursday, 15 November at 19:00.
The 110-minute feature film was shot with a large international cast and multiple locations on ZERO BUDGET. Now this ambitious film is set to premiere in London on the 15th of November.
Do Something, Jake was shot with the in-kind help of local people, film graduates, a charity for disadvantaged youngsters, and local businesses. The film is gathering acclaim, not only for its unusual storyline but also the story behind its production. Unlike other ultra-low/micro-budget films that claim to be ‘no-budget’, Do Something, Jake literally had £0.00 for production, with the cinema DCP and BBFC classification (’15’) obtained via a crowdfunding campaign.
The production of award-winning screenwriter and producer Caroline Spence and director James Smith displays a mix of humour, noir, and criminal menace. Do Something, Jake offers a fresh angle on the UK crime thriller – a British film that does not feel ‘British’. This, helped by Hollywood-inspired screenwriting and bold cinematography, plus the appearance of award-winning New York actor Ed Bergtold (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), and post-production crews from Europe and Los Angeles. Do Something, Jake is the feature film debut for Raya Films.
