David Ngo’s Rabbit starts shoot in Adelaide
15 September 2016
Filming started this week in Adelaide on South Australian producer David Ngo’s new feature film Rabbit.
Rabbit was the winning pitch at the 2015 Melbourne International Film Festival’s 37 South Market where it was selected to attend London’s Production Finance Market and secured initial private funding.
Just one year later the film is now in production with additional support and investment provided by the South Australian Film Corporation.
Written and directed by Luke Shanahan, the film stars Australian actors Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby, Rectify), Alex Russell (Goldstone, Cut Snake) and Jonny Pasvolsky (Mortdecai) alongside Belgian actress Veerle Baetens (The Broken Circle Breakdown) and Adelaide-based English actor Charles Mayer (Ip Man 2).
Rabbit is a psychological thriller exploring the link between identical twins and their ability to communicate telepathically.
Almost a year after her identical twin disappears, 25-year-old medical student Maude Ashton is haunted by visions of her abduction. Convinced she is still alive, Maude follows the clues to a derelict caravan park where she discovers her fate is intrinsically linked to that of her sister.
Rabbit has become the fourth feature film to be shot in South Australia this year, and is among the eight feature films and one major TV series to be produced in South Australia over the last twelve months.
