David Caesar gets trucking

Prime Mover, the new feature film by director David Caesar (Dirty Deeds, Mullet) and producer Vincent Sheehan (Little Fish, Mullet) commenced shooting earlier this week in Dubbo, New South Wales.
Prime Mover is a diesel charged love story about ambition, pressure, responsibility and the love shared by a man, a woman and his truck.
Rising talent Michael Dorman (Suburban Mayhem, Secret Life of Us and the soon to be released Acolytes and Daybreakers) stars alongside 2006 AFI Award winning actress Emily Barclay (Suburban Mayhem), the star of Sea Change and Look Both Ways William McInnes, current television goldenboy Gyton Grantley (Underbelly), two time AFI Award winner Anthony Hayes and iconic screen favourite Ben Mendelsohn.
As the cameras started rolling today, director David Caesar said, “It really is a dream cast and I’m excited to be working with such an energetic and talented group of actors.”
Film producer, Vincent Sheehan said, “David has such a knack for capturing thoughtful yet thoroughly entertaining slices of everyday life. His script Prime Mover is both funny and moving – and this time there’ll be action and a bit of magic realism to bring the wide open spaces of this unique world to life.”
Prime Mover will be one of the first Australian films to be released by Transmission Films – the newly formed Sydney-based film distribution company founded by Richard Payten and Andrew Mackie (formerly Joint General Managers of Dendy Films).
“We’ve worked with David and Vincent before and have such respect for their talents,” said Payten and Mackie. “Prime Mover has all the right ingredients to be something special. It’s a big-feel, diesel-powered love story, but it has a wonderful whimsical quality and characters that dare to dream big. Audiences are going to fall in love with this film next year.”
Prime Mover was financed by investment from the private sector, the Film Finance Corporation (FFC) and the New South Wales Film and Television Office (FTO) who also supported the film through the AURORA Script Workshop. Prime Mover will be one of the first Australian films utilising the new Producer Tax Offset Scheme with funds from new player, Media Funds Management.
Prime Mover will open in cinemas nationally in mid 2009.
