Producers of “PAYDAY,” set to thrill with new movie: ‘Two Smart’ with Soca Queen
Producers of the local hit movie PAYDAY, Let’s Do This Films, are doing it again. The Barbadian film production company has just wrapped up the principal filming of their latest project, the psychological thriller “Two Smart.”
Once again writer and co-director Shakirah Bourne has kept it all local with a Barbadian focus and cast which will see Soca Queen Alison Hinds making her debut on the movie scene, along with George Gill and Saran Lashley who both have some acting experience. Shot in two locations in the parishes of St. John and St. Peter, the feature film is one that Ms. Bourne promises will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. “I wanted to see if I could write a feature film that was set in one unconventional location with just three characters. This movie has multiple plot twists and will keep the audience in suspense down to the final scene. Scandal fans will love Two Smart.”
The movie centres around a disgruntled married couple and a hitchhiker trapped in a gully during a tropical storm. The night reveals a tangled web of betrayal, and a tortured past.
Ms. Bourne added that the three actors were all committed and passionate to their roles and were very easy to work with, even willing to place themselves in difficult situations both emotionally and physically.
Co-Director Ricky Redman said that the production of Two Smart was a lot more ambitious than PAYDAY. “We raised the bar with this movie on every level and whereas we made it this far, it is not sustainable for us as a production company to make movies without full funding for the production. Once we have filmed and edited we then have to find the funding to launch market and distribute here in Barbados and abroad. I think the thing about that is even with PAYDAY we’ve had to put some opportunities on hold to be able to finance the production of two smart. We went ahead because it is important for us to continue creating quality Caribbean content.”
