“Next Payday” screening at Olympus Cinema
Pack, Romie, and the other villagers of Pickletons return to the big screen as Next Payday premieres at the Olympus Cinema on Wednesday March 15th 2015. It is the third feature film to be released from the studios of Bajans In Motion (BIM) in eighteen months. The first two have already been featured in film festivals in Europe, North America and the Caribbean and have been picked up for International Online and DVD distribution in the coming months.
PAYDAY screened to sold-out cinema audiences in Barbados for 13 consecutive weeks, and was subsequently awarded Best Full Length Feature Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Script at the inaugural Barbados Visual Media Awards 2014.
“The fact that BIM has been in operation for less than two years and has already successfully completed three full feature movies is proof that Barbadian Filmmakers are very capable of establishing a film industry right here in Barbados. We are already creating, managing, producing and marketing Barbadian films for local and international audiences to enjoy.” said Ricky Redman one of the directors of Bajans In Motion Inc.
“As Filmmakers, we can create employment and generate foreign exchange if we are able to access the necessary investment and support. We most certainly do not need to import foreign talent and expertise to achieve this. This goes as much for movie making as it does for television advertising. We are capable of producing most of the Barbados advertisements that promote our country around the world and where we require expertise that is not available locally, we are most capable of determining exactly which resources we need to import.
Our local film industry simply requires available resources and support being invested in the locals who can capably produce and deliver to the required standard. This investment and support will better enable us to make more films that show our Barbados to the world in a way that only Barbadians can.”
Next Payday will be screening at the Olympus Cinema in the coming weeks two shows daily at 7:15 and 9:45 p.m.
