I have some very exciting news to share with you today – I’m doing costumes for a new independent feature film called “Only the Young Die Good”.
A Southside Productions Film, it’s a film noir set in Melbourne 1949 and Circa will be providing original vintage for all the characters.
From the website:
Only The Young Die Good is the third and latest feature film by award-winning Writer/Director Dominic Deacon and Producer Anna Young. Currently in pre-production, production is scheduled to commence in Melbourne, Victoria in November 2011. The film delivers a sexy, action-packed spin on classic 1940s Hollywood and Film Noir.
Private eye Jack Mitchum is a good man in a dirty town. When the beautiful and wealthy Valerie Richmond requests that Jack investigate her philandering husband, Jack instead becomes witness to his murder.
Identified at the scene, Jack has only days to prove his innocence before he takes the fall. His investigation takes him deep into Melbourneâ€™s seedy underground. A world of shady bars, wild women and rampant violence.
Jack has to play rough & dirty just to stay alive as he learns that in this world, Only The Young Die Good.
