"Committed" is a story of a guy who is being pressured to propose to his girlfriend and his chance meeting with a runaway bride. It is one of the most exciting, refreshing, and intriguing plots we've heard and seen in years. But beyond the movie, there are other commitments that the production crew was trying to show the world. The commitment to stay passionate about filmmaking despite budget constraints and despite being a David in a Goliath movie industry monopolized by mainstream Hollywood. The commitment to not just make a film but also to promote their own love for Cyprus and how to best showcase its many beautiful locations in one creative storyline. The commitment to see the project through against all odds.
Within every problem lies an opportunity. When the crisis hit Cyprus last June, cinema funding was the first thing to go and local filmmakers had to become creatively resourceful in order to keep working.
I designed a film that could be made on a shoe-string budget without losing its substance. With a crowd-funding campaign, the support of the Hellenic Diaspora and an angel investor, the film was funded and shot over the summer. It is expected to be complete by the end of the year.The film, entitled Committed, is a road trip movie set in Cyprus about a chance meeting between a man being pressured to propose to his girlfriend and a runaway bride. It is an English-language romantic comedy about love, marriage and commitment.
The film was shot entirely in Cyprus across 25 locations in a record 17 days. It stars Melia Kreiling and Orestes Sophocleous.
Committed is a co-production between the Pouroulis Foundation, AMP Filmworks and Stelana Kliris, in association with Fullmoon Productions, AB Seahorse Film Productions and Hellenic TV.
We always say that inspiration comes from everywhere and we hope that Committed--in all of its aspects would inspire you as well.
