SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ WORLD PREMIERE


SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ HONORED AT 2008 BIG ISLAND FILM FESTIVAL

Big Island Film Festival, which celebrates independent narrative filmmakers and their movies, has selected Coverage, Ink's first production, SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ, as part of its slate of films. Only 47 short and feature films from around the world were chosen.

A monsterous comedy with heart, SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ demonstrates what devotion to Japanese monster movies can do to a marriage and a career. Jesse, the world’s biggest monster movie fan, is challenged to a trivia showdown with the soon-to-retire 84-year-old archivist and keeper of all knowledge for a major Japanese movie studio. But can Jesse keep his family and his job intact as he trains for the big event? Directed by Julien Calderbank, SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ stars David Gasman (RAYMAN series, THE BOURNE IDENTITY,) Alixx Schottland, Craig “mUMS” Grant (OZ, BOSTON LEGAL,) adorable newcomer Ayla Guttman and the legendary George Takei (STAR TREK, HEROES) and features music by Blue Oyster Cult.


The Big Island Film Festival runs May 15–18 at Waikoloa Beach Resort on the famed Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The movies are shown at two outdoor venues and one indoor venue. The festival also includes food and beverage events, an awards brunch, filmmaker panels, Hawaiian music and culture.

Nice work, guys, sounds like fun! Are you going to post the film on YouTube?

Sorry, no, this will not be up on YouTube until after the festival run is complete and any distribution deals are executed! Thanks for asking, though.
