A big congratulations to Nick (aka Nikos), Raymond Deane, Phill Hammond and everyone else involved in the making of the film Travail. The film premiere was a success and we couldn’t be happier for everyone, especially Nick. It’s not every day one of our very own gets to walk the red carpet of their own film premiere! We wish the filmmakers, cast and crew continued success on this film and the others in the series.
Here are a few photos and some of the feedback the film received which Nick was kind enough to share with us:
Travail was a thought provoking and quite disturbing movie…..riveting performances by Nick and Jamie….all in all “outstanding” see you in Cannes.
After viewing the film Travail “Dawn of a New Day” I find that all of the participants gave a gripping performance.
I was truly impressed with the intricate method used by the director developing an appeal to various types of moviegoing experience. There were elements such as gore/violence to make us squeemish & cringe in our seats, romance/lust, deception, action/suspense, as well as some comic …relief, and even a bit of science fiction.
The lead character played by Mr. Nick Dubanos was well executed, I had to refrain from booing at his character from my seat, I was completely caught up in the moment watching the film. – I hands down give this film a Ebert & Roeper’s 2 Thumbs Up.
Kudos to Raymond Deane & Phillip Hammond I look forward to seeing future projects on the Big Screen. I wish continued success to all who were involved -Cheers!
The move was AMAZING… Totally unexpected. I give it 2 thumps up and can’t wait to see it at Sundance. The movie captures the audience and you feel a connection between yourself and the characters. Nick Dubanos is phenomenal, you don’t know if you want to love him or hate him.
You will fall in love with Sam Price and Tiffany Stoker. The story line was great and it touched a lot of the issues that still haunt our society today.
If you can overlook the violence and racism, you will see a lot of hidden messages. Phill ‘bigphill’ Hammond, Raymond Dean and Sam Price did fantastic job and I’m ready for part 2.
While riveting and disturbing, Travail forces you to look at the way people view the world and judge races, not just the way it’s depicted in the film. Yet with such drama and intensity ongoing…you find yourself laughing out loud (with the rest of the theatre) at the wit of these people in these situations. Talk about necessary comedic relief so perfectly placed throughout the events. This story is about real people, you get real invested, and it’s really scary… because it’s so true…and just the idea that it could be real…is the whole point of this film.
