The Bikini Bandits and the Curse of the Pirates Booty PlundersĀ¹s Raindance Film Festival


Curious Film and ad agency Gyro Worldwide are poised to create sheer havoc at the Raindance Film Festival in London this week when they debuts the trailer for “The Bikini Bandits and the Curse of the Pirates Booty”, The full film, which clocks in at 100 minutes long, is slated for a summer 2006 release and the early buzz says it’s worth the wait.
 
Half-animated and half live-action, the soon-to-be international cult classic was shot on location in Philadelphia, Hollywood, and New Zealand as a co-production of F-Hollywood Productions, & Curious Film. Curious producers Matt Noonan and Mei-Ling Wong are currently working with  F- Hollywood and GYRO Worldwide to complete the film for its 2006 release. Of particular interest:

            * A whole slew of rockers have attached themselves to the project, including Maynard James Keenan (Tool), G Love, Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle (The Buzzcocks), Mitch Harris (Napalm Death), Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), Captain Sensible (The Damned), Turbonegro, The Donnas, Ivan Meadows (Runninghouse) and Theo Kogan (Lunachicks).

            * Get ready for some fresh faces: the film features all new girls who have been featured in Penthouse, Maxim, Stuff and FHM. Other girls have been featured in the Hip Hop Honeys video, adult film stars Belladonna and Tera Patrick make an appearance and, last but not least Valentina Vaughn (nominated Penthouse Pet of the Year). Yowza!

            * Curious director Miki Magasiva directed parts of the film in New Zealand. Principal photography was shot in Philadelphia with additional scenes at Maynard’s house in Hollywood, CA.
 
            * The film is a unique technical collaboration, which uses 2-D flash characters and 3-D rendered backgrounds and effects to create a new look that has never been seen in the world of animation.
 
            * The theme song for the movie was written and recorded by Curious house-band, Runninghouse, whose bassist Ivan Meadows (a.k.a. Peter Grasse) is an associate producer at Curious Film and also appears in the movie as himself.
