AUCKLAND: 15 minutes of
Fame Competition, August WELLINGTON:
Paramount Young Film Maker's Showcase, Nov 5
This isn't your everyday, uninvited guest...
First of all many, many thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Jackson for the use of their house as the primary location (after losing my first location to unforeseen circumstances, the use of their house came like a blessing). And of course thanks to all the cast who put up with my directing and yelling etc (I wasn't that bad though, right?).
The road to finishing "The Gate Crasher" has been a bumpy one (but isn't that always the case?). We lost our location, scenes had to be re-filmed, we didn't always have the right equipment, main characters couldn't make it on certain days, computers crashing and of course, the media studies classes always stealing our cameras (so what if they belong to the school and we're not actually using the for anything school related...where was I going with this point?).
And so it was, that I spent many hours in the editing suite, furiously editing away at my film. But by around the end of August, it was finished! And I thought "Wow, this is cool, I just made a movie. And it's not a big piece of crap!" And thus was born, THE GATE CRASHER!

I like this movie, but I would say
that, wouldn't I? I made it after all, with the help of a talented cast
and crew of course. Compared to Mr. Dickens, this movie looks like Ben Hur.
Definitely my best movie to date (considering I've only made two!)
Play it again! Play it again!
This film is cracker! Bonza mate!
Mishra shows great promise and potential as a
filmmaker..."The Gate Crasher" transcends all expectations,
leaving other summer blockbusters wondering what hit them.
Mishra is a very precocious young filmmaker and a pleasure
to work with. The set is never boring once Mishra steps onto it.
It wasn't crap. - Alan Longhurst
A fine piece of filmmaking the director shows a great
confidence in his work. Especially liked Russel Crowe in the lead part
