Japanese theatrical distributor, Pacific Vision, has bought Wandering Eye’s short film Miscast at the International Short Film Festival of Clermont Ferrand. Pacific Vision have taken worldwide rights for the short. The sale was made by Network Television Ireland, with Derry O’Brien leading the effort.
“Miscast has been a labour of love for Wandering Eye Pictures,” said Mark Strong, MD of Wandering Eye. “We are very excited that we have had our first sale in Asia. From an on-going standpoint, we are currently developing Miscast into a series and hopefully, we will be ready to present it at MIPCOM 2014.”
Miscast is the story of a video game character, Stuart, who is tired of the games world and wants to get in “real” movies. An A-grade thespian with a D-grade look, Stuart is having difficulty landing a compelling role as he looks like a minotaur. It’s like World of Warcraft meets Entourage.
