Yarnmaker premiered its first film Unfinished Business in front of an invitation-only audience on Saturday 11 February 2006.
More than 100 guests attended the screening at the Globe theatre, formerly the Valley Twin cinema on Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley.
"It's good to see a film finally play to an audience. This is what we make them for. We are here to entertain," said writer/director Jason Kempnich. "You always get first time nerves, doubly so with this being Yarnmaker's first outing - you never know how a film may be interpreted by a large audience. Fortunately, the year of hard work paid off and it was well received. People loved the story, the real orchestral music, the quality of the image and effects - it all worked. The cast and crew should be proud of what we have achieved together."
Unfinished Business will now compete in national and international festivals. Starring Kazuya Wright, Peita McCulloch, Darren Taylor and Barbara Baugh, it is initially set in 2006 and tells the story of Stewart (Wright). Stewart begins to recall disturbing memories, so vivid and violent in nature, they drive him to try to understand what is occurring ... or rather what has occurred, for the sake of his own sanity. The short film dramatically explores the consequences of an ill deed, seemingly long forgotten.
Both Kempnich and Yarnmaker will now turn their efforts to an as-yet unannounced project, due for completion early to mid 2007.
