The Art of Trimm
There are those films that you just can’t wait to see, where the trailer alone leaves you wide-eyed and ready. Forbidden Trim is one such film and everyone from Beach Grit to Surfer Mag is frothing on it too. Here’s the shortline: using a group of surfers for cover, Kilroy, a crack commando is sent deep into the jungle on a clandestine mission to uncover the mysteries of the Caldera Network. Here’s the trailer:
So, now you’re frothing too!
“It’s a Grindhouse, Surfing, Sci-Fi, Horror, Comedy, War film,” says filmmaker George Trimm of the project that has taken the best part of four years and every last dollar to bring to the big screen. This self-financed feature is now in post-production and George is running a Kickstarter campaign to help finish the project and share it with the global surfing community and the rewards – from patches and signed posters to trunks and helmets are epic.
“I wanted to make something that resembles a short novel, a H.P. Lovecraft or a Louis L’Amore, but set in the deep jungle,” says George . “I like the idea of going on an adventure with the main character, into the darkness to find out what’s going on where no one’s allowed to go. With Forbidden Trim I am mixing a lot of different film genres. I’ve been editing it ever since I put out Bootleg, which is a bit over two years. We started filming four years ago. As of now, we have a 75 minute rough cut that has many different layers. It’s definitely a movie you can watch four times and still find something new on the fifth visit. My small team and I did everything on this movie. All the filming, score, miniature models, props, art direction, editing, special effects, etc. It’s my most involved picture for sure.”
