Doonby The Movie - One Life Does Matter
A project by Mike
Doonby is a modern tale of intrigue with a profound message throughout featuring a mysterious, drifter (Sam Doonby), who quickly becomes the talk of a small town.
Mike Mackenzie here. I’m one of the Producers of the film, doonby. This soon to be released movie was directed, written, and produced by my father Peter Mackenzie. It took 15 years to write, so we are very excited to have finally completed the film and will officially release it on November 1st.
Doonby’s story travels through deeply guarded secrets shrouded in time, deception, beauty, and the darkest challenges people face. There is no doubt that doonby’s suspenseful plot will put you at the edge of your seats.
Sam seems to always be in the right place at the right time to prevent disasters from happening in the town. Before long, jealousy and suspicion drive the townspeople to question his sudden arrival and motives. An intense exchange between Laura Reaper (Jenn Gotzon) and Doonby (John Schneider) changes everything. And that's more insider info than we're at liberty to tell you!
WHY IS THIS STORY SO IMPORTANT?
This movie is so important because it puts a spotlight on some very significant social issues and some that are not typically explored in cinema today. It’s uncomfortable to watch at times. The characters expose questions that need to be asked. Most people can either relate to them or have something in common with them through a family member, significant other, friend, or co-worker.
We get asked all the time, “So who is Sam Doonby?” We want you to watch the film, come back, and tell us who you think he is. Everyone who sees the film has their own distinct perspective that sparks insightful conversations about the powerful message transpiring throughout the movie: One Life Does Matter.
SO WHERE ARE WE and WHY ARE "YOU" SO IMPORTANT?
The movie is completely finished!! We are currently positioned to execute an independent release in 20 American cities, but we don’t want to stop there! This is where YOU come in. Our goal is to have doonby playing in as many mainstream theatres as possible. We’re certain we can achieve this with your help. We also want doonby’s powerful message, “One Life Does Matter,” to reach audiences everywhere.
BLUE = Premier Screening RED = Regular Screening
This takes major word spreading and resources and our limited budget doesn't take us as far as we’re committed to going. Your contribution will go directly into the theatrical distribution of this film, including the costs of a trailer, prints of the film, shipping materials, local and national publicity, some travel for outreach, and community screenings in the cities that get added.
A terrific group of seasoned actors brought the story in this film to life.
