SPV helps HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE capture Indian demographic
March 9th 2016
SPV Films works together with renown publicist Anna Dean and Piki Films to write and co-produce a comedic
teaser, hosted by Taika Waititi, to capture New Zealand Indian audiences for his new film THE HUNT FOR THE
WILDERPEOPLE. The teaser turns the tables on the director; whose seemingly shameless attempt to appeal to Indian sensibilities is called out by a disgruntled voice-over artist - hired to dub Taika's voice into Hindi - who in turn is too lazy to do his own job right.
The teaser was written and producd by Rajneel Singh and Ajay Vasisht, with the latter playing the unreliable dubbing artist. It played in theaters across New Zealand in front of screenings of the latest Bollywood releases.
