PostPanic is a Dutch film company founded in 1997. PostPanic now includes PostPanic (commercial film), PostPanic Pictures (long format film) and PanicProgram (emerging commercial talent). PostPanic also host and curate the bi-annual PanicRoom.

History[edit]

PostPanic formed back in 1997 when Mischa Rozema, Jules Tervoort and Mark Visser graduated from HKU (Hogeschool Kunst Utrecht) together. Their graduation film A Time Of Panic was received to high acclaim and launched their careers in the Netherlands. The name PostPanic is a reference to life after A Time for Panic. In 2007, Mark Visser left PostPanic to work on his own projects.

PostPanic moved to larger premises in Summer 2009 which also include extended post facilities. [1]

In 2012, PostPanic embarked on their most ambitious personal project to date, SUNDAYS - a feature film idea written and to be directed by PostPanic co-founder Mischa Rozema. In order to keep Mischa's vision creatively pure, PostPanic decided to start off their dream with a concept short that would be released as the debut project of their new arm, PostPanic Pictures. They successfully raised over 50K US Dollars via the SUNDAYS Kickstarter campaign. [2] Filming took place in Mexico City in November 2012 with US actor Brian Petsos taking on the male lead. The concept short was released on-line in March 2015 and sparked a bidding war between the US Studios, with Warner Bros finally securing the winning deal [3]. The film is currently in pre-production with Chernin co-producing and Mischa Rozema directing.

In 2015, PostPanic Pictures announced their second film project, Lost Boy, written and to be directed by duo Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns.[4] Following the successful model of Sundays, the team filmed on location in Spain (November 2015) and are now in post-production on the Lost Boy concept short, with projected mid-November 2016 release date.

Other projects currently in development: Little Sh*t, written and directed by Richard Gorodecky. Currently in post-production, Little Sh*t is a traditional format short introducing the characters which populate Gorodecky’s unsettling yet touching ode to London’s hidden nature. Also, Mischa Rozema’s latest sci-fi project, MidAir, is set to release its breathtaking concept short in 2017. It explores the idea of a multi-verse and how this could affect the relationships we carry through life
