Hey Guys – Here’s two posters and a press article for a new feature film MY CORNERSTONE, which I acted in and wrote the screenplay for. It’s a romantic comedy that we filmed in Mumbai, India and Sydney, Australia. Thanks, James

Magic New Poster for Aussie-Indian Film MY CORNERSTONE 

I’ve never paid much attention to Bollywood-style movies aimed at the Indian market until this past year, when I started reading J Hurtado’s reviews here at Twitch (shout-out to Eega). So it’s with a little excitement that I saw the poster for Aussie Indian film My Cornerstone, as I knew I could share it here with an already attuned audience.

Written by enterprising actor James Morcan (the dashing gent in the poster) and directed by Stanley Joseph, My Cornerstone appears to be three movies in one. The poster suggests everything from magic (sorry, illusions) to clones, while the official synopsis suggests a drama:
A young Indian nurse moves to Sydney where she’s placed in the household of a wealthy Indian-Australian family and given the task of caring for an elderly lady.
Meanwhile, the film’s only entry on Wikipedia lists it as a romance. Only time (and possibly, magic) will reveal what truly happens. There’s not much more information online, but we’ll endeavor to bring you updates when we discover more.

I just finished filming OZ-Bollywood feature films MY CORNERSTONE and LOVE YOU KRISHNA, which I wrote the screenplays for and acted lead roles in. We filmed both features simultaneously. It was a massive job and sleep has been at a premium of late! We just finished the Indian leg of the shoot in Mumbai after filming for two months before that here in Sydney. -James

 The following media release is dated 17 October 2012 PST:

 

New Zealand-born actor James Morcan has been cast to play leading roles in upcoming Australian-Indian films ‘My Cornerstone’ and ‘Love You Krishna’.

James (34) is also the screenwriter on both productions which will be filmed in Sydney, Australia and several locations on the Indian subcontinent.

Indian-Australian filmmaker Stanley Joseph, of World Pictures Australia, is producing and directing ‘Love You Krishna’ and ‘My Cornerstone’. The stories for the films, which are quirky romantic comedies exploring multiculturalism and spiritual faith, reflect some of Joseph’s own experiences as an Indian migrant in Australia.

James, who resides in Sydney, is also a film producer and novelist. Recent productions he has performed in include the Australian independent feature film ‘The Pawn’ and ‘Ben Hur: The Stadium Spectacular’ with Russell Crowe. Morcan was also Executive Producer on last year’s New Zealand feature film ‘Desired’ which premiered at Cannes Marche du Film in France.

As an author, James co-writes novels with his Bay of Plenty-based father Lance Morcan. Their recently published novels include ‘The Ninth Orphan’, an international thriller, ‘The Orphan Factory’, a coming-of-age spy thriller, and ‘Fiji: A Novel’, an historical adventure.

‘My Cornerstone’ and ‘Love You Krishna’ will be shot simultaneously. Filming is scheduled to begin next month.
