Directing a feature documentary...
A Russian Fairytale is a feature documentary film about homeless teenagers which took four years to produce.
After working with the Russian based charity Love's Bridge on their promotional videos, I researched in detail about the background behind the issues - the perestroika and NGO reports on Besprizorniki (children who are not cared for).
I used this research to build up a platform for the film.
The film was self funded with the help of sponsors and private donors. With the basics covered, I flew out to Perm with cinematographer Nicolas Doldinger and worked solidly over 2 winter/summer months.
The film was shot on the Sony EX3 using 35mm ARRI prime lenses, edited with FCP, graded by ARRI in Munich and has since premiered in Moscow and shown twice at Riverside Studios in London. It's also be screened in the US, Greece and India."There is a wonderful and important film 'A Russian Fairytale'. The English documentary film-maker spent a considerable time filming young homeless people and drug addicts in the city of Perm. He tracked a whole group of these people"- Veteran Russian filmmaker and actor Andrei Smirnov.

"It's a beautiful though utterly sad portrait and filmmaker Jake Mobbs, staying true to the intention of a documentary, has done a fantastic job creating an objective, observational portrayal that highlights a serious issue".- Docgeeks.com
