Making a Feature Documentary...
A Russian Fairytale is a documentary film about homeless teenagers which took four years to make.
After collaborating with the Russian based charity Love's Bridge on their promotional material, I researched in detail about the background behind the issues.
I used this research and video material I had captured to build a platform for a feature film.
The film itself entirely independent with the help of private donors. Working with cinematographer Nicolas Doldinger, we filmed 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 shown in Russia, Italy, India, USA, China, Greece and numerous times in the UK."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.
"Utterly compelling"- DocHouse.org
"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
