British film industry organisations often state that they're looking for something different/'out of the box', and ​DO SOMETHING, JAKE is certainly that. On 20 September 2018, a packed Odeon in Loughborough, experienced an incredible achievement - the World Premiere of the film shot with a large international cast and multiple locations on a zero budget. Now this ambitious film is set to premiere in London on the 15th November.

T​he film was shot with the in-kind help of local people, film graduates, a charity for disadvantaged youngsters, and local businesses. And it's now gathering acclaim, not only for its unusual storyline, but also the story behind its production. ​DO, SOMETHING, JAKE had £0.00 for production, with the BBFC certification ('15') obtained via a crowdfunding campaign.

...gripping with plenty of humour... absolutely Brilliant!

The audience of 263 people remained glued to their seats during the World Premiere screening on 20th September in Loughborough, an event that was supported and attended by the local MP and many film lovers. Audience members described the experience as "thrilling", "gripping", and "inspiring" and ended the screening with cheers and applause never before experienced by the local Odeon staff.

With a mix of humour, noir and criminal menace, ​DO SOMETHING, JAKE offers a fresh angle on the UK crime thriller - a British film that does not feel ‘British’. This, helped by Hollywood-inspired screenwriting and bold cinematography, plus the appearance of award winning New York actor Ed Bergtold (​Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps​), and post-production crews from Europe and Los Angeles. ​

Raya Films will be hosting a one-time screening of ​DO SOMETHING, JAKE at the Courthouse Hotel, London, on Thursday, 15 November at 19:00.
