There are certain places where words just don't justify the visuals
INTERVIEW WITH VERNA AMY MC CLUNE
Can you tell us how you got to be in a movie about Bitcoin?
I initially applied for a Presenting role and the company creating this movie approached me about the opportunity to be in a movie about Bitcoin. They were excited about my past career in mining and thought my degree coupled with my acting experience would be perfect for the lead role.
So you were a Bitcoin miner?
No, I actually have a Bachelor of Technology in Mining Engineering and worked as a Mining Engineer on mines across Namibia, South Africa and Australia before I decided to pursue my career in acting.
Wow, so from Mining to Acting, what brought on the change?
Passion. I love acting. I don't think anything makes me happier than being in front of that camera delivering a believable character to the viewers and taking them on a journey with me. Namibia, where I was born, is a small country, well it’s actually a massive country but with a small population. The creative industry isn't very big, in fact it's incredibly small. A career with a path to a stable and very bright future was almost inevitable. I worked really hard at school and scholarships were part of my path at the time. When I moved to Australia I had freedom to play with my acting career, opportunities that were almost non-existent in Namibia.
How does being a Mining Engineer relate to your character in the film?
It’s really about the perception that only men are suitable for certain jobs and that’s what this movie is all about. Everybody always assumes that the Bitcoin inventor is a man, not only because Satoshi is a Japanese male name but also because people don’t really think about a woman when they speak about Bitcoin mining. The same way people are surprised to hear I'm a Mining Engineer when they meet me.
Does that mean Satoshi is actually a woman?
I can’t tell you that. You’ll have to watch the movie.
Can you then tell us what type of movie Secret Billions is?
The film is an action and suspense movie in the sense that it brings you around the world but often at times does not reveal why a particular event is happening in one place or the other, so you have to really use your imagination when you see the film and it continues to be exciting until the very end.
Are you a fan of action films?
Absolutely yes. I remember watching X-men cartoons growing up and I'm the biggest Wolverine fan today! Not that you'll see any Mutants in this film but I love action, suspense, anything that drives adrenalin and takes you on a wild adventurous journey.
Why did you decide to do this movie?
The story appealed to me. Not only because of the adventure I would personally embark on, but because of the excitement and curiosity surrounding Cryptocurrency. I think in a sense I would get such an in-depth insight into understanding and perhaps appreciating the currency. And of course all the action, adventure and travel is definitely the cherry on the cake haha. I'm also hoping people get an appreciation for a female in this role, as I believe there is still such a massive gap of strong female lead characters in action films and in films as a whole, although this is most certainly on the increase.
Where will this movie be released?
The movie will first be released in select theatres around the world for ‘M’ coin holders and then be available online for everyone, thanks to the sponsorship arranged by Most Exclusive.
Where will the movie be filmed?
We shoot in Australia and Europe and we have specifically selected very exotic locations you would normally not be able to visit.
Who else will star in the movie?
MostExclusive allows the 10 largest M coin holders to nominate anyone who will then get a suitable role. In addition, we have a professional cast that includes actors from around the globe, mostly from the UK and Australia.
Is the movie a work of fiction or based on real facts?
Our production team made a great effort to involve Bitcoin insiders in the production of the movie so the story is partially based on research and investigative work.
Is there a sequel to this movie planned?
Yes, the story will continue and we are already casting for the sequel.
Do you have any experience with Bitcoin and cryptocurrency yourself?
My contract includes an M coin allocation so I am therefore also a cryptocurrency owner.
Last question: Will the real identity of Satoshi ever be revealed?
You’ll find out when you see the movie.
