Yes, it’s official. We completed principal photography last week on my first feature film as Producer. The film was directed and written by DENNIS HAUCK, and stars JOHN HAWKES (Winter’s Bone, The Sessions, Deadwood), along with an amazing ensemble cast including ROBERT FORSTER (Pulp Fiction), and NATALIE ZEA (The Following, Justified).
We started production over two years ago on this ambitious film that includes four 20 minute oners, all filmed on 35mm. We used two-perf technology which allowed us to get twenty minutes out of a 1000 ft mag. If you are unfamiliar with the term “oner,” it’s a long, continuous shot without ever cutting the camera. So, if you’re a fan of “True Detective” and saw their amazing “oner,” well, that was only a seven minute shot. Blown away by the epic scene in Children of Men? Four minutes. So needless to say, I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished with this film.
We’ll looking to complete post production in time to submit to 2015 festivals.
