“The 3D effects are stellar… The film fully embraces the format, and cleverly uses it to put you inside this world as it falls apart — it uses it to make the horror, both spectral and visceral, feel more real.”
“whip crack smart”
“Alena von Stroheim’s Amy is sympathetic, complex, and feels as real as any award bait mumblecore film”
“DeGennaro and his cast and crew have brought to life the ideal love child of multiple gimmicks and the end result is much greater than the sum of its parts.”
“Smartly written, believably acted, and deftly crafted, FOUND FOOTAGE 3D is funny, smart, and scary as hell.”
Make it big. Make it loud. Watch it twice. (But not 3 times… don’t want too much spoiled!) Share with friends and family. And buy your tickets to our world premiere (Chicago, August 20th) or international premiere (London, August 29th).
And if you want to see it in all its 3D glory (via your 3D TV, red-blue glasses, VR goggles, or Google Cardboard), log in to our backstage area.
And in one of the most epic one-two punches of all time, the film will have its international/European premiere the following weekend at the very prestigious FrightFest London.
We could not be happier about both of these festivals and we are thrilled and honored to have been chosen. Writer/Director Steven DeGennaro, Producer/Actor Scott Weinberg, Producer Charles Mulford, and several of the actors will be in attendance at both festivals. More details to come soon.
Mark your calendars! We will be posting more as the fest dates approach, and we will have a very special surprise in the final weeks leading up to the festival. Keep checking back for info and updates. Or better yet, sign up for our mailing list so you don’t miss a thing!
And if you live in Chicago or London and would be interested in being a part of our street team in exchange for a seat at the screening, contact us. We could use your help and we would love to see you there!
I’ve known how amazingly brilliant Drew is for years, of course, which is why he has shot every movie that I’ve directed. He is one of the absolute most talented people I’ve ever worked with. I’m not exaggerating when I say that if I had a choice between Lubeski, Deakins, Kaminski, or Drew, I’d pick Drew. I have no doubt that he will be on the Oscar stage some time in the next decade, and I only hope that I can continue to get to work with him for years to come.
Before too much time went by, I wanted to share my top ten movies of 2015 with you. I saw 174 feature films this year. Of those, 128 were movies I had never seen before. I saw 79 movies in a theater (80 if I count Star Wars twice). This is down slightly from 2014, when I saw just shy of 100 movies in a theater, but that’s to be expected, what with an infant to take care of and a movie of my own to finish. (Note: this tally does *not* include the roughly 800 billion times I watched Found Footage 3D.)
For the second year running, I saw my favorite film of the year at Fantastic Fest. Last year I opted to not include festival movies that had not been released to the general public by the end of the year. This year, I’m taking a cue from Simon Barrett and including any movie I saw in calendar 2015. This not only saves me having to compare movies I saw nearly two full years ago with stuff I just saw last week, but it also gives me an opportunity to put some great movies on your radars so that when they do finally come out, you can make sure to see them.
The movie is finished. I was honestly starting to wonder if it ever would be. I’m sure many of you have been wondering the same thing, and I don’t blame you. If I had known just how long this was going to take, and how much it was going to bleed out of me for so long, I might have thought twice about undertaking the endeavor at all.
I started the journey of making this film three and a half years ago. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s longer than the U.S. fought in World War II (which at the moment feels like a particularly apt analogy).
It’s been a while, but Steve is back to let you in on a part of the filmmaking process that the general public rarely gets a glimpse of: creating horror sound effects. Watch Steve beat the shit out of some fruits and vegetables and make a big mess. Educational AND cathartic.
You’ll want to listen to this one through headphones!
