Shot on EPIC DRAGON: The Final Girls – Screening in Los Angeles

The NUART theater is hosting a special midnight screening of  The Final Girls this Friday, January 15th at 11:59 PM.

We hope you get a chance to check it out, and welcome your thoughts in our comments section below.

Shot by featured filmmaker Elie Smolkin and directed by Todd Strauss-Shulson, The Final Girls plays with visual and storytelling tropes of campy B-movie horror flicks. Shot on 3GRs Red Epic Dragon using our Angenieux zooms and Cooke s4s.

Like the look? Feel free to request a quote if you’re interested in renting this gear.

A modern-day group of friends enter the world of a 70’s B horror movie – and try to get out alive. The plot largely supports the jokes, but also delivers some legitimate edge-of-your-seat thrills and a solid hero(ine) story. Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) delivers a stellar performance as Max Cartwright, a shy teenager pulled into this surreal adventure that ends up a lot more personal than anyone could have imagined.

Spanning horror, comedy, period, spoof, thriller and drama, The Final Girls allowed Strauss-Shulson and Smolkin to borrow from a number of aesthetic genres. Check out the killer article on their motion-control sequence in Popular Mechanics!

The Final Girls stars Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Nina Dobrev, Thomas Middleditch, Adam DeVine and Angela Trimbur. It was released in the US on October 9th, 2015.

Ferrell actually takes not one, but five fields in this docu/mockumentary. His quest is to play ten different baseball positions on ten Major League Baseball teams during five spring training games. The stunt is a nod to Burt “Campy” Campaneris – a legendary player who once played all positions in a single game exactly 50 years ago. Ferrell faces this “challenge” with his trademarked stone-faced dry humor – always playing the clown playing the guy doing the thing.

But in this instance, the very real rock-hard baseballs often whiz by him at an impressive and potentially dangerous clip. The suggestion of possible danger brings some suspense to the show – between musings on the road and dugout temper tantrums.

All proceeds from “Ferrell Takes The Field” will go to Cancer for College, a charity founded by Ferrel’s USC frat bro Craig Pollard, that awards scholarships to cancer survivors. At the time of shooting, the production had already raised a million dollars for the organization. If you’re feeling particularly generous, you can donate directly here, and be entered to win all sorts of Ferrell Takes the Field swag. There’s even an opportunity to win a branded cowbell for the dedicated donor…

Watch “Ferrell Takes the Field” tonight at 7pm on the west coast, 9pm central, and 10pm out east.
