Sundance 2014: “Fishing Without Nets”

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival

 “Fishing Without Nets”: 2014 Sundance Film Festival selection in the U.S. Dramatic Competition

Fishing Without Nets

Shot in East Africa using Somali nonactors, Fishing Without Nets tells the mesmerizing and sobering story of the bandits from the Somali point of view. First-time feature filmmaker Cutter Hodierne, whose short film of the same name won the Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, combines the epic cinematic vision of a glorious action thriller with the intimate, textured qualities of an art film, humanizing the pirates by bringing us inside their moral dilemmas and gut-wrenching struggles.

After taking nearly 4 months to shoot the 2012 award winning short “Fishing Without Nets” director Cutter Hodierne went right back to work on the feature film adaptation of the same name. His feature film debut was beautifully captured by cinematographer and Feature Filmmaker Alex Disenhof last fall in eastern Africa on RED Epic. “Fishing Without Nets” is scheduled to show at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Shot on EPIC DRAGON: Gone Girl, Transformers 4 + Avatar Sequels

2014 is lining up to be the year of the Dragon.  The first coming our way will be Transformers 4 directed by Michael Bay followed by David Fincher’s Gone Girl adaptation; both to be released in 2014.

James Cameron’s x3 Avatar sequels are rumored to be shot on Dragon, with the production process beginning in late 2014. All three sequels will be shot in New Zealand as part of a substantial tax incentive deal.
