MONSTER LURKS AT EMPTYHOUSE
EmptyHouse Films is pleased to present the upcoming production of their short film, 'Beneath the Frost Line.' The film was written by EmptyHouse founders Andy Davis and Scott Morabito, with Davis taking the directing lead, and Morabito helming the photography. 'This film continues the trend set by both 'The Pumpkin Man' and 'The Dark', exploring the darker, more primitive regions of life.' Davis said.
The film stars Robert Kane as James Cobb, a backwoods old man who is asked by Laura Patten, a blind woman (played by Leah Tennis) to take her to the person or thing responsible for murdering her brother. They head out together for the thick wilderness to try and uncover the past, and stumble across more than they bargain for. Robert Kane starred as the pumpkin farmer in EmptyHouse Film's 2001 short film production 'The Pumpkin Man.' Leah Tennis recently came off of another EmptyHouse Film set in August, portraying 'Mama' in 'The Dark,' a film currently being edited by Peter Gvozdas. The 'effects heavy' role of Thomas will be played by William DeCoff, aka wrestling legend Sean O'Rielly
Special Effects are being created by Jeremy Oneail, whose work can be seen at http://www.oneailfx.com. 'Jeremy really seems to have a great handle on things and brings a very creative, different approach to makeup effects. We're very impressed with his previous work.' Davis said.
EmptyHouse Film plans to use some new creative visual tools on the project. Shooting on DV, they will incorporate PS Technic system and Steadicam for top-notch visual intrigue. 'It's going to be difficult to balance beauty with suspense to get the accurate mood. We want to take viewers directly to the Maine woods on a cold December day.' Morabito said.
Production begins November 30th in Porter, Maine.
This is EmptyHouse Film's second year, and this marks the second film of 2002. For more information on this and other EmptyHouse Films, visit their website at http://www.emptyhousefilm.com
