The film is a sci-fi action piece based on the work of James O’Barr creator of the Crow, and made with his permission. The comic first appeared in Dark Horse Presents, and was expanded by Judd Tilyard into a short film in 2009 after several years of development. The film was shot on the RED using Lomo Anamorphic Lens over a weekend. Sam ransom the ten year old boy who plays Jonny Z, the films hero, notably performed all his own stunts including the fire breathing and wire-work, some of which is showcased in the Teaser. The music used in the teaser, was also very generously recorded for the film by Nick Oliveri and Dave Grohl my sincerest thanks guys.
Red is one of the most expensive HD video cameras available. Only $17,000 for just the body. No lense (interchangeable) or other needed accessories. Basically the best digital camera available for indie filmmakers.
This trailer shows a certain amount of potential, but I need to see more. Their certainly hasn’t been too many cyberpunk films of late.
