    The Immortalists - Movie Preview

    in Entertainment

    Release date: November 28, 2014 (USA)

    Cast: Aubrey de Grey, William H. Andrews http://theimmortalists.com/

    As we head into the fall festival season, we have some great news about The Immortalists. A lot has happened since our World Premiere at SXSW, and this fall will be a busy time for team Immortalists as we crisscross the globe, screening the film to new audiences and provoking debate about longevity and futurism.

    We will begin October with the California Premiere at the prestigious Mill Valley Film Festival, followed by a showing in Moscow’s 360 Contemporary Film Festival, the London BFI International Film Festival, the Hollywood Film Festival, and then the Philadelphia Film Festival– all in October!
    But that’s not the end of it: We are thrilled to announce that we will begin our theatrical release of the film on November 28th in New York City and then December 11th in Los Angeles. This is fantastic news because a theatrical release is *extremely* rare for documentaries. The directors will be in attendance for the New York and Los Angeles theatrical premieres to participate in Q&As and lead fascinating discussions on radical longevity and indie filmmaking.

    We got an outstanding review in On Milwaukee, when the film played at the Milwaukee Film Festival. Maxim wrote a great review (while omitting ½ of the directorial team!). Also, friend of The Immortalists Patrick Brice (director of CREEP) gave us a shout out in Sac Town Magazine.

    Onward and upward! http://www.facebook.com/theimmortalists

    Film Re-Adaptation of Nosferatu now a Kickstarter Project

    in Pop Culture

    What do vampires, Doug Jones, black-and-white cinema, and modern green screen technology all have in common? The answer is Nosferatu - a new visual remix of the classic German expressionist 1922 black-and-white silent horror film.  

    The idea is to bring this classic horror film back to life and with a unique feel to show to a modern audience while still honoring the masters of old. Writer and director David Lee Fisher has garnered a team of creative individuals who are all collaborating to recreate the 1922 film in a rather unique way.

    Nosferatu is on KickStarter at thevampirelives.com with a goal to raise $60,000 by December 3rd.     

    Doug Jones, famed actor best known for his work as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, El Fauno and the Pale Man in Pan's Labyrinth, Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus, and the Silver Surfer in Rise Of The Silver Surfer, has been cast to portray the menacing Count Orlok. His makeup has been created by Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion Studios.

    in Film

    As a housewife, Carole Dean, took a $20 bill and turned it into a $50 million a year industry when she coined the phrase “short ends” and began buying and selling film left over from production. She was instrumental in the birth of the Hollywood independent film community which took advantage of her discounted raw stock.  In 1992, Carole created the Roy W. Dean Grant which has provided filmmakers with millions of dollars in goods and services and played a crucial role in establishing the careers of our most important documentary filmmakers. 

    Carole is the author of The Art of Film Funding: Alternative Financing Concepts, now in its second edition, and The Art of Manifesting: Creating Your Future. She is the executive producer for Women Behind the Camera, BAM 6.6, American Chain Gang and Step Away From the Stone.
