Shooting Dates: Sep 27-29
A quiet, remote village at the foot of a great mountain has struck a tenuous agreement with a creature that lives at the top of the mountain. A tribute must be given each year in order for the creature to leave the villagers alone but one villager holds a dark secret that causes the balance to shift.
WHY THIS PROJECT MATTERS
Bryant and Ben Hodson wrote/directed/produced the short film Marooned (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2512486/) which went on to win the 2012 Houston International Film Festival. You can watch the full film here: (http://crankleft.com/films/marooned) Shadow of the Mountain will utilize all practical effects and will have a similar suspense feel to movies like The Sixth Sense and early Twilight Zone episodes. This film will be a strong contender at film festivals next year.
