Death Cast (2019)
Six young and hopeful actors land roles in an experimental horror film shooting on a remote location. Their performances will be captured without any crew present in a single, uninterrupted take by cameras and drones positioned around the set. As the day progresses, the line between the film they are shooting and actual terror is blurred as they find themselves in a real life-or-death situation.
After the film, stick around for a post-show filmmaker Q&A with:
