Passenger is proud to share our short film "A Common Occurrence". A Common Occurrence explores the mysterious tension between hope and regret through a young mans longing for a second chance.
Winner of the Jury Award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2011 South Dakota Film Festival, A Common Occurrence is currently screening at various film festivals.
This, the final cut... is a bit shorter, cropped, and re-colored from the version previously screened.
The film was shot in the summer of 2011 over a three month period across the state of South Dakota. It stars Darin Kaihoi, Anna Youngers, and Jeff Barker and features original music by Joseph Barker. Furthermore, the story was loosely based on the classic short story by Ambrose Bierce, "An Incident at Owl Creek Bridge".
The film was shot on the 5D with Zeiss SLR lenses.
