1. Filmsupply Presents — The Cage.

    More than a story of redemption, The Cage is a story of survival. When Philly’s streets look to bring one young man down and entangle him with violence, anger, and death, it’s purely up to him to find a way to break free. While the only escape may seem to come from the basketball court, make no mistake — this is no game.

  2. A short film that we created as a book trailer for Stephanie Henry's recently released If Only I Could Sleep.

    In looking at how to make a trailer that was based on Steph's life, it felt way too simple and safe to interview those involved in the book and then add some broll to it.

    In reading the book ourselves we found this essay, My Utopia, which she presented in English class, late in 1981. It was a haunting portrait of what her life and mind were like at that time. And it offered an amazing opportunity to connect you to Stephanie's story while doing what any strong book trailer should - make you want to know more.

    This short film is the true story of that day in Steph's English class.

    Shot on the Red Epic along side some Red Scarlet. The opening shot, a 17 second continuous take that slowly reveals itself to you, took 33 takes paired with a Movi M10, Scarlet, 24mm Cinema Prime, wireless follow focus, and more.

    Head on over to our blog for our first post on the cinematography behind this short.

  4. ‘The Sandman’ is a short film featuring the Trona, California High School Football team as they train and go through Hell Week in preparation for the upcoming Fall 2015 season.

    "It makes Friday Night Lights look like a cakewalk." Digg.com

    Directed by Diego Contreras.

    Created for the filmsaboutnumbers.com series | No. 7

    Footage available for licensing at filmsupply.com/filmmakers/diego-contreras/47

    Inspired by the biblical story of Jericho, where the Israelites marched and shouted around the fortified wall of an impenetrable city for 7 days, and 7 times on the 7th day. As the army shouted, the walls collapsed, and they took over the city. The film presents the Trona team doing their powerful chants 7 times as they prepare to go to battle against teams much larger than their own.

    I met these kids by happenstance while scouting for a different project down in Trona. It's been an honor getting to know and hang out with them and the beautiful people of Trona. I've been heavily inspired by the coach and his team's passion, faith, and brotherhood. I hope this film can inspire others as much as they inspired me.
