Field Pictures is a Brooklyn Based Production Company run by Audrey Ewell and Aaron Aites. Films Include Until The Light Takes Us, a 2009 award winning feature documentary about Norwegian Black Metal, a portrait of Scandinavian musicians who killed themselves, each other, and outsiders, burned churches for nationalism, Odin or Satan, (depending on who you ask) and recorded seminal albums in a blistering new genre of metal - all while popularizing corpsepaint, bullet belts and spikes. Their look, sound and violence were later turned into fodder for modern artists and splashed on gallery walls in a seemingly inescapable cycle of reinterpretation and commodification. A story of mayhem, music, art, identity, friendship, and loss, Until The Light Takes Us was distributed theatrically around the world, and was most recently shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. blackmetalmovie.com. Until The Light Takes Us was made in Association with Verisimilitude and The Group Entertainment.
Field Pictures more recently produced 99% - The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film, a large-scale experiment in collaborative filmmaking, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film was acquired for North American Distribution by Participant Media. Production partners included Verisimilitude and Gigantic Pictures, and the film was supported with grants by the Sundance Institute and the Fledgling Fund, with fiscal sponsorship provided by IFP. 99percentfilm.com
