I agree they need a trailer on their site. Really curious to see it, especially after seeing this pic.

Not only am I curious about how they did it, but also how they got the sharks around there.

Any idea where they shot it, or at least where the movie takes place?

TRAILER TRAILER TRAILER!

They chummed the waters to attract sharks. Seriously. No budget, no props, no insurance. Just brave actors, chainmail under their wetsuits and a signed waiver of liability to protect the filmmakers if they got eaten.

Sundance Features To Show In Windows Media 9 Series

By Elina Shatkin

Jan 22, 2004, 14:31


Microsoft Corp. and the Sundance Institute announced that five full-length feature films will screen digitally at the festival using Microsoft Windows Media 9 Series. For the third year in a row, Windows Media is supporting the Sundance Film Festival, and this year the following films will be screened in Windows Media 9 Series: "BAADASSSSS!," starring David Alan Grier, Ossie Davis and co-writer/director Mario Van Peebles, who is starring as his father, co-writer and acclaimed filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles; "Carandiru" from Academy Award-nominated director Hector Babenco; "Open Water," from writer/director Chris Kentis; "Sky Blue," a groundbreaking high-definition, multilayered animation epic from Moon-Sang Kim and English version from Sunmin Park; and "Speak," from writer/director Jessica Sharzer, starring Kristen Stewart, Steve Zahn and Elizabeth Perkins.

In addition, Microsoft today announced the creation of an independent film Web site on http://www.windowsmedia.com/, dedicated to showcasing indie films and filmmakers. Windows Media 9 Series provides moviegoers with the high-quality theatrical experience they are accustomed to, while offering producers and distributors the cost savings associated with mastering and releasing films digitally.

Using its specialized Cinema System, Digital Cinema Solutions will digitally project the films in Windows Media 9 Series using HP Workstation xw4100 systems. Windows Media 9 Series joins traditional 16 mm, 35 mm and HDCAM as a recognized format used in screening films at the Sundance Film Festival this year.

I have seen that Trailers are usually made unavailable when a film goes into the festival circuit.

I interviewed the filmmakers and they used a VX2000 and a PD150 and cut on FCP, all in 60i for a film out. Looks great!

The movie sounds great and the site is neat but the trailer is pretty lame. Flashing and sharks swimming around... something touched my leg! Lots of treading water....

The trailer didn't do it for me but the facts around the shoot and the reviews will definitely lead me to not only see it but look forward to it.

I wouldn't call the trailer lame. I didn't even know it was on DV when I first saw the trailer. I was so excited I went to go read more about the movie and then found out. I went back and looked closer at the trailer and then could tell it was DV. I thought the trailer looked great. Much better than Alexander and Troy's trailers which I thought looked like Crap. (Though I did think Troy was a pretty good movie. )

That's exactly what I told them when I talked to them! Very nice people, surprised at where their "little" film is now, bought by a major Hollywood company for millions.
