Live Ashes - Online Premiere Event
Buy and Download >
LIVE ASHES is an experimental adaptation of Shakepeare's MEASURE FOR MEASURE shot over the course of 25 years with mostly consumer-grade electronics. The movie uses two casts to tell the story- with some actors in two roles and other parts played by two people- with each actor shot performing solo in front of a greenscreen and edited together into scenes. The plot then intercuts apocryphal scenes shot by the director over the corse of 25years and multiple indie features. The result is sort of moving collage or shell game that comments on the current state of political hypocricy and social unrest. A cast of over 200 mostly amateur actors are joined by "guest stars" shot by remote or appearing via stock footage. Music by Julia Kent (Rasputina,Antony & the Jonsons). Songs by Featherbeard. Additional songs by Monk Turner and Diamanda Galas.
Instead of a physical screening, LIVE ASHES will be making its premiere online. People will be able to watch a live premiere and live chat with members of the cast.
The movie will post for free and have a physical release later this year.
