Broken Night

Posted February 6, 2013 2 Comments

This is dark, creepy and pretty awesome. It’s a short film, shot entirely on the Nikon D800, and it premiered at Sundance. Oh, I should warn you that you may find it disturbing.

Broke Night was commission by Nikon via McCann New York and it’s directed by Guillermo Arriaga, the award-winning writer of Babel, 21 Grams and Amores Perros. The cinematographer is two-time Academy award-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List), who was also the DP on The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Lincoln. What they have created is a story as frightening as it is drop dead beautiful. It’s edited by Paul Martinez at Arcade Edit.

    Creepy kids to sell a camera is not the best idea, as I doubt anyone will do a repeat watch.
