When an American home improvement TV show visits a remote Eastern European village, the young crew thinks the lack of mocha lattés and free wifi will be the worst of their problems. But after their filming interrupts the superstitious villagers’ private religious ritual, the situation takes a turn for the homicidal… and when the blood starts flowing, that’s when things get really weird.
I wrote and directed this genre-bending workplace-comedy-gone-terribly-terribly-wrong with Micah Wright. Released in 2016, it's a thoughtful meditation on Ugly-Americanism and Selfie Culture disguised as a horror/comedy... with an already legendary "batshit crazy finale".
And, yeah, we totally set a dude on fire in real life.
In order to streamline production and keep costs under control I meticulously storyboarded the effects-heavy 12-minute finale of the film. In these video extras you'll see how we did it.
