PLUG: Devils in Disguise
In an increasingly competitive environment for film production, many indie filmmakers have turned to crowdfunding to help finance their films. Success stories include "Finding Vivian Maier", "Dear White People" and "Wish I Was Here". Recently, another new film (currently in post-production) has been brought to my attention after a favourable response at the Cannes Film Festival. Read below for more information:
Inspired by a variety of staple films from the past, a cinema lover and a renaissance man, Guillaume Campanacci, composed his maiden feature movie around a 'classic love triangle, with a twist', against a Californian urban setting.
The story centers around two flatmates, Leila (Magen Mattox) and Sandy (Montanna Gillis), who conspire to take revenge on Leila's sadistic boyfriend (Guillaume Campanacci). It is a film underlined with violence and told through strong, non-linear structure, with poetic and sensual imagery. In essence, it's a meditation on friendship, love, trust, and murder, presented to us as a perfect blend of reality and dream-like fantasy sequences.
"Devils in Disguise" has been filmed and is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to help with post-production costs. Please follow the link below for details on how to support this film.
