Indie ‘Predator Island’ to make it to home video, pay per view in fall
The 80-minute “Predator Island” was shot with a Panasonic AG-DVX100A miniDV 3-CCD 24p camcorder.
“Predator Island,” an independent action/horror feature from Connecticut-based independent studio Synthetic Cinema and Tripeg Studios. The film is being brought to market this fall by the Universal Music Video Division in a distribution deal encompassing home video/DVD, pay-per-view and broadcast.
The 80-minute drama was shot with a Panasonic AG-DVX100A miniDV 3-CCD 24p camcorder.
Director of Photography Andrew Gernhard co-founded Synthetic Cinema last year with a mandate to produce quality film products that are highly marketable. The company’s first purchase was the AG-DVX100A, and Synthetic recently purchased a second camera. Both DVX100As are now being used to shoot Synthetic’s latest feature, “Blood Descendants.”
“Predator Island” was both edited and finished in-house on a Media 100 system.
