BAGHEAD Premieres today in NY and LA


Last Friday I got the chance to meet the Duplass Brothers, after their success with the The Puffy Chair, my natural question was, Are you living out of this? Their answer; Actually yes dude!

Since 2005 they had been working in different projects in development with different studios and they even moved to LA, but after two years writing, pitching, attending to meetings, and actually making money, one thing was worrying them: How much time is going to pass until we do another film? So they repeat his previous formula and they created Baghead, premiered in Sundance in January of 2008 and picked up for North American distribution by Sonny Pictures Classics.

The film tells the story of four struggling actors that decide to retreat to a cabin in Big Bear, California in order to write a screenplay that will make them all stars. Problem is: What happens when their story idea -a horror flick about a group of friends tormented by a villain with a bag over his head - starts to come true?

The whole team was 10 people, including crew and actors, as guerrilla as you can get.

The premiere in NY and LA is this friday 24th, so I don’t have to explain how important is to attend this shows the first weekend, you already saw The Dark Knight last week, so this one give it a try to a Guerrilla Film.

If you want to know more about this filmmakers IFC published a really good interview in their site.
