Crimson Winter Debuts in Helena

Basic-HeartMontana Film “Crimson Winter” premieres this weekend at the Myrna Loy Center. The film will run Red Lodge, Bozeman, and Missoula. See the screening schedule.

A collaboration between Montana filmmakers, Isaac Marble and Bryan Ferriter, “Crimson Winter” is a dramatic thriller shot in Montana and starring Montana talent.

Beginning in 2011 the film was entirely funded, cast, and shot through Ferriter and Marble’s efforts. Raising over $350,000 and hiring both in-state and Los Angeles-based actors, the crew shot through grueling temperatures, having the cast perform their own stunts, and horseback riding (which proved to be eventful). In the end they created, in the words of Deny Staggs, the Montana Film Commissioner, a “phenomenal” film.

With high-production values and compelling vistas, “Crimson Winter” shows just how far dedication and vision can go when Montana is on screen.

CW1Bryan will also be at Carroll College on January 23, 2014 to discuss the film and the process of embarking on such an ambitious project. For more information, contact the Carroll Student Activities Office at 406.447.4380.

CW3Synopsis:
Humans massacred their race, wrote them out of history and for centuries now, vampires have been forced to live in the shadows. Elric, a prince of these highly evolved creatures of the night, falls in love with a human – an intolerable offense to the royal family and Elric is imprisoned for a century until a group of loyalists battle to free him from his dark cell. Together they escape to the remote mountainous terrain of Montana territory in North America where they begin building an army to exact revenge upon his family.

A century later, in the frozen heart of winter, a group of researchers sets out to investigate a mysterious decline in the local wildlife population. Their journey takes them deep into the isolated mountain wilderness where they soon discover a terrifying truth and find themselves caught between two foes in a centuries-old battle between vampires and hunters. As they struggle to survive, they come face to face with the vampire prince, Elric, who is haunted by his own dark past. An ancient prophecy and his own anguished heart weigh heavily upon him as the vampire lord decides the fate of the hikers.
