As part of the Second Wave Announcement last week, it was announced that horror favs Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett will bare it all at the Fantasia Film Festival in Joe Swanberg’s 24 Exposures! To go along wtih the first stills and artistic one-sheet, we now have another two stills, one featuring both Adam and Simon, the other V/H/S star Helen Rogers
Fantasia will unveil the world premiere screening of mumblecore icon Joe Swanberg’s recently completed 24 Exposures as part of its Camera Lucida section. The feature stars filmmaker Adam Wingard (who, at 19, premiered his first film, Home Sick, at Fantasia) and his constant collaborator Simon Barrett, the director/screenwriter duo behind V/H/S, V/H/S/2, You’re Next and A Horrible Way To Die. They are currently filming The Guest.
Wingard, a gifted cinematographer who also lensed Swanberg’s Silver Bullets, plays a fetish photographer whose models begin to turn up dead, with Barrett portraying a melancholic cop tasked with investigating him. Swanberg, director of Drinking Buddies and Alexander the Last, previously collaborated with Wingard and Barrett on Autoerotic and the anthology horror hit V/H/S. As an actor, Swanberg also collaborated with the filmmakers several times, playing lead roles in A Horrible Way To Die, V/H/S and You’re Next.
On a related note, Fantasia 2013 will showcase the Quebec Premiere of Wingard’s brilliant You’re Next the night before 24 Exposures, offering our audience the rare chance to observe the flipping of an actor/director/screenwriter creative relationship from one night to the next.
Joe Swanberg will host both screenings.
“Billy (Adam Wingard) is an erotic photographer whose images blur the line between fine art and pornography. Together with his girlfriend, Alex (Caroline White), he lives in a haze of drugs, sex and models. When a gorgeous model ends up dead, Billy draws the attention of Detective Michael Bamfeaux (Simon Barrett), an unstable cop dealing with some personal demons of his own. Meanwhile, Billy tries to lure Rebecca (Helen Rogers), a curious and innocent young woman, into his photography, while balancing a complicated relationship with Callie (Sophia Takal), his favorite model. As the murder investigation deepens, Detective Bamfeuax is drawn into Billy’s lurid world, which he may prefer to his own.”
