Camera Trap

Canadian sales agent 108 Media has presold wildlife documentarian Alex Verner’s Camera Trap, about a British wildlife crew pursuing a rare Amur Snow Leopard in central Asia, to Taiwan’s Pomi International, THR reports.

Verner’s debut film is a “found footage”-style feature “following a British wildlife film crew armed with the latest camera technology as they pursue local sightings of a rare wildcat in Central Asia, Camera Trap is atmospheric, visually stunning and terrifyingly real. Filmed as documentary with an unprecedented level of authenticity, Camera Trap catches the crew both ‘on’ and ‘off’ camera as they track down their prey. The film is a mix between Frozen Planet and The Blair Witch Project.

Camera Trap was shot on the Isle of Man and in Nepal, and is produced by Jason Newmark (Triangle, Severance, Creep) and Steve Christian.
