James Quinn Wraps Latest Project Daughter of Dismay
Releases New Images from Shoot
First Short Film Shot on 70mm IMAX
Austria –Sodom & Chimera Productions has announced production has wrapped on Daughter of Dismay, the latest blending of arthouse and horror from filmmaker James Quinn. Daughter of Dismay was filmed deep in the Austrian woods. The first narrative short film in the history of cinema to be shot and presented in 70mm IMAX, the original negatives are going to be sent to Los Angeles, where 70mm IMAX, regular 70mm, and 35mm prints will be struck for exhibition ahead of a 2019 festival run.
Of the shoot, Quinn said, “Daughter of Dismay was always supposed to be a big project, presented in the most epic format it could be presented in. At first, we were aiming for regular 70mm but upgraded to 70mm IMAX only weeks before the shoot. We’d like for people to not just watch this film, but to be completely immersed in it and feel everything that’s happening. 70mm IMAX was exactly what we needed. Not just that, we felt like the world needed a different kind of IMAX presentation for a change, not a big Hollywood blockbuster or a space documentary, but an artistic, heartfelt film with horror elements, something that no one could imagine in this format.”
