On August 20th Hollywood’s historic Egyptian Theatre hosted a 10th anniversary screening of The Blair Witch Project followed by a Q&A with several members of the film’s cast and crew. Of course Dread Central was there, camera in-hand, to record the auspicious occasion.
Taking part in the evening’s festivities were co-writer and co-director Dan Myrick, cast members Joshua Leonard and Heather Donahue, production designer Ben Rock, and producers Robin Cowie and Michael Monello. On its surface the film told the story of three student filmmakers who in October of 1994 disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland, while shooting a documentary…A year later their footage was found. But it was so much more than that. It was lightning in a bottle that, through a viral marketing campaign that will probably never be duplicated, set the standard for the cinéma-vérité experience.
Check out the video below, and keep it here for updates on what Dan, Ben, and the rest of the gang have coming up in the future.
