Trailer Arrives With an Alien Hunger



Post Thumb:


Trailer Arrives With an Alien HungerA trailer has arrived for the latest invasion flick to hit our radar, Alien Hunger, and as always we are here to scoop it up and throw it at you like an angry monkey does feces. Yep, that’s the kind of vigor we have around here.

From the Press Release
Aliens with a ravenous appetite for summertime campers have descended upon AlphaDogs in the action sci-fi thriller Alien Hunger. Starring Richard Hatch (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Vernon Wells (Road Warrior, Commando), Alien Hunger keeps audiences on the edge of their seats as something that’s “not of this earth” terrorizes and feeds on the flesh of campers only yards away from the comforts of the park ranger’s home. The film will screen at various festivals and be available on DVD later this year.

A full-service indie-friendly post facility for over 10 years, the team at AlphaDogs has extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in fixing the toughest problems when it comes to the independent filmmaking process. Producer Jack Tucker and editor Nancy Brindley Bhagia had concerns as to how the “horror look” would be created in the film due to lighting issues within some of the footage. “Due to our shooting schedule, we used multiple cameras, which affected the lighting, making some scenes look very different from others,” said Tucker. “I needed a post facility that could fix the problems with the lighting and also take the time and interest in getting the look I envisioned, which I why I choose AlphaDogs.” Because camera manufacturer settings vary, the end result is contrasting images depending on which camera is used. Working with multiple camera footage in post is a tedious task that requires close attention to details. It’s crucial to work with a skilled colorist who not only has an understanding of the technical issues associated with multi-camera footage, but also possesses a good eye for color in creating the vibe and feel conducive to the genre.

Terence Curren, founder and lead colorist at AlphaDogs, consulted with Tucker and Bhagia, reviewing all the footage to get a idea for which direction to go with the choice of color before starting the color-grading process. Curren comments, “Colors used in a film can greatly impact the story. It’s important to determine both the plot and subplots and then decide how you will carve out the story with the subjective manipulation of color. Indie films are particularly fun to work on, as you have more freedom with creative choices and in working one-on-one with the client in creating the overall look of the film.” Curren’s extensive technical knowledge of Avid systems, combined with years of color-grading experience on feature films, proved crucial in getting the finish Tucker was looking for.

“We were thrilled with what Terence was able to do,” said Tucker. “The creative choices that were made really brought the story and characters to life, achieving the overall creepy and gruesome vibe I was looking for.” Tucker continues, “We will certainly be back with future projects based on the first-class talent at AlphaDogs and superior quality of the final project.”

Alien Hunger is written and directed by Edward Conna and produced by Nick Brett, Edward Conna, Edward Plumb, John Sanna, and Jack Tucker with Irena Belle Films.

Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In



Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The film hits theaters April 20.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
