The opening film of SXSW, A Quiet Place stunned audiences with its magnificent ability to mix terror and emotion. The genre directorial debut of John Krasinski, the film follows a family that must survive in a post-apocalyptic world where noise is the enemy.
The film is a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes and we had the chance to speak with the latter’s Andrew Form and Brad Fuller and have the video for you to see! In there, Form and Fuller discuss the importance of deaf actors and their representation, where A Quiet Place will stand in the company’s legacy, and how horror has evolved over the years since their company’s inception.
“A family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threatens their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.”
