We have a brand new movie hitting theaters this weekend in the Fall. I had the chance to sit down with the writer/director of the film, Scott Mann.
Fall follows best friends Becky (Currey) and Hunter (Gardner) who find themselves at the top of a 2,000-foot radio tower. The movie was written by Jonathan Frank and Scott Mann, with Mann also directing the film.
The type of movie that Fall is making it essential for the actors to make us feel every single emotion throughout the film. You have two actresses at the top of this radio tower for almost two hours. Currey and Gardner both give two dynamic performances that make this movie a step above your typical mid-tier budget film. When Currey hones in during that third act, I clung to every word she said, and I was blown away.
To understand that the film was shot on a 100-foot tower with our two leads being up there makes this film a lot more special than if it was just done with CGI. It’s important to understand that in this day and age of these types of movies, Scott Mann could’ve taken the easy way out but instead gave us an extra layer of filmmaking that made the film special. Mann’s work on this film was great behind the lens.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Scott Mann about the inspiration behind the project, what it was it like shooting it, his love for RoboCop and if we will ever see the “Fuck Cut” of his film. Take a listen below.
