Thanks to the Cannes Film Market, it seems like a new horror trailer or poster is coming coming out every day. Rumors about Todd Levin’s STATIC 3D began at last year’s American Film Market and now, thanks to Cannes, a new trailer has been released for the film with just enough to have us here at Backwoods Horror wanting to know more. Staring Milo Ventimiglia, Sarah Shahi, and Sara Paxton, and with a budget under one million dollars, STATIC is the first independent feature to be shot in 3D using two Sony PMW-F3 cameras – Sony’s version of the RED camera – rigged specifically to to film in 3D (similar, if on a smaller scale, to Peter Jackson’s setup with the RED cameras for the upcoming HOBBIT feature). I can’t wait to feast my eyes on the work they’ve done with such limited resources as it could herald in a new wave of low budget, independent 3D horror films.
