MOONSHINE POST-PRODUCTION PROJECTS
SMALL GROUP THE MOVIE
Directed by Matt Chastain, “Small Group The Movie” is a feature film centered around documentary filmmaker R. Scott Cooper — played by Sterling Hurst — who moves across the country to make a documentary about the diminishing impact of Christianity. After learning his producer’s true intention to create a hit piece — rather than an objective documentary — Cooper starts to back away from the project … but due to financial hardship, is forced to take the job. The undercover filmmaker infiltrates a “small group” full of skepticism, curiosity and tragedy that challenge his own beliefs. His journey is one audiences will find intriguing and relatable. The film was mostly shot in Athens, GA, and Atlanta-based Moonshine Post-Production did the full color-finishing, sound design and mixing for the feature film. “Small Group The Movie” premiers in Atlanta on October 19 as one of the first markets in the U.S. to show the film.
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (“Saw”), “St. Agatha” is currently touring the horror genre film festival circuit. Set in the 1950s in small-town Georgia, a pregnant young woman named Mary seeks refuge in a convent. What starts out as the perfect place to have a child turns dark as she learns the sick and twisted truth of the convent and the odd people lurking within its halls. During this year’s Frightfest in London, several members of the cast and crew descended on London to share the film with horror audiences. Moonshine’s team was there as well to celebrate their role in the the post-production of the film, which just received a theatrical release. Atlanta-based Moonshine Post-Production did total editorial, full color finishing, sound design.
Known for their twisted and macabre web series highlighting the eeriest films found around the world, horror anthology, Fear Haus, has recently launched the long-awaited release of their newest episodes online. This release comes just months after their self proclaimed “Fear Week” — where selected “Fear Makers” gathered at Fear Haus’ headquarters (Moonshine Post-Production in Atlanta) to create 30 new episodes over the course of one week. Fear Haus first caught the attention of horror fanatics across the globe when they released their first episode to YouTube. The channel quickly gained traction as creator Blair Bathory and Moonshine-Post founder Drew Sawyer worked together to produce a platform for indie horror short films to fall under one name. Moonshine Post-Production did all of the post-production on the series. A new episode is released each Wednesday here on YouTube.
Some of Moonshine’s hard work can be also seen in the in the recent debut of AMC Networks original series, “Lodge 49.” Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach, CA about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and “Luminous Knight” of the order, Ernie (Brent Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may — or may not — put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he’s lost. The series was filmed almost entirely in Georgia, with several key post-production processes (including some by Atlanta-based Moonshine Post-Production) were done in Georgia. Watch trailer for “Lodge 49”. The season finale aired this past Sunday, and the show has been recently been renewed for another season.
