The highest spot in our countdown for a first time filmmaker on our list belongs to Alexandre Moors – the Filmmaker Magazine Top 25 New Faces (Summer ’12) talent’s Blue Caprice is imposing because it details the true story crime spree before it is even conceived. If his videoclips/short films work is proof, this should be visually arresting observation. Grouping of actors Tim Blake Nelson, Joey Lauren Adams, Al Sapienza, Leo Fitzpatrick and Isaiah Washington topline the film. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one.
Gist: Blue Caprice examines of one of the most charged and enigmatic events of the past decade: the 2002 shooting spree that terrorized the Washington, D.C. area and would come to be known as the Beltway sniper attacks. The film tells the story of the two snipers, Lee Malvo and John Williams, during the months leading up to the shootings, piecing together clues in an attempt to understand the circumstances and motives behind their horrific actions.
Release Date: Sundance Film Festival premiere in the NEXT section. Should be the film that attracts the most attention in the section from potential distributors.
