A South Dakota micro indie project that filmed under the radar in Pine Ridge is the fruit of a creative collaboration (the shingle is called Felix Culpa) between actress Riley Keough and producer/commercials director Gina Gammell. They move behind the camera for Beast – a project that started taking shape in August of 2017 and might still be filming this year. We don’t know much more than this beyond other than it’s populated by non-actor residents/youth and creating an immersive community experience not unlike the work a Jonas Carpignano.
