2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #11. Jeff Brown – The Beach House

2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #11. Jeff Brown – The Beach House

In an unexpected trajectory (along the lines of a Lance Hammer or Markus Schleinzer), with close to two decades of production and locations department gigs that include Jean-Marc Vallee’s Demolition, Sophie Barthes’ Cold Souls and Julie Delpy’s Two Days in New York, Jeff Brown should be debuting his feature film debut sometime in 2019. His passion sci-fi/horror project The Beach House is an off the radar offering that found a great trio of indie producers in Sophia Lin, Andrew D. Corkin and Tyler Davidson and recently surfaced at the IFP’s No Borders program. No details on the players.
