It’s been three years since Pilotgroove Pictures debuted a new film. Since the 2014 release of A Bloodless Crime, our team has not assembled to make another film. Tonight, thanks to the Boston 48 Hour Film Project, the wait is over. Last weekend, Pilotgroove Pictures was one of 59 Boston teams to write, shoot, edit and complete a short film in just 48 hours. Tonight, at 7:00pm at the Somerville Theater, our latest short – Don is the New Death – will make its big screen debut.
Don is the New Death is the eighth 48 hour film from Pilotgroove Pictures, and the second outside of New Hampshire. It was written and directed by P.J. Huot and Ben Peirce (Just Remember That They’re Dead, A Bloodless Crime) along with Jay Syrene and other contributors. The film is a fish out of water tale, starring Pilotgroove newcomer, Aaron Compagna as Don Foreman – a suburban husband who unwittingly inherits the role of Death. Compagna stars alongside Ben Peirce as Lawrence Soto, Don’s transition mentor and interim Death. With, sharp dialogue and Pilotgroove Picture’s signature flare for the morbidly absurd, this dark comedy is sure to have audiences gasping for air.
See Don is the New Death (and 14 other 48 hour films) at the Boston 48 Hour Film Project (Group C) screening – Thursday, June 8 at 7:00pm at the Somerville Theater in Boston. Tickets can be purchased online or at the box office for $11.
Yours, while supplies last – the “Don is the New Death” Lego® set.
