With less than two weeks remaining and 47% funding reached, Red 14 Films, partnering with authors Jason Ockert, Matt Bell, Monica Drake, and Scott Dominic Carpenter, aims to produce literary short films for each of their most recent books:
Neighbors of Nothing (Dzanc Books)
The Stud Book (Crown Publishers)
This Jealous Earth (Midwestern Gothic Press)
We at HFR can attest to the beauty of the company’s work, having had a small role in their short blurb trailer for Joshua Kornreich’s eBook release of The Boy Who Killed Caterpillars (Dzanc Books), which can be seen here.
The full trailer, which is just as mesmerizing, can be viewed here.
“Since its inception in 2011, the independent film production company Red 14 Films has produced over forty literary short films, known also as cinematic book trailers. Their decidedly artistic approach has earned them partnerships with authors such as Anthony Swofford (Jarhead), Victoria Redel (Loverboy), and Stefan Kiesbye (Your House is on Fire, Your Children All Gone), and performances in their productions by actors like Oscar nominee Eric Roberts.”
