CLARITY is STRIKE A POSE!!! Films first attempt at the mystery/thriller genre, and a more serious take in tone than what we usually offer. The first film shot with Dylan’s second camera, the PVGS500, it was a nifty experiment that brought together a lot of creative talent in their most dramatic roles to date. Sam Anderson plays the Detective, a man who is seeking for answers, for vengeance, for clarity. Damien McCoy plays the Boy, a young man who is seeking his lost girlfriend. Played by Whitney Arkin in her first STRIKE A POSE!!! role, the Girl is the victim caught in the manacles of a serial killer known only as the Venetian. In his stunning first performance since Ascension, Bob Novich returns to the digital screen as the killer, bringing presence and terror to the scenes.

As the Boy tries to convince the Detective of his girlfriend’s existence, the Detective begins to submerge himself in his own memories of his lost love, a woman taken from him under unnervingly similar circumstances. Can they find the girl in time? Or is she just a figment of the boy’s imagination? Why doesn’t she appear in any phone book or database? What is the game the Venetian is playing?

CLARITY is directed and edited by Dylan Hintz. Starring Sam Anderson, Damien McCoy, Bob Novich, and introducing Whitney Arkin. Music by Damien McCoy. Date of release TBA.

  • Pretty cool dude. Easily held my interest for the entire film. The ending was pretty cool, and I like how the whole thing was a little nebulous and open to some interpretation. Although I do think I have a pretty good idea 🙂

    Ok, I finally watched the entire thing. I’m just left with so many questions. Why do people keep appearing and disappearing? Why were people getting stabbed with scissors? Why was a detective touching evidence with his bare hands? And more importantly, why can’t I sit in the world’s most comfortable chair? I do really like the music though. It was good. Not as good as Bride though.

    How, interesting. Sorry that I haven’t commented until now Dylan, but we should set up a thread that explains the whole film in it’s entirety here on the site, so we don’t have people being confused about this. Top that off by having it in a members only section, that could increase the site traffic, if you want to do it. Also, looking forward to a planning session on saturday. See ya then man, later.

    WELL. You know I feel about this. I think you overused shaky cam and went beyond your own means in some shots.
    However, other bits stuck out as being perfect. The sounds are really good, most of the editing is top notch, and, for the circumstances you described to me for its creation, this is really really good stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

  • Watched it again. Still good stuff 🙂
