Is there a body in that box? The release of this first still coincides with the new announcement that Blow the Man Down will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. This is the film that Dan worked, a year ago February in Maine.
Directed by Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy this movie tells the story of the Connolly Sisters (pictured Sophie Lowe and Morgan Saylor) who are in mourning, but between a dead stranger in the ocean, a missing murder weapon, and the increasingly shady behavior of their recently deceased mom’s friends, they’ve barely had a chance to register their loss. While grieving for this loss, the Connolly Sisters suddenly find they have a crime to cover up, leading them deep into the underbelly of their salty Maine fishing village.
It had been rumored to debut last year at Sundance, before eventually landing in NYC this month. Dan asked for a comp ticket, but the producers are holding on to their cache, while hunting for paying customers. They’re still looking to sell it to a distributor. The film has yet to get any official release date. Whenever it comes out, he should be in the credits, since he is already credited in IMDB. If it goes direct to streaming, I know that I will first fast forward to the credits.
Dan did set dressing for this independent film on location. Now he is doing that kind of work as a studio job in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which has long since left naval jurisdiction. This is a union job, as opposed to an independent one. It pays better, but offers less artistic freedom.
