We had the pleasure of talking with director Duke Addleman on about his documentary Breathe Breana, a movie that tells the story of a champion surfer who suffers from a life-threatening disease.

Breathe Breana

Who? 
Breana Schroeder is the main force behind this movie. Her mother Caryn and her surfing partner Bobby Friedman appear as themselves. I do my Hitchcock with Breana at the camera after one of the interview segments. Indie Rights picked us up and has us on Apple TV, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, and Tubi TV.

Breathe Breana

What?
The story is about Breana, her struggle with the life threatening disease cystic fibrosis, and her relentless effort to become a surfing champion.

Breathe Breana

Where?
We filmed in Maui, San Onofre, Malibu, Oahu, Hermosa Beach, and Palos Verdes/San Pedro.

Breathe Breana

When?
This was a two-year shoot, taking place between April of 2016 and November of 2018. I edited the film in the winter of 2018/19, and began showing it in 2019. Indie Rights released us in June of 2019.

Breathe Breana

Why?
I made this film because Breana Schroeder is a marvel… because Breana is an inspiring, soul-enriching human being. I felt compelled to tell her story, and I believe I did it well. In fact, I dare you to watch it without welling up!

We had the pleasure of talking to David Zellis, the producer and co-writer of the indie horror flick Dark Forest.

Dark Forest

Who?
In 2013 we entered a filmmaking competition in Canada called CineCoup (basically American Idol for filmmakers) we didn’t make it far, but decided to make the movie anyway. We are located in Winnipeg Canada, so we used local talent some who been active in the community for years. The story revolves around four girls going on a camping trip getting away form the group’s psychotic boyfriend.

Dark Forest

What?
It is about a group of friends that go on a camping trip and are terrorized/stalked by one of the group’s jealous and psychotic boyfriend.

Dark Forest

Where?
We never really specify where it takes place, but we filmed in Winnipeg and outside of the city as well. We were very fortunate to have a friend that let us use their property that has a forest directly behind it.

Dark Forest

When?
We made it over the summers of 2013 and 2014. It is not set at any specific time, but it has an atmosphere of feeling like it was made in the eighties. We did a theatrical release ourselves across Western/Central Canada which we are extremely proud of. It outgrossed some high profile government funded films and at the local theatre it played at it was held over for three weeks while outgrossing some of the high profile Hollywood films it was playing alongside. It hit the streaming services in 2016 and was finally released on Blu-Ray/DVD on February 13th.

Dark Forest

Why?
Good question. In Canada, the system is very much government funded which although seems and can sometimes be a good idea, it unfortunately causes more problems then it solves. So we wanted to make a feature on our own terms and this is the end result.

Dark Forest

How?
It is available on a number of streaming services (links below). For horror fans that prefer the physical medium, they can officially get a copy on Blu-Ray/DVD on Amazon.com and at independent retailers across Canada.
