Our partners at Blackmagic Design are inviting all LAPPG members to a screening of a film called “Stand!” at the DGA on December 5th.
The story of “Stand!” revolves around the general strike that occurred in Winnipeg in 1919, an event that inspired such modern causes as the Occupy movement, as well as many union efforts throughout history. Directed by Robert Adetuyi (“Stomp the Yard”, “Turn It Up”), the movie uses a musical format to tell a “Romeo & Juliet” style love story set in the violent events of the era. Starring Gregg Henry (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Laura Wiggins (“Shameless”), Marshall Williams (“Glee”), and Hayley Sales (“Deadpool 2”). “Stand!” is slated for release in 2019.
The evening will consist of a screening for the film, followed by a panel with director Rob Adetuyi, Producer Danny Schur, and Director of Photography Roy Wagner ASC, as they discuss the process of making such a unique film, the musical format and shooting entirely with URSA Mini Pro cameras.
It’s free! Please to RSVP to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/stand-screening-panel-tickets-80380071959
