In 2009, I had the pleasure of working on a little independent Seattle film called “The Details”, but it certainly wasn’t as little as the other independent films I’ve been a part of. This film featured stars like Spiderman’s Tobey Maguire, along with Elizabeth Banks, Ray Liotta, Laura Linney, Dennis Haysbert, and Kerry Washington. Writer/Director Jacob Aaron Estes had huge success with the film’s 2011 Sundance festival premiere, scoring a record-breaking deal with The Weinstein Company.
After some re-editing and continued festival tours, the film opened in theaters this November 2nd. This is what they call a “platform release”. The film was in 14 theaters nationwide during the first week, then expanded to 73 theaters. As word-of-mouth spreads, the movie will be on more screens, and they’re hoping for some sort of award recognition come next year’s awards season.
I worked as a Grip on the film. Here’s a trailer:
