The independent feature film Splinterheads produced by Atlantic Pictures in association with Offhollywood Pictures played in a New York theatre earlier this month and will be distributed by Paladin and Atlantic. Written and directed by Brant Sersen Splinterheads is a coming-of-age comedy starring newcomer Thomas Middleditch and Rachael Taylor (Transformers) as well as Lea Thompson (Back to the Future) and Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore). Offhollywood Pictures the content development and production arm of Offhollywood partnered with the producers to supply Red One cameras and technical support as well as post-production and DCP authoring services for the feature. Producer Darren Goldberg says The Red One camera was an amazing tool for us. Working with a digital format gave us the ability to let our actors improvise without worrying that we were blowing through our budget and gave us a lot of latitude during post-production. The Red One's image quality is unsurpassed by any other HD camera. People are constantly amazed to hear that we didn't shoot Splinterheads on 35mm. In addition to being recognized as a funny charming and energetic film Splinterheads has been praised by early reviewers for having a polished look and a 'shine' unusual in low-budget independent films says Offhollywood CTO/co-founder Mark L. Pederson. We're extremely proud that our Red support and post-production services helped to give Splinterheads a high-end visual quality worthy of theatrical release. The distribution climate for independent films is difficult these days and it's exciting to see this engaging underdog film — both in terms of plot and production budget — get out to screens across the U. S. Offhollywood
