Hobo With a Shotgun at SUNDANCE

Post: January 19/11

Congratulations to Jason Eisener NS and the entire Yer Dead Productions team on being added to the list of 2011 Sundance Film Festival feature premieres.

Hobo With a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer (Bladerunner), Gregory Smith (Everwood) and Rob Wells (Trailer Park Boys), started off as a two-minute short film which won the Grindhouse Trailer Contest put on by the SXSW (South by South West) Film Festival and Robert Rodriguez.  After winning the contest and going viral-  the monster industry support led the making of the extended feature film.

This will be the second trip to Sundance for Yer Dead Productions having scored an honourable mention in 2009 for their short Treevenge.

Hobo With a Shotgun 1Hobo With a Shotgun was shot in Halifax, NS and profiles a hobo fighting to clean up an out-of-control town with the help of only his 20-gauge shotgun.

It is…well…not for the faint of heart – to put it mildly.

What does do a heart good is the opportunity to showcase this film made in Atlantic Canada at SundanceRobert Redford’s film festival has been the launching pad for many an independent flick including Reservoir Dogs, An Inconvenient Truth and Little Miss Sunshine.
