You know about those young whippersnappers out there dancing and grinding and convulsing to a new brand of electronic music that they've titled dubstep, right? Well, who would have thought that anybody would ever make a dark, psychological drama with that music genre right at it's core. You may not have been thinking it, but Filly Brown filmmakers Youssef Delara and Victor Teran were one step ahead of you with their new film Snap. Set to have its world premiere at SXSW this Monday, March 11th, the gnarly teaser trailer for the film is now embedded below.
Oh, and full disclosure, while our Festivals Editor Ryland Aldrich is heading up coverage of the fest for us, he's also headed to Austin as a producer on the film. Congrats, Ryland! -- now get back to work.
Jim is a painfully shy, socially awkward music savant whose inner demons get stirred up when he develops an obsession with Wendy, a young clinical social worker, who is drawn to Jim by her naïve desire to save people. His fixation grows more menacing after she rejects his romantic advances and Wendy is forced to seek out the counsel of her mentor, Kevin. Together they attempt to unravel the secrets of Jim's inner torment before it spirals out of control. A raw psychological thriller set in the underground world of dubstep DJ scene, SNAP takes us on a dark and terrifying journey into the depths of the psychopathic mind as it threatens to explode into horrific violence.
Starring Jake Hoffman (CLICK), Nikki Reed (TWILIGHT), Thomas Dekker (KABOOM), and Scott Bakula (QUANTUM LEAP), SNAP is written by Victor Teran (BEDROOMS) and co-directed by Youssef Delara (FILLY BROWN) and Victor Teran. It is produced by Amir Delara (FILLY BROWN), Ryland Aldrich, Victor Teran and Youssef Delara.
