With the ability to film movies on an iPhone, having drones replace crane shots, cheap software to edit, and using the internet to talk to music students for scores, do-it-yourself filmmaking is more possible now than anytime before. An update New York family has done it all from A-to-Z making films. Their latest, a horror movie, entitled THE DEEPER YOU DIG (2020), was released to fantastic reviews.
When Echo (Zelda Adams) decides to do a late night sledding ride, an accident occurs leading to her disappearance. Her mother Ivy (Toby Poser) begins searching for her with flyers upon telephone polls to knocking on neighbors doors. One such man, Kurt (John Adams), who is restoring a neighboring structure, tells both Ivy and the police he knows nothing about the girl. However, his role in her disappearance may be more than he says.
THE DEEPER YOU DIG was co-written, co-directed, and co-starred in by husband-and-wife team John Adams and Toby Poser. Their youngest daughter Zelda Adams also stars. With a very small cast, their fantastic cinematography with night and winter filming, and strong acting, the movie has actually received a blu-ray release by boutique label, Arrow Video.
