Speaking of black filmmakers telling unconventional stories... this upcoming project from New York-based award-winning filmmaker, Jon-Carlos Evans (photo above), is one to watch. 

Details in the press release we received, below:

Monday, November 12, 2012 - Perfect Entropy Productions announces CANON, U.S.A. and SOUND DEVICES, LLC as the official sponsors of the upcoming feature film, "All Tomorrow's Children." In this partnership, Canon will spotlight the film's use of its C300 Digital Cinema and Cinema EOS lenses to create a visual palette of Midwestern winter noir. Sound Devices, LLC is providing the production with the Pix 240i HD Recorder.

“All Tomorrow’s Children” is a coming of age, surrealist-thriller about three high school misfits yearning to escape Saint Louis, MO, a Midwestern city of absentee parents, failed institutions and peer bullying. Equally ostracized and alone, the three friends find solace in their friendship, music, recreational drugs and night-time cruising. Nonetheless, when the trio is accused of an act of vandalism and signs of the collapsing reality manifest more rapidly as time moves toward the supposed December 31, 1999 “End of the World,” they don cartoon masks and formal wear to fight chaos with the only weapon they have – more chaos.

“All Tomorrow’s Children” is a mixture of vitriolic realism and expressionistic surrealism - “Zero de Conduite” meets “Donnie Darko” and “Brazil” meets Larry Clark’s “Kids.” It is a film about the rapidity of change amongst the confusion of learning how to live and evolve from a teenager to adult and adult to human.

"All Tomorrow's Children" is the debut feature film from filmmaker/audiovisual artist Jon-Carlos Evans and his company Perfect Entropy Productions. Evans is a graduate of the Webster University Film Production program and the City College of New York Media Arts MFA. As a filmmaker, his previous films such as “Antithesis,” “(Goodbye), Brooklyn,” and “Julya” been awarded and screened in the Mexico International Film Festival, Honolulu International Film Festival, Visionfest NYC, and two consecutive Asian-American International Film Festivals. Evans is also the founder of audiovisual band ReVerse Bullets, who have performed exclusive audiovisual sets at the MashRome Film Festival, Live Performers Meetings Rome, NYC Re/Mixed Media Festival and Dimanche Rouge Experimental Theater-Paris.

Our whole team is honored and excited to have this partnership with Canon, “ said the film’s director Jon-Carlos Evans. “Some of my earliest [digital] projects were shot on Canon’s XL2, 5D, and 7D. This partnership and opportunity to film with the C300 feels like a natural evolution. We have some unique and beautiful images planned for this film that can best be described as “surrealist winter noir.

Perfect Entropy Productions is“All Tomorrow's Children” begins begin principal photography on December 1, 2012 for three weeks in the director's hometown of Saint Louis, Missouri.

    The concept sounds interesting. I yet to play around with the C300 but it seems in a few years we'll film-style digital cameras everyone can afford. That being said, I hear this has along way to go before catching up with the Alexa.
