Title: The Last Maccabee
Director: David Ethan Shapiro
Producer: David Ethan Shapiro, Anthony DiGiacomo, & Sage Scroope
NYU Affiliation: Non-NYU
Needs: Storyboard Artist and/or Concept Artist
Description of Project:
The first feature film from the award-winning team of NYU Alumni. Our films at Starlight Studios have screened at film festivals worldwide (including the Cannes Film Festival), and have won several awards (2012 Wasserman Finalist, 2012 National Board of Review Student Grant, etc).
The script for our first feature was selected as a SEMI-FINALIST for the Academy Nicholl Fellowship (www.oscars.org/nicholl). Former Academy Nicholl Semi-Finalists include Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star trek), Michael Ardnt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3), and Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul)!
This project is a huge opportunity to work on major independent feature production (shooting second quarter of 2016, A-list cast announcements coming soon). We are swinging for the fences + our goal is to make the Jewish Godfather.
