This summer, you’ll be able to see the Float N’ Flag logo, as well as the names Trevor Kutcy and Brad Snyder, in the credits of the film “The Drownsman”. The film is scheduled for international release, and Trevor/Brad worked many hours with the production company, cast and crew in the pool to also help capture the shots involving water. It was all shot using FNF underwater cameras. Unless you like scary movies, this may not be the movie for you, but at least you can say “I know those guys!” Share the cool news.
After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, she begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her post trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world but her fear intensifies and she is faced with the vision of a dark figure that haunts her day and night.
After watching her struggle for one year with the phobia and visions, Madison’s four friends attempt an unconventional intervention in which they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of this figure that haunts them, it reaches out and begins dragging them to a horrifying place that they can never come back from.
“We’re creating a film that defies physics and we’re shooting 95% of it without CGI so we’ve had to create some innovative sets to pull off these unique water effects,” says Chad Archibald. “The story and pace of this film is totally different than previous ones, it showcases an element we often don’t think of as something to fear – water. When our lead Madison has an accident in the water, her hydrophobia escalates, the story begins to take some twists and some terrifying turns. Cody Calahan and I have created a new type of horror story, while still paying homage to the classic genre films we know and love.”
