Scott Man’s FALL debuts on NETFLIX
Fall by our CCAD Alumni, Director Scott Man and writer Jonathan Frank is trending world wide on Netflix! Fall is a survival thriller directed by Scott, from Newton Aycliffe and co-written by Jonathan which stars actors Grace Caroline Currey and Virginia Gardner.
“Drowning in a sea of grief 51 painful weeks after the life-altering incident that scarred her for life, emotionally fragile rock climber Becky reluctantly decides to confront her fears, and as her thrill-seeking friend Hunter re-enters Becky’s ruined life, the two experienced climbers embark on a high-risk climbing adventure to the top of the abandoned 2,000-foot B67 TV tower: an anxiety-inducing, vertigo-inspiring construction of weather-beaten metal and rattling rivets in the middle of the Mojave desert. However, when the peril-laden climb doesn’t go as planned, the women must summon up every last ounce of courage and strength to devise a plan for a safe return home–or die trying.”
Originally intended to be a short. According to director Scott Mann, the idea came to him while he was shooting Final Score “We were filming at height, and off camera we got into this interesting conversation about height and the fear of falling and how that’s inside of all of us, really, and how that can be a great device for a movie.”
Fall was filmed in IMAX format in the Shadow Mountains, in California’s Mojave Desert. The look of the fictitious B67 tower in the film was inspired by the real KXTV/KOVR tower, a radio tower in Walnut Grove, California, which is 2,049 ft (625 m) high and one of the tallest structures in the world.
