"Black Metal" Short Film To Premiere At Sundance 2013

From the creators of the Sundance hit short, "Hellion," producer Kelly Williams, writer/director Kat Candler and Jonny Mars will premiere their newest short film, "Black Metal" at this year’s 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

After a career spent mining his music from the shadows, the actions of one fan create a chain-reaction for the lead singer of a black metal band. "Black Metal" stars Jonny Mars (Hellion, Saturday Morning Massacre, A Teacher), Heather Kafka (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Saturday Morning Massacre, Joe), Lowell Bartholomee, and introduces Addisyn Stevenson.

The film, produced by Kat Candler, Jonny Mars and Kelly Williams, was shot by Andrew Droz Palermo (cinematographer of You’re Next, V/H/S and A Teacher) and edited by Duane Graves (director of The Wildman of the Navidad and Boneboys).

They comment: “We’re thrilled to be returning to Park City with our newest film, Black Metal. Sundance has been an amazing home to us this last year. We’re so humbled by their support of our films and our careers.”

The 2012 Sundance short, "Hellion" went on to play over 40 festivals and is currently in development as a feature film partnered with the Sundance Institute. Kelly Williams, producer of "Hellion," "Black Metal," and Yen Tan’s 2013 Sundance feature film "Pit Stop," was a 2012 Sundance Creative Producing Lab fellow with the feature version of "Hellion."

I always thought they should have made a horror film using a blackmetal character, dressed in black and in corpse paint, letting the music fuel his rage on society..
