Promo Trailer for Kaare Andrews' Altitude Has Landed - Updated
It was only three days ago that I featured a poster for a film called Altitude from first-time director Kaare Andrews. I wasn't expecting to hear about it again for a while, as I had thought it had just started shooting. Well, apparently a promo trailer has already been cut and released, and we have it for you right now. As a reminder, Altitude is about a rookie pilot and a group of friends who decide to take a small plane to a concert. When she encounters a storm, things go wrong and they're stuck climbing out of control, but then something else shows up. I don't think I need to say much more than that, so fire this trailer up now.
Update: Director Kaare Andrews sent me an e-mail regarding this trailer. "I just wanted to clarify that the promo trailer that has made it out into the web somehow was simply a promotional piece created to help raise funds for the final film. It was a quick little thing shot in a day on a real plane with no money. We now have money, are shooting for longer than one day and have an entirely new cast." Due this update from Kaare and the response to this trailer overall, I've decided to pull it from the site for the time being.
Altitude is directed by Kaare Andrews, who is making his feature debut after directing a handful of shorts previously. The screenplay was written by Paul A. Birkett, of Escape Velocity, Mindstorm, and Crash Landing previously. The film is being developed by the Escape Factory, but they don't have a US distributor yet and it's still actually shooting in Canada. Stay tuned for more updates on Altitude as they arrive.
