They'll never leave… Our good friend and producer/co-host of The Golden Briefcase podcast Tim Buel has completed his first feature film, titled In Residence, and it's now available to watch online for free. Early last year we supporter his Kickstarter for the project, which billed the film as a "shoestring horror flick" that they would shoot on their own for $5000. They got all the funding, and now little more than a year later, they've completed work. And to show it off they've released the entire horror film online for free for your viewing pleasure. Just don't forget to support the guys who made this - Tim and Cody Rhyse, since they put everything into this. And it's truly an independent, shoe-string budget film made by passionate filmmakers.
In addition with launching the film, the guys have launched a new website for In Residence where you can read more on the story, the cast, and watch the film. Connor J. Smith stars as Connor, who returns to his hometown after his estranged mother suddenly dies. Cody Rhyse, Emma Buel and James Meehan also star.
Connor Wright reluctantly returns to his hometown after his estranged mother suddenly passes away. Tasked with managing the sale of the estate, he employs the help of Jessi and Alex, his childhood friends, to assist in the organization of things. As the trio bond again after years apart, events begin to transpire that suggest that they may not be alone in the now-vacant home. A terrible secret and the aftermath of some nefarious deeds of the past stalk the grounds of the residence, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
Click above for the movie page where you can watch the film. In Residence is "the first feature length presentation from Tim Buel and Cody Rhyse," and was funded entirely through Kickstarter contributions in January of 2014. There's a page on the website with info on how to support the filmmakers, so if you liked the film or the filmmakers and want to make sure they keep making films, head right over there. Even though Tim is already a part of the FirstShowing family, I'm happy to still support his filmmaking. We've always supported storytellers & filmmakers of all kinds, and that includes standing behind their work and featuring it to spread the word. We hope you give In Residence a shot. Let us know your thoughts if you do.
