New Trailer for Split Screen Drama 'Last Call' Starring Sarah Booth
"Maybe we can talk about something else?" Mill Creek Entertainment has revealed a new official US trailer for the indie film Last Call, a small drama from filmmaker Gavin Michael Booth. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2019, and also played at the Dances With Films Festival. It tells the tale of a bitterly alone man, Scott, who calls the suicide prevention hotline, but accidentally calls Beth, a janitor. Last Call is a split screen real-time feature film. The entire movie is comprised of two single-take shots, merged together and without cuts as the film plays out with two camera crews in different parts of a city as we follow each character. The score for the film was also composed and recorded in real-time by Adrian Ellis to add to the ephemeral aesthetic. This innovative, gripping cinematic feat is anchored by two incredible performances by Sarah Booth & Daved Wilkins. This seems like a cool concept, and it looks rather touching and heartfelt.
Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin Michael Booth's Last Call, direct from YouTube:
