Ben Dickinson filmed First Winter, a post-apocalyptic tale of urban hipsters who are forced to channel their suppressed, inner Dan’l Boone and live off the land when the excrement comes in contact with the air moving machinery.
“The film begins with eight Brooklynites on a yoga retreat whose power and cellphone reception are cut off.
“Assuming the disruption is momentary, the group continues their drug use and sexual romps — until their food supply begins to run low, and a search party does not return.”
That’s when the film’s characters decide to kill a deer for a little protein.
And what’s more realistic, film-wise, than actually killing a deer?
That way, you don’t need all those expensive special effects or gallons of fake blood.
Only one problem . . .
