Barney Burman's Wild Boar - Hamilton Film Festival




FILTH, Adam Ciolfi, 15m, Canada

Bloodied, bruised and left for dead a man will stop at nothing to exact gruesome revenge on those who wronged him. Aggressive, raw and unrelenting, director Adam Ciolfi will change the way you think about animation. With 8 major awards and 14 nominations to date, FILTH is aggressively building its reputation on the film festival circuit.


Barney Burman's Wild Boar, 98m, USA

A world where man is suddenly no longer at the top of the food chain. A small group of Geocachers -- modern day weekend treasure hunters -- go searching in the desert for a bounty left by an eccentric billionaire. Instead they end up being hunted by a mutant boar with an axe to grind. It's a race for survival and those who don't make it are sure to be served up for dinner. 



In 2004, Barney opened his own make-up fx studio, creating characters for such films as Mission: Impossible III, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, Blades of Glory and Camille, starring James Franco and Sienna Miller. In 2008, he was hired to co-design the make-up for Tom Cruise in the summer blockbuster Tropic Thunder.

His artistic skills and personal esthetic proved rewarding when, in 2010, Barney was honored with an Academy Award for his work in JJ Abrams's reboot of Star Trek.

Most recently Barney found adventure traipsing around the country turning Sacha Baron Coen into 6 different characters for his latest and most scandalous project Who is America.

And through it all, Barney the cineaste – having dreams of being an actor since childhood, and being a secret writer for the past 25 years – longed to play a bigger role as a filmmaker.

Barney’s feature film directorial debut, Wild Boar is finished and expected out early in 2019.
