EVENT DESCRIPTION

LAST CALL, GAVIN MICHAEL BOOTH, 76m, CANADA

Shot in two true single takes, filmed simultaneously in two different parts of a city, Last Call, is a real time feature presented in split screen showcasing both ends of a wrong number phone call that has the potential to save a life.

Last Call follows a suicidal alcoholic on the anniversary of his son’s death. When he attempts to call a crisis hotline, a misdial connects him with a single mother working as the night janitor at a local community college. The split screen feature showcases both characters in real-time as they navigate a life-changing conversation.

The film’s score was also recorded live in a single-take. Our composer, Adrian Ellis, to match the real-time approach taken to creating the film, scored the film live in a 1000 seat theatre to an audience of local area high school students. They were able to witness this unique approach to scoring the film and learn about how film music is written and created. With this, the music has a vibrance and raw quality to it.

The split bar you see in the film rotates between horizontal and vertical, switching several times throughout the film as it applies to the characters and their emotional connection at any given point.

 

Gavin Michael Booth is an award winning filmmaker hailing from Toronto, Canada. He works as a writer, director, producer and editor. His latest film “The Scarehouse” was distributed by NBC/Universal (USA) in 2015 (currently available on Amazon Prime & Showtime) with international releasing including the Philippines, UK, Australia, Germany and more. The Scarehouse won Best Feature at the New York City Horror Film Festival. Booth was recently nominated for two videos of the Year awards for Canadian Country Music.

In October 2015 Booth broke new filmmaking ground teaming up with producer Jason Blum (The Purge, Get Out) to create the world’s first movie broadcast live using Twitter’s Periscope App. The film was a success with worldwide media coverage.

Booth has worked with some of the top entertainers in the music industry including Music Videos and documentary projects for Eminem’s D-12, Todrick Hall, SYML, Third Eye Blind, Vanessa Carlton and more. These projects have aired on global television as well as appeared on best-selling DVDs and Enhanced CDs released by major labels.
