Actor Nico Tortorella (Scream 4, The Following, Younger) stars in Hunter&Game, an indie comedy that answers the question What if Spinal Tap took place in Brooklyn in 2015? Hunter&Game will have its East Coast Premiere at the 2015 AoBFF.
The 2015 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is proud to screen the East Coast Premiere of Hunter&Game, a new indie documentary-style comedy about a band youve probably never heard of. The film stars Nico Tortorella of TV Land’s hit show Younger and Cameron Scoggins of Playwrights Horizons. AoBFF calls it “a hilarious update of Spinal Tap, set in the Williamsburg music scene.”
The band called Hunter&Game consists of two twenty-something best friends named Sasha (Cameron Scoggins) and Carson (Nico Tortorella.) Over the last year and a half, the Brooklyn-based duo have created a buzz around their indie-electronic project and are poised to have a breakthrough with the release of their debut LP.
A week before the release, Sasha and Carson welcome a Catalan documentary film crew into their Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment (which doubles as a practice space) and let the documentarians shadow their lives. Despite their excitement about the debut album and upcoming tour, things dont go as Sasha and Carson had hoped. The film crew gingerly follows the action, realizing they have stumbled upon a more interesting story than the one they anticipated.
The film was shot almost entirely in Brooklyn in many well-known Brooklyn venues. Because of the fleeting nature of Brooklyns underground music scene two of the venues in the film 285 Kent and Body Actualized Center have already closed down.
