EXCLUSIVE: Rod Blackhurst, whose debut feature Here Alone won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at Tribeca in April, has signed with ICM Partners. Blackhurst also produced the postapocalyptic thriller with writer David Ebeltoft and Noah Lang.
Here Alone is set after a virus has destroyed civilization, leaving humanity divided into two groups: the uninfected and those whom the virus has turned into insatiably violent savages. Three survivors living deep in the woods must defend themselves from the infected while foraging for supplies, but when a supply expedition goes awry, one among them must make a terrible choice. Lucy Walters, Adam David Thompson, Shane West and Gina Piersanti star.
Blackhurst’s credits also include the documentary shorts Life, Alone Time and Early Innings and short films Night Swim and Would You. His other shorts have been featured on The Tonight Show, Funny or Die, RollingStone.com, Huffington Post and elsewhere. He continues to be repped by Oasis Media and Frankfurt Kurnit.
