Furst goes digital with ‘Everything’

Digital lensing shortens shooting sked on indie drama

Furst Films Prods. and director Marc Forster have begun principal photography on the “Everything Put Together.” Indie pic will be shot digitally, knocking the lensing sked down to just two weeks.

“Everything” concerns a suburban couple unable to pick up the pieces after the tragic death of their baby. The tragedy worsens when friends turn away, unable to cope with the loss. Radha Mitchell (“High Art”) stars along with Justin Louis, Megan Mullally, Catherine Lloyd Burns, Matt Malloy, Michelle Hicks, Alan Ruck and Mark Boone Jr.

Forster, Burns and Adam Forgash co-wrote “Everything.” Forgash will also exec produce with Jill Silverthorne; Sean Furst serves as producer.

“Everything” will be Forster’s second feature and the first of two he will make with Furst. The helmer first gained attention as director of Slamdance fest’s hit “Loungers,” which took home the audience award.

“Everything” is the first project Furst has shot on digital video. He believes the shortened shooting schedule and subsequent lower budget will allow for greater returns in the end. “I actually think this is going to be the cause of a new revolution in independent filmmaking,” he said.

Furst Films will next begin work on “Long Lines,” based on Remar Sutton’s novel about an eccentric Southern aristocrat who hears a murder being committed. Furst will co-produce with Etchie Stroh’s Moonstone Entertainment, fulfilling the second commitment of their three-picture deal. They previously produced “Blue Ridge Fall.”
