Boy Scout's Honor Release Info

8-year-old Aaron Averhart was just a year shy of being able to move up from Cub Scout to Boy Scout when he received a special request from an admired Boy Scout leader, William (Bill) Sheehan. As Aaron rose up the Boy Scout ranks, he slowly became aware of Sheehan’s grooming techniques and began to realize he had much more sinister intentions in store for him. If Aaron’s parents had known that since the 1920s the Boy Scouts of America had been keeping hidden files on dangerous pedophiles in their ranks while failing to warn the public, the police, the scouts, their parents, or even fully removing them from the Boy Scouts program, they would have never allowed young Aaron to be part of such a complicit and corrupt organization. Boy Scout's Honor will be available on demand on Tuesday December 13th

Following Films Podcast: Erik Messerschmidt on Devotion, Michael Mann, and David Fincher

  For the upcoming major motion picture Devotion – the anticipated Korean War-era feature film based on the acclaimed book and directed by J. D. Dillard, starring Jonathan Majors, Glen Powell, Christina Jackson, and Joe Jonas and coming out November 23 -- award-winning director of photography Erik Messerschmidt, ASC leveraged his decades of experience to create stunning visuals that entwine narrative, action sequences, landscape, and compelling insights into the human condition. To bring dynamic vibrancy to the film, which focuses on the true story of a black naval officer who befriends a white naval officer, Messerschmidt used real planes shot in actual locations. Many of the cockpit interiors, particularly the “Bearcat” sequence in the beginning of the film, are entirely authentic. For the combat sequences, the actors were shot in front of an LED volume similar to “The Mandalorian” so the footage could be captured in camera. A big movie shot on a budget much smaller than typical Holl
