topic icon DVD authoring for Dark Was The Night feature

We have just completed DVD authoring for the 2016 DVD release of Dark Was The Night, a 2014 American thriller film directed and produced by Jack Heller, and written by Tyler Hisel.

The film stars Kevin Durand, Lukas Haas and Bianca Kajlich and the screenplay for The Trees (later to become Dark Was the Night) was included in the 2009 Hollywood Blacklist (the annual list of the top 100 screenplays).

We have authored this DVD release as part of our on-going partnership with Three Wolves productions. The DVD includes the original trailer and also optional 5.1 surround sound audio.

We were supplied with the HD video assets and layered cover artwork, which Stu was able to use to design the DVD menus and encode the film into files for the build. The final DVD master files were sent to Sony for replication and will be available to buy soon

To find out more about our DVD authoring, duplication and replication services, see our Disc Production page - www.maniacfilms.com/services/disc-production-t-10.html

Below is a synopsis of the film and you can watch a trailer at the top of the page:

'Maiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent, hard-working people but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires. Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) and his deputy (Lukas Haas) struggle to confront their own personal demons while facing down a new breed of raw terror that is possibly older than humanity itself… and much, much hungrier.'
