It was real treat to see the World Premiere of "Pure" at the Calgary International Film Festival over the weekend. Jim Donovan, the director, as well as Robert Crooks, one of the cast, were in attendance. "Pure" was shot on HD, using the Panasonic 24p camera and after hearing this I think I'm sold on it (I've wanted one since they came out!).
The film looked great, sounded great and had some great acting. Laura Jordan, the lead actress, should definitely be a huge star soon. The music, which was obviously so important to the film, is mostly (all?) techno-club music from Montreal - anyone from there will definitely recognize the sound. A lot of great effects and hard work made this film look much more expensive the the <$1M apparently spent on it.
