Trivia

During editing, the directors would think of inserts shots and close ups that would help boost the emotional impact of each scene. Since they owned the equipment and all of the actors lived nearby, they could often get the shots they wanted within a couple of hours. Cinematographer Mike Simpson would often ride his bike over, light the shot quickly and return home within a few minutes. See more »

Amazing 1st film from two industry up and comers
15 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strings is a great movie that has suspense, romance and action. The film has a very good cast that gives it a professionalism you don't find often in indie movies. Also, the score is just amazing. It really takes the film to another level.

Mark Dennis and Ben Foster did an unbelievable job considering that this is first feature film. I'm excited to see what comes next from the pair.

I'm pretty sure Stings is being show at a wide variety of film festivals around the country and I highly recommend you checking it out if you can. I saw it at the Breckenridge Festival, but I think they have a full list of the showings on their site.
