BOSPOAT - Best On Set Photo Of All Time: Worth The Wait

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Talk about mood lighting. This intriguing image was taken on the set of the action fantasy Alpha Rift, now in post-production. The scene was shot on location at Holmesburg Prison, just outside Philadelphia. The film, produced by PGA member Dan Lantz, centers on a fanboy who turns into an action hero with the help of a magic helmet. It was the producer himself who captured the moment of what he calls the “dance” between the actor (Aaron Dalla Villa) and the cameraman (Tom MaCoy). Lantz says, “With the smoke and lighting, the crew looked just as magical as the scene we were shooting.”

Lantz wrote the script back in 1994, but says at the time no one wanted to finance a superhero movie. Every couple of years he would revisit the project until eventually the marketplace had grown favorable for original IP in the superhero genre. Finally in 2017, the producer secured financing, and production got underway. “I’d always heard of producers who spent years getting their dream projects off the ground, and now it was our turn,” explains Lantz. He encourages fellow producers to never give up on an idea they believe in, saying, “It may take you 23 years to get a green light, but it will happen.”
