Shooting a Feature in One Take with Gavin Michael Booth

Today on the show is one take filmmaker Gavin Michael Booth. Gavin is obsessed with one take movies, music videos and real-time filmmaking in general. His latest film is Last Call. Shot in two true single takes, filmed simultaneously in two different parts of a city, Last Call, is a real-time feature presented in split-screen showcasing both ends of a wrong number phone call that has the potential to save a life. The film’s music was also conducted and recorded live to picture.

Gavin Michael Booth is an award-winning filmmaker hailing from Toronto, Canada. He works as a writer, director, producer and editor. His film THE SCAREHOUSE was distributed by NBC/Universal (USA) and D Films (Canada) (currently available on Amazon Prime & Showtime) with international releasing including the Philippines, UK, Australia, Germany and more. The Scarehouse won Best Feature at the New York City Horror Film Festival. Booth was recently nominated for two videos of the Year awards for Canadian Country Music as well as Director of the Year by Now Magazine.

In October 2015 Booth broke new filmmaking ground teaming up with producer Jason Blum (The Purge, Get Out) to create the world’s first movie broadcast live using Twitter’s Periscope App. BLUMHOUSE’S FIFTEEN was a success with worldwide media coverage.

He is also a co-writer of Sony’s DEAD RUSH, another Canadian produced feature. His short film ARE YOU MY MOMMY is currently on the festival circuit, taking awards home from several fests. Booth has worked with top entertainers in the music industry with music videos and documentary projects for Eminem’s D-12, The Tea Party, SYML, Third Eye Blind, Vanessa Carlton and more. These projects have aired on global television as well as appeared on best-selling DVDs and Enhanced CDs released by major labels.
