HALLOWEEN: Federico D’Alessandro’s Horror Movie Remake Pitch Video

Federico D’Alessandro Halloween

Federico D’Alessandro Halloween Remake Pitch Video. The Halloween pitch reel video by Federico D’Alessandro, “head Storyboard Artist and Animatics Supervisor at Marvel Studios”, stars Chadd Stoops and Gina Scoles. The pitch video was used to visually describe his take on Halloween and his vision for the remake he hoped to direct is excellent, better than the last two-thirds of Rob Zombie‘s last Halloween film. D’Alessandro pitched his vision of Halloween before it was given by Platinum Dunes to Zombie.

“Federico D’Alessandro used his skills as an artist and animatics supervisor to create a very polished animatic, alongside some keyframes.” I would love to see this blown up into a full film or at least a solid short film. I found this pitch reel far better than the Kevin Tancharoen pitch reel for The Hunger Games, though that pitch reel is a bit more visual.

Federico D’Alessandro had this to say about his Halloween pitch reel video:

It turned out pretty cool, but unfortunately while I was in the middle of working on it, talks fell through between Platinum Dunes and the Weinsteins…so I missed the boat on that one,” D’Alessandro tells us. “With Halloween being re-released to theaters soon, and October coming up, I’m hoping that readers could get a kick out of seeing a horror themed pitch animatic for a major property.

  • I would rather have seen this version than Rob Zombie’s remake.

    I just got American Horror Story Seas. 1 via Blu-Ray. Have you seen this series?

  • Maybe they will reboot it as this story. That would be cool.

    I saw two episodes on FX. Is it good? They offered me the ability to review AHS on blu-ray but I haven’t said yes yet. I was going to give it to someone else to review.

  • I have watched a couple of episodes so far. I have the word “chaotic” underlined after epis. 1. The directing style is all over the board. It goes from shaky cam’ to zoom-in and zoom-out quickly. Some scenes are introduced and shown for 3 mins’, while others are held for 20 secs. right afterwards. In the first episode, 10 characters were introduced in 40 mins’, so it is a lot to get used to.

    I guess they are using this shooting style to unsettle the viewer, but it seems amateurish to me. Maybe, it will get better over time.

    I can’t recommend it at this point. I will let you know if it turns around, though.

  • Glad I didn’t ask for it.
