The thriller was shot, directed, and produced on campus by Full Sail graduates and current students.
Rideshare drivers rarely know much about the person in their backseat. Most nights are forgettable, but feature-length thriller Fox Hunt Drive spins a sinister tale of ridesharing gone wrong. It tells the story of a young rideshare driver whose last passenger of the night puts her in unexpected danger.
The film, directed and executive-produced by Drew Walkup, is debuting at the 2020 Cinequest Film Festival in California. Many of the film's scenes were shot on and around Full Sail's campus, and featured the work of Full Sail students, faculty and staff members.
Sixteen graduates and 11 students participated in filming and editing the movie. Jenn Miller (Course Director, Digital Cinematography) worked as the Production Manager and Mauricio Vega (Lab Specialist) captured the film's twists and turns as a Camera Operator. Dave Chmela (Course Director, Audio Post-Production) stitched the movie's dialogue, sound effects, and music together as a Re-Record Mixer.
Fox Hunt Drive was filmed using locations on Full Sail's campus, including the backlot, staff offices, Building 4D, and campus streets. The school's unique combination of talented students and faculty, professional film equipment, and distinct shooting locations helped the story come alive. It's just one of the many projects that show off the resources and opportunities that make Full Sail a destination for future filmmakers.
