Film Courage: Do you have a writing routine?
Brendan Walsh, Writer/Director: So I have ADD and I really need to have complete silence. I also love to live in chaos. I have three children, I have a business that did commercials when writing this. I have a day job, I have tons of stuff going on. I try to get up around five or six and start writing for a good two or three hours in the morning before the rest of the world wakes up and my phone starts to buzz or my kids wake up and then I do the same thing at night. I will start again at 7:00 p.m. and work until about 12 or 1:00. It’s really like I don’t know how to turn the world off unless the world is usually asleep. That’s how I find time to write. I guess it’s not necessarily my initial style…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
About the movie:
In 2002, a young American couple, Matthew and Naomi, travel to the arctic mountains of Norway. After pulling over during a snowstorm, they wake up trapped in their SUV, buried underneath layers of snow and Ice. As if the stakes aren’t high enough, it is revealed that Naomi is eight months pregnant in their frozen prison. With few resources, a dwindling food supply, and nothing but time, tension, blame, and personal secrets bubble to the surface. Matthew and Naomi realize they must work together to survive in a crippling battle against the elements, hypothermia, disturbing hallucinations, and plunging temperatures reaching as low as -30C. Will they make it out of this alive?
