BELOW ZERO                   Running time: 95 min

Inspired by true events, BELOW ZERO is the story of
'Jack the Hack', a once successful screenwriter who
now faces writer's block. Desperate to meet a
career-saving deadline and escape the distractions of
his troubled life, Jack arranges to be locked inside a
meat cooler, with only vegetarian meals and his
imagination to inspire him. As the temperature drops,
the lines between reality and fiction blur, and Jack's
script comes dangerously to life. Will he make the most
important deadline of his career? Or is Jack 'just a
hack'? While writing the script, the actual screenwriter
and producer of BELOW ZERO, Signe Olynyk,
arranged to have herself physically locked in the meat
freezer of an abandoned, remote slaughterhouse.
That's partly how this story developed.
