Directed by Andrew Patterson, The Vast of Night centers on a radio DJ named Everett (Jake Horowitz), who investigates the origin of a strange radio frequency that is affecting their New Mexico town. Sierra McCormick co-stars as Fay, a switchboard operator and friend of Everett who first discovers this weird bit of audio.
Horowitz had nothing but praise for Patterson, a filmmaker whose career should see a marked uptick thanks to the heaps of praise that has given The Vast of Night a ton of momenum.
“His belief that different influences will come together and different rhythms can work in the same movie if you follow the story,” said Horowitz. “And I love that about the script that there is really this fast banter followed by long sequences to a much slower scene. His faith in that variety and rhythm and storytelling just makes him just so versatile. He’s such an interesting filmmaker to watch.”
