Those of you that have been loyal readers of Top Secret Writers for a while may recall that not too long ago we published a full interview with director Rob Underhill. In that interview we discussed his production of a television series titled “The Carrington Event”.
The Carrington Event focuses on the story of a small town, caught in the whirlwind of a scenario that is becoming more and more realistic as time goes on and as the Earth rolls into the peak of the current solar cycle. In The Carrington Event, a major solar flare wipes out the world’s electrical grid, and pits community against community and neighbor against neighbor, as once-civilized people come to grips in a world that has become uncivilized.
In our interview, Rob and I discussed the inspiration for the series – the actual Carrington Event that took place in 1859. It was the 10th solar cycle since 1755, and it was an unprecedented electromagnetic event, the likes of which would wreak havoc in today’s technological world. In The Carrington Event, Rob and his cast and crew give you a glimpse of what just such a scenario would look like.
The Carrington Event Screening
The screening is set to take place at 7:30 P.M. this Thursday, June 21st at the Living Arts College in Raleigh, North Carolina. From Underhill’s recent public release, the schedule will be a reception at 6:30 PM, the actual screening of the 50 minute movie at 7:30 PM, and then an “after-reception” at a local restaurant known as Humble Pie in Raleigh.
The screening will take place in a 200+ seat, big-screen theater that features digital, high-definition video and a surround-sound audio system. Rob says to expect not only the movie screening, but also some bonus material, and best of all – you get to ask the filmmakers and guests some questions in a Q&A following the screening.
Who will be there? Well, you can definitely expect to see Rob Underhill and Aravind Ragupathi, the two producers, as well as executive producer Brad Christians. You may also spot some of the cast and crew that reportedly will be at the screening as well.
Oh, and sorry guys, I can’t promise that Katie Garfield – the beauty who plays Tracy Carrington – will be there, but why don’t you attend the screening to find out?
Living Arts College is located at 3000 Wakefield Crossing Drive, Raleigh, NC 27614 – and you must RSVP CarringtonEventFilm@gmail.com before you can attend. Seating is limited!
Unfortunately, I can’t attend this screening – which is unfortunately because I was hoping to meet Rob in person as well as the cast members – but if any of you do attend, please be sure to come back here and let us know what you thought of the screening.
