Brian Komendant, casting dir.
Casting "Zugzwang," a MFA thesis film for New York Film Academy to be shot on the Red Epic. Producer states: "Fresh, daring and extremely original. Amazing script. Creative story that will bring you to a time-still. Literally! Professional crew. Definitely a Festival winner. Zugzwang in German means 'obligation to move'. Life and chess are not so different. There is a moment in life where you know you have to make a decision, but the best thing to do would be not to make any move. But... you must. We simply call this 'being screwed.' In chess, they call it 'Zugzwang.'"
