[This post originally contained an embedded video that is no longer available at its source.]

Over the summer, I shot my first feature-length film. I made sure to feature some shots of the city in the trailer. I hope you enjoy it!

Cult auditions June 14 from noon to 3 p.m.

I know it’s short notice to post this here, but the audition scenes are pretty short (1-2 pages) and it really isn’t that intensive of a process. If you are interested in any of the roles, shoot me an email and I’ll send you the location and scene!

Cult – Feature film to be shot in Duluth

Hi, my name is Lance Karasti. I’m currently working on a feature film about an extremist cult that is manipulated by their insane leader into performing a group suicide. Two of the members try to stop it and break down how things got that bad. The film examines many themes, and is a character study of the cult leader.

Silent Ninja – A short film shot in the wilderness of Duluth

This was originally going to be a web-series but I managed to recut everything and make a much more concise and hopefully entertaining short film.

Enjoy!

This is pretty boring, but I love seeing the river in black and white.

Fictional Short Film About Martin Scorsese

My name is Lance Karasti. I have recently returned to Duluth after living in Hollywood for the past 2 years. This was my thesis film. I’m hoping to make a feature film in Duluth, as well as a handful of short films.

The short film is based on a Hollywood rumor about Martin Scorsese. He got the idea to change the color of the blood at the end of “Taxi Driver” in order to get out of an X rating. This film is a fictional version of how he got that idea.

This was shown in the Sound Unseen Film Festival at Zinema 2 and got a great response.
