Film Fest

Deep Down

2023 Austin Spotlight Film Festival



Dir. Zack Scott, Skylar Schanen


Deep Down follows Alice Moran, a sophomore in college returning home to help her kind father and tightly-wound sister go through their recently deceased mother’s possessions. Alice is grieving and looking for release from the world, and she finds it in her old friends who never left town. With her ex Sebastian having his own plans of rekindling their relationship and repressed family drama boiling to the surface, Alice has a lot more to sort through than just her mother’s wardrobe.

The Austin Chronicle

"Once you create a project, you have a lot of momentum and energy to really promote it in the best way possible. To see that project, up on the big screen right after you finish it, is the best feeling in the world. Even if you don't win anything, it's the pride in your project, and knowing that it got into a festival, and knowing that a lot of people sat there and watched it with you."
