Sneak Attack’s goal is to create honest images that explore the various shades & paths of the human experience.
We are inspired by and draw from the styles of the French New Wave period / cinema verite genre which combines naturalistic visual techniques with stylized cinematic devices in editing and cinematography. We also embrace the principals of improvisation in both performance and execution to allow for genuine moments that focus on honesty & relatability. These films adhere to the fusing together of a miscreant, DIY attitude (the adandonement of traditional technique) and the desire to not shy away from depicting what makes all of our hearts beat in an effort to unify story and audience.
A B O U T
After decades as a veteran character actor, Whit Hertford (Raising Hope, Glee, Jurassic Park) together alongside director Ryan Darst formed the incredibly-independent american new wave film entity known as Sneak Attack in 2010. As though they were shot out of a canon, the duo produced four films (affectionately referred to as “the roguemances”) in the blazingly fast span of less than 18 months. All accomplished with what most studio productions allot for purely craft services.
Their trademark voice of improvised dialogue, deft veritae-inspired visual story-telling and precisely assembled ensembles have won over audiences around the country as well as in the UK.
