About Pushing Twilight

A group of disenchanted twenty-somethings assembles a strange weekly meeting, seeking an outlet for their unfulfilled urges. Daring each other to complete a series of tasks, each participant soon finds themselves going to places – and lengths – they never thought possible. At each gathering, they reveal the stories of their after-hours adventures… But as the tasks become more and more outlandish, and the stakes get higher and higher, the group begins to wonder about the intentions of their mysterious host.

Red Bull and IFC called upon the amateur filmmaking community to pitch us their pilot or trailer for a web series that explored the concept of “after hours.” The winning filmmaker would have the opportunity to work with an industry recognized production company to create his/her very own web series.

Filmmakers were forced to ask what can be done after dark, how do one’s attitudes change, and how are rules and expectations altered when the clock hits a certain hour? Blurred motivation, a secret meeting, and a curious host helped make “Pushing Twilight” the winner of the Red Bull “After Hours” Web Series Challenge.
