Cannes: Alex Verner to Make Directorial Debut With 'Camera Trap'

108 Media is handling worldwide sales on the "found footage" movie about the hunt for a Snow Leopard in Central Asia.

Wildlife documentarian Alex Verner will make his directorial debut with Camera Trap, a “found footage”-style feature about a British wildlife crew pursuing a rare Amur Snow Leopard in Central Asia.

108 Media has acquired worldwide sales rights and will be showing teaser footage from the film to buyers at the Cannes Film Market.

Camera Trap, which filmed on the Isle of Man and in Nepal, was produced by Jason Newmark (Triangle, Severance, Creep) and Steve Christian (Disappearance of Alice Creed, Chico and Rita, TT3D). In addition to directing, Verner also wrote the screenplay.
