Director Denis Henry Hennelly’s Goodbye World, screening at the L.A. Film Festival this week, is the story of seven estranged college friends who try to build a new world after an anonymous mass text triggers an apocalyptic social collapse.

Below the Line recently spoke with Hennelly, (Rock the Bells, Bold Native) about the film, and how veteran casting director Johanna Colbert helped assemble an ensemble cast that includes Adrian Grenier (Entourage, The Devil Wears Prada), Kerry Bishé, (Argo), Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal), Gaby Hoffman (Crystal Fairy) and rapper Kid Cudi (How to Make it in America).

The director shared how key collaborators – co-writer/producer, Sarah Adina Smith (The Sirens), producer Mary Pat Bentel, cinematographer Jeff Bollman, production designers Katie Byron and Rachael Ferrara, editor Greg O’Bryant, and production sound mixer Josh Bissett – became part of the ensemble while making of the film.

Goodbye World will screen at 9:40 p.m., Thursday, June 20 (99 min.) at the L.A. Film Festival.

Expanding on Below the Line’s popular Directors Series, senior writer/film editor, Mary Ann Skweres, and writer/cameraman, Bob Bayless, go behind the scenes at the L.A. Film Festival (June 13-23) to talk to directors about how their crew helped bring their films to the screen. Below the Line’s L.A. Film Fest Video Director Series is sponsored by Sony and Lightworks owned by EditShare, and produced in association with DreamStar Film & Music.
