University of Tampa graduate screening his 'Invisible Man' movie in Tampa

Now you'll see him and then you won't. A modern-day version of H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man is showing one time only tonight, at Muvico Starlight 20 in Tampa. It's the latest example of how some independent filmmakers without distribution deals beg attention these days, renting a theater auditorium on an off night and calling it a world premiere. The Invisible Man is produced and directed by 2007 University of Tampa graduate Timothy Compton, now working in Los Angeles, and Sean Malone, a former teacher at the college. Both attended the University of Miami's film school. The Kickstarter-funded project was filmed in Colorado, North Carolina, and reportedly Tampa, although you can't tell from the snowbound trailer, available at vimeo.com/22755004. The production is hoping for a Netflix deal. Malone and actor John Hightower (Burn Notice, Covert Ops) will do a Q&A after the movie. A $10 donation is suggested for admission, with a reception to follow. Tickets can be reserved at jlarthouse.com.
