As ridiculous as it may sounds, I’ve always wanted to die on camera and this past weekend it came to fruition. The poor sod laying on the ground behind the Kia and covered in blood (product placement!) is me. Our core villain in the first story backs over me with her car. Life goal accomplished, now on to the next one!
Well, the big day finally arrived. After a lifetime of waiting and a few false starts, on April 27th, the cameras started rolling on my first feature length film!
“It’s Complicated…”, the first of four stories in our upcoming anthology horror film “Dark Descent Presents: Dr. Saville’s Horror Show” is now officially in production. And it was every bit as magical as I hoped it would be.
I am the screenwriter and producer for the first film and I expect my role to grow as the brand picks up steam. Production for the film will continue in the coming months as we prepare one or two of the stories for some horror film festivals.
This has been an amazing experience so far. I have already finished the second story and am already over halfway through the third. The production team is already starting pre-production on the sequel.
I am very pleased to announce that I will be a special guest at Phoenix FearCon Horror Film Festival and Convention, October 18th, and 19th, at Sun Studios of Arizona. I was previously a a guest at their 2014 event and had a blast!
In just a few short weeks the Dark Descent Presents Facebook page has picked up over 2100 followers. Come join us at https://www.facebook.com/darkdescentpresents to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, here’s another promo lobby card from the behind the scenes footage.
For Dark Descent we are creating a new horror villain called Dr. Saville and I’m extremely lucky enough to be working on creating him.
I’m currently fleshing out his character and figuring out his two M’s. His mannerisms and his motives. This is probably one of the most exciting things I’ve written to date. Creating a villain that is designed to appear in multiple movies and that may pick up traction as a horror icon is nerve-wracking, challenging but incredibly exciting. I’m starting with a blank bloody canvas and building from the ground up. Lots of exciting details will be coming as we forge his persona. This will be something new you haven’t seen before.
