Two weeks ago we wrapped production on the third and final story in Dr. Saville’s Horror Show. Yesterday I finished the first draft of the wraparound script with the goal of starting filming in early February.
We are currently working on a prequel comic book series and I finished the second draft of the first issue last week. Once we lock the script down we can get it to our artist and I can finish up the final three issues.
Speaking of comic books, I’m in the process of drafting out a 12 issue prequel story to Blade of the S.A.M.U.R.A.I. It’s been really exciting getting back to writing for these characters.
I have lots coming down the pipeline next year, and 2020 will see me busier than ever with my writing. Two screenplays, two comics and two novels. Now, if I can only remember to keep my blog updated. Maybe I can even get some more subscribers!
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.
Wow, where do I start? What an insane couple of months this has been. As I continue to work on various screenplays, the production schedule has altered slightly. So, with that I’m very pleased to announce that production has commenced on my new movie “Dark Descent Presents: Dr. Saville’s Horror Show”.
“Dr. Saville’s Horror Show” is a horror anthology series and volume 1 should be released by the end of the year. It will be a film of four stories hosted by the vile and sadistic Dr. Saville. I’ve written the script to the first story that starts shooting this coming weekend. I’ve turned over the first draft of the second story and am currently working on the third story. Writing should be completed by June, then it’s back to the previous horror script I was wrapping up, which may go into production next or if this movie does well, a followup will be fast-tracked.
This is it. This what I have wanted for years and years and years. And after a few mis-starts, misfires tears and cursing, I’ve finally made it. I am lucky to be working with an amazing director and production crew, and with that, here is the official teaser for the first story in “Dark Descent Presents: Dr. Saville’s Horror Show”.
