Another Year Bites The Dust

I know, I'm such a slacker when it comes to updating my blog. Truth be told, there hasn't been anything going on that others would find exciting... well, unless hearing all about the tedious details of post-production does it for you.

Currently I'm building a bunch of weapons for a film called 'Hungryland" which shoots in January.

Some of my Wolf Pack buddies and I have come up with a short project that I'll be directing in February. With any luck, Predatory Moon will be out of post by then and we'll run the two films together.

Stay tuned...

Just got back from the "Sitter" premiere. In a word: FUN!
(And no, I'm not just saying that because Duckie and I worked effects for it.)

It's a movie-within-a-movie deal, and I think it did a wonderful job while doing two completely different styles.

Seriously, if you are a fan of cheesy 70s horror flicks (you know, the ones that were often found on MST3K), you'll love this film for the dinosaur half. If you like dark, creepy, and disturbing, you'll love the babysitter half.

They have a matinee showing at the Enzian in Orlando on October 18th.

Goofing off

The B-Roll crew of Predatory Moon had way too much fun when a tortoise appeared on set.

Updated Reel

I generally have a hard time getting footage for this on newer projects, but some producers were nice enough to send me some clips to add for updating my reel a bit.

Dangerous People Screening in Florida

Screening on April 25th in Spring Hill, Florida. See Event Information.

I'm really proud of my work in this film, particularly since the director convinced me to do something F/X-wise that I'd previously sworn never to do. This film is definitely not for the kiddies or the easily-offended.

2014 Body Count

Assuming that I'm not going to be called out on a last-minute job within the next five hours, I can safely say that my Body Count this year came to an even 50.

It's a long-standing tradition of mine to keep track of how many people I've maimed/killed for a film or theatre project each year.  The rules are simple... I have to have had some direct hands-on involvement in it, whether it's actually being on set and working my magic or having built one of the key components for the effect used on set in my absence (like a special weapon, gag, body part prop, etc...) I can't count re-shoots.  And we decided early this year that zombies do in fact count as "kills". (There was a little debate as to whether they were already dead or not.)

Highest Casualties award goes to "Harbinger", a zombie short.

Most Unique Presentation award goes to Sitter, a feature that should be released next year.

Most Unusual Execution Method award goes to One Night of Fear, another feature now in post.

More Death Awaits...

Duckie and I are packing up our gear to spend a week on location with the feature film One Night of Fear.

This should be our last on-set gig for 2014, and we've got a few interesting things brewing for next year too.
