I met fellow Oregon filmmaker Henry Weintraub several years ago at a theater we both held screenings at. We had both been making microbudget features and shorts for years. He had long had an idea for a feature called DEMONIZED, a dark comedy set in the late nineties about a demon who possess multiple people, one of them a bullied goth kid.
Time and money are always issues with independent film, and Henry knew that with the scope of his story, it wasn't practical to do the traditional micro-budget way. So he approached me with the idea of doing DEMONIZED as a graphic novel, and I thought it was a great way to go! So Henry did rough storyboards and send dialogue text and I drew it all up and had a great time doing it! Henry's wife Sara painted a great cover for the book, too!
So the artwork is all done and the book layout is nearly complete, and I thought it would be great to open up preorders for a few weeks before it gets printed. Check out the options and check out several PREVIEW PAGES at http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com/demonized.html

Also had a great screening of DRIFTER as a part of the Northwest Comic Fest Film Festival, also in Salem, Oregon. The movie showed in a great big theater and we had a wonderful Q&A afterwards!
The DRIFTER himself, Bob Olin was able to make it for the end of the movie and Q&A!
Did some editing yesterday on both the SCARED TO DEATH and TABITHA shorts. Excited to see them coming together. Also have been working on going through all the footage Joel Wynkoop shot for me for the DIARY OF BLOOD short.
Last week I finished drawing the last page of the DEMONIZED graphic novel. Have been furiously working on computer clean-up, gray tone screens and dialogue balloons. Getting close and I'll put up a big preorder page here soon for it.
Some exciting news on the horizon, but you'll just have to stay tuned for that!

Had a wonderful screening of BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN at the f/Stop Fitzgerald's in Salem, Oregon. Backed screening room, met some very cool folks, sold a few movies and had a great time. Working with them to set up some more screenings in the coming months!
Had a fantastic time at Crypticon Seattle 2015. Have TONS of photos I am going through. Slowly getting my trip diary together.
Have been busy with a lot of "life stuff" as of late, hence the lack of updates, or progress on the Crypticon trip diary. But I have managed to squeeze in a little bit of shooting. Shot all of a horror short up in Washington state back in June. Shot a bit for another short and looking to schedule the rest of it. Also shot some sequences for another Oregon horror filmmaker's project. Also, my music is going to be used in two different upcoming horror anthologies. I'll get some postings up about all this stuff before too long. On top of it all, I have been working on several short scripts I hope to shoot later this summer and fall.
Finally, I have been making good progress on the DEMONIZED graphic novel. I am in the last part of the book and have been having a lot of fun illustrating the crazy things that Henry has going on as the story all comes together. Again, more news specifically on all that in a future post.
So basically, more later…
