Truly Dreadful Tales: Boris

Here is a fun little horror short I produced - shot and directed by a fellow in Croatia, I wrote it and did the editing and music.

It was a fun experience to see something I wrote shot in another language/country and also to get footage via upload/download so quickly after shoots from halfway around the world.

Blood Creek Woodsman World Theatrical Premiere and Other News

A bunch of stuff going on…

A horror short that I wrote called TRULY DREADFUL TALES: BORIS just finished shooting

…in Croatia...

 …in Croatian.

It's kind of cool, kind of weird. Stuff I wrote was being shot on the other side of the planet and then uploaded/downloaded to me. I am anxious to start cutting it together. Plan is to air it, along with a few other shorts I wrote but were directed by other people, on a new youtube channel once it is done.

BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN World Theatrical Premiere is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014 at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland, Oregon. Very happy to have this project, which I shot and directed from my buddy John Bowker's script back in 2009, finally finished.

Back at the beginning of October DRIFTER kicked off the film festival at the SCARE-A-CON horror convention in New York! We were also nominated for best special effects. We didn't win, but it was still cool to be recognized.

Made some progress on a bunch of ODD NOGGINS fx shots. Still a few things left to do, but it's close.

I posted a slightly longer version of the zombie short, A DAY IN THE PARK, that  I made to contribute to a kickstarter campaign. That campaign had a limit of 5 minutes. Watch the slightly longer version below!

I can't believe the year is almost over. Lots left to do. More news soon!

Mad Monster Party: Shadow Over Seattle

Back at the beginning of the month, I made the trek up to Bellevue, Washington for the Mad Monster Party: Shadow Over Seattle horror convention.

Here's a bunch of pictures!

Hanging out in the atrium of the Bellevue Hyatt until the con opens...

This way...

A giant Mad Monster greeted you when you walked in.

Angus Scrimm's panel Friday night was very entertaining - that guy has tons of great stories.

Holy cow - a Blackula mask!!!

The Something Weird Video table had this snazzy SLIMER prop on display.

My buddy Mike let us crash at his place and even made us breakfast!

Dale gives bacon the thumbs up!

And this weirdness happened, and it was time to head back to the con...

The Fright Night panel was packed, and was good...

Until these tall-haired people sat in front of me!

Barry Bostwick, Little Nell and Patricia Quinn pose for a photo in the bar.

Rowdy Roddy Piper's panel was insane! My friend Rob said it was the best panel he'd ever seen. Roddy was all over the map, and all over the stage. He acted stuff out, he told hilarious stories, he told inappropriate stories, he told sad stories. It was just amazing.

Angus signed a Phantasm poster for me - that's going in the stairway poster gallery for sure!

I have been a PHANTASM phan ever since I sat cross-legged in front of the TV, alone in dark, watching with wonder as it aired on the CBS Late Movie. And now I have received a hug from The Tall Man!!! A few weeks later, my son was watching the horror documentary "Nightmares In Red, White and Blue" in his documentary class and was able to tell his classmates, "I met that guy! He gave me a hug!"

Pretty good coleslaw at a brew pub.

Costume contest featured Dr. Frank N. Furter next to Sasquatch. Of course.

Barry Bostwick and Little Nell introduce the screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

A dancer enhanced the opening credit sequence.

On Sunday, I got my son a Silver Shamrock Skull mask. I'd better watch out on Halloween.

I picked up some cool DVDs, a t-shirt and even a VHS tape of the crazy awful monster movie BOG!!! And then the party was over, and it was time to go home.

Busy Busy Busy

Been a while since I posted, but plenty has been going on. TRULY DREADFUL TALES: JESSICA is on hold for now as Red DeVille was in a car accident and is now recovering. Best wishes to her to get well soon.

No movement on another TDT segment that someone agreed to do. Not sure it will ever happen.

Meanwhile, someone IS shooting for TRULY DREADFUL TALES: BORIS. Shooting is slow so more info once all the footage is delivered and I am editing.

Got a couple of insert shots done for the ODD NOGGINS remake and am planning some cool packages to go with the DVD release. Stay tuned!

Reviewing a DVD master for BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN. No, I'm not kidding. Hope to have more news soon.

A DAY IN THE PARK, my zombie short contribution to the Zombie Map App Kickstarter campaign premiered on August 26 - you can check it out here!

 KISS and DEF LEPPARD were kind enough to play a concert for my birthday and it was SPECTACULAR!!!

 Saw ALICE COOPER and MOTLEY CRUE in July and it was AWESOME!!!!

 Was interviewed by THE SHADOW OVER PORTLAND -

 Was also interviewed by DAILY GRINDHOUSE -

The BIG thing was the PORTLAND PREMIERE OF DRIFTER!!! I'm working on a whole post about that with a bunch of photos. It was a ton of fun! So watch for a few more posts next week...

The Portland, Oregon Premiere for DRIFTER is set for Saturday, August 23 at 4 p.m. at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street, Portland. Admission will be just $5 cash. Cast and crew will be on hand for Q&A after the movie and I'll have a bunch of my DVDs for sale as well!

Actor Bob Olin, who plays the DRIFTER, got a great write up that was a carried by USA TODAY! A nice mention of DRIFTER and even a quote by me! Swell!

DRIFTER got a great review over at Smash or Trash Indie Filmmaking:

Also very cool to get a bit of coverage about the Portland premiere and the limited edition DVD release:

Everyone is probably tired of hearing about DRIFTER over and over again. But fear not! I am determined to finish my next project this summer, so stay tuned for all the sci-fi horror weirdness!
