Almost Halloween...which means the end of the year is screaming towards me. Time to take stock of where I'm at on projects and see what I can finish up by Dec. 31.
Blood Creek Woodsman - closing in on having all the pick-ups shot. Got stuff finished up at the Markum Inn a couple of weeks ago.
Twisted Fates - Narrator/Wraparound is pretty much edited. Have just a couple of insert shots to shoot and drop in. Found a long-missing tape, which was good, but lots of bad sound that needed to be fixed, which was bad, but was able to run it through filters and through Garageband and got it to where I am happy with it, which is good. Working on sound and music now. Composed a title theme in Garageband a few weeks ago. Will need to adjust one of the segments to jive with the introduction, but shouldn't be too much trouble.
Deadly Premonitions - Need to double check last master from Mike and finish DVD sleeve design.
Still have some fixing to do on Eater, the fun sci-fi/short I did with my son and his friends.
Truly Dreadful Tales - Waiting for footage of 'Crazed' segment from filmmaker in Ohio. Still need to finish music for 'Beetlemaniac' segment. Writing final segment.
And of course Secret Projects #1-99 are all still in various stages of development.

I've written about my love of The Alien Factor and Don Dohler in the past. I just found out that one of Don's frequent actors, Don Leifert, passed away this weekend.
Don Leifert had a William Shatner-esque delivery that I always felt matched the characters he was playing.
I first saw him as Ben Zachary in The Alien Factor. He also had roles in Dohler's Nightbeast and Galaxy Invader and the title role in Fiend. Dohler's 2004 sci-fi movie Crawler is still in post for CGI effects with the Timewarp Films folks and Leifert apparently had a role in it playing a character named...Zachary. Can't wait to check it out.
Until this spring, Leifert was a theater teacher at Towson High School in Towson, Maryland. Judging from the comments on the Don Leifert Appreciation Group Facebook page, his students loved him.
