Stalk

My next film Stalk, directed for Horror House Media is the first film written specifically by my friend and writing partner Brantley J. Brown for their YouTube channel.

This is a fun film about a stalker played by Tyler Gallant who stalks a young lady Vanessa, played by Kara Schaaf, as she walks home alone from a party. This was such a blast to direct…and I am so grateful that my friend Richard Trejo jumped on board to be our Director of Photography. He brought on his friend Justin Chamberlain to help and the two of them were phenomenal.

Brantley designed the mask – which is creepy (can’t wait to show you all) – and did great blood effects on set. I was even grateful to my nephew Majd who came to hang out on set and help. He even did the slate for us! Thank you Majd.

I really this is a great follow up film to Soundbite, the first film I directed for Horror House and I really cannot wait to show you the final product. I am fully confidant that you will enjoy this film!

Soundbite on FearScale

Thank you FearScale for the awesome review of my film Soundbite.

This is amazing, they take a subject, hook them up to a heart monitor and check their heart rate while watching a film – in this case, the film was Soundbite.

So grateful to Gruesome Hertzogg and Lil Gru for doing a review of my first film Ax.  They just finished a great review of my recent film Soundbite earlier this month, giving us 9 out of 10 stars. Ax they gave 8 out of 10 stars.

If I was on Star Search right now, I would probably be in the lead! #JustSaying

Nightmarish Conjurings Reviews Soundbite

I want to start off by saying that we have received so many amazing reviews, especially from my cousin Daryl, who is a horror vlogger – he did a fun video review of the film. You can check that out here:  MrMeatHook

But yesterday – November 15, 2018 – we received an amazing review of Soundbite from the horror website Nightmarish Conjurings, hosted by Shannon McGrew. The review was written by Juliann Stipidis and it is by far one of the best reviews we have received. It was very thorough and complete and I want to thank Juliann and Shannon and Nightmarish Conjurings for taking the time to watch and review our fun 4 minute horror short!

Pukem’Up Podcast

On October 31, 2018, Horror House released the short horror film I directed called Soundbite. On November 3, 2018 (Saturday), the Pukem’Up Podcast did an amazing review of the film.rea

I am grateful when anyone takes the time to read and review any of my films.

Thank you Gruesome Hertzogg and Lil Gru for the amazing review.

Filming Soundbite

On September 21, 2018 I directed the promo for the feature film Soundbite. It serves as both a promo for the feature film as well as material for the new online digital short form horror platform: Horror House Media, under Supreme Minds Entertainment..

Soundbite is a story that is written by myself and my writing partner Brantley J. Brown and it was the first piece filmed for Horror House. It was an amazing experience. Ray McCann assembled a great team of filmmakers, which included our director of photography Doug Freirich, Gaffer/Grip Calisto Thompson, and BlumHouse special effects guru Zack Edwards. Together we created a fun, low-key, laid back and effective ensemble. I could not have asked for a better team of people. We were very small but we moved fast and efficiently.

I also wanted to say thank you to our actress Taylor Murphy-Sinclair, who came to play the basic white bitch in a horror film who dies! And she was phenomenal at dying as well. She came to set ready to work and delivered 150 percent!

I am beyond grateful to everyone who was with us yesterday, including Zariah Suggs who allowed us the use of her apartment for the afternoon as it was clearly the PERFECT location for our film. Everyone made my job as a director so easy and I appreciate their enthusiasm and expertise – it really made our project that much better because of them.

I cannot wait to show you the final product. Don’t forget to follow Horror House Media on YouTube and Instagram and Twitter.

Black Apple Talent

Today, two great things happened. It is my 12 year anniversary in the film industry and I signed up with the Black Apple Talent Agency.

It is true. Twelve years ago today I was working for a non-profit organization. I had finally hit my limit with working for other people and I knew I was destined for bigger things. So with no real plan in place,  I walked into Human Resources and quit….and then somehow, by taking that leap of faith, things just start moving. I booked a film right away, was on set four days later – and then I just never stopped. Never gave up. Even when we hit the writer’s strike and the recession. Through it all – all the ups and all of the downs (and trust me there have been many) – the one thing that has remained consistent is my passion and my desire to never give up living my dream.

And now, as of today, I officially have an agent. I am repped by Sarah Yapelli at Black Apple Talent. I am definitely excited to move my career forward and to see what the next 12 years have in store!

Horror House Media

Horror House Media

So for 2018 Ray McCann and I were talking about creating a new digital platform for short horror form content. I thought it would be a great idea for him to have digital content to produce and for which I could direct. So I reached out to my writing partner Brantley J. Brown and asked him to start writing short scripts that were creepy/scary and simple to shoot.  With that, Horror House was born.

So now we begin the shooting process. Stay tuned as we are launching Halloween 2018. Feel free to reach out to use and to follow us on the social media platforms. Help us generate the buzz. We want to rally the horror community.
