The first week of AD Out went amazingly well. So grateful to have been a part of this fun project. AD Out is a tennis drama written and created by Troy Akin and directed by me.
I was nervous about this project. I mostly write and direct horror and this was a good opportunity to show that I was capable of directing a completely different genre….plus even though Troy will be launching this on his YouTube Channel, his goal is to pitch it as a TV series, so naturally this has to be the best product!
But everyone brought their A game and everything looks amazing. I really do think we will have something truly amazing and fun! Plus this is the first project I have directed so far that has a sponsor: Head Tennis Gear!
We film again this weekend. Stay tuned for more information on this project!
I want to think Michael Haberfelner for taking the time to interview for his blog (re)Search My Trash for the film I directed LOVE ME NOT for Horror House. The questions were great! It was nice to be able to explain my process with you.
‘In a dating scene where a swipe of the finger determines someone’s worthiness of love, a few hearts are bound to be broken. For Jenny, heartbreak is all to familiar. Used by countless partners for their own personal gains, her heart has been shattered one too many times…but this is Valentine’s Day, Jenny is going to teach them a lesson…because there is only so much a girl can take before she finally just snaps.’
‘I loved the originality and bizarre horror humor of LOVE ME NOT ’– Sally Kirkland, Oscar Nominated and Golden Globe Winning Actress.
The Latin market is the largest movie going audience yet there are very few movies made with strong Latin actors in leading roles. The team at Horror House is looking to change that by promoting diversity in film both behind and in front of the camera.
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
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!
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.
