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.
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!
I wanted to say thank you to my producer Taylor J Martin and to Alina Andrei for putting together this nice press piece with Film Combat Syndicate. Thank you Lee Golden for the great article – he really did his research and I truly appreciate that!
Thank you to everyone for your continued support as we move this project forward. I have a great team and I honored to have their faith and guidance.
