So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye…

Rats, cannibals, dismembered arms and overflowing human organs. Oddly, I’m not referring to a regular Saturday night at Hannibal Lectors.

Wrapping It Up… It ain’t over though!
cut

Four months and counting …. Benjamin and I are satisfied by the completion of “The Music of Erich Zann”. This was the first project facilitated by us wet-nosed producers, and I must say,   we loved every moment of it. From late night phone calls to “it’s pizza time”, we successfully managed to produce a visually appealing short, chilling film and [...]

Now that production has completed we begin a whole new journey, marketing.  We must now build our audience, and our first order of business is taking on the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, Oregon [...]

Calling C’Thulhu…not an easy task!
Without the green screen...first attempt for background

It’s been 2 months now since we made the Call and shoot our film.  I thought that once the project reached the Post Production stage everything will be easier… oh boy, I was so wrong! Apparently, leading with Old Ancient Ones can be really tricky….as also working with a not well lighted green screen. The problem was that our green [...]
