“More Blood!” by Heidi Moore

Two years ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed alongside notable horror icons like Chainsaw Sally and Lloyd Kaufman for Heidi Moore’s documentary. Since it’s release it has garnered multiple laurels from all sorts of film festivals across America. I was given the opportunity to talk at length about some of my favourite subjects, and somehow Heidi made me sound like I know what I was talking about.

Initially an OSI platform exclusive, it’s now free to watch on Youtube! So pop some popcorn, grab a seat, and if you’re feeling squeamish you might want to drag a garbage can over to you as well, because today is a great day to learn about the psychology and evolution of gore in horror movies.

Thanks to one of my favourite little phone apps I get notifications of anniversaries of things I’ve posted on various social media in the past. I also get glimpses into old photographs or notes from past projects.

The funny part is I got one of those while I was sitting here staring at my website and trying to figure out what to post about since it’s been a few weeks since my last blog update.

Okay that’s not even the funny part. The funny part is this time last year I was so busy I forgot to even post this video in the first place. So while the video has been out for a year, this is the first time it’s being premiered here.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it. We had a blast that day for sure! Questions? Comments? Drop them in the comments below!

Project 88: Back to the Future Too

Tags

Speaking of filmmakers doing odd things while trapped in the house, Taylor Morden, director of the documentary film “The Last Blockbuster” sent out a call for fans around the world to get together and recreate, scene for scene, the entirety of Back To The Future 2 using whatever they had around the house within a week. We got in on it, and we happen to have a small dog and a bunch of socks with googly eyes.

The film drops at 5 pm PST tonight. You can follow Project 88 on Facebook, and watch it here if you’re reading this after the release. We had a blast doing it, and I guess technically it’s the first released project from Bad Seed FX and Alcovy Films, so that’s cute.

Anyways, it’s gonna be out soon, and I got a pizza hydrating in the oven, so I gotta get movin’. Enjoy the show!

“Delusional” by Magg Dylan

Few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with the fine folks of Digital Thunderdome (okay technically speaking I am one of the fine folks of Digital Thunderdome) on the new video for the band Magg Dylan. They were a total blast to work with, and the location was amazing. It used to be a men’s prison located in the middle of of Georgia until the end of the 90s, it sat abandoned for a few decades, and now it’s about to become a Haunt Attraction, so that’s pretty cool. Check out our work below!

So if you’re a fan of petite women with giant voices, I recommend you play these guys on your favourite streaming platform.

“Til The Last One Falls” 2015

So… Facebook somehow allowed me to delete all of my profile accounts as admins of my “Art of Krowface” page, so now there’s no ownership of it. And according to their help-desk (which is about as useful as a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory,) I have to prove I own it with five notarized documents and government IDs. So I’m just gonna go ahead and grab all the content, and slowly re-release about five years of content on a regular basis on my self-branded FB page. Which I guess is better, being as the art page had about 600+ followers and my self-branded page has about 5,000.

“Be A Hero” by Vanessa Ionta Wright

Two years ago last weekend I was gifted with the chance to work with  Vanessa Ionta Wright on the set of her PSA “Be A Hero,” which I talked about previously on my blog here. Did you get a chance to see the finished product? It’s still online and available! Check it out after the cut.

Experimenting with Horror

Tags

,

My latest short film is an experiment in two ways. The first, it’s a “resource driven” project where I wrote a script utilizing only what I had available, limiting myself to expecting to have no budget or access to new props or locations. The second part of the experiment is inviting filmmakers to take the script and allowing them to shoot their own version of it.

We’re currently in post-production and will have this out soon. Until then, if you would like to be part of the experiment, please visit the page on my FX site, read up on what I’m doing, and then download the script.

Good luck everyone, you’re gonna need it.

Testing Twitter

As I’m currently struggling with some massive fiasco on Facebook, I’m debating just deleting the whole thing and sticking with Twitter and Instagram. Until then, here’s a throwback from an earlier post from Twitter this last summer. Remember summer? I remember…

Still Catching Up

I am *so* far behind in my updates, but I guess that’s what happens when your house burns down. Good news is I’m back to where I need to be, so now I’m chained to my desk and frantically climbing to the top on my to-do list with the same energy I use to ignore all the clean laundry sitting on my easy chair waiting to be folded.

I’ve already gone ahead and updated my crew resume with the last *five* videos I didn’t have on there yet, so if you want to skip ahead of the line and check them out, go for it. Otherwise expect a few updates over the course of the next few weeks.

In the meantime, here’s one of the latest videos I worked on.
