National Lampoon's Summer Slaycation

So it looks like because of some financial and family issues I will not be attending a con at St, Louis this year.  This sucks double because I will be missing the Wicked Pixel premiere of RATLINE.

Also as many of you know a tornado decimated most of Joplin, Missouri.  So my friend, John Short, a citizen of the city, who I hired as my writer, is gonna be out of commission for quite some time.

Yet for very dark cloud there is a silver lining.  Joe Sherlock, who I consider one of my greatest pals, has hired me to direct a short film called CRAZED for his upcoming horror anthology TRULY DREADFUL TALES.  It's a gig that I could not pass up.  I have the script in my claws and it's solid horror through and through.  So for the rest of the month I will be shooting the short film.  I am super excited about this project.  It's a great opportunity.

At the moment I am recruiting actresses, building props, and doing script break downs, and with a bit of luck I will start shooting this weekend.

In the meantime here is a sneak peek at a make-up test I did with Photoshop.  For obvious reasons you won't get the full pic.  You gotta buy the DVD for the gore, son.

More pics and tales to come!

Good news and bad news. Sorry you'll miss the con, but very cool you'll get to work with Dr. Squid!
