Promotional flier for 'Distortion'.

On Saturday September 25th at the Sacramento Sci-Fi/Horror Show there will be a special showing of the ‘Distortion’ trailer as well as a scene from the film with an introduction by Deneen Melody. She will be there promoting several projects including the upcoming web series Western X which will be having the world premiere of the first three episodes on Sunday the 26th. Creator Michael Flores did this very awesome promo for it:

Unfortunately I will not be there but if you will be or are in the area do go. I printed up a few copies of a special lobby card featuring Deneen which will be available at her table for free. She is very sweet so say hi and check out all of her other amazing projects.

Some more ‘Distortion’ news is in the works but also check out the blog for my upcoming film ‘Dark Lighthere.

A Lovely Melody

A post long overdo. It’s been a busy couple of weeks but things are getting done. In fact, after this week I will be putting all of my time towards getting ‘Distortion’ done. At the very least get it ready for the Sundance Festival deadline. There is a lot to get done with every aspect. There is more editing to do and even more shooting. A few more b-roll shots still need to be done. Weather has been iffy with a lot of rain lately but I think this weekend might work. Plus the visual effects need to be finalized and of course sound effects and music.

Deneen taking the shortcut.

The last full scene I needed to shoot was done a few weeks ago with actress Deneen Melody. We were fighting the rain and light, although I needed it to be dark, but she was a real trooper. I only wish I had more for her to do to show off how talented she is. While it was strange shooting a scene almost a year later it was great to do it with someone who loves to act. It made it a great experience.

So much left to do and time is slipping away. I will try and post everything I can as I go along even if it’s quick to document the process.
