Haemophobia is nearing completion... I've been entrenched in the stages of post production alongside editor, Todd Allen Johnson. The process of editing is tedious to say the least, but still incredibly rewarding and educational. Since this was my first live action film I've had to deal with production complexities I never faced in animation. I've learned an incredible amount about how to make a film from just watching and rewatching what we did and didn't cover on Haemophobia. Every line, every move, every scene is ingrained in my mind at this point. It drives me crazy... but it's all fun! It's the life I chose. 

Now while Haemophobia is still weeks away from being finished and released (somehow) I've just wrapped up my NEXT script, Toxic Man. Oof... 

Toxic Man sees me once again taking a spin on pseudo-Cronenbergian ground in a surreal thriller concerning a man who must confront his rapidly worsening illness. This short borrows imagery and concepts from films like Akira, Videodrome, Scanners, Eraserhead, Pi, and Tetsuo the Iron Man. I figure if Haemophobia is a "female" film, Toxic Man is its "male" counterpart. Seriously though, I should do something that's NOT body horror/sci fi soon.... Which brings me to the next shizzzz...

I will be adapting Hel Unbound as a proof of concept short called "Attack of the Necro Nazis" before making the feature length version. I'm considering filming Toxic Man and Attack of the Necro Nazis back to back, I'm just scared my colleagues will look at me in horror and preemptive exhaustion at the notion. We shall see. I hope to launch a GoFundMe campaign for Toxic Man over the holidays with a $5-6000 budget in mind.

May your October be... October-ey...
