I grew up a monster kid. Some of my earliest memories are of hours with Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, and the Creature, all of whom captivated my imagination and set me on a path to where I am today. My journey has led to being a writer (Fangoria, Famous Monsters of FIlmland, Horrorhound), producer (Shout Factory, Anchor Bay, Screenvision, Trancas Films), and filmmaker (YOU CAN’T KILL THE BOGEYMAN, UNZIPPING BODY BAGS, SHIFT). It makes perfect sense for me to be writer and director of ONLY DREAM OF ME.
The idea for ONLY DREAM OF ME was conceived during a late night trip up the foggy mountainside last fall, and right away I knew it would be my next narrative. Simply put, this is the story of a boy and a ghost, about innocence born and lost, and about finding beauty in most unusual places. Relatable for anyone who grew up with their nose buried in movie magazines and monster mythology, ONLY DREAM OF ME is a monster movie from fans, for fans.
In addition to being a stand-alone short, ONLY DREAM OF ME is the first of four segments of an anthology film shooting in stages over the coming months,assembling some of the most exciting up and coming talent in the business. We can’t spoil the names involved just yet, but each entry is going to be from a fresh new voice in the genre, all blended into what will be a daring, exciting and entertaining stew.
The fundraising campaign for ONLY DREAM OF ME is underway now. It is a short 20 day effort, so time is of the essence on it. Plenty of great perks, and even something for the die hard HALLOWEEN fans in there. Campaign can be seen HERE.
(re)Search just interviewed me on the film, too. I share some more details on the concept and how I will be approaching the project. Read all about it HERE.
More details in the coming weeks as we move into production.
