Hey, friends -
Here's an update for those interested. Lots of projects in the works right now.
Raymond & Scum
We hope you guys got a chance to check out "There Is No Dana, Only Zuul" on The FuMP and hopefully you dug it (even if you didn't know what movie we were referencing or if you were pissed we didn't include id3 tags.) The new song is an acoustic version of what will probably be a "fatter" song on ALBUM III, which we are still working on. We've got two songs finished, four songs very close and several more in the advanced planning stages. This Saturday, Chris Waffle (from a band I can't recall at the moment) will be bringing his bass and his skills to join us on the "very close" to being finished songs.
The Untitled Comedy Music/Dementia Documentary
I have yet to hear from anyone that attended MarsCon this month to see if anybody got any footage for the documentary. If you did, please let me know. This is the kind of project where I'm collecting footage here and there. It could go on forever...but I hope not.
The Big New Movie
The really big news...so big it requires a press release...is "the new movie." For those paying attention (for whatever reason that may be), you know I directed a very low budget horror flick called Stupid Teenagers Must Die! that somehow got distribution and is probably sitting in the "previously viewed bargain bin" at your local Hollywood Video right now. Well, it's time to make another movie and I think it'll be something the folks that follow the Dementia world here on LiveJournal will enjoy. Why? Cause the whole thing takes place at a con. With a party floor. Sound familiar? Read on:
LAST TIME, THEY WENT AFTER STUPID TEENAGERS…
THIS TIME, THEY’RE GOING AFTER EVERYBODY!
Orange County, CA. - Off Set Pictures, the production company behind 2007’s horror comedy, Stupid Teenagers Must Die!, has announced the development of their next horror film, Everybody Dies at ScaryCon. The film will reunite STMD! director Jeff C. Smith and producer Sara Parrell as well as a majority of the cast. New to the team is producer Jason Marsden, who is currently producing the thriller Locker 13 before cameras start rolling on ScaryCon.
Everybody Dies at ScaryCon centers on a small group of filmmakers that are premiering their zero budget horror movie, Everybody Dies, at a popular horror convention at a hotel in the middle of nowhere. “And, of course, something goes terribly wrong and people start getting hacked to pieces” says Smith, who also wrote the screenplay. When asked how much of the film is autobiographical, Smith simply answers “Some.”
“The exciting part for me on ScaryCon is the cameos we’re lining up. This is a horror convention after all, so we’re gonna fill the place with icons of the genre. If you’ve seen Robert Altman’s The Player, this is the horror movie version of that. We can’t tell you who’s going to be in there just yet as we’re still ironing out the deals, but I think horror fans are going to be very excited once we announce our cast.”
Production dates have not been announced as the producers are still in the process of securing funding. For more information, visit www.offsetpictures.net.
So that's what's going on, LiveJournal friends! I invite you to join the ScaryCon train at all of our online offerings:
