We are currently developing this world into a series so there's lots more to come!
Last week, during a one-day shoot in Woodland Park, NJ, we shot a new horror short film called Body Image. This is a different kind of film for me: very short runtime (approx. 2 minutes), one location, one actor, and no dialogue.
We had a great cast and crew! We worked with a skeleton crew for this small shoot and everyone worked so well as a team to cover the many roles needed.
A big thank you to each of our cast and crew for their dedication, hard work, and artistry -- and a special shout-out to our actor Jocelyn Vammer and FX makeup artist Ashley Thomas for working with me to create Abby, our single character in Body Image.
During the last week of March, we shot The End of Mara and had an amazing shoot!
Over four days, we shot in Manhattan, Brooklyn and New Jersey. In the woods, in an SRO, and at Riverside Park. And it seems we spent a lot of time shooting in the back of a truck.
We were filmmaking carnies: Setting up our tents, putting on a show, then packing it up and moving on to the next location.
We had a rockstar cast and crew who weren't dismayed by cold windy days, set crashers (we luv ya, Jukebox!), and a junkyard dog with a heart of gold. Thank you to each of our cast and crew for your dedication, hard work, and artistry.
And thank you for your continued support!
Below are the details, including a link to the other panelists' bios.

The time has come to finish up my Resurrection Trilogy of short films! The final film will be The End of Mara and it's slated for release in 2015.
The End of Mara is the story of a woman who helps her husband break free of a curse that’s brought him back to life and trapped him on Manhattan Island. This film, as with the last two, will be stand-alone and character-focused.
We're just getting rolling with this project and are in the script development stage now. We have our key crew for production and post-production already lined up - the same collaborators we created the first two films with - so we will truly be keeping the films all in the same world.
In order to focus on making this last film the best it can be, I'm taking a hiatus from my Script magazine column for the next few months to put everything I have into this project.
It's going to be an amazing ride!
Follow along via Twitter at my personal account or our production company's account, or on Facebook at The End of Mara page. I will also send out periodic updates through my newsletter, which is probably the best way to stay in the loop.
Thanks for continuing with me on this journey and I hope to share lots more with you soon!
It was an amazing festival overall with a Black Carpet event on opening night, five blocks of horror, sci-fi and thriller films screening throughout the weekend, and an Awards Gala (with Zombie Karaoke!) on the final day.
Festival Director Florence Touliatos is an absolutely amazing host and we were thrilled to be a part of this very cool, up-and-coming festival.
Je t'aime Montréal et Mascara & Popcorn!
