To all of our friends worldwide who support HOUSE OF FORBIDDEN SECRETS

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 21, 2013 by forbiddensecretsmovie

A huge Thank You to all of our friends out there who have been working to promote and support this film. It is very appreciated, and it is very important these days…. word of mouth and positive energy mean everything! It really is a great feeling when so many people pull together with so much love and passion and create such an amazing film. We could not do this without you. And you are very important to us. The purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to make some difference that you have lived and to touch people in a positive way. As I said, it is my humble hope that in some way, our film can touch a person, can help a person forget about a crappy day – if someone has had a bad day, a major blowout, a fight with a family member, a teacher, a boyfriend or girlfriend – maybe they put on our film and forgot about stress and trouble and problems for a couple of hours and had some fun – that is my goal.

Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. When you step forward, reach out and help, it makes a world of difference. And all of you who are helping us promote the facebook page and the website and the trailers and everything, it really is growing out there – it really is starting to become an event! Keep up the good work – we need you now more than ever – now is when we release this masterpiece on the world and we need all of you to become our “Street Team” and get the word out, bring more people to the blog, the websites, etc.

There is nothing more awesome than someone who goes out of their way to make life awesome for others. I am truly honored by every person who has taken the time to read these blogs and spread the word about the film – Thank you! “If you care about what you do and work hard at it, there isn’t anything you can’t do if you want to.”
― Jim Henson

The Long and Winding Road – That leads to SUCCESS!

Posted in Director's Log, Production with tags , , , , , , , on August 21, 2013 by forbiddensecretsmovie

Finally finished all of my editing on the film around August 2nd.  Then I had to begin looking around for a third party to help us on our final Dolby 5.1 sound mix.  After some false starts and dead ends, I decided to go with my old friends at Chapman Recording.  I have known Chuck for years and I trust him and his company to treat my baby the way I would treat it…. Got Evan the files right before I left town last week for some film related business in Florida.  I got back Saturday morning, did the always awesome Crypticon Horror Convention all weekend and then got together today with Evan and he showed me what he had so far…. blew my mind.  It its really coming along.  Seems like an eternity in some ways, but also seems like it was only yesterday that I was just starting the editing process.

The Crypticon was a major success for Chazz and the gang as well as for Extreme Entertainment.  Every year it seems we get more solid connections, plus we were able to hang with old friend like Lew Temple and Allan Kayser who starred in House of Forbidden Secrets, but also with some old friends like BIll Moseley, Sid Haig, Doug Jones and others,  We had a blast and I look forward to next year!!!  A big thanks goes out to the whole Extreme core crew who really stepped up and held things together while I was in Florida.

Looks like we will be moving forward soon on a new feature, Dreaming Purple Neon – so it is very important to make sure that “House” is finished to the best of our ability – film festivals are knocking on our door and I am very excited about the film finally being unleashed this Fall.  Our first film festival looks like it may be in Las Vegas – we have been accepted to the PollyGrind Film Fest and it should be a blast!  With Dyanne Thorne and Howard Maurer being so close to Vegas, my hope is to bring them to the fest for a Q&A before or after the screening.

Stay tuned, I’ll be posting more updates soon – as well as a “Look Back” retrospective on the entire shoot… I am so excited that this creation is about to fly into the world!
