Poster design!!

     Since my screenplay, Seekers, has become an official finalist in the Shriekfest Film & Screenplay festival, I need to come up with two posters to promote/generate buzz. 
     This is a non-paying gig.
     Just to give you something to go on, Seekers is a zombie film, so that in itself should get your creative juices flowing.  :)
     I only need two to turn them into 11x17 sizes.  It doesn't have to be grotesque or loaded with blood and guts.  A zombie crawling out of the ground, a hillside background with zombies walking down the hill, etc. Something simple, but eye catching.  I'll add the title and log lines myself.
     So if you can help me out, I will be forever grateful and appreciative.  You can send your pics, art, drawings to my email address.

Calling all artists!

     Do you like to draw? Sketch? Paint?
     I am currently looking for someone who can draw up some sketches or drawing for my zombie screenplay, Seekers.  
     It's a non paying gig, but you will get publicity and promotions from me. 
     If you think you have what it takes to draw some scary, creepy, eerie, zombie-fied sketches then show me what you got.  Nothing is too grotesque or morbid, just no over-the-top-gore.  Remember, it's not gore or blood and guts that sells.  It's the way its presented.
     The best sketches will be hand picked personally by me.  Multiple artists are encouraged because I love to see everyone's interpretation of their take on a zombie!  The scarier the better! 
     Each sketch(up to 4 or 5) will be made into 4"x6" or 5" x 7" postcards for distribution, promotion and publicity.  Yes your name will be on the postcards as the artist!
     So send as many as you like either by e-mail or postal mail. Looking forward to seeing what you can come up with to scare me!  Hehehe.

horror short story

     In the midst of writing a sequel, I'm also working on another short story.  There's no title as of yet, but the story follows a young woman named Cathy, who witnesses her boyfriend Mark's brutal murder at the hands of his mother and father. She goes to the police, but they do not believe her.  After Cathy has one last run in with Mark's parents, killing the mother, she packs a bag and drives herself to her parents remote cabin in the woods, far from civilization.  She thinks she's safe,until a strange elderly woman shows up and begins to show signs that she may be related to her boyfriend's parents.
     Also, I am going to finish another short story I started writing back in October after my weekend in Michigan with my friends.  Had quite a night while we sat around the bonfire.  Let's just say what happened scared us all.  It was perfect to write a story.  Hopefully when that is finished it will give you the willies just as it gave us.
      Will keep you posted on my progress. :)

"Seekers 2" being written!

     While waiting to hear if my first screenplay Seekers will be a semi finalist or a finalist in the Shriekfrest Screenplay and Film competition, I've started writing the sequel.  I'm confident.
     Picking up where the first one ended, the character of Ashlie is now alone and injured.  Along the way she meets four friends who are also making their way to the shelter set up in Chicago by the CDC, but soon discover that the entire city has become over run by the undead.  After being rescued by the military, Ashlie and her four friends are taken to a shelter not far from where they were.  As the days go on, Ashlie discovers that the CDC had set up the shelter where she is taken two years previously and that the zombie outbreak was a planned study go awry.  Now, she must stop them from "animating" more of the undead before they take over the nation and, eventually, the world. 
     The character of Ashlie, as I may have said before, is like the Ripley of the Alien series.  She's tough but also has a soft spot and a heart for mankind.  There really hasn't been many strong female leads lately.  And speaking of Ripley, I have actually introduced a character in Seekers 2 that would be perfect for Sigourney Weaver.  Hehehe.
