THE REPLICA RAID II // production

THE REPLICA RAID II short film went into production on Sunday, May 20th, 2018, and everything was going on schedule until the infamous WNC summer rain interrupted the afternoon. Despite the setback, the sequel to my 2017 experimental project THE REPLICA RAID took some big steps towards actualization. We have a second day of production set for July where we will create the final elements.

The day would not have been a success without my excellent crew, particularly Thomas Goddard (Dir. of Photography), Cat Wityk (Line Producer), Madeleine Richardson (1st AD), Brittany Jackson (1st AC), Braethun Bharathae-Lane (Sound), Ethan Saut (Stunt Driver), Haley Martin (Location Manager), Betsabe Fregoso Lee and Joey Lee with Peak of the Mountain Productions (Drone Operators), and Production Assistants: Daniel Ballard, Erich Reinhard, and Garin Wilson of Wilson’s Productions who captured the amazing behind-the-scenes photos below.

Be on the lookout for more about THE REPLICA RAID II over the next few months, and you never know…maybe we’ll see THE REPLICA RAID III sometime in 2019.

CAT FLY HALLOWEEN 2017

Cat Fly Halloween was held on Friday, October 13th at UpCountry Brewing in West Asheville, North Carolina. The event sold out days in advance, and was a wonderful follow up to last spring’s inaugural Cat Fly Indie Film Festival, which was founded and curated by Brittany Jackson, Madeleine Richardson, and Cat Wityk. UpCountry Brewing hosted the screening in their tasting room, and provided a special craft beer for the event, the Cat Fly Witches Brew, a blonde ale infused with cinnamon.

One of the films that I recently produced, AS ONE FLESH, played with an array of other horror and thriller shorts from across North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, and the Southeast region. Additional cast and crew also attended, such as writer and director Joe Naylor, cinematographer Madeleine Richardson, lead actor Jeff Alexander, supporting actors Franklin Lovingood and James Martin, soundtrack composer and sound engineer Tony Mozz, lighting tech Brittany Jackson, editor Thomas Goddard, and makeup artist Ashton Helton, just to name a few, many of whom were also volunteers or programming staff for Cat Fly. I couldn’t have been more excited to share the night with such an awesome gathering of filmmakers.
