Who knew that, out of all the genres of films I love, all the years I’ve dedicated to learning the craft, that the only thing I can apparently make are spooky movies? What started simply as an idea of the visual of an abandoned home with a grossly outdated printer that kept producing cryptic messages has turned into something tangible that I can be proud of. HELP ME essentially put itself together… it was one of the most uniquely organic projects I have ever worked on.
Thank you to Delano Taylor, Kelsey Huckaby and Colton Ferguson for believing in the vision and turning words on a page into characters an audience can connect with. Thank you to David Marrs for always being supportive, and for allowing us to use a location that became the true star of the show. Thank you to Soda Diet and More Eaze for allowing the use of your music… it brought an entirely new degree of engagement to the project. Thank you to Steve Jones for jumping in on the project and earning an upgrade from script supervisor credit to producer credit… you brought some good stuff to the table. Thank you to the Lost River Film Festival for allowing us to submit, and for granting it Honorable Mention status.
And thank you to you, the individual who will hopefully watch it, share it, like it and leave a comment. The project was made for the YouTube faithful, as I have been among your ranks for years now. Here’s to many more coming, and here’s to bigger and better projects in the future.
