I have been making short films for a long time but I decided about 5 years ago, along with my Menan Films partners Rich Stiles and Seb Smith, to go for it and produce a low budget horror feature. After a long painstaking process we completed DEAD WOOD in 2007. It was screened at a dozen film festivals and has garnered some great (a few not so great) reviews online. The film has recently been released on DVD in the UK by DNC and will be released by Lions Gate in the US and Canada on July 7th 2009 packed with extra features. You can pre order of course from Amazon.com! The film was shot literally no money and will hopefully inspire film makers like yourself to get out there and do the same.
Now comes the follow up movie, we have a script and will be in Cannes and LA soon looking for funding- if you know anybody please contact me! For more information on Dead Wood goto www.dead-wood.com or www.menanfilms.com.
