Smash or Trasher filmmaker Mitch Klein called me and hipped me to a new short movie made with BLENDER software . This is a science fiction short called TEARS OF STEEL. Incredibly well done work with this free software which now supports live action compositing! I urge all low-budget filmmakers to check this out. It is inspiring, and it goes to show what creative people can do with available software.

Wow, it’s been a while since I have done a serious update – but it is up now! I have a new post production article up on what the next possible step is before going to distribution or self distribution; going to a video post house to get a limited number of copies professionally made. Therefore the spotlight falls on a Mid Atlantic firm known as VIDEO LABS. This company has had a LOT of interaction with independent filmmakers. The link for that article is HERE.


Movie Reviewer Judy Furlow Grannas has a new review up for a GOOD movie – ABSENTIA. By all accounts this sounds like a movie everyone is going to want to check out! The link to the review can be found HERE.

“Dangerous Deception” Tales of The Fixer

will be featured as part of this year’s
HorrorFind Weekend Film Festival.
Show Time- 10:00 pm Friday August 31


George Stover Bone Garden

Baltimore actor George Stover kindly provided this candid shot of himself, Tracie Savage (Friday the 13th III) and Ron Millkie (Friday the 13th) on the set of THE BONE GARDEN. Stover plays Officer Ned Taylor.


Director Mike Gutridge  (seen above with actor Paul Kratka) has gotten some great talent – both in front of and behind the camera – together for his latest motion picture. Posted here courtesy of Mr. Gutridge are some behind the scenes photos from the production. Below is the blurb he sent me about the movie. I really urge everyone to check out the fantastic facebook page he has set up. I believe the shooting locations include areas around Baltimore, as well as a lake in Pennsylvania. Check out the cast! Three veterans from the Friday the 13th series, PLUS local celebs George Stover and April “Chainsaw Sally” Monique Burril! I am really looking forward to seeing the final product once completed!

 April Monique Burril

The Bone Garden is a Hitchcockian thriller about how no one is ever what they seem and EVERYONE has something to hide.
“Alice Hardy” (Tracie Savage) suspects her husband “norman” (Paul Kratka), a college history professor of cheating on her. but, there have been a rash of missing persons around campus lately and she also wonders is norman is guilty of murder, too!!
The Bone Garden stars several Friday the 13th vets including Tracie Savage and Paul Kratka (part 3) and Ron Millkie (part one).

Here is the website LINK and the facebook LINK. CHECK IT OUT!

We go into August and I don’t have a whole lot for an update. Seems the Smash or Trash headquarters had to be fumigated for bedbugs (no joke) so I have been spending my spare time basically boxing and bagging everything so Terminex can do their magic. Oof.

Leanna Demo reel

On the brighter side of things, our good friend actress Leanna Chamish has updated her demo reel with some of her recent commercial and movie roles. I urge everyone to check it out  at this LINK.  Her agency rep’s number is listed if you would like to hire this talented actress.


Smash or Trashers Leanna Chamish and Mitch Klein appear on an internationally distributed chess book by author David Rudel. I thought that was pretty awesome that they got that gig. You can learn more about the book HERE.

As far as anything else? Well, once the place gets back in order it will be back to more updates and reviews – plus editing on CRAWLER. So until then, stay tuned…
