During my Freshman year in college, I decided to film an attack on a farm house by zombies so I could practice my editing skills. Night Of The Living Dead was the obvious inspiration. Since I knew I was going to use friends in the film, I decided to make it fun for them and less work by turning it into a comedy. I found a deserted farmhouse which we received permission to film in. And "Curse Of The Irate Zombies From Hell and Beyond The Grave Who Stalk People Like You and Me" was born. The horror comedy simply revolved around three construction workers who were ordered to go out and inspect an abandoned house that the company purchased. Little did they know, a serial killer had lived in the house and was buried in the back. The serial killer resurrects along with those whom he murdered - all as flesh eating zombies who would attack the workers trapped in the farm house.
The real owner of the remote farm house, which was located in Andalusia, Illinois, allowed us to do anything we wanted to the property. There was no power in the farm house but the property owner allowed us to run extension cords over to his barn (which had power) so would could actually light the farm house (Both exterior and interior).
Even before Hawk Jones and Noises there were a few films where my role was Producer, Director, Cinematographer, and Editor. This page is a brief look at those through photos and video clips. Some of my very early work. You can also visit the Early Years page on this site to see even more. Too often, filmmakers are hesitate to show their earliest work because it's not their best. But we all start somewhere. This is how I started. I also wanted to post it as a thank you to all of those in front and behind the camera who assisted me during those early years. The USC Films are located on the USC page of this site.
