Horror Festival Testimonial – June 4 2020

 Filmmaker Francis Galluppi (HIGH DESERT HELL)

I wish I could’ve been there to help answer some of the questions but it felt amazing to watch the audience put it together. Especially to hear people’s own interpretation of certain things.

Interview with Filmmaker David Rawlings (SLASHED!)

Really pleased. I was glad to see that audience members really enjoyed it and understood the direction. My favourite moments are when we flashback to the “80s” and it was great to see the audience to get a kick out of that. Thank you for all your kind words.

Director Statement

We all have inner monsters to chase and traumas to deal with. The reason I chose horror as a directorial feature debut genre is because I grew up watching and loving horror films. I came a long way to make one. Flew to Los Angeles, learned Film Directing from the professionals, then developed my screenwriting skills. Worked on film sets as a script supervisor, assistant director. Wrote, directed and produced several short films and documentaries until I felt the confidence to make my bloody first horror film ESCAPE ROOM and now ready to give my 100% to my first feature film SHADOWS IN THE ROOM as soon as I get the greenlight. It’s been a hassle to make this film happen and I am hoping everyone cast & crew who put enormous, time and effort will enjoy the acceptance and awards from film festivals with me as it’s a much needed motivation for all of us on our career paths and to rewake our team spirit.

From screenwriting to fundraising, production to post production it’s been an overwhelming and exhausting experience for me as a director with limited resources however I believe, I finally made a film that surpasses all my previous short films and will earn the recognition it deserves.
