New, Compact DEADLY REVISIONS Teaser Trailer Screens At The New Media Film Festival On June 13th.
A new version of writer/director Gregory Blair’s teaser trailer for the upcoming horror film DEADLY REVISIONS will have its inaugural theatrical screening at the New Media Film Festival on June 13th, 2012 at 1:45 PM.
New Media Film Festival has partnered with FilmBreak.com for this category of entry which has been called the “snipler”, since the 30 second spots are to be snippets of a trailer to act as stepping stones to help get films funded, made, and seen in a longer format. DEADLY REVISIONS's co-producer Roxy Shih and writer/director Gregory Blair decided what to cut from the original trailer to get it the required length and still have it give a clear sense of the story, the genre and what the feature would look and feel like. The result was accepted for screening.
The DEADLY REVISIONS snipler, like the movie, focuses on horror film writer Grafton Torn who is played by Bill Oberst, Jr., an international sensation who was crowned “King of Horror” earlier this year by Erebus Horror and is also the human monster of the recently Emmy nominated “Take This Lollipop”. Bill perfectly embodies the tormented Grafton for whom hypnotherapy and nightmares reveal memories that might or might not be real…and that might or might not be deadly.
In the snipler (and the film) Grafton is a man haunted by terrifying images that may or may not be lost memories. Filled with classic horror images, the trailer fulfills the promise Blair has put forth that the film is a valentine to the genre: hatchets, bloody knives, guns, creepy shadows and more flash across the screen in a phantasmagoria. Clever metaphoric images are juxtaposed to augment the mystery: a finger furiously hits the “delete” button on a computer in between shots of bodies being dragged across a floor and bloody knives being washed in a kitchen sink. One question becomes clear: has Grafton deleted parts of his life for real?
The producers decided to let a percentage of the film be fan-funded because horror fans are realizing that the big studios can often churn out unsatisfying work in the genre. Other financing for DEADLY REVISIONS comes from corporate sponsors, angels and investors...all of which the producers are continually seeking to enhance the budget for each phase of the process, so the exposure that the New Media Film Festival offers is perfect for reaching new people and generating more interest.
DEADLY REVISIONS begins shooting this August. But folks who attend the New Media Film Festival on June 13th will have a glorious—if brief—sneak peek.
