NH Filmmaker Announces First Animated Short
New Hampshire filmmaker Tim Morgan excitedly announces his first cartoon!
A lifelong animation fan, Morgan partnered with grad school colleague Chris Parent to write the script. “I’m excited about this movie,” says Morgan, “this is my first cartoon and it was a lot of fun to pull together.”
Morgan took on the roles of producing, directing, animating, and scoring the film. “This is a lot of work,” Morgan says, “but it’s fun work.” Morgan expects to spend roughly a month fine-tuning the animation before shipping the film to film festivals accepting shorts and animation.
Featuring the vocal talents of Miranda Evans (Chilling Visions: 5 Visions of Fear,Hurricane Chasers), Sophia Cacciola (Blood of the Tribades, Ten), and Kimberley Miller (Lungs, The Realm), the short follows three coeds spending a night in a haunted house as their initiation rite. The night takes an ominous turn when a masked killer shows up, wrecking havoc among the group.
In the Dark will make film festival rounds in 2016, with the public release on Morgan’s YouTube channel scheduled for October 31, 2016.
Morgan is an independent filmmaker, writer and animator based in New Hampshire. He is the author of The Trip, a novel that follows three teens on a cross-country bicycle trip that find themselves caught in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. He has also produced a number of short films, including My Dreamgirl Was a Vampire.
