Hey guys, We received some good news recently. As some of you know, I own a small production company and last year we shot our first feature low budget horror film. The film is a docudrama “found footage” ghost investigation movie about a group of actors who want to fake a ghost investigation in an old historical southern plantation home. The good news is we just sold the film and it will be released on DVD in the spring and has been getting some good buzz in the horror film community.

Anyway, my goal was to work in as many bizarre magic effects into the movie as possible to keep it looking real. I did this partly for my own amusement and partly because of the reactions that I got from the actor. Anyway, during the séance scene, we used Outlaw’s Spiritus Magnus, Tim Wisseman’s Dead Ringer and Robert Smith’s Blood Tears. We also used a specially rigged EMF Metter from Mr. Wisseman, a very creepy Tipper Monkey and you can even see a Higley Monkey paw in the background of a scene.

Magician Bryan Blankenship was hired as a magic consultant to help develop some of the on screen effects to include building a rig to make a girl float over a bed. It was a fun project and was the first time I was able to incorporate magic into my production work. Here is a link if anyone wants to check it out further see the trailer.
