THE CIRCLE - a Supernatural Horror Short
      #167866 - 07/09/12 12:01 PM

Hello everyone! Sorry, I haven't been around lately. I've been busy lately in pre-production for my upcoming supernatural horror short titled THE CIRCLE. I will be giving updates on the project and providing links to our website, crowdfunding page, etc. Our crowdfunding campaign will include copies of the short film on DVD, plus T-shirts/Hoodies, signed Posters, Stickers, (and possibly signed copies of my short script with any particular notes I may have written on it during filming).

Today, I have just announced my lead actress via Facebook:

"After going through 1000 online actress submissions (via Headshots, Demo Reels, and Resumes), plus one Casting Session & one Callback Casting Session, I am pleased to announce the Lead Actress for my upcoming supernatural horror short THE CIRCLE!

Her name is KELLY RYAN! Out of all the great actresses my Producer Jason Hampton & I had seen, she was one of two who literally made the hair on my arms stand-up and she had me physically shaking with her intense performance! Next, begins the search for our child actor to play her young son.

Here's Kelly Ryan's imdb links to find out more about her and check out her reel, etc"
:

imdb: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0752656/
imdbPro: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/name/nm0752656/
FB fan page: https://www.facebook.com/KellyRyanActor
Twitter: https://twitter.com/itskellyryan





THE CIRCLE centers on a family of three (Mother, Father, Son) trying to protect themselves from evil supernatural forces wanting to possess them, especially the young Son. Their only salvation is to stay within a circle drawn on the living room floor, or so it seems.

Going for a POLTERGEIST meets THE SHINING vibe.

Right now, we are preparing for a teaser trailer we intend to use to raise funds for THE CIRCLE, via IndieGoGo. Therefore, we are casting for the short now. We need the actors' image to be shown strictly within a "family portrait" in the trailer.

We already have genre screenwriter Sean Keller (Dario Argento's GIALLO) cast as "The Father" and character actor Ruben Pla (James Wan's INSIDIOUS) has a small role, playing a psychiatrist.

Thanks!

My previous and somewhat experimental supernatural horror short film from 2007, titled (spek.ter) managed to get into a number of genre festivals around the world, in spite of the graphic non-sexual female nudity in it (the story revolved around an Erotic Goth Model aka a Suicide Girl type being terrified in her home on one fateful evening from supernatural events, and I had two now-former SG model friends as my leads - not trained actresses. That short has a MULHOLLAND DRIVE meets THE GRUDGE vibe, and a slight nod to the giallo genre).

If possible, I hope to have (spek.ter) uploaded to THE CIRCLE website (with age verification, of course). We'll see.

THE CIRCLEUpdate: Had a great pre-production meeting yesterday with Jason Hampton & Debbi Anderson (my take-no-prisoners: producer & line producer, respectively), then secured my audition date/time slot & room, and booked a number of child actors (via their parents) for said upcoming auditions. Now I wanna watch a movie, but I still have more work to do.

THE CIRCLE Update: My producer Jason Hampton & I just completed our final Casting Session, this time auditioning young child actors to play the co-lead "Son". With the exception of one out-of-state child & parent we have to interview via Skype, I believe I have my final decision already made. But we'll see! STAY TUNED!!!!

THE CIRCLE Update: I'm proud to announce that our lead roles are now fully cast. Our latest addition to our cinematic family is a very talented, bright 7 year old child actor named JACK RYAN SHEPHERD! I wonder if his real parents are LOST & TOM CLANCY fans?

I TRULY LUCKED OUT with
Jack. He and his older brother Dylan are very trained, taking 3 different kinds of acting classes each week, including improvisation. At age 6, Jack even won a monologue competition against older kid actors with ages ranging from 7 - 19!

Now the next phase of pre-production begins! Preparing for our upcoming Teaser Trailer film shoot!
