Current mood:busy---“GRIM” PROJECT DETAILS---
After unsuccessful attempts to revive our ailing economy, the US is forced to cut funding to rural, low-population areas of the nation leaving millions to “fend for themselves”. Amid ongoing territorial disputes, Nicholas Grim is forced to witness the brutal murder of his parents by Armed Militant Forces in Texas. Now an adult, Grim vows to avenge his family and uncover their killer’s motives.
“GRIM” is a feature-length thriller in the vein of “Mad Max”. Written, Directed and Shot by Adrian Santiago (Project Black Studios), “GRIM” will be shot in High Definition on weekends beginning Friday, July 31st 2009 and wrapping on Sunday, August 30th 2009 in Joshua, TX (20 minutes south of downtown Fort Worth): This translates to 12 days of dedicated shooting, all comprised of Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in August.
Cold drinks, snacks and meals will be provided on location. Upon completion, ALL actors, extras, crew members plus friends and family will be invited to attend two screening dates at Studio Movie Grill in Arlington (with the awesome 5.1 Stereo Track our Audio Ninja will cook up and in glorious High Definition via DLP Digital Projectors), tentatively set for November. NOTE: All credit earned on this feature film will be eligible for listing at imdb.com, if you have an existing body of work or not, this will add to your publicly-viewed profile.
