Scott Ian Lewis, frontman for death metal band Carnifex, has written a graphic novel – Death Dreamer – based partially on his experiences working in a mortuary:
‘Troy Graves is no stranger to death. Now that he’s an embalmer at Sunset Hills Mortuary he’s never been closer to it. But behind the closed doors of the prep room all is not right. Bodies seem to appear and disappear mysteriously. And he’s not the only one who’s noticed… Following the horrific death of a City Councilman, Troy finds himself drawn back into a violent existence he’d kill to forget.’
Death Dreamer is being crowdfunded through Indiegogo for release at Comic-International 2018 in San Diego. Details follow.
For several years now, would be filmmakers have taken to posting short films on various sites (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) to get their ideas out there.
Director Jeff Chan has produced a 10-minute short starring Robbie Amell, called Code 8, as proof of concept for a movie (which would also star Stephen Amell) he hopes to shoot later this year. It’s about a young man with powers who has a run in with a militarized police force after committing a petty crime.
