Another Road, Another Hunt

Talk about a hiatus, right?  Still, the good news?  A lot has happened!  There's been some ups and downs for Trust Us.  That's OK; that's how it goes.  We were close, we weren't so close, up down, left right, front, back, side, side, diagonal...
So as that continues down the yellow brick road, I have come up with a new, parallel road and a new plan with one of the Trust Us producers, Nicky Akmal.  The plan is to try something smaller, something more attainable with a smaller budget.  A way to just get stuff out there and to further help Trust Us get made.  Maybe it's a web series.  Maybe it's a feature.  We're not sure yet.  My new script is called The Hunter's Anthology, and a lot of work on it has already been done this year as I patiently wait for Trust Us to grow legs.  Well, maybe it's grown legs, but I mean to start sprinting one day.  The one way to do that for a first time feature director?  Easy, by not being a first time feature director anymore.  A web series that could turn to a feature counts, even if it never becomes a feature exactly.  Hey, I'll give them whatever they want.
The Hunter's Anthology is something between the Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt, not just in scare level, but also in concept.  Here's the synopsis on from its official Facebook page:

Six strangers find themselves trapped in a New York City subway by Mac, a mysterious man who claims to be a demon hunter. Insisting one of them is evil, he peeks into their souls discovering five eerie, supernatural tales: a desperate woman goes to a fortune teller, newlyweds discover a creature lurking outside their apartment, a young man visits an insane asylum, bullied twins discover a wish-granting coin, and a man lusting after a co-worker discovers a magic potion shop. It’s then up to Mac to solve the mystery and destroy the demon amongst them.
Sound cool?  Good!  It is, I swear.  Just a really fun mystery/thriller filled with some very different short stories that make up for a nice twist ending.  You know... if I do say so myself.  Did you expect me to say I hate it?  Exactly, so don't judge!

Anyway, a script has been written, a Facebook page has been made, and a very short, very tease-y teaser has been released on youtube.  There's a lot more to come.  The 60 second trailer is coming real, real soon.
