Announcing: Dalton Gang Press – Micropublisher

June 7, 2011

I am proud to announce the launching of DALTON GANG PRESS, the micro-publishing arm of DALTON GANG PRODUCTIONS.

I’m also proud to announce the release of my first novel, DARK MATTER HEART. Now available for KINDLE, NOOK, and Trade Paperback. (note: you do not need to own a kindle or nook to read the ebook. Simply go to either Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble to download the e-reader app for free for your favorite platform: iphone, droid, PC, Mac, etc)

Here’s a little bit about DARK MATTER HEART:

A new town. A new school. A new beginning. Seventeen year-old Cordell Griffin and his mother move from Los Angeles to the Pacific Northwest to deal with his “allergies,” and start a healthier new life. Cor has one goal: To blend in and be invisible. Unfortunately for him, no matter how far he goes, he can’t run away from his secrets. Secrets about who he is. Secrets about why he’s sick. And secrets about why so many people he meets end up dead, drained of blood.

In “Dark Matter Heart”, the origin novel in the “Cor Griffin Bloodsuckers” Young Adult Paranormal Thriller series from filmmaker Nathan Wrann, Cor must uncover the mysteries of his past and conquer the secrets of the present in order to protect the girl of his future, and save himself.

Dark Matter Heart

Dalton Gang Press has also released two short stories: THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS by Nicholas Faraday (my darker, horror pseudonym) and HALFWAY HOUSE by Heidi Fuqua.

What about Dalton Gang Productions and THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER?

Nothing changes. I am still putting together the pieces for The Fall of the House of Usher and when they all come into place we’ll go before the cameras and shoot a damn fine short film. That could be this fall, this winter or next year. There is no expiration date for The Fall of the House of Usher so when we’re ready, we’ll make it.

It takes an army to make a film and it takes time to mount that army. There’s always downtime in between projects. I have decided to use this downtime to work on my writing and embark on this new path.

There’s plenty to look forward to in the future. I’ll be releasing a special edition of DARK MATTER HEART that includes the original screenplay that the novel is based on. Up next is my second novel, EUROPA,

EUROPA - Coming Soon

a sci-fi horror that I wrote with Heidi Fuqua. That should be out by the end of June. Then by the end of the year I’ll be putting out a novelization of my feature film HUNTING SEASON that will be dark, violent and scary as hell. Next year will start with the sequel to DARK MATTER HEART.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

See that video above? That’s my feature film “Burning Inside”. In its entirety. It is now potentially available anywhere on the web where embeddable code can be placed. To see it in its native environment, go to the official Burning Inside site.

Why did I embed it in this blog? Because it represents the ongoing process of getting a film out everywhere in order to find an audience for it.

A few weeks ago I had an hour long conversation with Jason Brubaker from Filmmaking Stuff that he recorded for his podcast. Basically, the theme of the conversation was the struggle to A) Make a truly independent low budget film. And B) Release that film and find an audience for it. This is a battle that seems to get more and more difficult every day. The difficulty for part B exponentially increases due to influence by everything from the economy (how much spending cash your potential audience has) to shopping habits (where does your potential audience buy their entertainment from). And all of these factors are constantly changing. You can listen to the in-depth podcast here. And make sure to check out the rest of Jason’s site and his other podcasts. He’s got a lot of great information.

One of the things that I mention in the podcast is that we’ve had more good reviews of Burning Inside, than units sold. What I would like to do now is list all of the on-line reviews that we’ve had. If you happen to know of a review that isn’t listed below feel free to put it in the comments and I will add it to the list:

BadLit.com “Burning Inside Review”
Brutal as Hell “A Surreal Nightmare You Cannot Escape”
Fear Zone: “Fear Zone’s Final Film Review: Burning Inside”
The Liberal Dead “Burning Inside” also listed as one of their “10 Indie Flicks That Deserve Your Dollar
All Things Horror Online “Burning Inside: A Deeply Penetrating Surreal Nightmare” All Things Horror also screened “Burning Inside” in Boston on January 5th
Planet of Terror “Burning Inside”
Twenty Four Lies Per Second “Cult Review: Burning Inside”
366 Weird Movies “Burning Inside”
Cinesploitation “Burning Inside”

Burning Inside has also been reviewed in print magazines, Shock Cinema, Deadline (Germany) and Fangoria

There’s also an amazing essay at Zouch: “Extended Short Circuit: Nathan Wrann’s ‘Burning Inside“.

You can also find dozens of articles and interviews out there about Burning Inside or Channel Midnight.

All of this adds up to a list that is almost longer than the list of people that bought “Burning Inside” (whether as a DVD, download to own, or streaming).

Burning Inside is available at the following locations for price points ranging from $1.99 – $19.95:

Channel Midnight
Amazon.com Instant Video
Amazon.com DVD
YouTube Rental
iTunes (as an app)
Burning Inside Facebook Page
and now the Burning Inside website

and maybe a few other places around the web, if you find one, let me know.

I’ve also put the word out on all the social networks:
YouTube: Burning Inside trailer has 1,200+ views on my page and 370 views on the Channel Midnight page
Burning Inside Facebook Page has over 244 Likes (admittedly not a lot)

What I’m saying here is that Burning Inside is available and the word is out, yet success in the sales department has not yet found us. Does that mean I roll over and die? No, it means that I continue to find new ways to make it available in ways that might find an audience, hence using dynamoplayer to embed the film right on the Burning Inside website for only $1.99. However, Jason Brubaker has a recent blog post that addresses the main issue with this new technology. Ultimately it’s the overall problem plaguing all independent filmmakers. Findability.

I didn’t make a film with the dream that 14 people would see it, and I doubt you made your film with those hopes as well. If you are you an independent filmmaker and willing to talk about your numbers? Put ’em in the comments and tell me how you’ve found success. Or why you haven’t. Let’s get a real discussion going and not just the fantasy that you can find on most blogs talking about how great this technology is for us.

Antietam Resurfaces

August 8, 2010

Maybe this happens to you too. Something random happens to you and then suddenly, out of the blue, 2 or 3 or 4 more things connected to that one thing happen shortly after.

Here’s an example: As far as I know, before a month ago, I never, in my life, heard the word ‘Antietam’. As detailed in my previous blog, my wife and I and some friends took a day trip to the Antietam Battlefield last month while vacationing in the area. This past Friday my wife was at the hair salon and out of the blue someone says: “There’s this General that was injured at Antietam…” Antietam is not an everyday topic of conversation and is nowhere near as common as, say, Gettysburg in this area. So when someone starts talking about it, and we just visited there a month ago, it’s a pretty unique connection.

To make the connection even more interesting is the subject of the conversation about Antietam. The reason that Antietam came up in conversation is because a woman was in the hair salon earlier in the day with a book that her husband has written. It turns out that her husband Jeffrey Keene, is strongly convinced that he is the reincarnation of General John B. Gordon who fought for the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War and was injured during the Battle of Antietam. Jeffrey Keene has written a book,”Someone Else’s Yesterday“, chronicling his unusual discovery and the evidence of his past life identity. I was handed the book while in the salon and was quickly engrossed in the story. When it was time to leave I had difficulty putting the book down. It is a fascinating story and very well written, I’m hoping to be able to purchase a copy from the author so that I can continue. You can read a synopsis of Jeffrey Keene’s past life identity case here. And check out the video from the TV show “Proof Positive”

I don’t know if it’s just coincidence or if I’m more keyed in to noticing, or if it’s a true “connection” of some sort, but I find these ‘connections’ fascinating. And in the case of Jeffrey Keene, when he did the research he revealed that those random coincidences might not have been so random after all.

The Enemy of Love

August 4, 2010

A few weeks ago I met a young man (in his mid 20’s maybe) that seemed intelligent, educated and tech savvy. He has a skill set that I thought might be useful on our upcoming “The Fall of the House of Usher” short film shoot in December. At the end of our brief, informal, friendly encounter (in a neutral work environment) I suggested he contact me and maybe we’ll work together. A few days later the first e-mail from him arrived (NOTE: All misspellings and typos are exactly as they were sent):

Nice, right? I didn’t realize he had a “company” so I replied:

That’s weird. A “bias that… there is no… homosexual content.” Really? I thought this might be a typo or maybe a miscommunication.

Well that cleared it up. No misunderstanding. No typo. No miscommunication. I had to reply today:

On Aug 4, 2010, at 10:43 PM, Nathan Wrann wrote:

While that is your position I don’t see any opportunity for us to work together. As you stated, It is true that a male and a female are needed to continue the cycle of life, however, at this point, the human race is not in danger of throwing off the balance of the universe due to the lack of natural conception and child births. Human beings are no longer at the mercy of our basest animal instincts. We, as a species on Earth, comfortably living in The United States, have transcended this “law of nature” and no longer need to dedicate our existence to propagation of the species. At this current, microscopic dot on the timeline of the history of the universe, we are free to pursue interests that elevate us above common wild animals. Interests such as art, science, philosophy and love. You claim your company is positive, yet love is the most positive force in our existence, whether that love is between a man and a woman, two women or two men. Your, so-called, “Positive” company would deny someone a positive, joyous, loving relationship? I don’t think it’s a “positive” position to discriminate against someone because they have found love and choose to dedicate their life to a relationship that you disapprove of based on some notion that relationships are only a means to procreate. You are an enemy of love. My wife and I are not planning on having children, which, according to your belief, will throw off the balance of the universe because we are in a relationship and will not be contributing to the continuation of the cycle of life.

If your company only works on projects that you feel promote what you call “the natural laws of life and the universe” then there are a number of other abstract aspects of modern society that you will probably be discriminating against such as: birth control, recreational consensual protected sex, modern medicine, monogamy, equal rights, animal rights, ethics, values, sharing, any form of government, laws, religion, charity and peace. According to your litmus test, the subjects that you approve of and promote include: “survival of the fittest”, heterosexual rape, dominance, male abandonment,  and murder. The list of distasteful subjects could go on and on.

It is clear that you have deluded yourself into thinking that an intolerant mindset is somehow “positive” so this e-mail is not an attempt to change your mind, but rather an explanation of where I stand. It’s unfortunate that you have taken a path of bigotry, because when we talked you seemed to be an intelligent, educated, tech savvy young man that I otherwise would have liked to work with. I have known too many wonderful, positive and productive gays and lesbians and been witness to too many loving, caring, respectful homosexual relationships to remotely consider working with someone that would discriminate against some of my dearest friends.

Maybe, as you make your way through this short life, you’ll realize that only through inclusion, support, respect and love will we truly obtain our balance.

Maybe living in the “liberal” Northeast has made me complacent and I take things like a belief in “equal rights” for granted. But I must admit I was shocked that someone, in this area of the country, working (or trying to) in the “Entertainment Industry” had an anti-gay, discriminatory manifesto (without an obvious or apparent anti-gay agenda). Or maybe I’ve been protected and sheltered because the people that I collaborate with are creative, intelligent, respectful and supportive of the right to live your life how you want and share it with whomever you want.

Today Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled in a “duh decision*” that banning gay marriage (Prop “8”) was unconstitutional. I thought it was an interesting coincidence regarding the timing of the e-mail communication I was in the midst of  so I felt it was appropriate to share.

* A “duh decision” is a decision that seems so clearly logical and correct that it amazes me that it had to be determined in a court of law.

Antietam

July 23, 2010

A few weeks ago I found myself standing in the middle of a picturesque field where 23,000 people were killed, wounded or missing in one day. Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD is the site of the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, September 17th 1862. During the American Civil War  Confederate General Robert E. Lee, emboldened by recent victories, decided to move his Army of Northern Virginia into enemy “Northern” territory. He was met near Antietam Creek in Sharpsburg by Union Army Maj. General George McClellan and approximately 75,000 Union soldiers. McClellan had a perfect plan on paper. Attack Lee’s flanks to spread the Confederate Army out then drive through the weakened center with the bulk of Union Forces. Unfortunately for McClellan the plan wasn’t executed as well as it was written. The Union General was a bit trigger shy and failed to commit all of his forces to the battle, giving Lee opportunity to withstand the onslaught. When all was said and done at the end of the day the 12 square miles of battlefield, with such landmarks as The Dunker Church, Burnside’s Bridge, Bloody Lane and Miller’s Cornfield, were littered with bodies and flowing with blood from both sides.

Standing in that field where so many people died almost 150 years earlier I paused and attempted to put it all into context. Even now, as I sit in my air conditioned house typing on my computer with electric lights illuminating the room, I find it impossible to explain or comprehend the difference between what it is like now with what it was like then. I can write all the words I want but can anyone reading this truly feel, experience or understand what those men and women went through?  All I can do is simply reflect on a few of the remarkable people from that day:

A bugler, Private Johnny Cook, was awarded The Medal of Honor for his actions at Antietam. He was only 15 years old.

Clara Barton arrived on the battlefield around noon and while bullets whizzed overhead gave comfort and aid to wounded, suffering soldiers. One of them was even shot dead while being cradled in her arms. Nearly 20 years later Miss Barton would be the founder and first president of The American Red Cross. No small feat considering this was 40 years before women could even vote.

At only 19 years old Sergeant William McKinley was in charge of the Commissary Department delivering food and coffee to soldiers on the battlefield. He would later become the 25th President of the United States.

As I struggle to put “life in 1862” into context in my own mind I think about other aspects of the era that I have recently had occasion to come across.

Approximately 22 years before Antietam, Edgar Allan Poe published “The Fall of the House of Usher.” He died only nine years later, just 13 years before the battle. Poe was a longtime resident of Baltimore, Maryland which is only 65 miles from the Antietam Battlefield. I wonder, despite the young age of many of the men and women on the battlefield that day, if they were familiar with Poe’s work? Poe creates a morbid, creepy, scary and strange world in his stories. His tales are fiction but the world that he sets them in is not, though it is one that seems very far removed from The American Civil War battles that took place only 65 miles and 20 years from Poe’s home and age.

I have also recently had the opportunity to tour the Thomaston Opera House in Thomaston, CT. The Thomaston Opera House was built in 1884, just 21 years after the battle at Antietam. Walking through this beautiful, decorative and venerable building seems, again, to be a distant world from the one that existed while 23,000 people died or were wounded in the soil of Sharpsburg, MD. As the ghosts of soldiers wandered the, still fresh, scarred, fields of battle, a different variety of ghosts began striding the planks of the Thomaston Opera House.

My capacity to comprehend the hell of Antietam increased only when I learned that it was the first battlefield in U.S. history to have been photographed before the dead were buried. Alexander Gardner took a number of photos of the battlefield just 2 days after the fighting had ceased. His images shocked and appalled viewers around the country, this was the first time the reality of war would seen by folks who had not participated. Until this point visual renderings of war were usually painted, often glorifying battle or at least, by the very nature of the artistic medium, giving a few degrees of separation from the terrible reality of war. Gardner’s photos really hit home. Today, despite the graphic on screen violence we see every day, these photos still pack a punch. It’s interesting to note that Gardner made use of a new photographic technology called stereography. Two lenses take simultaneous photographs and when the pictures are observed through a special viewer the image appears to be in 3-D.

Kickstarting the House of Usher

July 12, 2010

One thing I will never understand is why there is always traffic, for no apparent reason, as soon as I cross state lines into Connecticut when returning home from vacation.

Let me backtrack. This morning I was wrapping up an AWESOME, relaxing weekend I spent with Kim and our friends Heidi and Vince at a remote cottage in the woods in Pennsylvania. If you want to know how the weekend went, you’ll have to read Heidi Fuqua’s poetic accounting of it in the guest book left behind at the Francena Cottage.

Before Kim and I left on our 7 and a half hour drive back to Connecticut I “PRESSED THE BUTTON” and launched the www.Kickstarter.com campaign for my next motion picture project: The Fall of the House of Usher.

The Fall of the House of Usher is a short film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s masterpiece by the same name and will star William Beckett lead singer of the music group The Academy Is... I will be directing the short film this December from a script that I wrote.

Kickstarter is a tool that we will be using to help fund this project. The Fall of the House of Usher is, without a doubt, my most ambitious and challenging project yet and raising independent funds for this project is crucial to being able to make it the way that it deserves to be made. Kickstarter allows us to raise funds in the form of donations from our fans, friends and family. Anybody* can donate funds to our project to help us reach our goal. If we reach our goal we get all of the funds pledged to us, and you get a great reward. If we don’t reach our goal we don’t get any of the funds that were pledged. As you can see, it’s very important that we make that goal, in order to do that we will need help spreading the word to people interested in generously supporting this project, so make sure to tell your friends, parents, siblings, tweeps, fb friends etc etc. basically, tell everyone.

This morning William Beckett announced this project on his blog and had a hugely positive reaction from his fans. Within the comments that immediately started pelting his blog was a bunch of questions that I’ll answer now. If you have more questions, check out the FAQ at Kickstarter or drop a comment here and I’ll answer it.

Q) William [Beckett], will you appear on the film, or will it be only your voice narrating the story, as in Poe’s tale? (by Vanessa Freitas)

A) Although Mr. Beckett’s character is called “The Narrator” in the script, this ‘name’ is simply an identifier of the character in the script based on how the character in Poe’s original tale is often referred to in analysis. The fact is that in Poe’s original short story The Narrator’s name is never given, however the entire horror of the House of Usher is witnessed through his eyes. Rather than create a fake name to identify the character I simply adopted “The Narrator”. To answer your question, in short, William Beckett will be on screen for virtually every scene of the movie. I highly recommend reading the original short story.    

Q) If we don’t have any money to donate and/or a debit/credit card to use to donate money, is there any other way we can be of service? Because this sounds really cool and I would really like to help. (by DJ_Jazzy_J)

A) YES! There is a way that you can help that doesn’t cost anything: TELL EVERYONE THAT YOU KNOW! And encourage them to generously support this project. Copy and paste this link to tweet, blog, e-mail, comment etc: http://kck.st/9OTOhu . Just make sure that you aren’t spamming people.

Q) How will your [William Beckett’s] work on this interfere with the band? Touring, Writing, the album coming out, that kind of thing? (Heidi_S)

A) William Beckett responded: “The project will in no way delay work on Album 4. This is a short film, and while filming will be grueling, it won’t take a long period of time.” I’ll add: I’ve wanted to work with Bill for a long time and this project was a perfect opportunity because we’ll be able to get an incredible, dedicated performance out of Bill without taking away from his work on Album 4.

Q) Are people allowed to come watch filming?

A) Nope. Filmmaking and performing for film is a very intimate, stressful, anxiety inducing process that requires a ton of focus and concentration. Any deviation from whatever comfort zone has been established on-set can be very distracting to the performers and crew that are trying desperately to make something worthwhile. However, donating at the $1,000 and up levels does allow 1 or more short, non-invasive visits to the set.

Q) I’ve maxed out my credit card this month, but I promise you I’ll be donating the first day of August…

A) It’s important to note that your pledge will only be charged against your card when the Campaign is OVER on OCTOBER 1st! So it’s important that you have the funds available when your card is charged in OCTOBER.

Q) I don’t want to be negative – but what happens if we pledge money but it doesn’t make it to the $15,000?

A) If you pledge money and we don’t make the goal then your credit card is not charged and we do not receive any of the money that was pledged.

Q) Will that affect production?

A) I can’t really answer this until October 1st when the Kickstarter campaign ends. If we make the goal then we never need to think about this question. I am confident that we will exceed our goal, however, I know that we will only make it with your support and your help spreading the word. If you’re concerned that we won’t make our goal and you really want to see William Beckett portray this iconic character in a production of The Fall of the House of Usher that truly captures the essence of the original Poe short story, then you have all the motivation in the world to spread the word and get people involved. I’m sure we’ll make it… with your help.
