Back in 2006, I appeared in a very ambitious independent film called (at that time) The Lonely Apocalypse – written and directed by Northwest filmmaker Nicholas J. Hagen.

The film itself, however, was shot over the course of an entire month in and around Southwest Washington and incorporated a dizzying array of stunts, special effects, and locations. Everyone who’s seen the movie under its new title Dark Horizon has been impressed by the tension Hagen evoked – and the high production value he was able to bring on such a small budget.
