Dark Horizon Is Now On DVD

Heya Folks…

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.

My part was pretty small – I only had two shoot days on the project. 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.

FMYI (for my innovation) organizes customers’ video and film production, makes “A New Day” video of their own

With today’s tighter budgets and people working from dispersed locations production has become even more difficult.
