With Skypemare and The Summoners (among many other notable short films) having had their world premieres last night, October 14th, at the 13th annual Screamfest Film Festival, we were there to photograph the black carpet. Step inside to check out our photo gallery.
In addition to Skypemare writer, director and producer John Fitzpatrick, stars Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever) and Annika Marks attended the premiere, as did co-star Adam J. Yeend, editor James Pickel, producer Sarah Fitzpatrick, co-producer Ryan Dillon, cinematographer Nicholas Kaat and musical artist Jason Italiano (who lent a track to the film).
Revolving around the character of Allison (Vincent), who, home alone on Halloween night while Skyping with her best friend, Jenna (Marks), witnesses something terrifying unfold on both sides of her computer screen, Skypemare received a thunderous audience response (and we’ll be exclusively hosting the flick here soon so stay tuned).
Also in attendance for the evening was The Summoners co-writer (with Chuck Foster) and director Christian Ackerman along with the film’s producer Brett Annese, star Erin McIntosh, cinematographer Jared Hoy, composer Ken Jacobsen, FX artist Juila Hapney and production assistant Daniel Krone. Produced by Annese and Tony E. Valenzuela, The Summoners additionally stars Trista Robinson (The Human Race) and Wendy McColm as high school girls who join in a secret game of summoning spirits for the thrill of being possessed.
The very efficient flick (it doesn’t contain a second of narrative self-indulgence) went right for the throat, and the Screamfest audience responded with glee.
