Poster Exclusive: “DON’T LOOK BACK!”

As the end of summer approaches, so does the release of my next film: DON’T LOOK BACK.

Here’s an exclusive first look at the poster below:

The film is a psychological thriller about Nora Clark (Lucy Griffiths), a prominent children’s book writer, whose life is at a crossroads. After moving back into the house she inherited from her grandmother, Nora comes to grips with the traumatic memories from her childhood, and takes in an inquisitive, seductive new roommate, Peyton (Cassidy Freeman), who is not entirely whom she appears to be…

I was extremely fortunate to work with an amazing cast and crew who are all at the top of their game. Lucy Griffiths (TRUE BLOOD) and Cassidy Freeman (LONGMIRE) star in the film along with Tyler Jacob Moore, Roddy Piper and Kate Burton. Tyler was recently cast in ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME as Prince Hans, a character you may know from Disney’s blockbuster hit FROZEN:

Kate Burton was just nominated for an Emmy Award for her role as Vice President Sally Langston on the show SCANDAL (Good luck, Kate!). And Roddy Piper – a childhood hero of mine, when I knew him as the infamous “Rowdy” – is perhaps best known in the world of cinema for his iconic role in John Carpenter’s cult classic THEY LIVE.

DON’T LOOK BACK is set to hit iTunes, VUDU and other VOD platforms in the beginning of September.

I will have more info soon, but in the meantime…keep a “lookout” for it!

NORTH BY NORTHWEST

In my metafictional satire, THE MIRROR, a version of myself attempts to help the enigmatic lifestreamer “Taylor” realize his dream of recreating scenes from some of his favorite movies.

As the two dreamers embark on a veritable journey back into cinema’s golden age, they attempt to recreate one of the most thrilling and iconic scenes ever to be projected onto the silver screen: Cary Grant running for his life from a crop-dusting biplane in Hitchcock’s NORTH BY NORTHWEST. As far as I know, this scene has never been recreated in its entirety.

In 2008, Vanity Fair organized a photo shoot that involved Seth Rogan inhabiting the role of Grant as he attempted to escape the wrath of the plane.

But this was a mere still from a single shot of the scene.

It was not until Taylor — the one, and the only, @TaleOrTaylor — jumped into the middle of the famous scene and became the target of a shot-for-shot (more or less) reboot that it was fully recreated. He endured 3 full passes, the Boeing Stearman biplane missing him by just a few feet. This is the first time this death-defying scene has been authentically reproduced…and with NO computer-generated effects!

We’ve released the full clip of the scene. Check it out here!

As the master, Alfred Hitchcock, himself once said: “The only way to get rid of my fears is to make films about them.” For a lot more cinematic hijinks, you can watch the entire movie on iTunes:
