Tomorrow we (Goat Man's Hill and Sick Boy Film, LLC) begin principle photography on our debut genre thriller starring Skye McCole Bartusiak (Firestarter 2, The Boogeyman, 24), Marc Donato (The Final) and scream queen Debbie Rochon. What started out as a tiny, experimental project made for very little money has become...okay, well, we're still a tiny, experimental project with a tiny budget but through friends and friends of friends we were lucky enough to have attracted some talent with more horror cred than we were ever expecting!
Sick Boy is the creation of writer/director Tim Cunningham (Xtracurricular). Production will be entirely on-location in and around the Austin, Texas area, from June 14th to the 29th. Yes, it's not a lot of time, but we plan to be fast and, as with Xtracurricular, absolutely nobody is going to believe what we can pull off with almost nothing. It's going to be tense.
In addition, we'll be posting behind-the-scenes vlog episodes that cover production, post-production and, the actual hard part: marketing and distribution. The intent is to give viewers a peak at the entire process, the good and the bad, for an independent film made with more determination than cash. Our first introductory episode is now up on the Sick Boy youtube.com page:
