Making PARKING LOT

Hi kiddies!  This is my new photography project called PARKING LOT!

This is a personal fear.  Perhaps you have it too?  Being afraid of somebody hiding under your car is the adult equivalent of fearing the monster under your bed.  Dark spaces and exposed ankles.

I wanted this Horror image to be set in bright daylight.  Finding a location for this idea was not easy.  Most businesses would prefer you not stage a murder in their parking lot.  Even a fake one.  In the end, I staged my photo-shoot in a parking lot across the street from 3rd Street Asylum, the haunted house run by my cousins.  The police stopped by only once, and they were very friendly.

The victim was played by my friend and musician Cori Jo Hawkins.

The scary man hiding under the car was played by her husband and filmmaker Trevor Hawkins from Mammoth Media.  Trevor helped me with my short film BLACK LULLABY and is one of the chief collaborators on my upcoming movie project.  Right now he is finishing up his own first movie, a romantic drama called LOTAWANA.

I based Cori’s positioning on Andrew Wyeth’s famous painting CHRISTINA’S WORLD.

Wyeth, Andrew

The amazing SPFX mask was created by legendary creature designer Jordu Schell.

Right now Jordu is running an IndieGoGo campaign for his first short film.  Check it out!  It is sure to have amazing creature FX.

Thank you to Nikki Moreno at Vixen Pin-Up for doing Cori’s hair!

Thank you to Luke for allowing me to borrow his cool car.

Thank you to Chris Hawkins and Nathan Kincaid for all your help getting the car to the location and back.

And thank you to Dawn and Matt Cheek for producing this sick little photo project – I really appreciate it!

See you next time!
