Dutch horror debut from Nick Jongerius. Starring  Charlotte Beaumont, Noah Taylor, Patrick Baladi,

Adam Thomas Wright, Fiona Hampton, Tanroh Ishida,  and Bart Klever.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution (KFD) has boarded sales rights to genre-horror The Windmill Massacre ahead of Berlin’s EFM (Feb 11-19).

From debut writer-director Nick Jongerius and producer Daniel Koefoed – both producers on genre-horror Frankenstein’s ArmyThe Windmill Massacre tells the gory tale of a devil-worshipping miller that, legend has it, ground the bones of locals instead of grain. Back from beyond the grave, the miller seeks vengeance on a group of unsuspecting tourists, who share a dark secret.

Filmed in Amsterdam, the English-language feature is in post-production and due for delivery this spring.

Director Nick Jongerius said: “It has been a privilege to shoot an international horror as my feature debut, using the famous Dutch heritage and locations as the backdrop. I have always been fascinated, and scared at the same time, by windmills. I can assure you will look at them differently from now on.”

Michael Chapman, sales and acquisition executive at Kaleidoscope and also executive producer of The Windmill Massacre added:  “We’re thrilled to finally share this project with international buyers. Nick is an exciting new voice in horror and has created something truly special.”

Kaleidoscope’s slate also includes family animation sequel Top Cat Begins, well-received documentary The Seven Five and Gerard Barrett’s Sundance hit Glassland.

CATCHING UP

I spent New Year in Edinburgh and watched the fireworks.  I have also been busy with my GCSE photography work. I got some good photos.  I really enjoy photography and also got a few good shots when I was in New York over Christmas.  One of my favourites is the panoramic view with the obliging seagull!  I enjoyed the Lumiere London event last night and took lots of pictures.

NEW YORK

I have just arrived back from New York today.   I have been there before but it was only for one day.  It was over 4 years ago , April 2011 and I went for a screening with Kiefer Sutherland for a new t.v. series called ‘Touch’ directed by Tim Kring.  I didn’t get the role unfortunately but my mum said we would come back another time to have more of a visit.  Well it took four years but we got there eventually and we had a great time.

Behind these Christmas balls is the building where I went for my audition at that time.  It is the 21st Century Fox building on the Avenue of the Americas and one of the tallest buildings on the block.

 I can remember being very nervous.  I am fifteen years old now so that seems a long time ago now.  The weather was very warm in NY and on Christmas Eve we were eating ice cream.

I have had a great 2015 so really looking forward to 2016.

p.s.  I saw Adrian Pasdar from ‘Heroes’ walking by Times Square, Tim Kring also directed ‘Heroes.’

 

THE SHAMAN – THE MAKING OF

A film has just been released about the making of The Shaman.  Have a look at the link below.

A special clip of the film has been made for me at:-

 Thanks Marco

Untitled

In the dark year 2204, the world has seen 73 years of continuous war. The face of conflict has changed. People kill people but they now rely on giant, intelligent battle machines to fight. Mankind has re-discovered Shamanism and the Generals on both sides use these well-trained spiritual warriors to face the threat of machines.

The full film can be viewed at:

THE SHAMAN CONTINUES

The highly acclaimed, blockbuster-style short film THE SHAMAN premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in 2015. After that it ran successfully at numerous film festivals around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, San Diego and the DragonCon in Atlanta. The trailer turned into a viral sensation with over 4 million views.

Take a look at the short film on the link below.   Rumour has it that a full feature  could be in the pipeline.

THE WINDMILL

After six weeks in three different locations in the Netherlands, I am back home and back to school.  Filming the Windmill was really interesting as, although I have done horror type films before, this one is incredibly gory.  You will need to have a strong stomach for ‘The Windmill’.  Directed by Nick Jongerius

sainou_FB_logo_2_400x400   Young client Adam Thomas Wright has been in the Netherlands shooting the leading role of Curt in new feature film The Windmill.

The Windmill is an English-spoken modern day slasher situated in the Netherlands. The Windmill Massacre will combine all the richness and traditions that the Netherlands has to offer, but then drenches them in blood. The film will reveal a new face of terror. He is called: the Miller. The perception of the Netherlands as a country of green fields of grass, grazing black & white cows, tulip fields, wide open skies – and Windmills – will never be the same again.
