Great news, horror fans! After a longer than planned development slowed down by a limited budget and a global pandemic that made shooting a challenge with social distancing, I am excited to announce that our premiere for “Dr. Saville’s Horror Show” will be held in Tempe next month. This is a huge deal for me. I have wanted to be a screen writer since I was a child. It took longer than I expected, but here we are!
The four core producers of Logi Lunar Productions are very privileged to have strong, talented women in our lives, and in our social and professional circles. This has brought an amazing level of quality and skill to the production of Dr. Saville’s Horror Show.
60% of the cast and crew of the movie is female. Not because we had a quota to fill, but because we picked the people most qualified to the do the job, and the numbers happened to fall that way. During the writing process, I was cognizant of not falling into the typical 3-1, 5-1 or in the case of the original Star Wars trilogy’s case 12-1 male to female ratio. I don’t want anything I write to fall into a cliche. Equal gender representation is as critical to me as any part of the story. In a world where over 50% of the population is female, having one in five characters female makes zero sense.
We can’t wait to show you the fruits of our labors. I’m damn proud of what we’re accomplishing, and the fact we’ve done it against the typical Hollywood patriarchal blueprint makes it that much more special for me. I’m a strong supporter of equality and I’ve always been surrounded with strong females and role models. This has extended into my writing and some of my favorite characters I’ve written have been female. It makes sense that my first feature length production continues this important part of my life.
Work continues on building the final set to Dr. Saville’s Horror Show. What could this be?
