What is Dark Departure? A little independent filmmaking, a little urban exploration, and a lot of fun, Dark Departure began in 2007 when Tom was moving away from the town where he and Ryan had met working at Blockbuster Video. To commemorate the occasion, practically on a circumstantial whim, the two built a film around Tom's move-out process and celebration and shot it over the span of 48 hours.
Lo and behold, Tom wound up moving back to town the following year and - having had such a blast the first time - the pair decided to go for a sequel. Many technical difficulties and personal milestones later, the series finally continues in 2015 with the same evolving spirit of the original.
So what is Dark Departure? Dark Departure is raw filmmaking. Dark Departure is going where you wouldn't have otherwise. Dark Departure is doing the best with what little you have.
