The Story:
Occupying the unusual status of simultaneously being my fourth short film and first foray into straight horror, Supply & Demand was the last project I made through the auspices of my Alma Mater , the Palm Beach/Miami Film School. It is also the one that I ultimately put the most heart and soul into. I gave everything each time I've stepped behind a camera, but this was something I'd been building towards since I was five and first caught "Creature from the Black Lagoon" on the Saturday night ABC monster movie program "Creature Feature",a moment which secured my love of horror for all time.




For my first attempt and writing and directing an entry in my favorite genre, I wanted to pay homage to the sort horror stories I enjoyed as a kid- stories based on the theme of ironic justice that EC Comics and later Creepshow (itself an homage to EC comics) pulled off so well. In this twisted tale, a cruel young executive receives a ghastly lesson in the importance of providing for his fellow man.

The Premiere:
This film screened as part of a short film showcase held at the Mos' Art Theater in West Palm Beach, Florida back in April of 2011, where it was very well received (which somewhat surprised me since there were audio issues and the projector they were using to screen the films blew the colors out in several of the shorts, my own included).

Some Deserved Thanks:
I'm grateful to God for even giving me the opportunity to go to film school and for all the people I've met along the way. School is over now and I have moved on ,focusing on feature screen-writing (writing has always been my first, best love). However I am also keenly aware that many people never have the opportunity to actually engage their passion as I did from 2007 -2011. To be granted the chance to do what I've been able to do was an incredible gift and, even though I've never made a dime with it, I wouldn't have missed this experience for anything.

BIG thanks to my entire cast and crew- every one of them exemplified dedication and professionalism during this project, actually making themselves available once more after the project experienced a several-month delay in shooting at one point. I particularly would like to extend special thanks to the stars: Bernie, who wielded a wicked meat cleaver and saved the project after the original lead didn't pan out and Cary, who for such a nice guy played an awesome creep . A big tip of the hat also goes to my erstwhile partner in crime and fellow PBFS grad Tommy Nelson . Tommy has proven himself a talented director in his own right on numerous occasions and he has provided the cinematography for all of my short films. He really stepped up and outdid himself here. It was a pleasure working with all of you.Thank you so much for helping me to achieve my lifelong dream of making a horror film and then watching it premiere on the big screen with a crowd of strangers in a dark room. There is no finer feeling in the world.

About The Score:

The musical score was the work of an exceptional artist by the name of Kevin Macleod, who offers his compositions free of charge to aspiring filmmakers on his website www.Incompetech.com. If you are working in the low-to-no budget Independent film scene and need quality music that won't break the bank, I strongly recommend Mr.Macleod's website.


Now, prepare to get your gruesome groove on and rock some Indie shock , kiddies, because D.S. has a sick little story he wants to tell you........
