“As independent horror film producers, we are charged with taking audiences on a roller coaster ride of emotions,” says movie writer, director and producer, Jason Marc Pierce. “The entire movie was shot on a micro-budget and uses CGI (computer generated imagery), visual effects, action, stunts and surround sound to enhance the audience’s experience, while scaring them and making them laugh at the same time.”
“Hellphone is a community based effort and we are fortunate to have the support of the Piedmont Film Commission, Rockingham County and other Triad business sponsors,” says movie producer, composer and DP, Stephen van Vuuren. “Hellphone’s success is due in great part to the area film community who provided expertise and technical direction with the movie’s visual effects and CGI.”
“Jason has attended countless special events we’ve hosted at our theater, so while we’re always happy toprovide a venue for local filmmakers, it’s doubly great to help one who appreciates what we do,” says Joe Scott, Promotions Coordinator for the Carousel Luxury Cinemas. “We’ve been supporters of Hellphone since day one and are thrilled to help Hellphone and its producers and writers come full circle.”
As part of premier week, Hellphone director, producers, cast and crew will be available at several special events to meet fans and sign autographs and Hellphone DVDs. Hellphone DVDs are available online for sale or at the premier for $25.
