Remembering Scott Kos

by Herr Direktor on May.08, 2017, under Uncategorized

I am sure most if not everyone familiar with this site is aware by now that on May 21, 2016, we lost a great composer, actor, producer, and director, Scott Kos. Scott composed nearly every single score for DreamStalker Films in the last 7 years and was the final piece we had been missing for many years after we started making films. He was one of the main reasons we have more completed films than incomplete ones. His loss is honestly detrimental to our company and we are looking for new sources of music, with miraculously at least one solid lead, which arose at Comicon… much the same way the business relationship started with Scotty.

On a personal note, Scotty was a good friend that inspired me to keep going with his positive and enthusiastic attitude with everything that came at him. I saw him at some lows, and he always was able to regroup and turn negatives into positives with only a few minutes of regrouping himself. His light will be missed.

As a tribute to him and all his work he did with us I have posted a memorial video here.

Additionally, at Phoenix Comicon this year, there was a tribute for him as well that I filmed (most of), which can be seen here.

We will miss you, my friend.

(Nearly a year later, I see this never got posted. Grief is a hell of a thing.)

“That Creepy House” is now Live!

by Herr Direktor on May.23, 2016, under Film News, Site Updates

The bad news is, our newest short film, “That Creepy House” did not make it into this year’s Phoenix Comicon Film Festival.  The good news is you won’t have to wait any longer to watch it as it is now available on our YouTube channel.  We recommend turning all other lights off when viewing as the film is intentionally dark (visually not too dark thematically).

A quick update on other projects:

The screenplay for “Hero” is completed and being reviewed and revised.  This will likely be our next project.

Currently we have two feature length screenplays being written, one being Assassinatra.

We are in the early brainstorming process for a new Christmas film that we hope to start shooting at the end of the ear and complete shooting early in 2017.

Slayer Wars 2 – Some of the visuals for the opening scenes have been completed.  The idea is to be releasing Slayer Wars 2 and three in segments as the films are completed.

by Herr Direktor on Sep.25, 2015, under Film News, Promotions/Events

Some quick updates:

1) If you are in Mesa, AZ or thereabouts be sure to come by Gotham City Comics tonight 8-10PM. Jaime Wyman will be promoting the Kickstarter for her new book, UNINVITED. This is the third book in this series and if you’ve never heard of it I recommend you check it out.  The Kickstarter has several backing levels that include the first two books, in case you can’t make it tonight, check it out.

Tonight, there will be raffles and auctions to raise funds toward the publishing.

2) We’re about to go into production on a new short and start filming in 8 days! This one is Halloween themed so be sure to check back for info on that.

3) We have another script too that should go into production before the year is done. This one should be a fun action short, that we’re looking to mostly shoot with the GoPro3.

“Conjured Alteration” Goes Live

by Herr Direktor on Nov.25, 2014, under Uncategorized

Our 2 Week Project for 2014 is finally complete (a little over a week late)…

You can check out the details about the film here.

This film, “Dead Scene”, and “Tea Time (at least), we are tentatively planning to submit to the Phoenix Film Festival this year.

That’s pretty much all I got for now. I plan to work on the scripts for “Assassinatra” and “Christmas Cliche’d” over the next month or so, hopefully in time to film the snowy parts of the latter film in January.

“Dead Scene” goes live!

by Herr Direktor on Oct.24, 2014, under Film News, Promotions/Events, Site Updates

I know it has been forever since there were any new films or updates on DSF… but I am pleased to announce we just completed our first horror film, “Dead Scene ” for the A3F 72 Hour Fright Fest Challenge.

You can see the final film above and see all the production details (including pictures from the theatrical premiere at the A3F Fright Fest last night) on the film’s main page here.

A missed post:
“Tea Time”, DreamStalker Films’ 4th Annual 2 Week Project premiered at the 2014 Phoenix Comicon last June. It too was well received in a good size audience.

A bit of site maintenance:

“Fair Seasons” (the film itself only) has been removed and will be offered exclusively on the DreamStalker Films Shorts Vol II DVDs and Blu-Rays.

“Cubicell” has officially been scrapped due to issues with post effects and the lead actor. The page for the unfinished film has been removed.

“Assassinatra”, “Christmas Cliche’d” (Joe Benzer, writer) and “The Pelican” (Breanne Roxbury, writer) have officially been added to the pre-production section on Films as we have officially begun those scripts.

Also… DSF ‘ s 5th Annual 2 Week Challenge starts October 31st, so expect our next film the weekend of November 15th!

Happy Holidays!

by Herr Direktor on Dec.24, 2013, under Film News

Hey all, just posting to remind everyone to check out our new films from 2013, “The Con” and “Tea Time”. For convenience I am posting the videos to those directly on this page, in addition to the “DreamStalker Films Christmas Special” from last year in case you missed them!

Quick update for what’s coming for 2014 as we wrap up 2013: First up, is the much anticipated, DreamStalker Films Shorts Vol. II DVD. This one will include “99 Problems”, “The Con”, “The DreamStalker Films Christmas Special”, “Fair Seasons”, “Laptops’ Revenge”, “Rankle in the Breast”, “Schoolyard Ninjas”, and “Tea Time”. In addition each film will have a gag reel and photo slide show. I also intend to make a small number available on Blu-Ray as “Tea Time” was shot in HD.

For new projects next year we have “Assassinatra”, a spinoff of the “Super Heroines” sequence in this year’s “The Con”, and a new Christmas Special “Christmas Cliched”. Finally, we will also do our fifth annual Two Week Project.

Happy Holidays to all our fans, old and new!
From DreamStalker Films, thanks for watching!

“The Con” Premieres, Goes Live!

by Herr Direktor on May.27, 2013, under Film News, Promotions/Events, Site Updates

Well, “The Con” premiered last Friday at the Phoenix Comicon.  Thank you to everyone who came out to see it at it’s early premiere.  We were happy that the laughs were plenty and in all the right places.  For everyone that didn’t get to come out, the fact that it has officially premiered now means that you can now watch it online!  Check it out on it’s permanent page here or directly on YouTube.

As I mentioned in the Q and A after the premiere and in the last blog, we are working toward our second DVD collection of shorts.  I hope to have that put together by the end of the year.  The DVDs will either be available when you donate to DreamStalker Films (did you notice we have a Donation Button for Paypal?) and/or at a Comicon Booth at some point in the future.

DreamStalker Films Premieres

by Herr Direktor on May.17, 2013, under Film News, Promotions/Events, Site Updates

Greetings fans and followers!  Just a couple of quick updates and reminders during this very busy month.  First, don’t forget our brand new, never-before-seen film “The Con” premieres in one week at the Phoenix Comicon.  Mark the date, mark  the time, mark the location on your conquests: Friday, May 24th, Local Focus Block I starting at 10:30 am, Room 232B and C.

Second, a big thanks to Pages Per Content and Moses Fidal for showing two of our short films to the public for the first time last Friday at the Firehouse Art Gallery in Phoenix,  “Fair Seasons” and “99 Problems”.  A special thank you to Zen Jen for introducing us to Moses and giving us this opportunity.  Stay tuned, PPC will be doing more screenings throughout the summer, if I hear they are planning on showing any more of our films we will let you know.

Third, Derek just completed his second directed film (the first being “The DreamStalker Films Christmas Special”), “Rankle in the Breast“.  The film recently premiered and will likely be a bonus feature on the upcoming Vol II DVD.  Stay tuned, that will also be available to view online shortly too. [Update: Rankle in the Breast is now live with it's own page on our site!  Check it out!]

Lastly, progress is being made on the DreamStalker Films Shorts Vol II DVD.  With the completion of “The Con” we finally have enough films again to make sure we have a nice selection for this next collection.  I am currently working on getting together some special features (namely gag reels for certain) that will be available exclusively on this DVD.  Additionally, now that “Fair Seasons” has had a public screening, it has now been retired off the internet.  Our page is still up on this site for information, but the film will now be an exclusive only for this DVD.

Be sure to come out to the Phoenix Comicon next Friday to see “The Con” and look for a new blog right here shortly after Memorial Day weekend!
