Filming Underway for Prey

Finally, after many rounds of casting and a few weeks of rehearsals, filming has begun on our short film Prey. And you thought it would never happen!

Last Sunday we shot the bar scene of our short horror film Prey at Lindberg’s, who was gracious enough to open for us on a Sunday. It was a lot of fun and hard work, and we got some great performances from everyone.

Behind the scenes pictures are on their way, but here is a still to feast your eyes on in the mean time.
