Keep your eyes peeled at horror festivals in 2019 for Black Frames’ newest production, STICKY!

STICKY is a micro-short film, directed by Ashley Good and created by an entirely female crew. STICKY is Ashley's homage to 90s VHS tapes and the early works of Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino that she binged growing up.

Stay tuned for festival announcements and Sticky’s online release date.

Interview with StephenKingShortMovies.com

Thank you to Óscar Garrido at StephenKingShortMovies.com for asking me and the rest of In the Deathroom's cast to participate in your interview! 

The complete interview is available at StephenKingShortMovies.com. Here are the first few questions:

SKSM: Could you start with telling me a bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?

Ashley Good: My name is Ashley, and I am an independent filmmaker and screenwriter from Victoria, British Columbia (Canada), as well as the Programming Coordinator at a local filmmakers society.

SKSM: When did you know you wanted to become a filmmaker?      

Ashley Good: I decided to become a filmmaker when I realized that if I wanted to have any of my screenplays made, I was going to have to film them myself.

While Victoria’s film industry is growing, the majority of projects being shot here are backed by large American production companies, which won’t accept unsolicited screenplays. So you can’t get an agent, unless you’ve had your work produced, and you can’t get your work produced until you have an agent… It’s a real catch 22.

My first project was a “proof of concept” pilot for a potential series that I wrote. It was incredibly low budget (some of the actors even took turns working as boom ops), but as soon as I said “action” for the first time, I knew that I wanted to focus on filmmaking.

SKSM: When did you make In the Deathroom? Can you tell me a little about the production? How much did it cost? How long did it take to film it?

Ashley Good: In the Deathroom was shot over one day in October. It was one of the most straight forward productions that I have worked on, as I had a very clear mental image of how I wanted it to look. It was a tricky to explain my “game show” plans to the rest of the crew, but as soon as one of the leads, Ross Ogilvie (Escobar) said “Like Running Man!” the rest of the crew understood.

The entire production had a budget of less than $500 CAD.

SKSM: How come you picked In the Deathroom to develop into a movie? What is it in the story that you like so much?

Ashley Good: I picked In the Deathroom because it of its twisted underlying dark humour. My own projects have all been dark comedies, so I wanted to pick a Dollar Baby that I could hopefully do justice to. Popsy would have been interesting to attempt, but it would have been so out of my comfort zone to direct that I don’t believe I could have been true to the story.

Update time!

I realized that I haven't made a blog post about anything Black Frames related in a while, so here is a quick update!

2017 kicked off with a bang as I began pre-production for Black Frames' first feature length film, PITY PARTY. Pity Party is now wrapped and is set to enter the film fest circuit in early 2018! For more information about this project, visit Black Frames' project page or visit PityPartyMovie.com. 

Following the completion of Pity Party, I moved on to the production of a Stephen King "Dollar Baby," IN THE DEATHROOM! In the Deathroom will also be entered into film fests in early 2018, albeit festivals for short films. To learn more about In the Deathroom, visit FilmFreeway.com.
