First Look: Behind The Scenes of The Quantum Terror

For starters, I'd like to say thank you all, to those who have supported this film, whether it be through your pledges of money to our Indiegogo, or just by reposting our updates, tweets, Instagram pics, and You Tube videos. The reason there's been such a stretch of time between updates is that we've been really busy shooting the movie, so I'd like to get this one going with a "first look" video of what's been going on behind the scenes.


Please, be sure to watch if from our You Tube channel, give it a thumbs up, leave a comment, and share it with your friends. 

A lot has happened, since the last update. We sadly had to say goodby to the amazing Mike Gassaway, due to scheduling conflicts. No, this isn't one of those "difficult actors" situations where we got into a fist fight onset or something. (and I wouldn't be able to type this if it was. Mike is a marshal arts master.) Mike is a true professional, an amazing talent, and a joy to have onset. He's also in very high demand, and our low budget indie schedual means that he was often on other shoots when we were ready to roll. We both agreed it was in the best interest of the movie to recast his role. I fully intend to cast him in future films.

So, filling in the role of Detective Ritchie in a major way is non other than Val Mayerik.


Val is a long time veteran of the screen and stage, but makes his living nowadays as a graphic and comic book artist. You may also know him as the co-creator of Marvel's Howard The Duck. We just finished shooting with him and he did a beyond amazing job.

Here's a pic of Val with Indiegogo pledge reward holder Curry Parker, who took one of our product placement pledge reward levels. 

Before that, we had a great time shooting two days worth of footage with Matt Blackwell, who plays Jacob Colt. Matt gives a chilling low key performance and has no problem handling any number of creepy, crawly, tentacled, practical effects horrors that we throw his way. 


As you can see, Curry has been hanging out with us a lot, and we were also thrilled to have Matt's girlfriend, model Briana Dija Palacios come lend a hand, too. 

On Saturday, we had a day of shooting with Jordan Michael Brinkman, who killed it with a big scene that we're choosing to keep under wraps until the film is released, if it's all the same to you. 



Going farther back in time, here are a few photos from our earlier shoots.

There's loads more I could talk about, but there's plenty of work to yet be done. I'll be posting more of these photos to our Facebook photo album, very soon.

As always, thank you!
