Below is the recent press release for a feature film I have been hired as picture editor for. Editing a slasher film, I love when dreams come true.
Rockford, Illinois-based Plastic Age Productions is now in preproduction on their first feature length film!
Raymond Did It is a slasher film in the tradition of Halloween and Prom Night.
When twelve-year-old Bryce Rourke is accidentally killed in a playground scuffle, his friends decide to blame Bryce’s developmentally delayed older brother for the accident. Raymond is taken to a state hospital while the true killer walks free.
Six years later, Raymond escapes from the hospital to seek bloody revenge for his brother’s death.
Raymond Did It is written and directed by Travis Legge (Jimmy’s Basement, Nation Undead: Kept). No stranger to the horror genre, Travis Legge has written comic books and roleplaying games, including the critically acclaimed Contagion game setting.
Rounding out the production team on Raymond Did It are Visual Supervisor and Camera Operator Tim Stotz and Picture Editor Robert J. Williams.
Tim Stotz has been a professional video producer for over a decade, with hundreds of commercials, several shorts, and a feature under his belt. His work can be found at timstotz.com
Robert J. Williams is a freelance assistant editor and aspiring picture editor working mainly out of the Chicago area. He recently cut the trailer for a highly anticipated 2011 feature and assisted on a National PBS Documentary Special.
Raymond Did It stars Kyle Hoskins (Skeet Shooting, Nation Undead: Kept) as a developmentally delayed man framed for murder and bent on vengeance. A versatile actor, Kyle has previously played lovelorn slackers, average joes tormented by zombies, and brings a wide range of ability to the role of Raymond. Standing at 6’5″ tall, with a massive, bulky build, Kyle is among one of the largest, most imposing figures to take on the role of a slasher.
Lindsay Felton (VH1 Scream Queens, Grind) co-stars as Tammy, a young woman tormented by guilt for what she and her friends did to Raymond.
With years in front of the camera, having worked with some of the greatest talents in Hollywood, Lindsay brings experience and finely-tuned craft to this demanding role.
