INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING IS BLOOD DEEP

The Filmmakers of BLOOD DEEP are Small Fish in Universal Studios? Big Pond

Dead Horse Productions?a virtually unknown name in motion picture production?announced today that they are nearing completion of principal photography on their first feature length motion picture suspense-thriller, BLOOD DEEP. BLOOD DEEP is currently seeking U.S and international distribution.

BLOOD DEEP is a 35 mm feature length suspense thriller about a childhood reunion of friends that turns deadly when one of the guests unwittingly admits to murder.

A continuing student at the American Film Institute, and an alumn of California State University at Long Beach, Todd Kniss found a friend in Terri Melkonian, Universal Studios Production Services Representative, also a CSULB graduate. Melkonian was able to secure a shooting location on the Universal Studios lot at an affordable price that also included prop and equipment rentals.

?In search of our main location, and running out of affordable options, we came to Universal Studios expecting to be turned down. With little more than a pipe dream and a handful of change in our pocket, our movie was looking for a handout,? says Director and Producer Todd Kniss.

BLOOD DEEP is being filmed at the ?Chicken Ranch,? an old Victorian style home most recognized as the The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, starring Dolly Parton,

BLOOD DEEP is a more than ambitious first film for new filmmakers Todd Kniss, Katherine M. Kniss, and their partner, and CSULB classmate, Brian Gork. ?We didn?t want to remake Clerks,? commented Gork. The group will film over 300 scenes in 29 days on a physical budget of less than $75K. They will film extensive underwater and stunt scenes with a principal cast of over a dozen.

?Universal Studios really opened a door of opportunity to us. Our production value has increased tremendously, and we?re receiving great exposure,? notes Katherine Kniss, Executive Producer.

Several more hands have since reached out to the group offering services in the form of camera rentals to catering at discounted rates. Sterling Tech Services based in Garden Grove, offered the group a generous 50% off rate for the rental of their grip and electric equipment. A sister company to the more well-known industry provider ACDC lighting in Los Angeles, Sterling Tech Services provides discounts to film students of southern California and independent film companies with limited budgets.

?Looking out for the little guy?that?s good business,? said Wil Fabrizio, Sales Associate, Sterling Tech Services.

BLOOD DEEP stars Gerald Hopkins (?General Hospital?), Jeridan Frye (?Sex in the City,? Menendez: A Killing in Beverly Hills), Femi Emiola (The Living Silence, ABC?s ?The Practice?), Bo Foxworth (Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys), Cameron Zeidler, Jordan Belfi (HBO?s ?Entourage?) Amy Christine (The Mortuary), and Ben McCain (?Lois & Clark,? ?Black Scorpion?), with Peter Onorati (?Sex in the City,? Goodfellas), Wendy Kaplan (Halloween 5, ?The Guiding Light?), Wendy Braun (Paparazzi), Kim Delgado (Life as a House), and Suzy McCoppin (Undefeated, ?Entourage?).

So what's BLOOD DEEP all about?

A reunion of childhood friends turns deadly when one of the guests unwittingly admits to murder.

In 1985 a missing boy?s charred remains are found in a vacant field. Nineteen years later a gathering of old friends reveals a deadly secret behind the teenager?s disappearance.

Katie Spencer returns to her estranged hometown for the first time since leaving for college, fifteen years earlier. Bequeathed her recently deceased Grandmother?s estate Katie is soon overwhelmed with nostalgia and childhood friends.

In attendance are Cal, who still carries a flame for Katie, although he is recently married to Allison; Sean and Jacob, brothers who have suddenly, and tragically, inherited an enormous family fortune; Wil, a long time suitor of Katie?s; and Katie?s best friend, Robin, who brings along college roommate Eliza, a psychology student trained in hypnosis.

Eliza?s talents soon become the life of the party, but, while under hypnosis, one of the guests unwittingly confesses to murder. Before the night is over the killing will begin again.
