OMBIS: Alien Invasion Gets Official Release, Name Change, Poster & New Trailer!
August 22, 2014 |
IgorsLab »

Tonight as I was recording a new episode of Igor's Lab Monsterific Podcast with Jason John Beebe, director Adam Steigert text me the new poster for his film Not Human, formerly Ombis. I have to say if I saw this poster, box art in a store it would make me stop and pick it up. Now I am not sure if the guy on the cover is supposed to be the star of the film, my podcast partner, Mr. Beebe, but if it is they did some air brush work on him, just kidding. With the name change you get a new trailer as well.

Adam Steigert: Movie Magician

December 31, 2013 | LFV BLOG »

Picture filmmaker Adam Steigert directing his first major car crash for “A Grim Becoming.  Steigert strives for new benchmarks in each movie he makes.  He looks to wow his audience, so a car crash taken from several unique camera angles can be rightly judged a personal triumph for any independent filmmaker.

Yet the director found the experience nerve-wracking.  “I had the local fire department and EMTs there, just in case something went wrong.  The whole time I was sitting there worrying about driver injury, the car catching fire, or permanently scarring the tree we were running into.  It’s a big scene......

Your upcoming movie A Grim Becoming - - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?

A Grim Becoming is a horror/comedy about a character named Raphael reluctantly transforming into a grim reaper. Raphael resists the transformation - unaware that his resistance only speeds up the process.

My character October is an inappropriate, self-centered, rude, obnoxious brat. Due to her relationship to Raphael, October is in turn collateral damage. She experiences many transformations both physically and emotionally.....

An Interview with Brandyn T. Williams, Star of A Grim Becoming

September 13, 2013 | (re)Search my Trash »

Your upcoming movie A Grim Becoming - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?

A Grim Becoming is about an bitter young architect in a high position at his company who revisits his hometown due to his nephew passing away. On the way home he encounters a near death experience and witnesses a Grim Reaper taking a soul. From seeing this, he is now forced to take on the powers of a reaper but persistently refuses.

My character, Raphael, first appears in the film as a very cocky young executive who holds his own among the other executives in his firm. Once he gets home and has to face the challenge of fighting the transformation he is going through, you see he has a few soft spots and a bit of a cowardly persona when it comes to pending death....
