Seed and Spark
The Horror genre is an ever-changing platform. Ideas, ideologies and social conditions are the foundations of a finely tuned film. Whether it is a Psychological Thriller or the Supernatural we, as the audience, digest the reflections of our present age. Sure, the blood, gore, and demons do have a weighing factor but it is the narration that enlightens senses.
The indie Horror scene has helped define the genre. Hollywood Land has developed into a joke for establishing scare content. In recent years freelance Directors, screenwriter and production crew are paving the path with new conceptions of Horror. Most achieved their dreams via self-financing. Others relied on the kindness of the Horror community via crowdfunding sources. Then there are the mergers of both. In some occasions, filmmakers often have the comfort to obtain angel investors.
Whatever the funding source the dream of producing a film and prevailing is the biggest reward. For us, as the public, we get to experience another vision emerge. For the filmmaker, it is a stride forward for dream fulfillment.
On a side note; many of us have dreams to aspire in the Horror genre. Whether its to grow into a career as a director, screenwriter or cinematographer don’t stand dormant in a day job. The 9-5 grind is appropriate as short-term security. Turn your objectives into a long-term framework. Do what you love to do.
While running DecayMag there are two persons I’ve had the pleasure of watching as their success flourish. Vanessa Ionta Wright and Samantha Kolesnik released four film projects and founded the Women in Horror Film Festival over the many months. Kolesnik also finds the time to serve as Content Contributor for DecayMag. The pair is a testament of pursuing dreams and overcoming obstacles.
The Horror film industry is distinguished as a competitive market. Yet, Kolesnik has evolved with astronomical symmetry and this is only the beginning… next is Mamas Boy.
