Incredible filmmaking talent, with looks to match

Incredible filmmaking talent, with looks to match

If you're even slightly aware of the goings-on in the independent horror scene, then the name Emma Dark should be a familiar one. For those living under a rock, she's the highly active, ultra-supportive, award-winning filmmaker (and model) responsible for the critically well-received action-horror film, "Seize the Night". With that film, she proved that a shoe-string budget didn't have to mean a shoe-string look, and with many reviews noting in-fact how well produced the exhilarating vampire action short looked, Emma quickly proved herself as a talent not to be ignored. So, if you happened to miss the hype train with her first major go-round, now's your chance to snag a first class ticket for the next one with the upcoming, "Salient Minus Ten". Which, based on promo material and synopsis, strikes us as a darker lost episode of The Twilight Zone. Read the official press-release below and join in on bringing this sci-fi horror to fruition.

Award-winning filmmaker Emma Dark announces her disturbing new Sci-Fi/Horror short film SALIENT MINUS TEN.

SALIENT MINUS TEN is the new Sci-Fi/Horror short film from award-winning independent filmmaker Emma Dark.  The film is pegged by Miss Dark as a “cerebral foray into the darker more disturbing side of Science Fiction”.  Currently in pre-production, the film is set to start shooting in September.

The synopsis reads:  Adam Harper is an average man.  And on an average day he suddenly finds himself catapulted into the strangest, reality changing game...  A game of time and chance, where the stakes are a matter of life and death.

With the success of her previous short film, vampires vs. werewolves Action/Horror ’Seize the Night’, Emma Dark’s been making quite an impression on the independent film scene over the past year.  Once again Emma is set create another high quality genre short film, and will be producing and directing SALIENT MINUS TEN, as well as having written the script.

The film’s cast includes Dean Sills (playing the lead role of Adam Harper), Chris Hampshire and Beric Read of ‘Seize the Night’, and Emma Dark also takes a supporting role as the antagonist of the story.  Joining the crew are more ’Seize the Night’ alumni, composer Eric Elick, VFX artist Davy Simmons, and assistant director Merlyn Roberts. Further cast and crew announcements are to be made via the film’s social media sites.
