Black Castle Productions officially launched at the beginning of July to fill the gap between low budget independent features and studio films. A partnership between, Producer Sabrina Cooper, Producer/Director Stacey Haid and Cinematographer Jeremy Noggles, the company will produce films in all genres, including horror, thriller, romantic comedy, documentaries and drama, with budgets that range between $5-10 million.
The inaugural slate of Black Castle Productions films includes: Phantasmagoria: The Movie a thriller with traces of horror and mystery following a young married couple who inherits an old Southern plantation, once owned by an eccentric 19th Century magician.
Phantasmagoria is co-produced by AFI alumnus Nikit Doshi and directed by the multiple award-winning Writer/Director Steven Shea. “As a huge fan of the game when I was in high school, we are all very excited to bring this film to life. We have taken what was great about the game and tweaked it just a bit. The changes we made were not only to help it cross over to film but also to update it for today’s audience who might not know about the game,” says Sabrina, producer of Phantasmagoria: The Movie. “We also have a few surprises up our sleeves, some things that actually have never been done before in our industry! Like I said, as fans of the game, we are all pretty excited about this project.”
Phantasmagoria: The Movie will be shot and will be doing post production entirely in the state of Louisiana. Along with Phantasmagoria: The Movie, Black Castle Productions has a few other exciting projects in various stages of development. Life On Bourbon will also be their first web series. Life On Bourbon is a gritty look into the crazy and often comical lives of a group of twenty-something misfits on the world famous Bourbon Street in New Orleans Louisiana. Other projects in development include a romantic comedy, Girlfriend For Hire, and Nu Na Da Ul Tsun Yi, an epic drama.
