+The Project FAQs

INVESTMENT IN THE 'CAST'

The 'Shadow Cast' are my life ,along with fellow writer and screen writer Paul Griffiths we have developed Beyond Darkness Films ( a little nod to H P Lovercraft ). Our ambitious goal is to take some of these 'Cast' into movies and TV. By investing in this book , you are investing in the continued creation and evolution of these world builders. We are to create horror legends and stories of epic imaginative darkness. Fantastical horror and science fiction. This book and proceeds from it will go towards creating new IP's, a wealth of preproduction material/scripts and then on to shoot movie shorts with fully prosthetic creatures. Four such project are currently under way, needing funding to start that journey to full feature, they all start with this book. They all stem from the 'Cast' in this book..

Explore the seeds of these projects, explore the Cast, experience their horror.
