Check out the new horror short Chosen directed by Nicholas VanDevender. It features cinematography by AJ Ovio and stars Leslie Gomez as Velma, Riju Maya Martillini, Brian Blu, Vene Arcoraci, Nicholas Dodero, Arlene Gonzales, and others.
The short features on Crypt TV which collaborates with storytellers around the world to bring 'next generation of monster stories to life.'
Crypt TV recently won a Webby for its film, “The Birch,” which has garnered 14 million views on Facebook. Crypt TV was also honored as the digital keynote at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
VIM: What was a highlight from filming 'The Chosen'?
AJ OVIO: I'm torn on that one. A great highlight was day 1 (the house location) seeing everybody finally come together after so much pre-production... while for me personally, it was Arlene Gonzalez (who was just supposed to PA) on Day 3 stepping up to act in a vital role (and absolutely nailed it) which pretty much saved the entire movie!
VIM: And what's next up for you?
AJ OVIO: We're just trying to keep the momentum going now. We have a sci-fi short in pre-production (hopefully shooting in September) along with putting the finishing touches on a horror feature script which we hope to start production on early 2018
So yeah, not planning to sleep for the next couple of years or so
