Abandoned Star Siakie Tetteh cast in Double Vision

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is beyond excited to announce that he has cast Siakie Tetteh to play a critical role in Double Vision.

Wickham says, “My friend/Screenwriter Jason Alvino gave the great suggestion of casting the lead actress from my film Abandoned to play the psychic/medium character because her African heritage.  He felt that not only is she beautiful, but her ancestry would bring tremendous history and texture to the film.  I couldn’t agree with him more.  I spoke to Siakie and she’s thrilled to join the cast.

Jason also suggested that I look at the film from a totally different perspective so I didn’t get stuck with just my original ideas.  I have and he’s opened a Pandora’s box of sorts as my creatives juices are flowing big-time.  I’m writing new scenes and have decided to make the film have two parts instead of three.

This makes so much sense because it goes along with the title Double Vision, which has infinite meanings in this movie.

Plus, the other day it hit me how I could bridge the two story/plotlines. All I can say is that it’s an exhilarating mix of the love story feel of The Notebook, mixed with the best suspense drama you see in a Alfred Hitchcock movie, with a tiny pinch of Basic Instinct (a very Hitchcockian thriller) and topped with the intensity of a Wes Craven movie.”

Nicholas Prainito takes over as Director of Photography of Double Vision

Film director Terry R. Wickham is delighted to announce that Nicholas Prainito (pronounced PRAY-nee-toh) has taken over as Director of Photography on his upcoming suspense-thriller Double Vision.

Wickham says, “Because of a creative differences, the previous DP decided not to do the film.  So I was forced to find a new cinematographer.

Nicholas was already going to handle all the aerial photography needed in Double Vision, with drones.  So we discussed the movie as him being the Director of Photography also. After speaking in detail and seeing his impressive work, it became crystal clear he was the right visual partner for this movie.

What impresses me the most about Nick is his can-do attitude of trying literally anything. I saw it first-hand when he filmed both the clip for our Indiegogo Double Vision campaign and the GoFundMe video clip  for Devil’s Five.

Some cinematographers feel you can only do certain things with equipment. Nicholas is more open-minded and willing to go for it, which is something I really hope for with a cinematographer.

The fact is Nicholas is highly equipped to handle the type of moving cameras I see with my vision  of Double Vision.  We will be utilizing Steadicam, dolly moves, cranes and drones besides more conservative camera setups.  My particular directing style will really be on full display in this movie.

Also with Nick, it’s actually going to be the first time in a very long time that I’m working with a DP who lives on Long Island. I think because he based more local than some of the others I’ve worked with recently, it will be beneficial to the production, since we will be filming here on the island and in Suffolk County to be specific.

We’re going to get together soon to watch some movies I have in reference to my vision for Double Vision. I’m looking forward to collaborating with Nick and making the most cinematic thrilling experience we can together.”

Patrick Reilly Sound Recordist for Double Vision

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is very enthusiastic to have Patrick Reilly as the Sound Recordist for his upcoming Love Story Thriller Double Vision.

Sound Recordist/Designer Patrick Reilly carried a big stick on The Devil’s Five

Wickham says, ” It’s really cool that we are going to work together again for a third time.  Pat did the sound recording for both The Devil’s Five  (aka The Wraparound) and Abandoned.

In this screengrab from Abandoned, Pat Reilly played this mysterious dark shrouded figure besides recording all live sound.

In  Abandoned, Pat actually played the threatening leader of the hooded figures/Satanists  (see Pat in photo above).

There is a tremendously comforting emotional feeling you get when working with the same people. I think this stems from not only knowing I can depend on Pat, but we have been through the war of making a movie together more than once and that’s a special unique bond that can never be broken.

Sound Recordist Pat Reilly is enjoying himself on the set of Abandoned.

Pat understands the importance of his position, takes it seriously and does it extremely well.  But it’s also important that he’s friendly, compassionate and just a person who makes the whole experience better.

The bottom line is that he cares about the end product and for all these reasons it’s going to be a real honor and pleasure to colloborate again.

I’m sure that the new team of actors and crew will feel the same after seeing how he does his job.”
