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.”

Ian Clarkson takes over role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision

Double Vision Writer/Producer/Director Terry R. Wickham is happy to announce he has cast Ian Clarkson to take over the role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision.

Wickham says, “The original actor that was set to play this character had something happen in his life that will prevent him from being available when we shoot in June.  So rather than re-audition a bunch of actors, I reached out to just Ian Clarkson, who expressed interest in the role.

I had worked with Ian twice before.  He was the Key Grip on my movie “Stash” and I cast him as an actor for in the Red Carpet Film Festival penthouse rooftop scene Edwin M. Figueroa’s film “Choke“, both part of Devil’s Five feature film.  So I knew firsthand of his hard working dedicated approach and how I could count on him to deliver.

This new role is pretty diverse and will really give Ian a challenge to pull off the multidimensionality of the part.  So I went ahead and auditioned just Ian. What he showed me wasn’t quite where I think he needs to be for the movie, but I believe wholeheartedly he will do the things needed to be ready for the shoot in June.

Everyone deserves chances and with all the effort Ian gave to my other films, I felt he earned opportunity to advance  himself as an actor.

As a director sometimes you take risks and in this case I felt Ian should be rewarded to really show what he can do as an actor.”

Bio in Ian Clarkson’s words:

Since graduating, I’ve had numerous roles in the world of TV and Film.  My first role was an Associate Producer working on a film with Joyce Dewitt and Rob Bogue called “Rock Story.” Later I was Project Coordinator on a reality show called “Yalla NY.”  Soon I moved on to network TV working at both Sundance TV and later Nickelodeon. I was then offered a role as Associate Producer at Aspire TV working at reality show “The Graduates.” While working there I began acting on web series my friends were producing and eventually got casted for a supporting role on a short film called “Act Nice”. I’m an all around producer/actor and director in both TV and film.
