Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is happy to announce that Abandoned Make-Up Artist will be doing the upcoming horror-thriller Gruesome Threesome.

Wickham fills us in, “Regina was totally up for working together again and it gives me a real sense of comfort knowing the look of my actors will be in her skillful hands.  She’s got a great attitude and accepted the gig without hesitation.  From the experience we had on Abandoned, I know first hand how easy she is on set and that’s very important when collaborating on projects such as this.

I can’t wait to  get on the set of Gruesome Threesome in mid-February and have Regina make Chanise, John and Linda look their best.”

Regina Tune is an established makeup artist catering to New York and New Jersey area.  She graduated from Robert Fiance Makeup Academy in Perth Amboy,  New Jersey and has been in the industry for over 5 years. In her own words, “My loyal clientele is proof that I truly love what I do.

Today Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham turned over his Edit Log/Plan for Abandoned to Editor Jason Paluck.  With so many projects on Wickham’s plate, it took a while.

For those who might be interested Abandoned is made up of 33 total shots.  The average take count was 4.66 takes per shot.  The most takes for one shot was 14 takes.  The least was 1 take.

The Director shares some thoughts, “The footage is incredible.  Between the acting, legendary locations and camerawork we’ve got something really strong.

There’s a sure-handedness to the direction I really strived to achieve.  Aaron Mathias is frigging amazing in the film and Siakie Tetteh comes across very natural and believable.

The movie is captured by Adrian Popescu ‘s silky smooth cinematography.  He did astounding things with lens length and light to generate short depth of field, where our characters are surrounded by blurred foreground and background.   We wanted to draw you to the characters.

Leftonred Atanycorner’s Steadicam work definitely is an attribute in the film, though I wouldn’t say it’s ever done in a show-off way.  It’s grounded to the purpose of what is happening in the scenes and sometimes you might not ever guess it’s Steadicam.

I also feel there’s a visual economy to the movie that probably comes from what I’ve picked up from John Carpenter’s directorial approach.  I think it’s something Carpenter is a master at doing and missing in much of today’s film making.

Now I can’t wait to see how it all comes together in the hands of Editor Jason Paluck.  I know this movie means a lot to him because he played integral role in getting Abandoned made.”

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham finally started Edit Logging the footage for ABANDONED tonight. Wickham says, “The footage looks sensational and I’m really happy with my actors’ performances. Fun trivia: so far in the first 4 shots, we averaged 5.25 takes per shot with the last take being the best in three shots, while the other one, the second to last take will be what I’ll use.”
