The story of Double Fantasy involves three girlfriends played by Madison Di Loren, Noreen Abrams and Jennifer Drake. The friends drive out to a spooky house on eastern Long Island to tell each share their fantasies with each other.
The first fantasy concerns one of the girls (Jennifer Drake) getting more sexual loving than one could ever imagine. The second fantasy is a Beauty and the Best type tale of “Joann Lavelle” (Madison Di Loren) having a relationship with the legendary “Shadow Man” (Ted Moriates) who actually lived within the old house they are within.
The last girl (Noreen Abrams) has a funny quick fantasy that helps deflate the tension sustained in the dark love story that proceeded it.
But Joann’s fantasy isn’t over like you think, when she gets the ultimate choice to join her man in heaven. But if she does do it, she will die here in our existence.
Award-winning Director Terry R. Wickham is looking forward to the opportunity Writer/Producer Emilio Rosa is giving him to direct his mini-series XXistence. Terry says, “XXistence is right up my alley in terms of storytelling. It’s a psychological thriller where story and character are the focus, which I feel are the most important aspects in making any kind of film.” Terry plans on amplifying the drama written on the page with suspense, his filmmaking eye and directorial approach. Terry is currently in post-production on “Stash”, an episode within the feature film Devil’s Five and will be directing the Wraparound segment for that film in late spring/early summer.

On September 24, 1989 Terry R. Wickham directed a music video to capture his frustration of his favorite band Dokken breaking up. Terry says, “I wasn’t quite as distraught as the girl in my video but I had to heighten it a bit to make it more dramatic.”
Terry called on his then wife’s (Madison Di Loren) niece Doria Simeone to play the devoted fan.
The video was sot by Ken Vincent D’Alessio in 9-hours on that day, 6-hours shooting and 3-hours traveling to nine different locations listed below:
