Andrew Miles “ClubbyThingy” song licensed for “The Devil’s Five”

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham has reached an agreement with Andrew Miles to license his song “ClubbyThingy” for The Devil’s Five segment.

Wickham says, “I first heard Andrew Miles music when I reviewed his DeeperNET One album in 2013.   He’s got this way of creating amazing beats to go along with his electronica that is fun, exciting and just totally refreshing.

We worked together in 2015 when Andrew licensed one of his tracks for the Super Punch and Kick Target Informercial.

When it came time to have a song playing from the radio of one of the young ladies car in The Devil’s Five, I knew I had to reach out to Andrew because he’s a master of that kind of sound.   He had this track available, which was perfect for the movie.  I’m so excited that he could be part of the film.”

Read Andrew’s Bio to discover more about the talented musician:

Andrew Miles’ fascination with music and sound began when he was just ten years old in Chicago, Illinois where he would explore creative 4-track tape recording, multi-uses of FX units and abstract recording techniques; all of which inevitably led him to the modern uses of electronics and computer based recording.

After years of dabbling with genres such as ambient, noise, industrial and techno, Andrew found his true calling from influential artists like Simon Posford (Hallucinogen, Shpongle), whose work made him realize that a recording is not just a two-dimensional space, but rather a whole world that exists in the stereo field.

In 2003, Andrew studied at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. He received further knowledge of world class studios and equipment that is out of reach of many. Elaborating and breaking rules were his key focus to stand out from the crowd of 1000’s of others.

Relocating to Portland, OR in 2010, where he now operates under the moniker DeeperNET, Miles has been perfecting his own sonic signature by blending genres such as downtempo, EDM, psychedelic, and trance into an inspired Psytronica-charged sound – a sound he calls “SpaceTECH.”

A passion for digging behind the menus and exploring new techniques is where the story continues today…

Chanise Renae wins Co-Lead role of “Sarah Peters” in Gruesome Threesome

The Devil’s Five actress Chanise Renae has edged out all other actresses to play “Sarah Peters” in the upcoming horror-thriller Gruesome Threesome.

Director Terry R. Wickham gives his explanation for casting her, “Out of the three roles for this movie, this one was the closest competition.  One girl totally looked the part as it was written (Caucasian with auburn hair and curvy body) while Chanise was obviously a different race, but more sophisticated and polished as an actress.

It was my idea to actually call Chanise to have her audition when I wasn’t satisfied with the flaky turnout for the part.  Out of  nearly 150 actresses who had submitted, I narrowed down to the top 15 actresses based on their resumes, reels and photos.  But when it came time for the two days of auditions, only 4 out of those 15 showed up on Skype.  This was not only frustrating for me to waste my time with people who were not serious, but sad move on their part.  I say that because they effectively erased themselves from being considered for any project I do going forward and I’m a busy filmmaker (I’m working on 6 movies at this very moment).  All actors should take this as a warning.

The fact is I had worked with Chanise on The Devil’s Five.  I knew first hand that she had the confidence and strength to be flirtatious in a sexy way, she can could turn on a dime and be funny, dramatic and terrified as well. So when I called her, she expressed that she’d love to dig into this kind of role.

Then she proved it in her audition.  There’s a moment early in the first scene that Tim Clark wrote that I call the “Wow” moment and she definitely got that reaction out of me when we did the scene. She put a lot of thought into how she spoke, riding the emotional roller-coaster of the character , then did her make-up spot on and dressed to kill.

Though the other actress did quite a good job as well and looked quite impressive as well.  In the end, I felt Chanise was the better actress and that’s why I cast her.”

Chanise Renae most recently starred as Captain Synthia Ryan in the trailer for the new pilot “Absynthia”, filming in 2017.  In addition to multiple film, television and commercial credits she has performed at the Producers Club and Manhattan Repertory Theatre. Chanise can be heard singing throughout the tri-state area for professional sports teams and charity events. She studies acting at HB Studio in NYC. For more information on Chanise Renae please check her out at:
