BLAIR FRANKLIN - Writer / Director
Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I dreamed of making movies since childhood. As a lifelong fan of horror films, I grew up reading magazines like Fangoria, Gorezone and CineFX. My bedroom walls were plastered with posters of Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Frankenstein and illustrations from H.R. Giger. The movies that always scared me the most were about the unknown or the supernatural - the madness that lurks in the shadows of our minds. Studying film at at UC Santa Barbara, I received my B.A. in Film Studies. While at UCSB, I co-wrote and directed an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart.” After college, living in S.F., I shot a film noir with a twist on the femme fatale, called “A Kiss for Friday.” As of late, I have been working for the past 10 years casting and producing unscripted television for networks like the History Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and many more. "Forever", my newest short film, marks a return to my roots creating dark-toned scripted material. I look forward to exploring more of the darkness...because the deeper you travel, the darker it gets.
