Hollywood, CA, May 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Dawna Lee Heising of Eye on Entertainment has announced an interview with filmmaker Mark Savage at Polymedia Studios in Orange on April 23, 2013, for the nationally broadcast television series. John Cox filmed and edited the segment. Savage discussed his latest movies, including "Pond Scum," "Fertisle" and "Kinderplay," all in post-production. “Pond Scum” is about A wronged woman who heads for Los Angeles to settle a score with an ex-boyfriend. Unfortunately, her plans are upended by a chance and brutal encounter with a monstrous killer/rapist.
Savage also discussed his upcoming film, “Circus of Dread,” starring Bill Oberst Jr., Vida Ghaffari, Domiziano Arcangeli, Dawna Lee Heising, Gary Cairns, Rich Goteri and Jasi Cotton Lanier (credits not contractual). “Circus of Dread” continues Savage’s obsession with capturing the horror of man’s duality. The feature with strong horror overtones is now in active development at CineNature, an international production company with interests in US, Japan and Australian film production. Savage is also set to collaborate on an upcoming movie project with veteran actor Aki Aleong, to be filmed in the United States and in China, called “Swan Song.”
Savage first achieved fame as an underground cult filmmaker specializing in brutal, gory psychological thrillers and horror movies. He directed dozens of short films beginning at age 14 before moving on to direct feature films, numerous commercials, music videos and industrial films. His love affair with the cinema began in Australia, when, at the age of 14, he purchased a Super-8 camera with monies he had earned working at McDonald’s. Savage is proud of his earliest efforts at weekend film making projects. His rare Super 8 films, including “Methusarla, Guardian of Hell” and “Rogues” were included in the Subversive Cinema release of “Savage Sinema From Down Under,” a retrospective look at Savage's more than two decade career that includes an amazing selection of supplements and feature films such as “Marauders,” “Defenceless” and “Sensitive New Age Killer.”
An entry on Savage and his work in The Journal of Underground Film http://www.badlit.com/?tag=mark-savage says: "Mark Savage is also a voracious cinephile, particularly of European and Asian cult cinema, and has written for several print publications." In 2007, Fangoria magazine ran a six-page career profile on him. Savage watches at least one movie a day and is the author of the blog “Phantom of Pulp,” which can be found at phantomofpulp.blogspot.com
Savage is a genre film maniac, and his blog posts are filled with images and memories of his favorite horror and exploitation films. Savage also includes practical tips for aspiring filmmakers in his blog.
