DITCH — a 3-minute thriller — is a collaboration between Jerry Janda (PAINKILLER’s writer/executive producer/co-star) and Jeffrey Scott Gould (PAINKILLER’s cinematographer/executive producer/editor). Jerry wrote DITCH, and Jeff provided the cinematography and editing. Jerry and Jeff also directed and produced this taut mini-short.
Jerry and Jeff plan to make even more shorts (two are in pre-production), and we’re looking forward to seeing what else they come up with!
You can watch DITCH below. Check it out!

Members of the PAINKILLER crew reunited this weekend to shoot a scene for BLACK WAKE, a feature film written by Jerry Janda (who also wrote, produced, and co-starred in PAINKILLER).
BLACK WAKE is directed by Jeremiah Kipp (PAINKILLER’s director) and co-stars Kelly Rae LeGault (the star of PAINKILLER). Jerry makes a cameo as a police officer, and, by all accounts, probably needed a painkiller after filming wrapped.
We’re really looking forward to seeing how this collaboration turns out when BLACK WAKE is released next year!
Jerry Janda (PAINKILLER’s writer/producer/co-star) and Jeffrey Scott Gould (PAINKILLER’s cinematographer/producer/editor) have teamed up to co-direct a series of horror micro-shorts.
They wrapped their first — DITCH — on September 19.
Break a leg, guys!

PAINKILLER received three nominations at the 2015 HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival — including best director and best actress — and won the award for best short!
This award is a tremendous honor, and one that the cast and crew share with all of our supporters. We are grateful to everyone who has helped make PAINKILLER possible. And we hope that this award — one of the many that PAINKILLER continues to win — helps validate all of the contributions and efforts that our supporters made on our behalf. We could not have achieved anything without them.
