My name is Jerry Janda, and I had the privilege of working on Baggage last year — a fantastic short film that was born from the collaboration of Rob Dimension, Jeremiah Kipp, and Action Media Productions (Jeff Gould and Steve Adams). (Seriously, if you haven’t seen Baggage, do yourself a favor and order it: http://youvebeenrobbedfilms.blogspot.com/p/baggage.html.)
I played a small role, invested a little money, and learned a lot. The experience was so inspirational…
And the result is Painkiller.
I decided to start 2014 by pursuing a lifetime dream: making a movie. (OK, in this case, a short horror film.) I completed the script on New Year’s day (based on an idea I’ve been kicking around for months), and things are already progressing nicely. I’m working out details with a director (whom I hope to name soon), and he and I are in the process of putting together a crew and cast (with one part being played by me).
If all goes according to plan, shooting will take place two weekends in April.
Look for updates here.
