About

“Insanity has never looked so fabulous!” truly represents this project. Set in a non-disclosed time, the project focuses on two serial killers bound by fate, and (in the end) love. Harry Meyland, a timid, isolated man (who is secretly a transvestite vigilante by night) works at a run down local escort service. By night he fights to protect ‘his girls’ from the clutches of Billy, a local pervert who has a penchant for blood.  Little does Harry know that his pursuit of this depraved psychopath will lead to his romantic discovery that forever changes both Harry and Billy’s lives.

Directed by Aaron Babcock and Jeremy Arruda, this film will bring together a multitude of talented individuals. Aaron Babcock, a graduate of Fitchburg State University, has worked as a director - of - photography on several independent projects and for the past two years has worked in corporate and political video.

Jeremy Arruda is an artist / composer - by - trade who has been featured in exhibitions across Massachusetts and has also been the subject of a one man show in Ormond Beach, Florida. His work has also been featured in New York’s Creative Sugar Magazine. While this is his first directional debut he has worked as a concept artist and composer on several independent films in the past.

The final and most important member of this project is YOU! Without your help this project can not be a reality. We have almost all the equipment we will need to produce the film and most of the cast and crew are gong unpaid on this project. However we still need money. This will go directly into buying props, paying for locations, paying our surprise mystery casting, and most importantly into music rights. This project includes a musical number which will be expensive but will also make you all jump for joy, particularly as it will be juxtaposed with a VERY brutal murder scene. This stuff is expensive so we need your help. But we don’t want you to just give us your money. No…. we are going to give you rewards for helping us on our epic and religious quest of self enlightenment as we try and finish up this project.

Still it is important to know about the cast and crew.  First up we have Carlo Barbieri III who is joining us as a Gaffer and Location Manager.   A movie geek, Carlo has worked on major films as well as many independent pictures.

Helping us as a production assistant we have Dan Tomasik.  A reviewer for team-procreate.com and a writer, Dan has worked as a personal assistant to a major horror star.  He is an avid film goer and recently has returned from LA.

Playing Harry Meyland, one member of our dynamic duo, we have Kris Salvi.  A Fitchburg based actor, Kris has acted for many a years in indie short and feature films around New England. He constantly pursues his love of the craft anywhere he can. He enjoys working on indie films and has a love for the cinema just in general.

The other member of our duo we have Zachary Hare as Billy.  Zack is an actor, writer, and critic. He has his own personal podcast ("Inch From Insanity") where he has interviewed celebs from many walks of life. Always drawn to the world of fiction. Anything to do with fantasy, the weird, sci-fi, and adventure he usually knows about or wants to.

Our lead damsel in distress is played by Geneve Rousseau Lanouette.  Geneve is an actress/makeup artist from Massachusetts. She has created special effects makeups and has helped create makeup designs for our characters in "Strawberry Lane." She is one of our producers and has helped a great deal with producer Jordayne Sherman in making our nightmarish vision come to life.

As part of our Kickstarter effort we have withheld a major casting.  Can you say mystery casting?!?!  It is exciting.... we promise! She is a film actress with many horror films under her belt. We are excited to have her on board and look forward to sharing more details with you in the near future.

Risks and challenges

With any film project there are complications and possible setbacks. With an experienced cast and crew we plan to overcome any challenges that arise throughout the production. Weather will be the largest factor in scheduling due to the film being made in the New England region (last year we had 110 inches of snow in the Boston area!!!!!) We have planned for that and therefore have an extended production period. In all likelihood production will move faster and we will be able to get the film to you well before next winter.
