As I mentioned before the film is about a retired vampire hunter who is forced out of retirement when his old vampire nemesis rises from the grave and hunts him and his family down. But this isn't your normal horror or vampire film. I'm exploring themes like loneliness and moral issues. I based their relationship on Batman and The Joker. Kevin (the hunter) being like Batman in the way that he doesn't believe in killing vampires. He just buries them and hopes they stay that way. He knows that he's doing a good thing by helping people, but he also knows he's doing the job halfway. He's putting a band-aid on an open wound and his worst fear is now realized.

Lars is like The Joker in the way that he wants to push Kevin to his absolute limit. He wants to push him as far as he can and wants to see if he can become "the one" Kevin finally puts away. But also, Lars is a vampire so he's immortal. A lot of people think that being immortal is great. But is it really? You have to see your friends and your loved ones die....yet you live on. So, in a weird way, Kevin is Lars' only friend. But now that Kevin is retired and has a family and has moved on, Lars feels alone again...

That's all I'm going to say :-) Don't want to give too much away because you all will be seeing the film (or so I hope!).

I plan on paying for a professional stunt man for the fight scenes in the film, a make-up artist to make sure the bruises, cuts, and blood are nice and in your face, a composer to provide original music for the film. I also plan on renting some equipment, like lenses for my camera's, audio equipment, lights, etc. I would also very much like to be able to compensate my crew and my cast at least a little bit for all of their hard work and dedication to my vision. That, most of all, is what I would want to do. They are all GREAT, not just good, at what they do, as well as friends of mine, and I want to show them that I appreciate all that they're doing for me.
