SCRIPT SUPERVISOR (AND EDITOR?) - "DEATH BLOOD 4" (FEATURE COMEDY-HORROR)

My colleague Chris De Pretis wrote and is directing this wonderful tongue-in-cheek horror film over the summer of 2018. I'm very happy to step out of the director's chair to support his vision and the work of our teammates. I may also edit the film if scheduling permits. :) Follow @DeathBlood4 on Instagram for updates!
