“Fallon’s film is visually stunning and for the most part contains a wicked visual appeal toward it that garners some memorable scenes including some fast paced chase sequences, and stunning sweeping pans on our sexy actresses, all of whom are empowered more by Fallon’s fetishistic visual flourishes and camera angles than their uniforms and hand held weapons.” – Cinema Crazed
And it’s the end of a long journey. THE RED HOURS has been with me for 11 years now. It started off as a feature length script, which led to a painful education as to lying, spineless and crooked producers. After years of development hell, stars attached, false promises and constant let downs, I got the rights back to my script and gave up on getting the feature off the ground. Years went by, other projects happened, but I still had some nagging Red Hours in me, it was bothering me and I needed to let it out.
And that’s when a short version of what used to be a feature was born. That resulted in another kind of battle, but at least it was one that had me surrounded with good peeps and one that I could fight and win. So today, my short film THE RED HOURS is available worldwide via a limited release. There are only 100 copies available (the DVD sleeve is signed by lead Deke Richards and myself) and it costs 12.99 CAD plus taxes and 4 bucks of shipping and handling .

The Red Hours is about: A quiet war is transpiring between lovers Mark (Deke Richards) and Natasha (Amy Wickenheiser). The more mature and old fashion Marc can’t come to terms with his better half being bisexual hence he’s constantly feeling hurt and resentful. On her end, Natasha feels criticized and un-accepted, consequently finding comfort in the arms of her lover Drew (Heather Westwood). One fateful night at a lowly dive bar, the quiet war between the two finally explodes, resulting in a soiree of blood, chainsaws and bullets.
The short stars Deke Richards, Amy Wickeneiser and Heather Westwood. It was written, produced and directed by me. It was produced and DOPd by Donny Broussard. And it was edited by Michael Nouryeh and Christian Viel. It was a long freaking road to get this little film shot, edited and now on DVD. Every obstacle you can think of was shoved our way. I learned a lot through this experience and yes it is with a sigh of relief and a feeling of “completion” that I write this FINAL The Red Hours blog entry. A big THANK YOU to everybody that supported me through this venture. It took way longer than I thought it would to get done, but hey, all good, it’s now motherfucking done. AMEN!
