John Brunson wants to help put Victoria on the map and what better way to do it than through his passion for filmmaking.
The 20-year-old Victoria resident, and his production company, Shatter Glass Entertainment, will be showing a trailer of its upcoming B horror movie at the Riverside Multiplex on Saturday.
The $300,000 film, "Death," is scheduled to be shot in July at the Yorktown Memorial Hospital, Brunson said.
One of the production company's short films will be also shown on Saturday, and there will be performances by Crossroads area bands who will be featured in "Death."
"I've been writing 'Death' probably for the better part of a year, a year and a half," Brunson said.
Brunson and his team had written the script and through connections, were able to have another larger production team latch onto the idea as well, he said.
The film will be shot Monday through Friday on a 20-day shoot with 18 days of dialogue and two days of B-Roll footage, he said.
The film should be edited and released in October, he added.
The whole endeavor is exciting, not only for the production crew of about 30, but for Victoria, Brunson said.
"We're trying to make something come out of Victoria," he said. "There is a lot of people here with a lot of potential."
