UPCOMING INDEPENDENT HORROR FILM “LAKE RUNS RED” ANNOUNCES BOBKAT PRODUCTIONS TO JOIN PRODUCTION IN KEY SPECIAL EFFECTS POSITIONS
AITKIN, MN – August 1st, 2014 - “Lake Runs Red” the Minnesota based independent horror feature from producers Mike Ascher, Jeff Fuller, J. Dan Moores, Jason Riesgraf, and Stephanie Riesgraf today announce that BobKat Productions has agreed to volunteer their time and practical special effects expertise to "Lake Runs Red."
BobKat Productions is a joint venture between Robert Cormican and Keagan Mueller, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. BobKat specializes in practical special effects, horror applications, prosthetics, squibs, and pyrotechnic explosions.
On “Lake Runs Red,” Robert Cormican will hold the title of special effects supervisor and Keagan Mueller has volunteered to contribute as special effects technician. Robert will oversee the special effects department. Both team members will work closely with key makeup artist Katie Triplett and director Jason Riesgraf on making the effects as real as possible.
"I interviewed quit a few special effects guys. Either they didn’t have the skills or weren’t a good fit. We signed two other production groups previously, but those situations weren't meant to be. Fortunately, it worked out for the best because then I met Robert, who has been an absolutely tremendous addition to the team," crowed Jason Riesgraf, the film's director.
Added J. Dan Moores, producer and 1st assistant director, "We believe finding the right fit is key to our success. Robert and Keagan love horror movies. They're both a terrific match for this film."
“We’re super excited to be working with so many talented people. It’s been a blast so far! This is a great opportunity for BobKat to show off the best blood, guts, and gore we’ve ever done,” said Robert Cormican. “I think you’re going to be really impressed with the finished product on-screen.”
“Lake Runs Red” is currently in production. Principal photography is scheduled to conclude Fall 2014.
