Rue-Morgue: NSFW Exclusive—THE RESTORATION AT GRAYSON MANOR at Fantasia/Frontieres

Fantasia/Frontières Exclusive: NSFW concept video and comments for Glass Eye Pix’s THE RESTORATION AT GRAYSON MANOR

Of the 20 feature-film pitches presented during a lengthy session at the Frontières International Co-Production Market at Montreal’s current Fantasia festival, one was especially attention-grabbing. Glass Eye Pix topper Larry Fessenden, director Glenn McQuaid and screenwriter Clay McLeod Chapman offered a vivid combination of animation and live action to sell potential financiers on their project THE RESTORATION AT GRAYSON MANOR, and the latter teaser (which is extremely NSFW) can be seen here exclusively, along with a RUE MORGUE chat with the trio.

THE RESTORATION OF GRAYSON MANOR is about Boyd, a rich young man living a sex-drugs-and-rock-’n’-roll lifestyle, much to the disapproval of his mother, who’s anxious for him to produce an heir. When Boyd loses his hands in an accident, they are replaced by a robotic pair that he can control with his mind. As the proof-of-concept video seen below demonstrates, that’s bad news for a hunky guy who shows up at the family mansion expecting a good time—and our hero’s original, severed hands also make appearances, albeit seen only through Boyd’s eyes as he dreams of them wreaking havoc in the house.

Glass Eye Pix heading to Frontiers during the Fantasia Film Fest

 
Filmmakers from around the world gather in Montreal each year with prospective films in tow, hoping that they can find the resources to make their next projects pop up on those screens. The mix of filmmakers is always eclectic and they all come with their own fascinating, crazy and wonderful ideas.
 
The first wave of titles taking part in this year’s co-production market have been announced and as always it is a diverse mix of legends, indie faves and more. King of the zombies, George A. Romero, is making, what I believe, his first appearance in the market. Indie leader Larry Fessenden is back with one of his Glass Eye Pix family members, Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead). LFO‘s Antonio Tublén and Alexandre Brondsted are back with a new project. There are also a handful of filmmakers in the first wave below looking to make their feature debuts. They could be the future leaders of genre and fantastic cinema perhaps?

….

This weekend in Cannes, Frontiers will also unveil the Frontières Platform at the Marché du Film, a dedicated section of presentations and networking opportunities for the genre community. Events will include a Proof of Concept Presentation of projects in the late finance & packaging stages, a Buyers Showcase of recently completed or work-in-progress films, and the co-presentation of the Fantastic Fanatics Mixer, a networking cocktail in partnership with genre festivals and markets around the world.
