In 2010 I founded a production company specializing in Supernatural, Horror and Thriller genre entertainment. The next year I’ve expanded my producing focus to include transmedia projects. (Wonder what that word actually means? Read this wiki article.)
The first project in production was a reality show featuring the Los Angeles Ghost Patrol. Due to events that took place on the first day of filming the pilot, the project has now become a feature-length film about a local haunting. This film, L.A.G.P., is finishing post production, and we will be seeking distribution opportunities later this year.
In active development is a 13-episode supernatural TV show with a live second screen experience, as well as several feature projects. Charon Pictures is also actively involved in the Los Angeles Ghost Patrol storyworld as the producer of a live event to be held at WyrdCon and an alternate reality game (ARG).
