MASON MASHTARE (Director) - I love the horror and comedy genres. The two types of film seem so different, yet follow such a similar structure and pace. I feel as though the process of pulling off a jump scare or visual joke are alike. Another thing I really enjoy is telling stories that haven’t been told before. Bloody First Date is a beautiful culmination of everything I enjoy watching and making. It’s a jumbled mix of genres that I hope people will enjoy.
MORGAN HILLS (Assistant Director) - After hearing the pitch for Bloody First Date I knew I wanted to be involved. I’ve been involved in productions through a variety of roles but all of them have a similar genre being a drama. Bloody First Date being the horror/comedy that it is made me excited to try and help create something I haven’t dabled in yet so when I heard they needed an Assistant Director I jumped right on it.
NATALIE EVENSON (Producer) - The art I create is in the form of a film producer. I work closely with the idea in my films surrounding coming of age or change in one's life. I fell in love with producing when I was a Sophomore in college when I solely produced a film for the first time. My involvement with Bloody First Date was inspired by me wanting to push my comfort levels and produce a film that was not in the genre I normally would produce. Being a part of Bloody First Date has not only opened my eyes to different genres, but also helped me be able to produce art outside of my comfort level.
