Baggage teaser trailer, casting info & how you can help!

Baggage teaser trailer, casting info & how you can help!



"baggage" is a story that Rob Dimension has been sitting on for over two years now. While eating lunch together, Sal Valente made mention to Rob about a simple premise, this simple premise has blossomed and grown in a full fledged project. Dimension, fresh off the success of the award winning film "No Clowning Around"; another short film he wrote, starred and co-directed, has worked hard to bring fresh life to the Horror genre. Dimension is no stranger to the horror community, from the TV show "Late Night at the Horror Hotel" to blogging and reviews, even to podcasting, he has stood behind so many filmmakers trying to shine a light on the grass roots level; The Independents.


After the gritty feel of No Clowning Around, Dimension wanted to focus on "the complete opposite" and "baggage" was born. Submitting the script to Jeremiah Kipp, a director that Dimension has praised for nearly two years, was a personal risk but came with an amazing reward. Jeremiah responded almost immediately and was on board. Jeremiah had this to say: "baggage immediately captured my interest as a beautiful and macabre tale of a man haunted by desire.  It’s got the feverish melancholy intensity of an Edgar Allan Poe story, but told in a modern and transgressive way.  Every image should resonate with the beauty of a painting, but one where if you look at it too closely, you realize you’re caught up in the swirls of a nightmare."


Kipp is currently involved with the "In Fear of" webseries along with countless other films like Crestfallen, Contact and Easy Prey to name just a few. We could not be any happier to have Jeremiah's amazing vision and directional skills at work for this film. Dimension had this to say "I truly can't wait to work with Jeremiah, he has such passion."

The Cinematographer for "baggage" will be Jeffrey Gould, from Action Media Productions (http://www.actionmedia.tv). Jeff has an extensive background in film and has added great chemistry to the team. We are extremely happy to have Jeff and his team a part of this project. 

Also, Associate Producer Bill Wilusz will be leading the Behind the Scenes video package that will be included with the DVD release. Bill has also written, starred and produced his own films (Prey and Demon Hunters) so we are sure this inside look into the making will be a can't miss!
