Scorn at Bleedfest

Let me introduce you to “Scorn“.

A labor of love that started with an image in mind and a couple of friends.  This was like a side project almost.  Just something to experiment and have fun. I told my two friends, who starred in the film, Ashli Dayton and Adam Smith, that I wanted to do something and it may involve torture of some sort, its going to be in a barn and it’s going to be cold.  They really had no idea what it was about until we got on set.

Synopsis: A sultry woman who likes it kinky with hot candle wax. Every man’s fantasy in the right circumstances… or payback for the wrong man.

We really haven’t put out too much information about this particular film.  Scorn is a mini short of about 1 minute, written and directed by Lisa Coffelt.  We shot this when we went back to visit family Christmas 2010, in about 20 degree weather, so it was extremely cold and there was a windchill.  It cost us literally nothing to make, we borrowed items from family members, such as a deer rack, rope, a ladder, candles and a worker lamp.  We stuffed a small camera into our carry on bag and headed off.  It was shot on a Digital 8 Sony Handycam.  We had 2 lights, the clamp worker light, and a small(like low wattage teeny bulb) overhead light in the barn location we shot in, 3 if you want to count the candle.  My family have about 3 barns to choose from, so we used that as our location.

Scorn will be shown at Bleedfest on September 25th.  The festival is held at EL CID in Silverlake, and is from 1 – 5.  Click on the image below to RSVP. There will be a red carpet event, and I will be getting up on stage to introduce the film.

Internal Thoughts IndieGogo (preproduction)

Well here it is our new campaign.  Its going to be short one(October 16th deadline), but we have a ton of faith in everyone we know to help support it. We’ve pulled strings, and gotten the best of the best to help.  So you can click on the photo above or the link below to go to it. Our goal is $500. We have approximately 70% female cast and crew ratio on this particular film. Let me introduce you to everyone so far:

Lisa Coffelt – Director, Writer, Producer

Jessica Gallant – Fantastic DP, Cinematographer

Rachel & Rebekah Rife – Lead Actresses


Truett Butler – Actress





Crizzle aka Cristyn – Producer, AD, Script Soup

Angele Caron – Stunt Coordinator

Lauren Ishii – Makeup Effects Artist/Hair

Ashli Dayton/Sassy Apples – Hair Accessory Designer

Adam Smith – Actor

Chris Wingood – Producer

James Coffelt – Designer, Grip

Ron Chavez – Photographer

More to be announced soon.

Synopsis: A journey through the mind & body. Depression and anxiety, sex, anger, psychosis, and sadness set in.  This is the journey that our main character Molly will be going through in this film.

Most of my films come from dreams, or images that will pop up in my head before I go to sleep, but this script is personal.  It’s almost an autobiography of sorts, the script was based upon a particular point in my life that was terrifying and horrific. A point where I thought I was insane, and maybe I was but it was something that was so disturbing that I felt it needed to be shared.  It’s a very female centric story, although I’m sure a man could have a similar experience, however I feel that a woman will be able to deliver this role with such conviction, I could never have visualized it otherwise.

“Internal Thoughts” is our baby, and we’ve worked very hard in pre-production to make things happen.  Our shoot date is October 15th and 16th.  And we appreciate anything and everything we can get.

I’m pleased to announce our upcoming film, currently called imPlant. But more excited to tell you about our f-f-fantastic cast. I’m really excited to work with these two, they have tons of talent and I feel will really fill out the roles. We just shot everything on the first weekend of December, and are hoping for a quick turnaround. We’ve also wrangled up a fabulous composer named Jerry Barksdale, who’s been in bands such as Empyrean Asunder and Alice in the Aftermath and donated most of the music for The Sound of Zombies. So all in all we have some super talent coming our way. More to come on updates and things are happening fast and frequent.
