LANSING, Mich. – Sept. 21, 2022 – PRLog — An eerie mansion, a sultry medium, a magician debunker, and a wacky cast of characters round out the short gothic/steampunk film “Smoke & Mirrors. ”
A commercial CDI project, whereas iZotope, a software company, wanted film footage for their worldwide demos. Instead of licensing footage, they created several scenes to be used in the demo.
They were directed and edited by Nathaniel Nose, known at CDI for being the visionary behind the third film in THE Quest Trilogy, The Christ Slayer. It was shot at the historic Dodge Turner Mansion in Lansing, Michigan.
Written by DJ Perry, it was extracted from his feature film script of the same name and produced by the CDI Tribe.
“Smoke & Mirrors” stars David Gries, Melissa Anschutz, Abby Perry, DJ Perry, Shane Hagedorn, Michael Walton, and Anthony Hornus. The result is a moody and often comedic story which a few good chills added in.
The full script and story are in development at CDI to produce as a full feature film shortly. The music was composed by Dennis Therrian, and the director of photography was Jesse Aragon.
