The Night Watchmen
This was fun indie film that I was able to do some amazing photography and graphics for~!
It’s late, maybe midnight. The air extorts discomfort with a chill that shoots straight to the bones and catches on the breath. Blood drips, and dirt clings to at least a half-dozen tired faces. Body fragments form a crust on the floor. Furniture in disarray, casualties of a struggle. But no one in the area seems concerned; they seem downright cavalier. Some are grabbing slices of pizza from a nearby table. Despite having put in 12 hours of work on the set, the cast and crew of the 2016 film The Night Watchmen are decidedly content.
Filming a comedy/horror movie at the former The Capital newspaper headquarters in Annapolis provided a unique experience for the creative minds behind the movie. Director Mitchell Altieri (The Hamiltons, 2006), story creators Ken Arnold (Men in Black III, 2012, and House of Cards, 2014) and Dan DeLuca (The Wire), and co-writer Jamie Nash (Lovely Molly, 2011) brought to life the screenplay that was intentionally written for such an environment. As the tagline suggests, “Some men were born heroes… it wasn’t these guys.” Unless of course, you redefine a hero as someone who makes you laugh until tears roll down your face (which is exactly what this movie does). With support from producers Jeffery Allard (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, 2003, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, 2006), three-time Emmy award winner Demetrea Triantafillides, and executive producers Cheryl Staurulakis (Power of Film award recipient), Leo Staurulakis, and Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, 1999), The Night Watchmen was built on a sturdy foundation.
