Red Riding Hood Movie - A Gothic Treat


The new Red Riding Hood Movie, by Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke enters the foggy world of the werewolf. The new film stars Amanda Seyfied and Gary Oldman as inhabitants of a medieval village plagued by the the beast.  Many believe the film an excuse to lure Twilight fans, but it also feeds a deeper need to go deeper, to investigate the darker aspects of life.

The cinematographer has exquisite elements, nearly archetypal in their grace.

Greeting Friends:

Sorry for being  off site  for the last week. I spent the time networking in Los Angeles with my sister, Kathleen, and working with her in sifting through photographs to use in the book's interior. Also, I have been commiserating with Robert Aulicino on the interior design of book and incorporation of visuals. David Wilson shot photographs during filming and I will be sharing these images with you on a daily basis.

The trailer is now complete and ready to be aired once the book is published, which should be very soon. Peter Busboom did an amazing job of creating an evocative film score that creates an emotional journey that is both intriguing and truly frightening in the best sense of the word.

So now we begin the visual journey, and a taste of what is to come. 

We find Alexandra and Sammy welcomed into the Sandeley's home.

Benny Duskin protrays Samuel and Morla Gorrondona the unstable, but alluring Ruth Sandeley. I protray the role of the fragile /nearly broken, Alexandra Brighton, who is about to take the journey of a lifetime.
