A female detective is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a prestigious university for the deaf in London. The investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world… That’s the premise of our soon-to-be-released book Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes).

Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes)

New thriller novel…chilling.

 

Set in the often underreported world of the Deaf, we hope Silent Fear will give readers a unique insight into what everyday life for deaf people is like. We have worked closely with the Deaf community to ensure authenticity.

This novel was inspired by the murders of two deaf students at Gallaudet University, one of the world’s most prestigious learning institutions for the deaf, in the early 2000’s. The investigating authorities didn’t know if it was an ‘inside job’ and for a time nearly everyone connected to Gallaudet was under suspicion.

We have also penned a screenplay adaptation of the book and are concurrently developing a feature film adaptation of Silent Fear. Here’s a two-minute teaser trailer for the movie: https://www.goodreads.com/videos/1136…

One of the producers on board the film adaptation, New Zealand’s premiere Deaf filmmaker Brent Macpherson, is obviously a fantastic asset to the production. We are very appreciative that Brent has seen the cinematic potential in our story and has poured his heart and soul into developing the associated film project.

Topics covered in this interview include the ugly history of anti-Semitism, indisputable Holocaust facts, the Middle East conflict…and Donald Trump!

Above is a poster for the dystopian adventure movie After Armageddon which I recently finished filming.

Logline: Two men, who are polar opposites, must come to terms with being the last two humans on Earth in a post-Apocalyptic world.

t2i_IMG_1597

The film was directed by my long-time collaborator and buddy Stanley Joseph (pictured directing me in a rock-climbing scene ABOVE) and my lead co-star was one of Australia’s great actors Berynn Schwerdt of Wyrmwood fame (pictured BELOW).

10628256_910530568999235_989020202882272992_n

Stanley Joseph’s production company (World Pictures Australia) produced the film which we shot in rural NSW, Australia.

My good friend and versatile actor Gil Ben-Moshe (pictured BELOW far left) also features in the main cast.

After Armageddon is now in post-production and being edited. It will be released in cinemas later this year.

To create an intense realism, we shot the movie in a spontaneous fashion and about 90% of the dialogue was completely ad-libbed. This free-flow acting approach was partially inspired by Marlon Brando’s groundbreaking improvisational performances of the 1970s including The Godfather, The Last Tango in Paris and Apocalypse Now.

Stanley Joseph’s style of directing is also very improvisational and he came up with quite a few additional scenes/sequences on set which were not in the original screenplay. Stanley designed the shoot to be an extremely creative storytelling/acting experience – the only problem was this unique style stretched our cinematographer to the absolute limit (see below!)

t2i_IMG_1581

Noel Evans (pictured BELOW on the left) was our cinematographer and did an amazing job under pressure. In fact, Noel was probably under the most pressure of any of us and I am in awe of just how hard cinematographers work.

Here are some comments from a few of our key cast members:

Zenia Starr

1511520_251015608419051_8439109888392788569_o

“Working on ‘My Cornerstone’ was a truly unique experience for me as an actress; for the first time I had the opportunity to act in a film with both of parents and so our ‘on set family’ truly was family!
The production team, cast and crew collectively put in many long and hard hours of work to get this film shot in record timing. Contrary to our on-screen interactions for the most part of the film, many lovely friendships were made and belly-laughing memories created. I hope that the message of this film will resonate well with those who watch it.”
Romin Khan

“If the words love, faith and hope resonate with you then ‘My Cornerstone’ is a film not be missed.
I have experienced a lot of love working on set with  ‘My Cornerstone’ team and we all had hopes regarding the faith of this movie to make it to the big screen and our dreams have come true indeed.
So please do come by and join us at the nearest event cinemas near you to celebrate this amazing journey of love, faith and hope called My Cornerstone.”
Gil Ben-Moshe

“I am a cast member of ‘My Cornerstone’ along with my identical twin brother Oren. Apart from being a cast member I also wore several hats within the crew department. I was the first assistant director as well as the production manager. Working on My Cornerstone was a great experience, as I got to work along some of the most incredible cast and crew I’ve ever worked with. I thank producer/director Stanley Joseph for the wonderful opportunity.”

“It was a pleasure to play the part of Heather Pinto in  ‘My Cornerstone’. Film was so well cast that on-screen family actually became a family after the shoot. Whole cast and crew were very professional. Everybody has worked long hours to finish not one but two films in record days, which is a big achievement. Stanley has worked very hard to produce and release the film. Hats off to him!”

And lastly, myself (James Morcan)

“Filming this ambitious international story was a mammoth undertaking and only achievable due to our highly efficient crew who pulled off untold miracles. Personally speaking, being an actor and screenwriter on the film was a tough dual assignment given the tight deadlines and the improvisational nature of the shoot. But fortunately with Stanley’s constant guidance and a very supportive cast and crew, I managed to deliver what was required.”
