MARIAH Joe Hanrahan plays the father of a younger boy whose spirit is possessed
by an abducted girl in the short horror film, written and directed by Julie Hale.
Filming, August, 2012.
BLOWBACK Joe Hanrahan plays a double-dealing political operative in the short thriller directed by Aaron Coffman, whose ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS feature played the 2011 St. Louis International Film Festival. Filming January, 2012.
THE PLAGUE In this short based on Nobel Prize winner Albert Camus’ novel of the same name, Joe Hanrahan plays the doctor dealing with the fast-spreading disease in a quarantined town. Directed by Christopher James Jordan who directed Joe in the horror short ROE.
OF THE AGES NEW Michelle Manott's short film, featuring Joe Hanrahan as Tradition and Marc Wiegert as Digital, in an arts-driven battle of classic artistic methods vs. new Emethods, played The 2011 St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase and won recognition as Best Silent Film. And word has just been received that it's been accepted into The International Student Film Festival Hollywood.
THE (FIRST?LAST?) EXECUTION Directed by Patrick Murray in and beyond St. Charles, this is a short drama about the last job of a contract killer. Joe Hanrahan plays the killer. An early April screening for cast and crew was very well received, and final touches are being put of the film for possible entry into the 2011 St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.
NEW This short film, titled THE LAST EXECUTION, is now complete and can be watched in its entirety by hitting this link.
THE SLACKS OF DRACULA Directed by Craig McCallister and Produced by (and Starring) Chris Reilly, this is a madcap feature about two failed actors who make their own horror film with funding from a soft-core porn producer. Joe Hanrahan plays the porn producer’s accountant who’s forced into the role of Dracula (who, to his dismay, is beaten thoroughly several times during the film by the characters he’s directed to threaten and attack.) In production for about 18 months, final scenes are being shot this April. The film will be headed to Festivals shortly after.
BUBBA MOON FACE This gritty feature, directed by Blake Eckhard in February, 2010, is now finished and targeted towards Festivals. Eckhard has already directed three features set, as this film is, in and around his native Stanberry, MO. This is a raw, violent story of a family at society’s fringes. Joe Hanrahan plays the returning patriarch who, as always, looks for gain in his family’s misfortunes, and goes to any length to get it. With a healthy contingent of St. Louis actors and crew involved in BUBBA, Blake is hoping to gain entry into this year’s St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.
NEW Though it didn’t gain a spot in the Filmmakers Showcase (because, I guess, the filmmaker is not from St. Louis, though the bulk of his cast and crew are from here), BUBBA MOON FACE (because of its quality, no doubt) was accepted into The 2011 St. Louis International Film Festival, and will be shown during the November Festival. It has also been accepted into The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival.
