Trevor Dillon and Ian Hock
Ghost Party Pictures presents “Foxwood”
Born and raised in Southern California, Dillon and Hock formed a filmmaking partnership after meeting in college. Die hard fans of genre films, they aim to create energizing content that advances narrative and style while honoring their love and passion for the films they grew up with. Together, they are set to unveil their latest project, “FOXWOOD,” a holiday horror short where a blind date takes a monstrous turn as a young couple meets on a cold Christmas night. Stay tuned as they look to expand the “Foxwood” story while developing fun and exciting new projects for the future.
Director of “Santaland”
Sam is an LA-based horror director who recently graduated from Chapman University with an MFA in Film Production. He also holds a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley where he taught a class on slasher films. Sam has completed two semesters as a development intern for Blumhouse Productions and teaches a course on film production at Stanford University’s Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes. He loves drag queens and scary movies and seeing what happens when you mix the two.
Killer in “Santaland”
A fan of the eclectic, the obscure, the fantastical, Eric prefers to immerse himself in the roles of monsters, creatures, or anything otherworldly. Hailing from upstate New York Eric graduated high school and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. Returning to the states he developed an interest in acting the calling leading to Los Angeles where Eric studied under acting coach Dennis LaValle. Eric then had the good fortune of being cast in a Chapman student film to play the masked killer in the movie Santa Land where he worked with director Sam Wineman. On two other occasions Eric has served Mr. Wineman as masked killer, for the films Mischief Night and most recently The Quiet Room. Outside of the horror genre Eric portrayed a space station mechanic in another Chapman student film The Beacon and a hitman in the independent film Origins of Life. With or without the masks and makeup Eric enjoys taking on various characters and welcomes the challenge of depicting them in such a way that connects and entertains.
