In each post, we will introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. Jason Dean is a co-writer for the script who is responsible for much of the clever dialogue. He also assists with marketing and created our website.
Tell us about what you are working on for the film.
I started out loaning my camera to director Adam Schabow, and it quickly spiraled out of control. Before long I was helping Schabow write the script, helping market the film, assisting with cinematography, creating the webpage, and likely will end up in the film at some point as a zombie.
What is your favorite horror movie and why?
Surprisingly I’m not a big horror fan. Seems like most are just gore-fests. Still, give me something goofy like Evil Dead 2 or that’s a complete mind-fuck like Blair Witch Project, and I’m down.
What are you most looking forward to about working on this movie and why?
I’m most excited to work on a fictional project. Most of my videos are documentary or news related. TNWH gives me the chance to flex my muscle in a new genera and try new things.
How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
If I could get Fernanda to throw some makeup on me, I figure I would fit right in and hide under their noses (or over if their noses fall off). Also, a shotgun and canned food wouldn’t hurt.
About Jason: Jason Dean (JD to his friends) is pretty freakin awesome. He grew up in the Wausau area, but has lived in Green Bay, Milwaukee, New York, Beloit and Madison. He enjoys coding, writing, film, video games, good beer, college basketball and a good book. He’s still working for a way to combine all of these into incredible experience. A former writer, editor and board member for Dane101, he now works for madison.com by day, and runs his own business - Outside the Brain Studio- at night.
