VISION AWARD FOR CINEMATOGRAPHY
SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL


18th century justice has finally caught up with grave robbers Arthur Blake and Willie Grimes. With the specter of the guillotine looming over him, young Blake confesses to a priest, Father Duffy, about his fifteen years of adventure in the resurrection trade; from his humble beginnings as a young boy stealing trinkets from corpses, to his partnership with seasoned ghoul Willie Grimes hunting creatures unwilling to accept their place in the ground. The colorful and peculiar history of Grimes and Blake is one filled with adventure, horror, and vicious professional competition that ends where it begins -- the grave.

Glenn McQuaid
Irish writer/director Glenn McQuaid was born and raised on the North side of Dublin. As a teenager he was a member of The Dublin Youth Theater and worked as an extra on several productions going on in Ireland at that time. From 1999 on, he has worked in the post production field as a visual effects artist and title designer in both New York and Dublin. McQuaid's first collaboration with Larry Fessenden started when he came on board to coordinate the visual effects on the Ti West directed indie The Roost. Since then he has worked on several of Fessenden's Glass Eye Pix productions including The Off Season and Trigger Man. In 2005 he worked as 2nd unit director and visual effects coordinator for Larry Fessenden's The Last Winter. He designed the credit sequence for the film as well. Also in 2005, McQuaid wrote and directed the short film "The Resurrection Apprentice" which premiered in Montreal at the Fantasia film festival. Inspired by classic ghost stories, gallows humor and murder ballads; I Sell The Dead marks McQuaid's feature film debut; It's a love letter to the fog drenched classics of years past and showcases McQuaid's love for fantasy and story telling.

U.S.A., 2008, 3 mins, Color

Director: Shalena Oxley

As a growing minority, zombies have quickly assimilated into society, but still encounter the occasional prejudicial setback. “Opening Night of the Living Dead” is a nutty homage to George A Romero’s beloved muse, the zombie.
