Portsmouth-based production company Pastel Wasteland has announced horror anthology “I AM AN ADDICT”, to be shot by nine international directors. The filmmakers are a mix of established and up-and-coming talent, who all have a unique visual style and a relentless passion for horror. The feature will consist of nine short films and a wraparound story, and focus on addictions such as sex, BDSM and food.
Currently approaching the last two weeks of filming, “I AM AN ADDICT” will shoot in Portsmouth from early December, wrapping just before Christmas. This will be the final filming location after successful shoots in Los Angeles and Mexico. Notable directors include Michael J Epstein (USA), whose feature film “Clickbait” is screening at genre festivals worldwide, and Adam Nelson (UK), known for award-winning feature “Emotional Motor Unit”. Additionally, directors Sam Mason Bell, Harry Bartholomew and Rob Ulitski all worked together on anthology film “Maniacal”, with the former two directors collaborating on Artsploitation Films’ “A Taste of Phobia”.
Speaking of the project, Producer/ Director Rob Ulitski said “It’s a huge honour to work alongside such talented directors from across the world, and I’m incredibly excited to see the final project. We have a diverse range of stories, focusing on the most surreal sides of addiction, and I think viewers are going to leave this film feeling very satisfied”.
