"Bloodloss" writer takes on the role of director in this experimental vampire project
Jason Dolan has been tapped to direct the experimental feature film and social media project “Bloodloss,” from his own script, for the management production companies Benderspink, Caliber Media Co. and Simplicity Media, Benderspink's JC Spink told TheWrap.
“Bloodloss” focuses on a documentary television producer as she investigates her sister’s sudden disappearance into an underground culture of self-proclaimed “vampires” in Los Angeles. Jeffrey Potts wrote the original draft.
The feature narrative will be made up of faux-documentary scenes, relying on a combination of actors and real-life participants who live the vampire lifestyle, including both human vampires and their blood donors. It will be filmed inside vampire fetish clubs. The social media campaign will include status updates, video posts, blog entries and will allow viewers to engage with each character.
In a writing partnership with Shawn Christensen, Dolan co-wrote and produced the Lionsgate feature “Enter Nowhere” as well as the Scott Free project “Sidney Hall.” Dolan and Christensen's script “The Legend of Roddy Dean Pippin” is currently in preproduction for director Brinton Bryan. As a solo writer, Dolan optioned his script “Polar Seasons” to actress Jaime King, who intends to direct.
Caliber Media's Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller, Benderspink's Spink and Chris Bender and Simplicity Media's Amanda Cryer, Les Lukacs and Rik Shorten are producing.
Dolan is represented by Caliber Media and UTA and attorney Alan Hergott.
