Dunkin’ Donuts at Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital

Dunkin’ Donuts unveiled some new philanthropic goals at today’s Iced Coffee Day Preview.

On May 24th, Dunkin’ Donuts will host their yearly Iced Coffee Day promotion. For every iced coffee sold on this day, Dunkin’ will donate $1 to the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. This donation is used to place an educator in the facility to help children keep up with their school work while they begin their recovery.

Today regional Dunkin’ Donuts unveiled their new goals for the program, and provided the staff with a much needed morning boost. We were happy to once again team up with the folks at Garland Partners to document the event in both photo and video.

Along with free coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts provided munchkins and bagels to the hard working staff of the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.

Becoming One with the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge

Community members were invited to leave their mark on the Sarah Mildred Long bridge.

Have you ever looked at a bridge and wondered, how long will that bridge last? Will it be here once I’m gone? Today, community members from Kittery and Portsmouth came together to leave their mark on a piece of history. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation has arranged a unique opportunity. They transported a thirty foot section of the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge, currently in construction, to the USS Albacore Museum and invited the community for an up close and personal look, but that wasn’t all. They invited folks to sign the inside of the bridge with sharpies.

In the 8-hours that we documented the event, the sides, ceiling and even part of the floor were filled by the over 600 participants who came to leave their mark. From your own John Hancock, to the names of those we’ve lost, these signatures will be sealed within the bridge, only to be viewed again once the structure is ready to be replaced. It’s a regular old pen and ink time capsule, and we at Bonfire Films are lucky to have witnessed such an amazing event.

It’s not every day that you encourage children to write on walls with markers.

Crimson Screen Award Nominations

Bonfire Films will return to The Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival for the 4th consecutive year.

The Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival has long been one of our favorite festivals. It’s very much a by filmmakers, for filmmakers kind of event, which is why we were so honored to receive four award nominations this year.

WMPG Fashion Show 2017

It’s important to support your local community radio station. Glad we could volunteer our services to such a great organization.

So often in our professional lives, we find ourselves with so little free time. We cherish that free time, but every so often an event comes around that makes us willing to donate that time for a good cause. This year, that was the WMPG Fashion Show. Both Kenn and I (Corey) spent our Sunday night at Port City Music Hall filming the event. It’s been a while since we’ve been asked to do a set up like this, but man was it enjoyable. Look for the full video later this week.

NECANN Event Coverage

Canna Care Docs is one of the many vendors featured at this year’s NECANN.

Every decade sees the rise of new industry. For years, cannabis culture has lurked in the shadows, a taboo for most of the general public. But with the recent laws passing in states across the US, what was once spoken in hushed tones, is now a blossoming industry. What makes NECANN such a great event is that it brings in the business side of the culture. From medical patient advocates, to insurance brokers, NECANN has something for everyone. Not into the medical benefits of the plant? That’s ok. Vendors for Higher Ground or ArtxDash have you covered with their life style brand clothing or amazing art prints. Looks for our live event coverage in the next few days, only at The Reefer Report.


Clynk Community Partners – SPCA of Hancock County

Clynk is is partnering with community organizations to provide some great fundraising opportunities.

Today marked our second shoot in the Community Cash series for CLYNK, and found us headed north to the SPCA of Hancock County. For those of you who know us, know that we have a real soft spot for our furry, four legged friends, which made today’s shoot a very special one. The SPCA of Hancock County is CLYNK’s fourth largest account in the state and brings in almost $6,000 in donations yearly through the program. This money goes directly to feeding and supporting the many rescues at the shelter. Today we got to showcase the program, all while interacting with some adorable cats and dogs. It was really hard not to adopt one once filming had wrapped. Instead, since we were in Stephen King territory, we took a trip to see the house that was used in the 1989 film adaptation of Pet Sematary.

We’d like to take a moment to thank the folks at Garrand Partners for continuing to bring us out to work on projects like these. Being  filmmaker is one of the most rewarding jobs, and it always amazes us how many unique things we get to experience in the name of our work.

Volunteer Kathy and Emma the dog help educate us on the Cans for Kibble program at the SPCA of Hancock County.

HorrorHound Weekend – Spring 2017


Bonfire Films returns to HorrorHound Weekend with their newest film White Drift. Come see us at the HorrorHound Films table all weekend to get your copy.

Another spring break, another HorrorHound Film Weekend. Twice a year, we pack up our merch, gather our cast and crew, and drive over 1,000 miles to attend one of our favorite horror conventions. As always, we spent the weekend manning the HorrorHound films table, slinging copies of The Hanover House, Tickle and our newest short White Drift. This time actress Casey Turner joined us for autograph signings and pictures in her first ever convention appearance. On Saturday, White Drift screened prior to the new A24 release Blackcoat’s Daughter, directed by Oswald Perkins, the son of famed actor Anthony Perkins. The line was almost out the hotel door. It was such an exiting experience screening in front of a packed room. But it wasn’t all work and no play. This year we made it a point to meet the cast of one of Corey’s favorite childhood films, The Monster Squad. But Haley had her fun too, meeting Richard Brake of Doom, 31 and Games of Thrones fame.

Clynk Community Partners – Casco Bay High School

Clynk is is partnering with community organizations to provide some great fundraising opportunities.

As filmmakers, we are involved in a variety of types of productions, but the ones that leave a lasting impression on us are the ones where we make a difference in the community with our work. Our current campaign for CLYNK is one of these instances. We spent today with the students and faculty of Casco Bay High School, learning how the use CLYNK as a fundraising method for their Junior Journey program, which helps Maine based students visit Detroit, MI and learn about the community there while engaging in a documentary effort. What a truly remarkable experience for the young people of Portland!

Faculy involvement is a crucial component for the success of the Junior Journey program.

Farmer Profiles with Oakhurst Dairy

Oakhurst Dary

Getting an up close look at where our milk comes from here in Maine.

Although today was one of the coldest days of the winter, that didn’t stop the farmers of Brigeen Farms from doing their daily chores. Brigeen is one of the many farms in Southern Maine that provide milk for Oakhurst Dairy. Today, Kenn and Corey headed to the farm to get an up close and personal look at where our milk comes from. This project marked our first time working with Ethos Marketing, and it was beyond fascinating. Did you know that young calves are always looking to suckle, and if their mother isn’t around, a hand is the next best thing!

The Premiere of Restless Atlantic’s “Hyperventilate”


A still from Restless Atlantic’s newest music video “Hyperventilate” shot in an abandoned World War II battery.

Back in September, we spent an adventure filled day with the boys in The Restless Atlantic. Some where in Casco Bay, accessible only by car ferry or boat, we filmed this rad video in an abandoned fort from World War 2. We hop you enjoy it.

The Cedars Capital Campaign

The Cedars Capital Campaign was part of a fundraising model to help transition the facility into the household model of living.

Video projects that make a difference are always ones that we hold near and dear to our heart. The Cedars, an assisted living facility in Portland, ME, is trying to change the way we view housing for the elderly. As part of their Capital Campaign, The Cedars is raising the funds to help transition into the household living model. This would allow their seniors to maintain their freedom, while as the same time getting the help they need in their later years.

Along with the folks from Garrand Partners, we spent we spent four days getting to know the residence. From an artist, to a Holocaust survivor, and a doctor to a legislator, we heard stories of hope and perseverance as it applied to aging. It was four days I will never forget.

George Marcus, the campaign chairman for The Cedars, implores you to help with their transition to the household model of living.

Rise Above Fest

The world’s largest suicide prevention festival happen in our home state of Maine.

Due to the nature of production, we don’t always get all relevant information before we arrive on set. We were told, “There’s a shoot Saturday in Bangor that involves some bands”. As far as Kenn and I assumed, we were shooting some local bands, but this ended up being one of the best surprises of the year. We were shooting a music festival that’s organized by alternative rock legends Seether, and featured bands like: Volbeat, Disturbed, Killswitch Engage and Alter Bridge.

Metalcore legends Killswitch Engage get the crowd moving.

After getting checked into security, we arrived at the second stage just as Hatebreed was finishing their set. As we prepped our gear, New England Metalcore legends Killswitch Engage took this stage. Not only was this a high energy set featuring the feature of KSE’s original signer Jesse Leach, but it was one of the first opportunities we’ve had to shoot one of our favorite bands.

Once Killswitch wrapped their set, we headed towards the trailers and tour buses for some one-on-one time with our clients, Seether. The band was extremely humble, and through a series of interviews we learned that Shaun (singer) decided to start the festival after his brother committed suicide. Following the interviews, we attended a meet and greet with the band and a few hundred of their biggest fans. Several things struck me during that time. First, although this band plays hundreds of shows a year, they genuinely remembered fans that returned to see them. They shared stories of their own losses, and how much of a role the band’s music played in their healing process. I never thought I’d be so moved during an event like this.

Seether takes the stage after an afternoon of meeting emotional fans.

Once the meet and greet concluded, we followed the band to the stage where we would film performances from Seether, Volbeat and finally Disturbed. As we packed up our gear at the end of the night, Kenn and I exchanged looks and one simple line, “I can’t believe we just got paid to shoot that!”

A concert in front of 10,000 screaming fans takes on a whole new view from up here.

And That’s a Wrap on ‘White Drift’

Peter (Sean Carmichael) and Abby (Kristi Ray) get to know one another over a cup of coffee in ‘White Drift’

That’s a wrap on our newest short film ‘White Drift.’ Since I was a little kid, I’ve dreamed of making a were wolf film, and now I can say that I’ve done it. What a process! We started off day one with some exteriors, and dove right into some strong character development with actor Sean Carmichael. Sean is a fantastic actor to work with, and really commits to the part he’s playing. As luck would have it, we had a beautifully overcast day, giving us the perfect amount of diffused light.

Day two was the longest day of production. During this overnight shift, we shot an FX heavy scene with our Werewolf, which was a combination suit and head. When we first arrived on set early in the afternoon, the sky opened up and began to rain heavily. This added some nice production value to the opening shots of Sean bathing in the river. From there we moved to Director of Photography Kenn Gonneville’s Barn to shoot an FX heavy scene with Damian Maffei. Once that was a wrap, we headed back to Gorham where we would bring our wolf to life. Initially the final confrontation was set to occur outside by the barn, but with the rain increasing in intensity, we opted to move the showdown inside. Talk about luck. The aesthetics of the barn’s interior provided the right, creepy atmosphere for the film’s climax.

With the FX now in the can, days three and four were a breeze. During this time we occupied Uncle Andy’s Diner in South Portland where we continued to develop the characters of Peter and Abby. We’d like to thank Dennis Fogg, the owner of Uncle Andy’s, for being so accommodating during this process.

Rogue Mysteries Episode 1

Host Bill Brock searches for answers in the mysterious chambers of America’s Stonehenge.

Every so often, prospects seem to fall into your lap that are so unique that you’d can’t turn them down. Rogue Mysteries was one of these projects. Host Bill Brock, best known from his hit TV series on Destination America ‘Monsters Underground,’ came to us with a web series concept that would find him teaming up with various paranormal and cryptozoologists as he studies a link between ancient American sites and extraterrestrial life.

Episode one led us to the remote town of Salem, NH where we explore the ruins of America’s Stonehenge. What makes these archaeological ruins so interesting is that if viewed from above, they serve as a perfect stone calendar that helped it’s ancient occupants track the solstices and equinoxes of the year. Even more interesting is the fact that hidden in the middle of these ruins, is a sacrificial alter. Hidden behind that alter is a chamber where the shaman would sit during ceremonies, his voice projected through the stone, almost like a ‘voice of god’ that would boom over the alter.

With such unique features, Bill decided to bring in physic medium Colleen F. Costello. When Colleen reads the energy in these areas using her crystal pendulum, we discover some truths that help confirms Bill’s theories.

Physic medium Colleen F. Costello reads the energy in the Shaman’s Chamber at America’s Stonehenge.

And that’s a wrap on ‘The Witching’

Actress Joanna Clarke can’t escape the Woodland Valley Witch.

When it comes to making movies, location is everything. Over a river and through the woods we went to find the perfect spot to swap scary stories in the dark. For several consecutive days, the crew trucked almost a mile deep into the Maine woods with generators, lights, cameras and buckets full of blood. The result is a wrap around story in the vein of ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark.’

The Hanover House Blu-Ray Release

The Hanover House is now available on Blu_Ray at HorrorHound.com

Who would have thought that the self funded film we produced in 2012 would finally see a Blu_Ray release with one of the biggest names in the horror industry, HorrorHound Magazine! This weekend saw the release of the film during HorrorHound Weekend in Cincinnati. Over the course of the event, we would record interviews about the film, Haley Norman would sit on the independent filmmakers panel, we’d sign autographs, and meet some of our favorite celebrities like Nick Castle (Michael Myers, Halloween), MicK Garris (Director, Critters 2, Sleepwalkers), Danny Llyod (Danny, The Shining) and many more.

Days of the Dead: The Aftermath

As always, Days of the Dead did not disappoint. In the screening room, festival programmer Jason Hoover put together one hell of a line up. Nestled in a fantastic shorts block, Suffer the Little Children was met with gasps and cringes; our type of screening. On the convention side of things, we had a fantastic weekend filled with celebrities, new fans, and of course a reunion with longtime Bonfire family member Mark Pokora. Some of the highlights on the convention floor included meeting horror legends: Tony Todd (Candyman), Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Mark’s hero Ted Raimi (Evil Dead).

We’re Going to Days of the Dead: Atlanta

We hear Atlanta is nice this time of year… so it looks like we’ll be attending Days of the Dead this February. We’re very excited to announce that our own Corey and Haley Norman will be official guests at this year’s event. Be sure to catch their newest short film, Suffer the Little Children, as part of the 48 Hour Independent Film Festival, then be sure to stop by the Bonfire Films table. Not only will they be selling our newest DVD, The Bonfire Films Collection, but they’ll also be taking pictures and signing autographs for free.

“Suffer the Little Children” Wins Big at HorrorHound

HorrorHound_2015 Winner

“Suffer the Little Children” wins big at HorrorHound Weekend.

Hailing from the great state of Maine has it’s advantages, but it also has its disadvantages; the biggest being the fact that in order to attend some of the larger horror cons, we need to make 2,000+ mile road trips in order to get our films out to larger audiences.  But to be honest, we don’t mind.  In fact, we we kind of love them.  This past weekend, we embarked on a 19 hour drive that’s starting to feel rather familiar, from Maine to Indiana, to attend one of our favorite horror festivals, HorrorHound Weekend.  We’ve screened there in the past with The Hanover House (2014 Best Feature Winner), and Tickle, so we felt only right bringing Suffer the Little Children there for its world premiere.

Just to be included in this event, screening along films like Turbo Kid, Lake Eerie (Lance Henriksen) and Night of the Living Dead: Darkest Dawn (Danielle Harris, Tony Todd) is a huge honor, but we were blown away to find out we had been nominated for four different awards. The film itself was nominated for Best Short Film, Anne Bobby was nominated for Best Actress, Corey Norman was nominated for Best Director, and Haley Norman was nominated for Best SFX alongside industry master Robert Kurtzman.


Haley Norman standing with industry legend, and fellow Best SFX nominee Robert Kurtzman, Robert’s own Mr. Tusk, and director Corey Norman.

As always HorrorHound was not a disappointment.  As the film began at 1pm on Saturday, the screening room was nearly at full capacity, and my never were in full swing.  Twenty five minutes later, the room erupted in clapping and cheers; they loved it!  It was one of the best feelings I’ve experienced.  Immediately following the screenings, fans of the film flooded into the hallway to meet the cast and crew, including our very own Anne Bobby who made the trip in from New York.

Later that night, we again returned to the screening room for the awards ceremony.  First they announces that Anne Bobby had won Best Actress.  Our small group exploded.  We actually won.  Anne gave a fantastic acceptance speech, giving special thanks to Stephen King, without whose support this film would not have been possible.  With one award in hand, we though the night was over, but we were wrong.  It turns out we took home Best Short Film as well!

This experience could not have been any more meaningful for us.  It was worth every mile, not only to come home with several awards, but to share this experience with all the cast and crew who joined us on this trek, and with all the new friends we made in the process.  Thank you HorrorHound, we love you all!

Crimson Screen Recap

What an absolutely amazing experience.  Tommy Faircloth and Robert Zobel put on a truly remarkable film festival; one that is by filmmakers, for filmmakers.  I was luckily enough to attend in support of our short film Tickle (which would go on to win Best Short Film).  Over the course of three days I met some of the nicest, most talented, like-minded people.  If you get a free minute, do yourself a favor and check out the films of Jason Tostevin (‘Til Death, I Owe You), Christopher Moore (Disengaged, Foodie, Knob Goblins), Pablo Absento (Shi) and James Christopher (Quad X).  You will not be dissapointed.

Some of the highlights of the weekend included: meeting special effects artist Tony Rosen (Creator of the Annabelle doll), the afterparty at The Sparrow, laughing my ass off at the hilariously funny Hell Town and seeing Valley of the Sasquatch, starring my newest pal Jason Vail.
