Actor, Director and Playwright, Gregory Blair, was part of the Snipler: 30 Second Pitch category at the 2012 New Media Film Festival. Sniplers – snippets of a trailer – are 30 second spots that are the stepping stones to get films funded, made and viewed in a longer format. Blair screened the trailer for his upcoming horror film, Deadly Revisions, initially titled Scare Tactics. Deadly Revisions stars Bill Oberst Jr. as, Grafton Torn, a horror writer and filmmaker who mysteriously wakes up from a coma having no recollection of the events that lead to his coma.
Blair’s prospective backers were so impressed with his pitch at the New Media Film Festival, they decided to fund the feature length version of Deadly Revisions. The film began pre-production in 2012 and had its world premiere in Los Angeles in January of 2013. The film was also Blair’s directorial debut. Deadly Revisions was received positively by critics and received multiple awards including Best Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Film Awards, Best Screenplay at the Terror Film Festival, and Best Picture at the Matchflick.com Flicker Awards.
