“2” was filmed earlier this year at various Biddeford locations, including the Riverdam Millyard, Main Street, and the 3-D’s Variety Store. Over 200 zombie extras helped create the eerie atmosphere of the film. “We were really surprised how many people from all walks of life came out to be zombies in our film, all the community support we received was amazing. We’re very thankful”, said Executive Producer John Lane.
On October 27th, the film will be shown in its entirety. The filmmakers will speak before and after the film. Those attending are asked to come dressed as “Zombies” for the pre-movie “Zombie Fashion Show”. Prizes will be given for a variety of themes including “Best Zombie” “Best Zombie Couple” and more. “You don’t have to come as a zombie, but when are you going to get another chance to come to a film’s premiere as a zombie? We really want to make a night of it”, said Producer Olin Smith.
“2” stars C. James Roberts and Molly W.B. Roberts as two survivors of a bio-terrorist attack that has turned everyone around them into Zombies. “We really can’t wait for the general public to see the film that we have been working on for six months, to see the effort of a horror community coming together in New England and what we can produce.”, said Co-Writer/Director Andy Davis.
“2” is a feature-length film produced by Olin Smith of Motion Media, Executive Produced by John Lane of John Lane Films, and co-written and Directed by Andy Davis of Emptyhouse Film.

22 May 2007: "The Dark" Resurfaces!
| For the past few weeks we have been gearing up for a site redesign. Last week while clearing out some old files I happened across something quite interesting. What I found was the VHS rip I created a few years ago for one of Andy and Scott's early projects "The Dark". This film was not only my first involvement with independent film, but also my first foray into designing a website for someone other than myself. |
"The Dark" was made in a couple of days over the summer of 2002 for $700. The digital copy that I made came from a VHS version that I had received, and was split into 10 files.
Now that the files have been relocated, I have uploaded them to YouTube for everyone to enjoy. Here are the links :
