Jason Paluck to Edit Abandoned

Jason Paluck

The Devil’s Five Visual Effects Artist Jason Paluck (A.K.A. editingninja) will be the Editor of Terry R. Wickham’s upcoming film Abandoned.  Terry says, “Jason did such a marvelous job creating all the visual elements and Editing the Teaser Trailer for The Devil’s Five (which you can view on this website or YouTube) and I love working with him.  We teamed up for the infomercial for Super Punch and Kick Target.  He’s got such a positive attitude that gels with the way I work.  What many people don’t know is that Jason also supplied most of the prop guns used for the production of The Devil’s Five, so he’s a man of many talents.

The truth is Jason was indirectly the catalyst for the story for what would become Abandoned.  He invited me to go see a location, which he was photographing a model at.  While making the trip the story just surfaced so naturally that I told him what was coming to me and explained him that I needed to make another film when one of the original directors left the project.  I told him I wanted to do something that was really short and could be shot quickly, for as little money as possible.  I asked if he wanted to join forces to make the film and he did.


Because this film is our creative partnership, I passed the script by him and even incorporated his feedback on little changes within the screenplay.  We’ve also talked about what we plan to do with color correction to make the movie stronger and give it a more contrast versus the other films I’ve made for Devil’s Five.

Jason is not only going to be responsible how Abandoned comes to together in post, but he’s the one who had a the cool idea for what the video vixen model “Billie Winters” should wear in the important middle sequence of Abandoned and even suggested ideas for the costuming threatening presence that comes into the film.  Also he created the Teaser Poster for Abandoned (above) as well so he’s just the real deal.”

Make-Up Artist Sarah R. Cruz returns for Abandoned


Stash/XXistence Teaser Trailer/The Devil’s Five veteran Make-Up Artist Sarah R. Cruz will be back as the Make-Up Artist for Abandoned.


Terry R. Wickham says, “I’m ecstatic to have Sarah back for my next film.  Not only is she as sweet as she is beautiful, but her dedication goes beyond her craft into the fabric of the production team.  I believe she’s been a major asset in helping to put the actors at ease because of how good she makes them look.  That can’t be underestimated.  It’s extremely comforting to know that I don’t have to worry about how the cast going to look.  All hair and make-up work will be in Sarah’s talented hands, so it’s one less thing for me to worry about and that’s a big deal when you are directing a movie.


Sarah has volunteered in helping get cast & crew to the shoots, which has honestly been more than a huge help.  I also appreciate that she loves horror movies and carries that enthusiasm into her work.  Sarah is also going to assist Michelle Rickert with the Make-Up Effects, so I feel extremely lucky to have her.”


Abandoned has found it’s Production Sound Mixer/Sound Designer


Walter Maguire will be the Production Sound Mixer for the upcoming suspense burner Abandoned.  Born in Philadelphia.  Walter studied at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, where he earned Bachelors in Sound production.  He has been in the industry professionally for 4 years and is a full time freelance sound mixer.


Terry Wickham says, “I really put a lot of stock into anyone who has a deep passion for what they do.  Add on top of that if they have a interest in horror films and knowledge of the genre that comes as a added bonus.  Walter displayed both to me when we discussed the film.  After sharing my vision for the movie he wanted to be part of it, which bodes well for this production.  He even had a great idea about recording the movie in true 5.1 Surround Sound.  I can’t wait to work with him.”
