DRAG - 1993
By Mark Pavia
Starring Ellie Cahill (Victoria), Jack O'Donnell (Ted), and
Marty Sanderson (Steven)
The short film that got writer and director, Mark Pavia, an audience with King.
Stephen King adores this. Not much more I can add to that, except to point out that DRAG got Mark Pavia his first feature film gig, Stephen King's THE NIGHT FLIER. In the realm of Stephen King movies, that's one of my all time favorites.
What about the folks who helped Mark create his vision?
Sound Editor, Cory Coken was already established, having worked on HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER back in 1986, THE BORROWER in 1991, and SEVERED TIES in 1992.
There were plenty of n00bs though, and some of them launched from DRAG, including,
Actor Jack O'Donnell (Ted), who went on to co-write with Mark on THE NIGHT FLIER.
Producer and Editor Daniel Curran went on to find regular work in television "Reality" game shows.
Philip Tallman (Music) went on to work as music editor for movies like THE CROW, HERCULES: The Legendary Journeys (TV), XENA: Warrior Princess (TV), and THE HUNGER GAMES.
Make-Up Artist, Curt Chiarelli went on to stop-motion animation work on James and the Giant Peach as well as Robot Chicken (TV).
Cinematographer Mario Fiore went on to work as DP on Michael Bay's THE ISLAND and James Cameron's AVATAR, for which Mario won an Oscar.
