In a world gone crazy with movies, TV shows and books, featuring far too many beautiful vampires, what if you were a real one, who couldn’t get hired to “be” one?
Vamped Out is a weekly series featuring 6 installments from a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Elliot Finke. During the spring and summer of 2009, Elliot shot what he believed was the first documentary of an actual vampire. While in postproduction, he went missing.
The subject of “Vamped Out”, Alowisus Hewson, is a 35 year old struggling actor who lives with his charming girlfriend, Marie, a 33 year old nurse at a local blood bank. We also meet and get to know Al’s manager, 27 year old Billy Goldborg, who lives and works out of Al’s guest house.
Oh, and Alowisus claims to be a 172 year old vampire.
Vamped Out was created and written by Jason Antoon and Kevin Pollak and marks the directorial debut of Pollak. His cinematographer and editor on this series is Academy Award (Visual Effects,“Titanic”) winning genius Robert Legato, who, aside from providing visual effects for “Titanic,” “The Aviator,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “The Departed” and “Shutter Island,” also directed Second Unit on them all.
