Camera rolled for the first time on the set of "The Blood Shed" on Sunday, March 12, 2006. And with a stunt, special effects, and dozens of camera set-ups, we still made our day in about 9 hours!

"The Blood Shed" by writer/director Alan Rowe Kelly (I'll Bury You Tomorrow), will be a segment of the upcoming feature-length horror film tentitively titled Hung by a Thread. "The Blood Shed," tells the tale of a strange backwoods family who must conceal the skeletons in their closet... or their shed, to be precise! Kelly will also star in the film, along with co-stars Zoe Daelman Chlanda (I'll Bury You Tomorrow), Terry West (Flesh for the Beast), Mike Lane (The Tenement), Jerry Murdock (I'll Bury You Tomorrow), Katherine O'Sullivan (I'll Bury You Tomorrow), Susie Adriensen (Movi Goz), Brian Juergens (Two Story House), Kane Manera (Dead Serious), Sandra Schaller (I'll Bury You Tomorrow) and Joshua Nelson (Strange Things Happen at Sundown).

Filmmakers Rachel Gordon (Bench Warmers) and Jeremiah Kipp (The Christmas Party) join Brian Jude as Producer and Associate Producer respectively. Bart Mastronardi is the Director of Photography, Stolis Hadjicharalambous is the editor, and music will be composed by Tom Burns.

Tyler Tharpe (Freak, Return in Red) will commence shooting his segment "Crack - Then Split" in April, and Michael T. Schneider (Mordum, Opening The Mind) will begin his segment in May. Additional footage tying all three stories together will be shotlater in the year. The film will be distributed by Heretic Films.
