About Deathblow Productions
In 2007 I founded Deathblow Productions. I've written/directed several music videos & short films, all of which I take great pride in.
I'm graced by the varied talents of many collaborators, new and old. Because of them, our films are unique, dark and notably inspired. -Ryan Oliver
Lily Horn as Yvonne LeMay
"A ghost is someone who hasn't made it - in other words, who died, and they don't know they're dead. So they keep walking around and thinking that you're inhabiting their - let's say, their domain. So they're aggravated with you." --S. Browne
The ghost of 10-year-old Yvonne LeMay has been anchored to the trunk of a 1950 Fleetline Deluxe for over half a century. Displaced from her previous, quaint country setting, the change in car ownership doesn't sit well with her as she is displaced to a custom car clubhouse in the city. Frustrated with her new digs, the collective of Gearheads find themselves in the throes of a deadly temper tantrum!
'Restoration' is a ghost story/car culture mashup that celebrates the essence of garage culture. And to do it, we're using the genuine article, real bike and car builders from the streets of Chicago alongside some incredible actors.

We'll be shooting in a real full functioning garage, it's a special and sacred place to many, the very existence of it launched the idea for this project. A former brewery, then a factory, it now hosts a sprawl of some truly remarkable bikes and cars.
I can't wait to begin this project. With your help, we can make this realization as vicious and artfull as possible.
