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

Ghost girl in Trunk

 

 "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

 

About "Restoration"

Poster for "Restoration"

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.

Cast & Characters:

(Introducing) Lily Horn as Yvonne LeMay

Brant Mccrea (Chicago Rot) as Sonny Ray

William J Norris (Re-Animator, The Pit and the Pendulum) as Leander Humes

Molly Brennan as Missy Bitters

Brittish Billy as English Will

Norbert "Bobby Sox" Caillouet as Auto Otto

Joel "Jew McCool" Rabb as Johnny Aces

Denis McQuinn as Big Caesar

Turk Finnigan as Late Payment Mike

Also Featuring:  Mitchell Tannahill, Ryan Lindstrom and Many More!

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.

Please donate any amount that you can and spead the word!
