Currently in production is John Harrison and the Music of Creepshow, an audio documentary on the life and music of John Harrison, director of Frank Herbert’s Dune, and long-time friend and colleague of George A. Romero.
Known in recent years for his film and television work, John started out his career as an actor and musician. He spent four years on the road with R&B legend, Roy Buchanan, playing bass guitar (recording four albums for Polydor), and producing his own feature film, Effects, in 1980 with friends Dusty Nelson and Pasquale Buba.
Through the 1980′s John worked alongside George Romero as an assistant-director and composer on Creepshow and Day of the Dead, later directing Tales from the Darkside: The Movie.
In the last decade and a half, John has branched out on his own, directing and adapting numerous telemovies, including the epic Frank Herbert’s Dune for the Sci-Fi channel. His most recent project involved adapting and directing Book of Blood, a feature film based on the short stories of British horror author, Clive Barker.
John Harrison and the Music of Creepshow will explore the exciting times in which the Creepshow soundtrack was created and is due for completion October 2012.
