The video nasty comic book writer Mario Covone has started shooting his directorial debut. Titled Overtime, the film follows a teacher as he works late one night at school. Unbeknownst to him, he is being watched by a sinister presence.
Overtime will explore timely issues like violence in schools, as well as the threat of media scaremongering, so expect a thought-provoking message deeply nestled into the film’s horror heart.
Overtime is a Miracle World Production, written & directed by Covone and produced by Jack Burman. Director of Photography is Oliver Mackinlay, Special Make Up FX by Sophie Goodman, Sound Design by Chris Daniels, 1st AD is Rebecca Hudson, Key Grip is Niall Lomax, Art Director is Bethany Clark, and Costume Designer is Siobhan Penn.
The poster artwork (to be revealed soon) is being designed by horror industry legend Graham Humphreys. Humphreys also painted the covers for Covone’s Video Nasty comic book run.
