Launching the official youtube channel!
The year is 1948 and the United States has a new enemy, The Phantom Shadow. This dark figure has diabolical plans for captured scientist, Dr. Hammond, and his War Department weapons of mass destruction. Upon the Phantom Shadow launching a treacherous missile attack on key locations in the United States, the government takes action.
There is only one man to call, Agent 236, an elite government agent. Agent 236 has been dispatched to launch a rescue mission. Of course, nothing ever goes as planned. Our hero finds himself on the way to Hammond Castle, Dr. Hammond's research facility on a remote island. The Phantom Shadow's trap has been sprung.
Along the adventure, Agent 236 is befriended by a spunky, sarcastic gas station attendant who just happens to have pinup girl good looks. She also just happens to be looking for action, and excitement. Luckily, Agent 236 is the man of her dreams. Agent 236 puts the station attendant and her tow truck into service in pursuit of the Phantom Shadow.

The Official Movie Page:
Although The Rocketeer did not make money at the box office, it was definitely an inspiration for Curse of the Phantom Shadow.
The trailer for my short subject film, Enthusiasm Abounds, has been posted. This film, which is currently being submitted to festivals, is an homage to George Orwell's 1984, Ray Bradbury, and Isaac Asimov. A true dystopian style future. Anthony Burkhalter
Although not related to Curse of the Phantom Shadow, I did get an opportunity to direct another film in 2017. This is the poster for Enthusiasm Abounds. A film that is currently being submitted to festivals. Anthony Burkhalter who played the police officer in Curse of the Phantom Shadow stars in this short subject scifi film.
In order to expedite post production on Curse of the Phantom Shadow. I am investigating crowdfunding. I am looking for any/all advice and insight on this topic. Particular areas of interest: Indiegogo vs. Kickstarter, which movie blogs would be a good venue to promote, and ideas to generate publicity. Money raised would be used for visual fx, color grading, and all costs associated with the film score. (If we were to raise enough cash, I would like to book a symphony orchestra to perform the score.)
Hi everyone. Work continues behind the scenes. I am in the process of reaching out to media outlets. Does anyone out there have access to a movie blog, where I could make an inquiry? There are some not-yet-revealed materials I would like to use as the basis of a dialog with movie blogs. If anyone has any leads, information, or ideas, please let us know.
Curse of the Phantom Shadow may be gearing up for a fundraiser in the near future. Although we are in post, visual fx are very expensive. I am happy to report that we have a killer visual fx team that includes assistance from the teams responsible for: Iron Sky, ScyFy's Battlestar Galactica, Robert Rodriguez's Sin City, and so forth. If you wish to participate in the fundraising process (helping to get the word out, or have ideas), please contact us. We are very excited about lifting the veil of the project and showing the world what our visual fx team can do.
