Zombie Film

Ladies and Gents!

Im finally finished making my short zombie film. A few more days and distribution channels will be set up, and we should be good to go. In the meantime, I'm preparing short stories, and the webpage for the domain that I've set up to market it.

I hope you guys enjoy my blog so far.

In the next few months I'll hopefully have a Charity Foundation set up for the Rufus Rose house.

Corpsewood Pictures

Yes, two days late, most certainly I apologize for that. And they aren't anything really spectacular, so keep a look out for my future pictures from the second go.

When I spotted this, I knew I was close. Summerville is just five miles south of the haunted locale. However what they dont tell you, is Summerville is about 65 miles away from this sign, or was it 66.6? Either way, I knew it was a good sign.

Okay, bad puns aside, Im still amazed at our ability to hide and sequester away some of the most interesting places I've ever heard of. Trion, the nearby town, has gone to great lengths to reduce traffic to the house. But that didn't stop me!

Local law enforcement have driven these stakes up, blocking our way into the Manor.

Its unfortunate though, as the decency of the people of Trion, the efforts of their Law Enforcement, and a rain storm couldn't stop me. But a black bear certainly did.

I will return.

Corpsewood Trip

Hey all! Finally made it to Corpsewood! What an interesting...journey it was to get there. I did it over the weekend, and so far, I am interested to go back out. Unfortunately, I didn't get many pictures of the ruins themselves. But I have a good reason.

The drive itself only takes about $10 USD in petrol, and is about two hours north of Atlanta. If you know what highways your sticking too, it actually isn't to hard to get to Summerville, or even to Corpsewood Manor itself.

You have to drive on an Abandoned Road, for a good few miles, up a mountain side, and the pavement quickly gives way to gravel and dirt. As the road is supposed to be closed, you have to find a way to either hide your car, or have a driver who can drive back and pick you up after you've done your investigation.

When you get to the spot, you'll see the town has erected three concrete pillars, totally blocking passage to the manor. From there, you will have to proceed by foot.

I noticed alot of Shot Gun Shells, and just as I was cresting the road towards the Manor Ruins, I saw what was either a big dog, or a small bear, in the treeline. I only had a knife on me, so I made my way back to the car, and am now determined to return with a full crew and a gun, to do a more thorough investigation.

I'll post what few pictures I got tommorrow! Stay tuned!

Dropping the Bed and Breakfast Vid

I've decided, after weighing the options in my head, to not proceed any further with the Bed and Breakfast video. As such, I have begun to work on the Zombie Short Film we plan to release this summer. Stay tuned!

Wow...One Month

This has been the longest break I've taken from this blog since I've started it. I will be the first to admit, that it is very hard to come up with fresh new content to post about. But, Im getting my refund very soon, so I will definately have more things to post.

I'm planning one big trip into Canton, and then up into Rome, to get some pictures and stock footage of both Hell's Church and Corpsewood Manor. I recently took a trip down to Savannah...totally forgot to bring my camera though. At least I know my car can make it.

I'm very excited as I'm finally back in school. Things seem to be turning around fo me! I'm still undecided whether or not I will pursue the Village Inn Bed and Breakfast film. Its now seeming as if it would be a monumental waste of time and money.

I will call them and make appropriate contacts and let you guys know.

But most definately, the Corpsewood Manor shoot will go well. Also, if anyone knows anyone who owns the book "Murder at Corpsewood" please let me know. Im looking to purchase it, and would be willing to pay a premium.

I've decided, in my wisdom, that I will pay paying the full amount for the formation of the Four Rose Charity myself. Im setting aside $200 a month for six months, if possible, so that I can reach that point. However, if you would like to contact me about donations, or selling the book, my email is below.


Thanks guys!

Short Film Contest

Hello Gentle Readers. Today, I am anting to go ahead and announce the first annual short film contest "Two-Minute Screamer; 2010", this event is sponsored by Crimson Star Entertainment.

Okay, so what is it, you ask? Well this weekend, I was watching two zombie movies, in an attempt to stimulate my creative mind, so that I could work on my novel. And it worked. Hopefully, this week, I will write another 10,000 to 15,000 words, god willing. But those movies were the mega-Hollywood Blockbuster, Dawn of the Dead and the low-budget Zombie Apocolypse.

However, this did get me thinking. How about I make a low budget film, as scary as I could, given items around the house? Well, I'vedecided to do just that. Only, I've decided to let you, the community be apart of this.

The contest officially starts tommorrow, March 1st, 2010. The deadline for entries is March 15th, 2010. This gives film-makers 15 days to come up with their short films.

What sort of guidelines are there? Well, its low-budget, and by low-budget, I mean $0.00, you must produce your work with only those things you find around your house, and using volunteers. The only exception to this is petrol money to reach a location for shooting, and money for Film, DV Cords, Batteries. Etc.

The film must be of the horror genre, and can only be two minutes long. Once you submit your work, you agree that we have first right to publish, which will last for 90 days after your submission.

Okay, so those are the rules. What does the winner get? He recieves a signed copy of our Four Rose Short Film, and a spot on our main site to publish his film. This spot will last, at a minimum, 90 days, and at most, a year, as decided by CSE. In addition, you also recieve up to three links to websites of your choice. Our website has PageRank of 3; and a very targetted audience of gamers and other unique parties.

So, if you are ready, email your questions, or your submission here. And remember, purchases of the Four Roses Short Film go to the formation of our Four Rose Charity Foundation. Thanks for your support!

Good Luck!

Four Rose Foundation

So, thats the name we've given the charity organization so far. We are up to $10; but we need $1200, and thats just to form the organization itself. But dont worry, I will be stepping back in to pay most of this in the coming months.

However, if you want to help, you can. And I know most of you are rolling your eyes, thinking I'm going to ask for a donation.

How about this?

Buy the DVD version of our movie here, the proceeds go towards our charity oganization, and will help keep us making movies and investigating these mysterious, historical places.

Thanks so much for helping!

Village Inn Bed and Breakfast

Hey Ghost Fans!

So I went ahead and did some initial photo-shoot of the Village Inn Bed & Breakfast, in Stone Mountain Georgia. The Village Inn is a historic building in Stone Mountain, dating back to 1830. This makes it one of the Oldest buildings in the Metro Area (Buildings on the east side tend to be older on average).

There are many stories of hauntings and creepy noises in the night. Im currently discussing with the owner to get some more information, so that I may begin shooting.

And here is a nearby church...

Friday, February 12, 2010


Also, I'm looking for new sponsors for this website. We get some steady Traffic. The movies feed good traffic to the site.

If your interested in sponsoring this website, hit me up by email:

New Happenings

Alright, so I know there hasn't been too much content up here in the past week or so. I'm making movement towards getting filming done on my next project. If you have been keeping up, you know that I'm planning to film at Hell's Church in Canton.

However, recent developements have spurred another movie. I've recently recieved permission from the Owner of Stone Mountain Bed & Breakfast, one of the oldest buildings in the Metro Area (1830), to conduct an investigation and have the building as the centerpiece to my next movie. Hopefully negotiations don't flop, and shooting will get started in about two weeks.

I also got news that the proof of the movie with blooper reel has arrived at CreateSpace. Another four weeks, and I should have a working product ready for distribution. It will be a great way for you guys to contribute to the Rufus Rose Fund, and get something in return.

If you dont know, I've started the Rose Fund to help save the rose house and alleviate some of the poverty here in Atlanta. Currently, our first goal is to raise enough money to incorporate our charity as a 501C(3) organization. A task, at this point, that will require about 1200 USD. We have currently raised about $20 USD.

So we definately need your help!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010


Oi, meant to post last night, but dealing with a bit of Google madness. They deactivated my account for invalid activity. So we have less ads, replaced by another company.

Anyhow, I've decided our next film project will be about Hell's Church in Canton, Georgia. Its doubtful that we will be able to get inside, but hopefully I will be able to pull up alot of information.

If your interested in seeing our previous film project, click here.

Rufus Rose Charity

Just a small update. Today I'm out to look for some more content, hopefully I will make another post before the day is done. But I want to keep you guys up to date with what is happening with the Charity.

My riginal estimation of required amount of money just to file my 501c3 organization was very much off. After research and shopping around, Ive decided to use legal zoom. However, even legal zoom requres $595; plus I have to set aside another $500 for filing fees and such.

So the total, I'm lookig to raise abot $1200 USD in order to get the charity organized. I will accept any and all help, from 50c to as much as you would like to give. I will be keeping track of all donations seperately, and I will include them as the first set of contributions to the charity, upon email request:

If you don't know our mission statemen, look back through the blog, and you'll find it.

We are currently at $12.95...if another 100 people gave as much, we would have all the money we needed. Even if you aren't sure, and think its a scam, I assure its not. Look through the content I've provided, and maybe give a small donation based on that!

Corpsewood Manor Documentary

Got some great new information about the manor, and have located on Google maps what I believe is the site. However, I will depend alot upon the directions of locals when we get up there and prepare for shooting. That is, after all, the goal.

Second movie looked like it was going to be about Hell's Church, but as of yet, I haven't found enough information about the Church to make it appealing to me. So I might just go ahead, go for the gusto, and do Corpsewood Manor.

I'm thinking, if I can ride up there myself and get some photos and footage, it might do well. Then I can do most of the filming down here in Atlanta.

Anyone have any opinions? And don't forget to donate to the Four Rose fund!

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

Thanks for helping!

Just a small update, the ball is starting to roll on the charity, we've already raised the first $12 towards incorporation of our 501c(3) organization. But thats still $188 left that we have to make up for!

We really need your help, if you have any capacity to donate, please do!

After we get enough contributions, we will incorporate, and use a seperate paypal account to organize contributions.

I think you in advance for your contributions!

Crimson Star Updated

Okay, so finally added The Roman's sculptures to the main blog. After getting a second NATT from a magazine publisher for the same story; I've decided to release it online. Its $2.99, and will be sent to you as a PDF file. Its a very good story, but was far too niche to be acceptable in a magazine. However, I think the second story I sent out, will probably be accepted. Its much more artistic and much more personal.

To see some of Ed's Art, click here.

To buy my short story, click here.

The story itself is high fantasy, about a criminal waging a one-man war against an empire. But his reasons for doing so are not clear, as the investigator who arrives is further confused by his actions. Its a great beginning for a new series!

The setting is Eavton, the same as my Knight Spectre Comic, an agrarian nation of halflings and men headed by an all-powerful Emperor who shares divine lineage. A proto-typical "Righteous" nation, their society is well-structured and organized, to the extent of having huge social controls on their people. However, now, a new threat is growing in the North.

Like the idea? Read the short story. Soon I will be starting a novel and a sourcebook for the setting!

Here are some previews of his sculptures, for you guys to look at online.

Interesting, right?

Email me here if your interested in buying.

Public Marketing Note

On Google, we are #1 on Ghosts of Atlanta Blog when searched. And #6 on Atlanta Ghost Blogs. By far the latter is much more searched, but probably by only maybe a 100 or so, or more or month.

However, we are the highest on the list that is an actual blog!

Rose Charity

This is a repost from another blog of mine. Just attempting to get some coverage of it. If you are interested in contacting me, please don't hesitate. If you want to support us, but have no money or skills, subscribe to the Youtube Account of the video listed below, and tell your friends. Tell your friends about this blog!!!

Just putting up a blog post before I return to trying to continue writing my novel. If you've been keeping up with this blog you know about the novel, or, in so much as I will tell you. However, if you are new, the Novel is going to be an apolitical view of an outbreak of a deadly aggressive disease in a special world. There is another great twist, but I don't wanna give that away. I think though, it should have some positive response from the publishing industry.

If you like this idea, please comment or stumble this blog!

However, as to other news, I'm in the process of incorporating my own charitable organization. Our mission statement is to preserve certain historical landmarks in downtown Atlanta (notably the Rose House; see the film we made), provide some economic benefit to the community, and donate any proceeds from the process to charity.

Using the funds raised, we will not only start a cultural awareness campaign for the Rose House (website), but we will attempt to buy or lease the home, restore it, and commercialize it. Commercial ideas include a downtown Ghost Tour; A Bar; and a special option for renting rooms in the 'haunted' house. All proceeds from these actions, minus a reservation for expansion and emergency of 30%, shall go to local Atlanta Foodbanks and Homeless Shelters.

So we could definately use any support that you could give!
If you want to contribute at this early stage, in either administration or a direct contribution, email me here.

Im definately looking for someone who can offer some help in the formation of a 501(c) charitable organization.

This same email is my paypal address, should you wish to make a direct contribution. This is my personal account, and any money gained this way is earmarked directly for use in forming the 501(c) organization. After that, we will start a seperate paypal, etc, and should have full information about what is and is not a tax deduction.

Currently, I'm looking to $250 for the use in formation of the corporation. I will update this blog as that becomes reality.

Pleasant Grove Cemetary

Pleasant Grove

As you can see above, this week's field trip was to a small cemetary, located in Stone Mountain, GA, hidden behind a Days Inn and a Krystals. There are maybe four dozen plots, and the wole cemmetary is about 100 feet by 100 feet, if that. Most of the grave markers are dated around 1925.

Unfortunately I don't have a K2 meter anymore, so any further observation was stopped there. However many local legends say that this cemetary is known for producing 'Orbs' on film. However, after a few pictures, none developed.

Not having a significant backstory or any potential data to point to a haunting, there is a high shadow of doubt as to whether this place is Haunted. In truth, it probably isn't. Just another local legend.

Also, as a final note, I think that sign was put up recently, by a private citizen. It also appears that the font is comic sans. :D

Rufus M. Rose Fund: Protect Our Culture; Protect Our People.

As promised, I would like to deliver to you the readers, a summation of the Rufus M. Rose fund, and what donating to it will do.

Our foundation will be set up so that we can recoup the costs of the production of the film, increase cultural awareness, and support the community directly on Peachtree Street, in Atlanta Ga.

To accomplish this, I have a list of several specific tasks that any monies raised will be used for.

Firstly; 20% shall be set aside for taxes and government fees. I'm not sure what all this will entail yet, though if you woud like a more indepth explanation, as soon as I have the info, I an email you. Thus 1 out of every 5 USD raised will be set aside for taxes.

Secondly; the first $200 raised will go towards the creation of a 501(c) or other non-profit organization. Our specific goals will be both the preservation of the Rufus M Rose house, and the revitalization of the local economy here in Atlanta. As soon as I find out more about this, I will post an update.

Next, we will recoup all of our costs for production of the first short film, which are in total $240 USD; plus a series of 'bonus payments' of $50 to everyone who was involved in the film. This is a grand total of $590 USD.

After this, we will set aside another $300 USD to be used for future productions, to include a revamped; remade version of the short film, but not limited in scope to that.

Lastly, a $150 amount will be used to start and promote a website dedicated entirely to the Rose House and the Rose Legacy.

After this, we will openly announce future steps. Our only two steps beyond this, would be to purchase the House itself; and repair it and put it into use as a stop, guest-house, and small bar on Peactree Street. An adjoining ghost tour would also help to employ many. However this is in the far future, and is no doubt, outside of the range of 501 Nonprofit Status. However, I am supposing the 501 could make a loan, or donate to the company that does such; because that company would be protecting the legacy of the Rse House.

Lastly, in the event of profit from any venture from this movie, the proceeds minus any reservations for expansion/emergency, will be donated to Atlanta Homeless Shelters and Foodbanks. As a Ghost Tour Guide, I found one of my greatest sources of information was from the transient/homeless population. Even if they weren't 'working' per say, they provided a benefit to me, and I dont think any person should go without food or shelter (Here or the World Around).

So, in one fell swoop, trying to protect the Rose House, Stimulate the Economy, and provide for those who are most vulnerable among us.

Four Roses DVD

Yup, you read it right. In order to inspire people to 'donate' to our 'Four Roses' investigation fund, we are now selling DVDs of our Four Roses short film (click if you haven't seen it before). In addition, we will include a funny bloopers reel for you guys to watch.

Donation? $5.00; and you get a home-made DVD copy, and a certificate of authenticity and thanks for support.

Want something a little more concrete? We will soon have an actual dvd package on Amazon, which will be complete with album artwork and the works. However, it will cost $10.00; and the only extra content you will get will be the artwork.

Interested in donating? Email me at

Later today I will post another bit on this blog explaining our 'Four Rose' fund.

Wierd Georgia

Picked up a few good ideas for future episodes and sections on this blog from a book titled Wierd Georgia, part of the Wierd USA series. You can likely find it at your local library.

Of course, I've got to drum readership up for this blog. So, a bit of a contest.

Should my 3rd Short Film be about Dungeness or Corpsewood Manor? Leave a comment, tommorrow, I will be featuring a review of Dungeness, sometime soon I'm going to rehash my old post about Corpsewood Manor.

Thanks to all My Readers

Thanks guys for viewing the Four Roses Documentary. Its doing well, not spectacular, but well. Im currently editing a blooper reel, which will be sold, along with the public release version, to help us cope with costs in production. If you still haven't seen it, here is the link:

Right now, I'm building up some idea about Hell's Church in Canton. My next goal is to make a two-parter, covering Hell's Church and maybe the Kennesaw House. So, please, stay tuned with me for that much!

Haunted Atlanta

The series is doing quite well, in my opinion. We've brokered about 100 hits in the last 24 hours, which is fairly good, considering that its a very niche subject, and not specifically affiliated with entertainment or health. If you haven't seen the film yet, click the link below.

Four Roses

If you have, dont worry, Ive got some great new information. Firstly, I ask that if you take interest in my blog, please subscribe or follow it. And I love comments.

Anyhow, the next destination for my little blog, and a future 'Haunted Atlanta' short film? Canton. Hell's Church. Enough said!

So stay tuned, and hopefully, within the next week, I can scout out the location!

Haunted Atlanta, the Rufus M Rose Story!

Monday, January 4, 2010

Shooting the Documentary

Well, the project has been tentatively titled "Haunted Atlanta: Rufus M. Rose House", and its definately turning into a worthwhile project. I have to admit that for the longest time, I had been dreaming of doing something similiar to this with many stories on this blogsite, the most interesting story to shoot, of course, being Corpsewood Manor. However, without a support network of friends and people to help me keep on track, I would, in retrospect, set the project back and back.

Then came CSE. As I started to expand CSE into something respectable, one of my up and coming project managers came at me with a request. He wanted to shoot a short film. He suggested we do a mini-documentary on a 'haunted' location around Atlanta, because he remembered me mentioning he project.

So we literally decided in the course of a day, to tackle the project. Within a week, we were casting and doing our first shoot. This weekend, we did two more days of shooting, some really guerilla stuff. Freezing our asses off. But we have a real vision for this project, and I think it is going to be fantastic.

But, I've got yall some promotional pictures of the Rufus Rose House! Enjoy!
