Independent horror movie shooting in Capital Region woods

STEPHENTOWN – Cameras keep rolling in the Capital Region. NewsChannel 13 told you last week how the Showtime show "Billions" was filming in Albany.

This week, an independent film crew is putting the finishing touches on a horror movie in Rensselaer County.

They may not bring the big budgets that New York City or Hollywood production crews enjoy, but independent filmmakers are equally enamored with what the Capital Region has to offer.

"From the film commissioner in Albany or if you’ve got to get a permit somewhere, people are exited and ready to go, and just everybody wants to make a movie," said Cinematographer Jim Powers.

He has been working with writer-director Sean Cranston for years now.

"This is my third full-length film. I have a film, ‘Highlighters’ on Amazon Prime and another film, ‘Redville’ on Troma," said Cranston.

The whole production team is made up of Capital Region natives. Their latest project, "The Full Moon Fathers" does more than dabble in the horror genre. When NewsChannel 13 caught up with the crew deep in the woods of Stephentown recently, we found actresses being doused in fake blood.

Learn what the movie is about by watching the video of Jerry Gretzinger’s story.
