EXCLUSIVE: The genre-leaning production company founded as The Woodshed in 2010 by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller has undergone an identity change. The outfit has been rebranded SpectreVision and has also added a music division, teaming with Redbird Music Management’s Tim Husom to form SpectreVision Management. The name change reflects a wider scope as SpectreVision expands into music while continuing to build a film production portfolio.
“As our company began to expand its horizons, the name SpectreVision served to exemplify more our broadened platform: technology capturing the ineffable,” said Elijah Wood. Among SpectreVision’s current slate are horror-comedy Cooties starring Alison Pill and Rainn Wilson; Toad Road, which is set for a theatrical/VOD release this year by Artsploitation; and Iran-set vampire love story A Girl Walks Home At Night which is in post-production.
On the music side Husom will work to connect composers with filmmakers as President of the Music Management Division. He brings with him clients Dustin O’Halloran, Hauschka, Jóhann Jóhannsson and A Winged Victory for the Sullen. Jóhannsson recently scored the Hugh Jackman drama Prisoners and Toronto-bound crime drama McCanick, directed by SpectreVision’s Waller and written by Noah. O’Halloran (Like Crazy, Marie Antoinette) and partner Adam Wiltzie together comprise A Winged Victory For The Sullen, which was commissioned to compose original music for contemporary dance production Atomos premiering in October in London.
Said Noah: “We’re equally interested in the state of music, and some of the most brilliant and accomplished names in the world of neo-classical and progressive music today are virtually unknown by people who make films. These are artists operating in the space created by giants like Phillip Glass and John Cage. We hope to bring these artists into the consciousness of not only the movie business, but the public at large.” Also coming to SpectreVision with Husom are clients Michal Jacaszek (Glimmer, Treny) and Mexican composer/electronica artist Murcof (The Versailles Sessions).
SpectreVision will again co-host the 30-day Nightmare City Horror Festival this October. Wood will return for Season 3 of FX’s Wilfred and his partners have recently completed their own directorial efforts: Noah with the Jerry Lewis-starrer Max Rose and Waller with the femme action pic Raze, out in 2014 via IFC.
