Today I talk with Vanessa Wright and Kevin Peterson about their film Rainy Season, based on the short story by Stephen King.
A young couple arrive in the town of Willow, ME for summer vacation. After warnings from town locals to leave, they stay and learn the horrific price the town must pay for prosperity. Writer & Director Vanessa Wright seized the opportunity to obtain the non-exclusive rights to Stephen King’s Rainy Season through his special program.
One of the coolest things about Stephen King is that he has a program called “Dollar Babies” (See this link for more information) that allow for students of film to license some of his work that is currently not licensed to any projects. Once a project is approved, students actually have the permission to use one of his stories to develop their own skills and to put out a film with a significant pedigree. In order to bring this dark tale to life, she assembled a creative dream team, consisting of Director of Photography Mark Simon and Executive Producer Samantha Kolesnik.
