ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

 

CLOWNTOWN is the first feature from director Tom Nagel.  Writer/Producer Jeff Miller has done nine previous features.  Nagel had worked as an actor on two of Miller’s films, JOLLY ROGER: MASSACRE AT CUTTER’S COVE (which Miller created and co-wrote) and THE BURNING DEAD.  Miller was impressed with the short films “The Retrieval” and “Relentless” that Tom had directed, and the two decided to team up to make a feature.  Tom’s brother, Brian, an accomplished actor, model, and producing partner with his brother, agreed to help produce and play the lead.  Friends of the Nagels, Christopher Lawrence Chapman (a filmmaker in his own right) and businessman Ronnie D. Lee, came aboard to help executive produce.  The Nagels’ cousin, Ryan Pilz, became Production Designer and First Assistant Director.  Ken Stachnik came aboard as Director of Photography.

 

CLOWNTOWN was shot in May 2015 in Crestline, Cleveland, and Westlake, OH.  For the Crestline portion of the shoot, the production based out of Robert Kurtzman’s P13 Entertainment, the noted FX shop that Miller had partnered with for his previous film AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN.  David “House” Greathouse, a veteran of Syfy’s “Face/Off,” handled the bulk of makeup FX and played one of the killer clowns.  Former wrestler Chris Hahn (who played the title role in AXE GIANT) played a menacing brute of a clown.  Several other talented actors and FX artists at P13 helped the movie come to fruition.
