My name is Tristan Clay and I love to write murders and film them. All for the art, of course! Growing up, I was not allowed to watch rated R films...although I secretly watched many anyways. I was always fascinated by how a film was created, the SPFX, the actors. Pretty much everything intrigued me about the film making process.
I believe that in the horror genre you can focus the real terrors in the world or touchy topics that you can't do in other genres, or isn't usually seen in other film genres. In horror, there is no limit to what can be done. I've had a passion for film before my love for horror started, but that passion propelled my film making passion and shined a light on what I would truly love to do for the rest of my life. When I met Destinie, it made perfect sense to team up and let our passions bleed through together.
I've been into the horror genre since I was a young girl, my first horror film in a theater was Freddy VS Jason, I was 6 years old and was over the moon with emotion and love for what I thought was such an insanely cool film. I remember going to video rental stores and picking the horror films with the coolest covers or the ones I've seen over and over, which eventually turned into childhood favorites.
Fifteen years later, horror is practically my full blown lifestyle. I collect merchandise and movies like a kid in a candy store and watch the genre religiously. I've always been into writing since elementary school, and would usually write horror-related tales of carnage. Since childhood, I also had a dream of being in horror films or apart of them somehow, whether it be writing, SPFX, directing, producing, acting...I never thought it was possible to make my dream a reality until I met Tristan. I sent him a short story I did for Creative Writing in high school and it spawned into Red Eye. We took our common passion and love for horror and made a feature-length film. We never gave up and were determined to do what we've always dreamed of. It's such a surreal feeling to do something for the genre that has impacted my life so much; it's an ultimate fulfillment in my life. I still pinch myself and geek out on every set I go to, even if it's my own.
