Shooting The "Jabberwock"

Mark L. Lester's American World Pictures (AWP), reports the completion of principal photography on the sci fi/fantasy feature "Jabberwock", directed by Steven R. Monroe ("I Spit on Your Grave: Unrated") starring Canadian actor Tahmoh Penikett ("Battlestar Galactica") and UK actress Kacey Barnfield ("Resident Evil: Afterlife"):

Lensed in Bulgaria, "Jabberwock" is written by Raul Inglis and Rafael Jordan, co-starring Richard Riddell ("The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus"), Ian Virgo ("Black Hawk Down") and Michael Worth ("God’s Ear").

"Anytime you get to shoot a period piece project like 'Jabberwocky' with sets, wardrobe, swords and creatures, you are like a kid in the candy store", said Monroe.

"Also when you get to assemble a great diverse cast to be in that atmosphere it adds yet another level of excitement. Everyone just kind of falls into place and into character when they land in all these elements and it's just really fun as a director to be in the middle of all that. Shooting in Bulgaria was a huge plus for this production, even with all the winter weather hitting us it just added to the whole vibe of the project."

"...'Jabberwocky' chronicles the story of a young squire (Worth) who, alongside his brother (Penikett), must become a warrior to save his people and the woman he loves (Kacey Barnfield) after a horrific beast is unleashed on the Kingdom..."
