Private Project

Cry Baby River

Ghost Tales may come and go but it's how their story is told that leaves the impact. Anna, a host for a National TV Show "CryptBusters", is scouting the Cry Baby River legend for a future show. Since CryptBusters fakes all their effects and technology she feels safe. With her family in tow, she sets up to capture footage and interviews for the show. But this time the ghost lingers even after production stops.

Director Biography - Justin Gorun

Justin Gorun is a teacher and screenwriter. Having started in the field of music, he earned a degree in Music Industry from Middle Tennessee State University after studying at Berklee College of Music.

Director Statement

This is usually supposed to be some kind of grand statement, or a comment on my guiding vision or something like that, but ultimately it is simplicity itself...story first. Interesting things happening to interesting people...character and story...are really the only things that matter in the end.
