Writer / Director Jac Kessler, of Pale Moonlight Cinema, strives to provide an audience something they've never experienced before. His films invite you to think differently about human nature, aiming to draw laughs in weird places, smiles in others, and to re-examine 'what is' horror itself.
In his debut festival run, Kessler's Dyscrasia (a psychological thriller/horror short) has done just that. Winning Best Director at HorrorHound Film Festival and nominated for Best Short Film, and elsewhere, Best Editing, and a Golden Spotlight, his work captures attention.
Kessler's adaptation of the Stephen King property 'Popsy' achieved recognition during its festival run, winning Best Short Film at The Magic of Horror Film Festival, Best Thriller at Bare Bones Film & Music Festival, and nominated for a Mora Award at Terror in the Bay Film Festival. Working with Ted Raimi, one of the film's supporting villains, 'Mr. Reggie', was a delight.
Kessler is currently working on an episodic horror series, "Scryer". Episode 01's screenplay is currently making its festival run.
