Award-winning adult and horror filmmaker Ivan/ Slava Siderman proudly announces that he has come onboard as the Director of Photography for the upcoming mainstream short film, Becoming of Age.
The action-packed horror-thriller, about a young man taken in by his aunt & uncle after the murder of his parents – who may have inherited the same terrible traits his older brother possesses – brings Ivan back together with his frequent filmmaking partner John Gonzales, who wrote and directed the film.
“Once again John and I are reuniting to make gory magic. I think we are pretty close to a dozen projects together now, and it never gets old – it just gets more exciting for our way older eyes and bones,” said Ivan of the duo’s collaborations, including Y2K: Shut Down Detected and Roadside Killer, both of which have received numerous international awards and festival showings.
“We had a major studio filmmaker on our crew who specifically expressed how we work as a tight two-man filmmaking machine. It’s really 25 years of working together on something we love and cherish and it always shows in our work. I cannot wait to share John’s vision through my lighting and lens.”
