Local filmmaker provides a creative outlet for Berlin

November 07, 2012
BERLIN Aspiring filmmaker, Chris Dubey, of Berlin, had a vision of providing a creative outlet for himself and others after his involvement in Horrorfest sparked his interest in film-making, and now he is doing just that.

Dubey has always had an infatuation with film and theater. He is a participant of Horrorfest, part of the annual RiverFire. He has worked with Theater North in developing new ideas to improve Horrorfest every year. In the process, theater art sparked a desire in him to make films.

"Laura Jamison (coordinator of Horrorfest) gives us a lot of creative freedom and it has helped to awaken this passion," said Dubey.

Dubey took film and video communication classes in 2001 at Champlain College and is now building his own production company. Since April of last year, he has made three Horrorfest Survival Guide promotional videos, some promotional videos for Theater North, two music videos, two short films, and sketches for some comedy skits for a previous project.

"I have been fortunate to find instrumental people to work with," he said. "I would like to thank my family and everyone I work with for being very supportive."

His first film project was a video for local hard-rock band Purenform for their song "Drown". He has also filmed a video for the local punk band, Modern Day Rippers.

The 2012 New Hampshire 48 Hour Film Project awarded Dubey and his crew best costuming award for the short film he directed last summer titled "Dupin's Daydreams." The project gives film-makers with little or no budget two days to complete a short film and submit. He also plans to enter next year's 48 Hour Film Project.

His most recent film is titled "Chain," a short horror movie made in Berlin. Dubey has always been fascinated with the horror genre' and so has the main character in the short film, Rina-fay Monroe. She has worked with him on most of his projects. She is also a volunteer for Horrorfest and has been acting on stage with Theater North since she was a kid.

"Stage acting has always been my strength, but, for the last year or so, I have just been doing short films and really getting into it. It's been fantastic. We have been doing this since January, and really have become like family through our projects. Chris has an abstract mind, that's what makes his ideas so great," said Monroe.

Other production crew members include Dubey's brother Jonathan Dubey, Joe Danoski, and Tyler Fowler, all of Berlin.

Dubey and his production crew encourage anyone who may want to get involved with his projects, especially actors, actresses, writers, bands, and musicians. Anybody who wants to discuss ideas with Mr. Dubey can contact him at www.facebook.com/chris.dubey.
