Bob Glazier will be playing the role of “Jacob” in Predatory Moon.

He has had an interest in Film, TV and Theatre since childhood. In his very first role he played one of the “Three Kings” in the third grade class play in Connecticut where he was born. After being transplanted to south Florida at the age of 9, he was at the movie theatre every Sat watching serials and horror films. Bob’s favorite actor is Vincent Price and is proud to say he has seen all of his films.

Bob was inspired by Kurt Russell when he had his first experience as an extra in Mean Season. Kurt took a liking to Bob and spent about an hour talking with him and encouraging him to follow his dream of becoming an actor.

Bob has had extensive training in acting and has had many featured roles in the TV shows Miami Vice and Maximum Bob. He considers himself to be a character actor and has had numerous principal and starring roles in independent, feature, and student films. He starred in the award-winning, Best Feature Film, Pharmboy, at the Gasparilla International Film Festival in 2013. He also starred in Realms of Blood where he played different characters in all three segments. He is also proud to be featured as the bad cop in American Gun (James Coburn’s last film).

Bob has recently completed starring roles in Amerikan Holokaust, PawnZ, Mr. Engagement, Demon, Rough Cut, Fury; the tales of Ronan Pearce, Dark Woods, The Other Side, The Assignment and Phobias to name a few. He was also featured in numerous short films and music videos.

He is currently working on other projects.

Predatory Moon will be the directorial debut of screenwriter and F/X artist Shiva Rodriguez.

Shiva developed an interest in makeup and practical effects when she was very young. She got her start by torturing her younger brother before getting involved in school theatre and television production classes. After graduating she worked in prop fabrication, F/X makeup, and costume design for theatrical events and Halloween attractions before landing a job in the wardrobe department of “Terror on Church Street” in Orlando, FL.

In 1998 she and her husband began producing stage plays and live combat shows, then ten years later they moved into working on film and video projects. While she primarily works as an F/X artist, Shiva has also developed skills as an art director, set designer, and screenwriter.

She was recently involved with the feature films Dangerous People and Rough Cut, as well as the live-action comic series Moonie VS. the Spider Queen.

SPOTLIGHT: Jonathan Foster

Posted: April 18, 2013 in Meet the Cast

Jonathan will be playing the role of “Dean” in Predatory Moon.

He’s always been interested in acting, and played various parts all through school including Charlie Brown in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” during his senior year. After high school he fell away from acting, but recently started taking the stage again with the troupe “Accio Actors”.

In the past year, Jonathan has performed in  “Trek”, a Star Trek spoof musical and the independent films, Guests and I Killed a Superhero

He’s excited to be a part of Predatory Moon as it’s a role that he can really “sink his teeth into”.

P.J. will be working in the Wardrobe Department of Predatory Moon.

A sophomore at the University of Central Florida, he got involved in acting when he was a young child but spent most of his time playing football. After graduating from high school, he rededicated his time toward his love for acting.

Last year he began modeling, and has recently begun to seek roles in film. He’d like to go to the New York Film Academy or Pace University to hone his skills as an actor and director. He wants to work on both sides of the camera and be an “onion” (have many layers of what he brings to the table).

P.J. plans to pursue a degree in Business Marketing so that he can better market himself in the crazy world of entertainment.

HOWL OUT! Gary B. Gross & Coptech

Posted: April 11, 2013 in Howl-Outs

Special thanks going out to Gary B. Gross and his company, Coptech for supplying an important prop for Predatory Moon!

Jonathan joins the crew as a Medic and a Production Assistant.

Professionally, Jonathan is an EMS working for a private ambulance company and the New Smyrna Speedway. However, he’s a big fan of horror movies and enjoys working on genre projects.

Asides from helping out behind-the-scenes, he has been both a zombie and an evil clown in Horrorscapes and played a zombie in the Undead Nation web series. As a child, he also came in second place for a video on “America’s Funniest Videos” with his clip entitled “Video Game Boy”.

He’s also a huge video game and comic book fan.

Gus steps up his game this year as the Executive Producer of Predatory Moon.

At the tender age of eight months, he made his acting debut as “Henry VIII” in an independent feature film in 2010. After deciding that he really enjoyed all the attention in the spotlight (and of all his adoring fans on set), he went on to make a cameo appearance in a short film later that same year.

Then tragedy struck as he developed an addiction to catnip, which greatly crippled his performances on set.

Gus soon realized that the real attention could be found behind-the-scenes and soon became a familiar face in production meetings. A true pioneer in the industry, he’s best known for his philosophy that the best films are made by not worrying about the silly little things like “scripts” and “notes”. He regularly enforces his policies by ripping out pages of screenplays and hiding pens.

Happy April Fool’s Day!
