After lying dormant for a number of years following completion of the psychological thriller THE HOUSE IN THE WOODS, Abandoned House Productions was revived in 2014 to produce an intimate showcase performance of John Patrick Shanley's DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA in New York City. (starring co-owners Asta Paredes and Clay von Carlowitz.) Funds for this project were successfully raised through crowdsourcing on Indiegogo with the help of their loving friends, family and fans. Following a brief period of creative gestation, the now husband-and-wife duo are tackling all new kinds of demons and divisive subject matter together. First up was THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH , a sensory story written by Asta Paredes as her screenwriting & directorial debut. Followed by Clay's THE SHADOW SCARF and McKegg Collins' EROS POINT (which was a collaboration with Fitch Fort Films). These short films and more are preparing this duo for the feature length fare. Several projects in development including romantic thriller, MONIKER. (Written by Clay von Carlowitz as a 1st year anniversary gift to his wife) Clay and Asta are committed to evolving as storytellers in every capacity, regularly trading roles as writers, directors and actors. Dark souls with big hearts, they aspire to produce work that sheds some light on the struggles we face everyday as flawed people in a mixed-up world.
