Welcome back to the 1980s, when slashers rule the silver screen, arcade games are king and your next nightmare is as close as the local video store.

For the staff of ATOMIC VIDEO, tonight is going to be, one Hell of a night...
It was during the last night, inside the last Blockbuster Video in Tucson, Arizona that Emmy® winning writer/director, Wade Stai realized from this moment forward, there would be entire generations who would never know what it was like to wander the aisles of a video store on a Friday night with their friends and family only to discover some hidden gem among the titles on the shelf. FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS was created for all the kids who will grow up not knowing what a videocassette is or how video stores changed the way we experience entertainment forever. It's not a sequel. It's not a remake. It's not PG-13... It's the return of analog horror! CURRENT STATUS: *NOW IN PRODUCTION*

The true number of women who fell victim to these horrific crimes remains a mystery to this day.SURVIVE was written and produced in the summer of 2008, the film premiered October 25th for two, sold out audiences on the opening night of the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival in Phoenix. The project was also selected to screen as part of the Phoenix Comicon International Film Festival in May of 2008. Festival screeners were available for a limited time on DVD, available exclusively at the Shadoworks booth at the HorrorHound Weekend and Phoenix Comicon. Inspired by disturbing true events, SURVIVE was planned as an independent feature film. This short was intended to act as a proof of concept to help establish the style and tone of the project for potential investors. On November 22, one month after the premiere, the economy collapsed along with any hope of finding investors... The feature film development is currently shelved at SHADOWORKS®.

Director of Photography & Second Unit DirectorWade StaiProduction Year: 2011Running Time 90 MinutesBlu Ray | DVD | HD Digital | UNRATED Hoping to find proof of the paranormal, five film students set out to document the legendary Copper Queen Hospital. But as the sun goes down, they experience something far worse than they ever could have imagined and they find themselves pursued by a blood thirsty maniac.
ANIMUS was written and produced by make-up effects artist Quin Davis in 2011. Wade joined the project as Director of Photography and 2nd Unit Director. During casting, Wade recommended both lead actresses, Megan Davis (Maya) and Caitlin Singer (Angel) whom he worked with previously. Made on a shoestring budget, ANIMUS was a fun, but challenging production for all involved. The film was distributed in 2013. While uncredited, Wade shot and directed almost the entire second half of the film while Quin was busy prepping the make-up gags and creature FX. Several of Wade's scenes appear on his recent reel.
