ED- The Eerie Digest is thrilled to introduce Writer/Director/Producer Alyn Darnay from the East Coast’s land of sunshine, Florida. Alyn it’s so great to see so many great works being created on the East Coast.  Many viewers have forgotten that Film does not totally revolve around Hollywood. Tell us about your beginnings and how you have risen in the film business.

AD- Thanks for asking Joseph, and yes there is great work going on in Florida, always has been. As to my beginnings here’s a condensed version. I began in LA, as most of us have. I was a reader first, and then did work at MGM and 20th before settling down at Famous Players Corp. under Academy Award Winner Albert Zugsmith. Learned a lot from that guy. Then I took off for Europe and worked on films for companies in Rome, Paris and England. Back in the States 4 years later I found a home in Chicago doing commercials for some of the biggest agencies and companies in the world. Proctor & Gamble, McDonald’s, NBC, Sears, Volkswagen, Conoco Oil, Kraft, M&M Mars, Oscar Meyer, Hilton, Gerber, Entenmann’s, Swift & Company, Green Giant, and Quaker to name a few. I moved to Miami in 1992 and formed Chaos Films to provide Film, Video, and HD services throughout South Florida, The Keys, and the Caribbean. (more…)
